Hot Off the Press!

This week’s highlights, with commentary from the NFNT gang:

Natsume3cover

Natsume’s Book of Friends – Season 3 Premium Edition (NIS America)
Jenny: I don’t think I can gush enough about Natsume’s Book of Friends.  It’s a wonderful anime and and I hope NIS eventually releases streamlined editions so they’ll be more practical for libraries to pick up (though I totally covet the frilly ones for myself).

StrobeEdge3

Strobe Edge Volume 3 (Viz, 9781421550701)
Jenny: Strobe Edge is shaping up to be an engaging shojo series about first love, thinking for yourself, and dealing with life’s one constant – change.

TrigunMB

Trigun: Multiple Bullets (Dark Horse, 9781616551056)
Jenny: I’m excited to read Nightow’s new flashback story and interested to see what theother contributors do with his classic, lovable, doughnut-devouring hero and his wild west sci-fi setting.
