I rounded up this week’s new manga at MTV Geek; it’s an interesting list this week, with the classic Tank Tankuro, two new CLAMP volumes from Dark Horse and Yen Press, and a boatload of new volumes from Viz. Sean Gaffney takes a look at next week’s new releases at A Case Suitable for Treatment.
Special guest author Shaenon Garrity takes over the House of 1000 Manga column to write about the vintage CLAMP manga Wish.

News from Japan: Vol. 63 of One Piece is the seventh volume of that series to have a record-breaking print run, this time of 3.9 million copies. The Mayoi Neko Overrun! manga has come to a sudden end, “due to circumstances,” according to the editors of Jump Square magazine. That’s about as generic an explanation as you can get. More Jump Square news: Seven different Shueisha magazines will publish manga stories based on Tomohiro Matsu’s Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! (Listen to me, girls. I am your father!) light novels. And the editors of Shueisha’s Super Dash Bunko magazine will start a new manga magazine in the fall.
Reviews: Michelle Smith and Melinda Beasi take on CLAMP, Pokemon, and the new manga magazine, Gen, in their latest Off the Shelf column at Manga Bookshelf.
