Aww, it's only the manga version for Mushoku Tensei? I was hoping they add the LN since I'm kinda interested in checking that out.

Huh, I found it pretty interesting that Riddle Story of Devil got picked up since it was already available on Kadokawa's digital Global Bookwalker platform, so I guess they already were in negotiations for the title before that happened?

Meh. I liked Golden Time, but I'm not sure if the manga version will differ enough to make it worth checking out. Merman in my Bathtub's most interesting feature was its hyper dramatic OP which was completely out of place for its mild antics.
But the story about the NEET reborn into a magical world sounds interesting...

Nothing that I'll definitely be buying.

I'm interested in Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, but I seem to have a problem with manga adaptions of ongoing LNs. Guess I just don't want to invest in an adaption that may not cover the whole story. It's also an aspect I dislike about anime, but there I'm not paying to watch one individual series...

I enjoyed the Golden Time anime, for the most part, but felt like it got a weak in the last 4 or so episodes. Bunri would get on my nerves from time to time, but the way things went towards the end...it just didn't feel like it handled things well, seemed rushed to me.

The manga interests me, but the thing stopping me from getting that one is the fear that it also won't handle the end to the series well.

Both series are ones I'll probably just keep an eye on until they come close to their conclusions. I just feel uneasy when I think about throwing money at Seven Seas for those 2. Laughing

I've no interest in the other 2 series they've picked up, but it's nice to see fans of those 2 series getting their chance to collect the manga.

The anime of Riddle Story was entertaining so I'll probably check the manga out. Don't have any interest in the other titles though

If only someone would license the Golden Time and Toradora! light novels instead of the manga versions... Not that I won't be buying it, mind you!

Merman in my Tub is a big surprise and I will definitely think about picking it up if one of the series I'm currently collecting ends.

@ kevinx59:

Personally, I think the manga is a vast improvement over the anime so I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Third rate manga version of a second rate romcom like Golden Time? Whee.

No novel; no sale.

It also feels bit gayer in the manga than the anime which is surprising since the Nanoha director did the anime, and he could have used the opportunity to release the carnal desires in the yuri department.
