Whew, it’s been way too long since I’ve done one of these. This is mainly due to, well, not really finding anything in particular to talk about. When I originally decided to do this, I wanted to pick up books that were a little more obscure. Possible to obtain, but really trying to avoid any “HEY HAVE YOU HEARD OF THIS LITTLE THING CALLED ONE PIECE.” But between a high volume of manga now being translated and legally released online, combined with not really finding anything that clicked with me, the task was a bit harder than I imagined. I also didn’t want to fall into a slump of “here’s just an average book, I guess” every time I wrote.
With that, I will try to write any future “Randomly Picked Manga” when I do find something that lights a spark, rather than just any ol’ thing I find. Since I frequent my local comic shop more than I should, there’s no doubt I will find something. Not too long ago, after hearing a good amount of buzz, I decided to pick up the first volume of Koe no Katachi and, luckily enough, it was the exact thing I was looking for.
