Erica Friedman takes a look at the Japanese manga magazine Monthly Comic @Bunch:
Compared with other Seinen magazines, Monthly Comic @Bunch feels very much as if the editorial staff’s main requirement is that the artists draw something they want to draw, as opposed to something that will sell. As a result, there’s no one cohesive thread in Bunch’s choices. Explosion- and violence-filled “BTOOOM!” by Inoue Junya sits side by side with Mizu Asato’s children-and-animals story ”Meina no Fukurou.”
Sounds good to me!
