We’re already in the middle of September, and it’ll quickly go by, meaning we’ll be leaving summer and heading back into autumn. So it’ll be time to pull out the hoodies and snuggle up with some manga!

Till then, let’s wait out the summer heat with some more good manga releases!

Here’s five of our picks for the week of September 18, 2017!

NICHIJOU: MY ORDINARY LIFE Vol. 10 By KEIICHI ARAWAI

Last volume alert! If you haven’t picked up Vertical Comics “My Ordinary Life” now would be a perfect time to do so. You can now enjoy the entire series nonstop!

“A game of musical chairs takes a sharp turn. nano pulls out all the stops in a battle against a fry thief. a bizarre body-swap situation occurs in the shinonome household. yuuko displays a talent for naming things. we get a glimpse of mio’s dream job, as everyone writes a letter to their future selves…”

 

Peach Heaven Vol. 6 by Mari Yoshino

For those of you who want something more on the sexier side, take a look at Kodansha’s title Peach heaven, drool, and then starting reading today!

“At first glance, Momoko Shina may appear to be nothing more than your average high school girl, but she has a secret identity—as the famous erotica author “George Aihara”! After she witnesses an intimate moment between one of her teachers and the supermodel Ranmaru, she borrows a little too much from reality in an effort to beat the deadline on her latest story. When Ranmaru gets wind of this, he makes Momoko an offer she can’t refuse … Watch the sparks fly as these two try to figure each other out in this high-tension romantic comedy!”

 

As the Gods Will: The Second Series, Volume 20 by Muneyuki Kaneshiro, Akeji Fujimura

In Kodansha’s “As the Gods Will” you’ll looking at something more on the quirky side of manga, but we all know that in many cases the quirkier the manga, the better is it.

This one contains some interesting ways of looking and survivability.

“Bessatsu Shonen Magazine’s hugely popular story of survival and suspense moves to Weekly Shonen Magazine as a completely brand-new series! With the appearance of a strange daruma doll, ordinary life crumbles away in an instant. Even so, live on. Survive. This is the story of the “life” bestowed upon all those who have wished to die. Are you beef or chicken? Live, that’s the only rule.”

 

House of the Sun, Volume 7 by Taamo

The drama, great character development, and twists and turns continue in the seventh entry of one of the best slice of life manga on the market today!

“The moving account of a young woman who reconnects with a childhood friend as she puts together the pieces of her life following her parents’ broken marriage. As a child, Mao spent all her time at Hiro’s house across the street. Going to his house always made her feel cheerful. A few years later, Mao’s father gets remarried and Mao finds herself with nowhere to call home. Hiro ends up letting her stay with him in the house he’s been occupying alone since the death of his parents. A love story unfolds, between two childhood friends of different ages.”

 

Fuuka, Volume 14 by Kouji Seo

Opposites attracting is always a staple of the romance genre and Fuuka has proven to be quite the story. Sure, it follows the formula pretty closely, but there’s another individual quirk added in to make it feel fresh!

“New meetings always come suddenly! The protagonist, Yuu Haruna, moves into a new town where he meets a somewhat strange girl who doesn’t have a cell phone. The girl, Fuuka, seems to have a strange allure that draws people to her, very much like a summer breeze. Looks like Yuu has been caught up in one wild love story!”
