Is spring still a gleam in your eye? In the manga world, there’s a lot of new titles poking up through the snow, ready to bloom into your favorite new series. Still, until you can catch a flight for spring break and set up shop on a beach, there’s plenty of time to cuddle up with a hot chocolate and a good book under a blanket. Fire up those computers and get ready to order-in some reading material that someone else can schlep through the snow to deliver, because it’s time for the US/Canada manga releases for March 2014!
