Beautiful. Definitely picking up Yakusoku no Neverland volume 1 in the future.

@PiRhoManiac Added. Cheers!

Tsuredure Children volume 6 also on December 19 (digital release). Feels like they're pumping these ones out pretty quickly, not that I'm complaining.

@GoldenDevilGamer Lol I'm glad someone is awake to notice the error. Fixed.

@bubble Added.

You missed one:
Tokyo Ghoul: re on December 19

Dec 4, 11:15 PM by bubble

OH an English version of 3 Gatsu no Lion - I was about to get excited & wanted to preorder - but then I saw this →
'Due to licensing and contract restrictions, this product can be sold and shipped to the US, Canada, South America and Central America only. This product cannot be shipped to Japan.'

Oh well. Too bad.

I'm like 4 volumes behind for Assassination Classroom. Might get the rest of the volumes once the final volume comes out in April.

I'm still on the fence on whether I wanna get Yakusoku no Neverland or not. It's really good, but whether the series can reach the highs it reached in the first arc will decide whether this series is worth collecting or not.

It's actually supposed to be Vol.18

AHAHAHAHAH, what? To Love Ru series only getting their American release now? When noone cares about it all that much? After the manga has ended? Nice one guys. I see nothing wrong with that if you dont :)
Actually no. Sentai's been releasing To Love Ru Blu-rays in North America since 2014.

But if you're talking about the manga, then yeah, it's being brought here for the first time.

Dec 4, 8:55 PM by GoldenDevilGamer

Yessss!!! I pre-ordered the first three volumes of Yakusoku no Neverland on Amazon for less than 8 bucks and the first volume is expected at my door on Thursday. Much excite. Later volumes will be released in the following year in February and April I think but super stoked nonetheless to have the physical copy.

I gotta pick up the Promised Neverland as it seems like something I'll enjoy after reading the first few chapters before.

Dec 4, 7:29 PM by AntwanMantilla

Youjo Senki hype! I'm hoping the LN provides a much more fleshed out story than what we saw in the anime.

Dec 4, 3:06 PM by Drachen

If the To love-ru collection included all the Ova, i would've bought it

Dec 4, 3:03 PM by Tencent__Weeb
