1. Requiem of the Rose King Vol. 6 by Aya Kanno

First up we have Viz Media’s Requiem of the Rose King Volume 6.

Check out the description:

Now that Edward has sired an heir, Richard is further from the throne than ever before. As losses mount on all sides of the battle to rule, loyalties are tested, and the scheming Margaret steps in with her own army to twist the war to fit her master plan.

 

2. Genshiken: Second Season Vol. 10 by Shimoku Kio

The tenth volume in this manga continues the super interesting, hobby-heavy story that makes regular things that people obsess over become extraordinary!

Genshiken Second Season Volume 10 Description:

“A new academic year means new members for the lovably misfit Genshiken: The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture! Club president Chika Ogiue now has to manage a fresh-faced trio of yaoi fans (one of whom dabbles in cross-dressing), a surly American transfer student with a penchant for obscure anime quotes, and her own rising career as a professional manga artist. Can she actually find time to draw her own vanity project for Comic-Fest?”

 

3. In/Spectre Vol. 4 by Chashiba Katase (art) and Kyo Shirodaira (original story)

Dead idol? Murder mystery? If either of those sound interesting to you, then we highly recommend the series In/Spectre and the fourth volume of it is out as well. Things definitely seem to be getting pretty interesting!

In/Spectre Volume 4 Description:

“Whether or not the spectre of a dead idol is real, the urban legend of “Steel Lady Nanase” feeds people’s imaginations and results in a murder that hits close to home for Saki. This brutal death causes the legend to further balloon out of control, and Kotoko and Kurô must devise a lie that can counteract the belief that such a dangerous ghost even exists. But matters become complicated when the group discovers that the person behind the myth may be someone Kurô has known all along…What powers can bring a ghost to life, and what motivated this trickery?”

That’s when Yuu sees the beautiful student council president Nanami turn down a suitor with such maturity and finesse that Yuu is inspired to ask her for advice.
