Bookshelf Overload: February 2015

JooooooJoooooo! It’s finally here! By far the manga I was most excited to get my hands on in February was Hirohiko Araki’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Part 1: Phantom Blood, Volume 1. I’m thankful for the manga’s recent anime adaptation, otherwise I’m not sure we would have ever seen the series licensed in English. Viz has done a beautiful job with the release. (I hope to have an in-depth review of the volume in the near future.) Other February manga releases that I was particularly happy to see included Prophecy, Volume 2 by Tetsuya Tsutsui, the second omnibus of Satoshi Mizukami’s Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer (the first volume surprised me, and I’m very curious to see where the series goes), and Gangsta, Volume 5 by Kohske. I’m also looking forward to reading the second Milkyway Hitchhiking omnibus, a gorgeous full-color manhwa by Sirial. And because February usually means Valentine’s Day sales on romance manga, I managed to pick up a random assortment of boys’ love manga by creators whose other work I’ve enjoyed in the past for a great price.
