Coming and goings at Shonen Jump Alpha

Here’s my look at this week’s new manga releases at MTV Geek. With a new edition of Paradise Kiss, new Drops of God, new Yotsuba&!, new Ghost in the Shell, and new Fairy Tail, it’s a good week.

The Manga Village bloggers pick their favorites from last week’s new releases.

There’s a change in the lineup at Shonen Jump Alpha: Barrage ended this week, and a new sports manga, Cross Manage, starts running on October 1. Also, Viz is publishing a printed SJ Alpha Yearbook, with a one-shot manga by Akira Toriyama and Masakazu Katsura (who will be appearing at NYCC), and another story, Otter No. 11, which is a manga-within-the-manga in Bakuman. Viz will mail the yearbook out to SJ Alpha subscribers, and it will also be available at NYCC.

The Vertical blog is back! The new intern, Chris, kicks it off with posts about Moyoco Anno’s visit to NYCC and his life as an intern in the Vertical offices.

News from Japan: Watch for a new manga from Tohou Project in the December issue of Kadokawa Ace.
