Owner-san returns with yet more glad tidings of a new manga week that includes several pretty kick ass statues and figures. Attack on Titan, Puella Magi Madoka, and Shining Ark all have new figures in this week. The Eren Yeager is particularly awesome. Also worthy of mention is the new Black Bird manga box set with the entire collected 18 volume series plus exclusive, available nowhere but in this box release (damn their black hearts), ‘Memorial Illustration Book’. Owner-san is determined not to break into the box to see it, though he is extremely tempted.
Final Fantasy and Princess Mononoke fans both have some interesting visual material this week as well.
Sky Art of Final Fantasy HC 01 is the first of three hardcover volumes of original design sketches and artwork from the Final Fantasy games. Yoshitaka Amano art from Final Fantasy 1, 2, and 3 fill this enormous hardcover book.
Princess Mononoke First Story Hardcover is the design sketches and original drafts of the story that would eventually become the Studio Ghibli movie of the same name. Miyazaki storyboards the first form of the story that would eventually evolve into the Ghibli film with his sketches. The many, many generations of tweaks and adjustments he went through mean this first concept is a totally different story from what we saw in the movie.

In new manga beginning this week we have three titles.
Firstly we have Alice, this time in the Country of Diamonds Bet On My Heart Novel (the first time she’s been there). Alice finds more has changed in this move than just the country. No one seems to know who she is or are as she remembers them. What exactly is going on in the Country of Diamonds?
Also beginning this week is No Game No Life. Sora and Shiro are brother and sister urban legends in the gaming community; they are also completely self exiled from every other social group. All that changes when they are transported to a world where everything is decided by games. Humanity is losing fast, can the siblings become saviors?
The third new title for the week is Witchcraft Works. The author, as far as Owner-san can tell, has only a single stand-alone book other than Witchcraft Works to her name. Owner-san found that quite surprising as the art is quite good, he might call it spectacular. Tougetsu Academy seems like any other private high school but there are several students that are more than they seem. Honoka Takamiya is being counted as among these students but he has no idea why. Idol of the school Ayaka Kagari has taken it upon herself to protect him because he’s her princess. Owner-san is both confused and intrigued and looking forward to reading more.

Despite looming book-keeping deadlines and with ever growing list manga and anime that must be ordered, shipped, cleared and received Owner-san is going to find some time to dig into the new manga for the week. If he couldn’t read manga after all, what would be the point of being Owner-san? However this DOES mean there will be (as always) no time to pause.

Owner-san returns with the glad tidings of this week’s new manga (plus a few pretty badass figures) not to mention a few updates on Neo Tokyo’s immediate future. Owner-san has finalized arrangement for the Forest City Comic-Con (at last) and can now say with certainty that Neo Tokyo will have a table for the event. Owner-san has also learned that as an extension of the Forest City Comic-Con there will be an event going on at Fanshawe College on Monday the 20th of October and Neo Tokyo will also have a table there too. Owner-san will try to find out more of the details and post them shortly. Owner-san is looking forward to seeing everyone at the Forest City Comic-Con this weekend as well as at Fanshawe on Monday but now on to the good news of today.
In the realm of brand new titles Neo Tokyo has two this week Magical Girl Apocalypse and Ajin Demi-Human.
Magical Girl Apocalypse is a tough book to describe. It essentially seems to be an apocalypse horror story where the horrible unkillable things that are slaughtering everything in their path happen to be extraordinarily creepy magical girls. It definitely has a High School of the Dead feel to it (especially when the dead start to rise) in the art, setting and action (which has a Battle Royale feel to it) but the creepy (like super, UBER creepy) goth loli magical girls take it in a different direction. Owner-san is unsure if it goes a lot deeper than that or if this is just the author venting rage against the usual goth loli magical girl manga that represents a large proportion of manga, or maybe he’s just looking for a way to put magical girls on the page like we HAVEN’T seen before. If that’s the case he’s nailed it, much like the gym teachers head on page 14.
Ajin Demi-Human is another dark manga with a pretty high (though nothing like Magical Girl Apocalypse) body count. Ajin is less of a horror / action story and more of a thriller though. To Owner-san’s eye the art as a bit of a Hellsing look to it and it certainly is every bit as dark. It follows high schooler Kei who we discover (as does he) isn’t actually human. However he doesn’t know this until after he is killed and it doesn’t stick. Now that the news is out however it seems everyone wants to cut him up to find out what he IS, something that he’d very much like to know too.

