New manga

Today is Wednesday and that means Diamond shipments are put out on comics shop shelves.

This week three titles stand out:

GTO The Early Years v.8 - the latest in the original Onizuka manga published years earlier in Japan than GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka.

Peace Maker v.4 a Shinsengumi centered manga about Ichimura Tetsunosuke and his experiences in the 1860s. Amazing how many fan sites for the manga and anime miss the fact that he actually existed.

Disappearance Diary by Hideo Azuma - God I've waited months for this one. this is an autobiographical manga about the experiences of a manga artist including when he ended up homeless and alcoholic.
