A variety of genres huh? I'm hoping some of them will be memorable.

This is a serious departure from the theme and tone of Gunslinger Girl!

GG was (and is) still one of my top 5 manga and I think Aida will have to pull out something spectacular to top it but I'm still going to look forward to 1518 as I enjoy his artstyle as well as his story telling and it'll be interesting to see how he makes his Highschool manga original and different from the legions of such series out there already.

As for the other series being announced only two catch my interest, Eroge no Taiyō for it's artstyle (it reminds me of a more typically shonen bakuman style) and Kedamame simply because of how cryptic the article is and the promo pic looks really unnerving. Very Happy

New book by Aida, I'm trying to finish GSG now. But good to see that he's still putting stuff out.

I love the gg manga but I still need to finish that tbh... but regardless what I've read so far is amazing, although I'm a little wary of this new one because the subject matter of a high school student council may be too much for me. It just sounds too original.

...and do we know anything about what 1518! is about? I'm guessing no, other than that the one lady is wearing a baseball glove.

Also, regarding said "serious business drama"; it sure doesn't look like it. Although if it really is, I guess the juxtaposition between the art style/harem premise and the story content might be interesting.

Congratulations for him, GG is one of my favorite series and his art is also one of my fave. It would be a waste to see it go waste.

On a side note, where the hell is GG S3?

The company's new offerings seem interesting. The art for Kedamame is stunning beautiful, but the picture doesn't convey it being linked to the description of the story.



Eroge no Taiyō seems more of the same old Harlem setup of a story, even if it billing itself as serious business drama. Yeah right.

Well, hopefully the starts will help propel the company to become successful.

One has to wonder how serious they are about the "serious business drama" statement, or if that was sarcasm. I would bet it is more of a "serious business comedy", but time will tell.

These all sound interesting to some extent. I am curious to see Aida's new work. We got the least info on it... Being about a student council is kind of ... open ended.
