One Response to “July 2013 New Manga Releases”

  1. Julie says:

    I’m boggled by the categorization here. It’s perfectly reasonable to divide manga as shonen/shojo/older reader, but in what alternate universe are Alice in the Country of Clover, Natsume’s Book of Friends and Oresama Teacher shonen, and Kingdom Hearts and K-On! shojo? Since when is IKKI, home of I’ll Give it My All … Tomorrow, a shonen magazine?

    I realize there’s a lot of titles to check over every month, and I thank you for putting together the handy list, but if it’s too much trouble to figure out the correct demographic it would be better just to list them without it.
