April 2014 New Manga Releases


April 2014 New Manga Releases

Cherry blossom season is sweeping across the globe, so why not get in on the action by bringing your favorite manga’s new volume to read under the splendid trees? Some books on the list have moved into the “Adult” category to better represent who will get the most out of readership, so if you don’t see a Shonen or Shojo title in the regular area, be sure to check the Seinen, Josei, and Mature listings. Highlights for your viewing pleasure: The first Sword Art Online novel comes out this month, along with a couple of Gen manga’s indie manga, and a score of brand new shojo titles too. So, until next time, get out and enjoy Hanami with a good book from the list of US/Canada manga new releases for April 2014!
