So, Japan. How about that second season?


I still hope it will be released in spring 2014, just before the World Cup in Brazil.


That would be nice. Come on, Japan. You know you want to do it.

Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou will probably adapted into an anime...
Well a lot of manga get adapted into live action TV show or movie and never get adapted into anime, because of the perception that live action shows can appeal to a much broader audience. In this case, there is really no need for an anime because all the benefits of anime adaption like boosting the sales of the original can be found in a live action show adaptation.

Biblia still kicking ass, anime when?
No anime, at least absolutely no news about it, because the priority has gone to a live action TV show, which makes anime perhaps less likely.

glad to see Haigakura on the list. I completely forgot that I was reading it T.T

Very happy to see these manga. Though Dengeki Daisy deserves a whole lot more sales.

Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai ranked. I'll be picking that up soon.

Feb 11, 2013 8:06 PM by shinkeikaku

Wait... why is it suddenly (mostly) manga I haven't heard of before? o_o

And some of them are quite interesting... even one of Nakamura Asumiko's works are on the list!! >:O

Need to get to reading some of them!!

Feb 11, 2013 7:59 PM by Mirorin

Feb 11, 2013 2:55 PM by Mr_Gutts

Knights and Magick looks interesting. Would like to read it.

Feb 11, 2013 1:41 PM by underoath777

Silver spoon strong

Give us a Switch Girl anime before the manga ends, which is very soon.. Those sales.. would make a great show, but I guess an anime isn't even needed to promote it.

Feb 11, 2013 1:17 PM by desolato

Very nice but...
13, *31,270 *,*67,382 Dengeki Daisy, Vol.13
