Last weekend, at the Anime Boston convention, comic distributor Kodansha introduced a list of several new manga. The six titles introduced included a new Persona manga, a new Vinland Saga to break the hiatus, and an original horror manga about cats.
Attack on Titan 16 Special Edition
This special edition contains a set of premium-quality playing cards, each with a unique piece of full-color art, alongside the volume. The manga additionally comes with a dust jacket featuring original variant art by a well-known Western comics creator, whose name has yet to be announced.
Cat Diary: Yon & Myu
More of a horror/comedy, the manga is a single 120-page book, following the “autobiographical” tale of the author’s girlfriend, and the two cats that move in along with her. From the pen of horror master Junji Ito, this is absolutely a must have for any lovers of spooks, laughs, or both.
The manga is based on the 3DS game of the same name, following the story of a high school boy trying to survive when his world is suddenly overcome by demons. The game had a sequel released in 2011 in Japan.
Ninja Slayer Kills
The manga is an adaption of the popular Ninja Slayer novel series, which is also being adapted into a highly anticipated anime. The bloody, ultra-violent story centers around a ninja-killing Grim Reaper in a spree for vengeance.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth P3/P4
The popular 3DS game series has been adapted into manga before, this new title being another to add to the family. This manga is also available on Crunchyroll, for those who so desire.
After suffering a hiatus, Vinland Saga is making its return with the sixth and seventh volumes coming out in September and December, respectively. The series, written and illustrated by award-winning author Makoto Yumikura, is a fantastical account of Danish king Cnut the Great’s invasion of England.
