Manga Review: The Promised Neverland V 2 by Kaiu Shirai & Posuka Demizu @shonenjump @vizmedia


May Contain Spoilers

This is a really unique series. I don’t even know how to categorize it. Horror for sure. Sci-fi? Dystopian? Post-apocalyptic? We have been shown a tiny part of the world that the orphans of Grace Field House reside in, and I am so curious to learn about what lies on the other side of the wall. Monsters, we know. That eat children. Maybe I don’t want to see that, after all.

This is a free read at Vizmedia.com, so, after verifying that most of the others volumes in the series are also available at my local library, I downloaded it to my Viz app. After all of the sports and fight manga I’ve been reading, I needed a little break, and a romcom looked like a good choice.

Manga Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Part 1—Phantom Blood V 1 by Hirohiko Araki


May Contain Spoilers

I saw this in the library catalog, so I put a hold on it. When I went to pick it up, I was surprised to see that it’s a sturdy, well made hardcover.