Neo Tokyo has just received a big shipment that he is retasking to go to the Con this weekend that includes many all new items, never before seen in Neo Tokyo. Owner-san still has that plus two more shipments to get sorted before the day of the Con arrives not to mention an immense horde of requests and reorders to get listed and sent to various suppliers. No time to pause.

Neo Tokyo’s new manga shipment is in and sorted out and it’s looking pretty good. We have three new titles beginning this week plus several more that Owner-san has been enjoying and looking forward to. In fact Owner-san can’t see one book on the list that wouldn’t qualify as at least a good read, perhaps not to every taste but as far as quality goes this is a very good week. Owner-san has plans to sit down with Knights of Sidonia, Natsume’s Book of Friends, Vinland Saga, and (inexplicably given Owner-san general genre preferences) My Love Story.
New this week in manga we have Honey Blood, Manga Dogs, and World Trigger.
Honey Blood, originally Mitsu Aji Blood, is the first english language release (to Owner-san’s knowledge) for author Mitsuki Miko despite having quite a few titles published in Japanese. Hinata is a normal school girl. When several neighbourhood crime scenes are discovered however she begins to suspect there is something not at all normal about her new neighbour. To begin with he is a romance novelist who claims to have never been kissed.
Manga Dogs, from the creator of ‘I Am Here’ and ‘Missions of Love, is a satire of the manga making world. Kanna Tezuka, a 15 year old professional mangaka, joins her schools manga club only to discover it is a train wreck. The club’s only three other members, three delusional pretty boy artist wannabees, latch onto her and threaten to destroy any chance of her getting any work done.
World Trigger is a shonen title where Earth is under siege by giant monsters called Neighbors. Osamu Mikumo is a trainee agent of Border, the elite warriors who defend Earth. Osamu is astonished when he learns the new boy in school is actually a humanoid Neighbor. With good action and excellent art Owner-san is looking forward to finding out where World Trigger goes.

Owner-san has just learned that a large number of books that he’d reordered have vanished into the electronic mists of a distributor’s computer. The good news being that know this Owner-san can get them back on track to coming in to Neo Tokyo, the bad news that he has to go through the re-ordering process for them again. Not to be forgotten is the enormous list of anime that needs to be found for waiting otaku or replaced on Neo Tokyo’s shelves to say nothing of the catalogs of new anime about to be released. Fortunately Owner-san can’t get enough of ordering manga and anime so it is something of a win / win situation but still and as always… no time to pause.

Neo Tokyo has had a barrage of mini shipments come in this week along with a rather huge collection of like new manga that Owner-san has finally finished researching and sorting. He now has a mountain of manga (plus everything else that’s arrived) to try and find a home for until the otaku descend upon it.
Owner-san has also come into come collections of out of print and hard to find manga that Neo Tokyo will be selling as collections. Owner-san has posted which he’s found, whether they’re complete stories, and what they were going for (roughly) on Amazon (.com) though the Amazon prices are US $ and don’t factor in any shipping so they’ll most likely end up being substantially more than that to get to the door. Owner-san has only one of each and it is very much a case of the early otaku gets the manga. Don’t delay as these may not surface again.

Owner-san has also been toiling away with the minions to finally catch up on the mountains of discs that have been slated to go into the rental library. The new release section is finally being populated again and Owner-san hopes to have most (if not all) of the new releases caught up and expects to have probably something in the vicinity of 70 new discs on the rental wall. Many hours of photo-shopping are in Owner-san’s immediate future. No time to pause.
