The Spring 2017 Manga Guide

by The Anime News Network Editorial Team,


Welcome to Anime News Network's first-ever Spring Manga Guide! You may have seen one of our seasonal Anime Preview Guides, where a team of critics writes up each new anime television premiere as it airs at the beginning of a season. Now, doing something like that for manga is tricky - there's no equivalent "seasonal" release schedule for new manga series, so here's what we came up with: a survey across three months' worth of manga releases (in the case of this guide, April, May and June 2017) with a focus on premiering series.

This is an ongoing guide. Every day for the next week we'll be updating the guide twice a day with new titles, in general release order (meaning we'll begin the guide with April books and conclude with June books). We also have a survey of the notable light novel releases from those months, publishing on Friday.

This guide focuses exclusively on series premieres; we thought that would be the most useful thing to do. Please remember these are reviews of Volume One only - we're not reviewing the whole thing, or the digital chapters beyond volume one. If you've read ahead, please try not to spoil things for people in the forums. All reviews use the same ratings scale: 1-5, with 1 being the lowest.

Check back every day this week for new reviews, and share your feedback in the forums!
