Howdy y’all! I’m planning on doing a thing called Coming This Month wherein I talk about some highlights from the gaming and film and anime worlds for this month, and even some channel news, too!
Let’s get started!
So there’s quite a bit of a selection of manga releasing this month, but I wanted to share some that caught my eye!
Up first is Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai! To be quite honest, I’m not a big Dragon Quest fan, but I think the series as a whole is interesting enough, and I can certainly respect its popularity. I’m pretty sure I saw a Dragon Quest anime over on Crunchyroll a while back, too, so seeing a Dragon Quest manga reach the West is definitely a delight!
I don’t know if I’ll be picking this manga up… I think it depends on if it’s going to be one of those infinitely long series like Pokémon or Splatoon.
This one is definitely a surprise: Alice in Borderland! Based on the synopsis I found online, this definitely seems like a rather interesting take on the original Alice in Wonderland story, as it focuses on a teenager and his group of friends fighting for their survival.
I’m not entirely sure how gore-y this series will be, but it definitely has me intrigued enough to pick up the first volume!
So, we have an action-adventure manga based on a video game, a dark twist on a public domain story, and now we have… a cute slice of life? Yes! This manga is called Cat + Gamer and sounds to be super cute! The whole plot of this series centers around a young adult girl struggling to be sociable with her co-wokers when one day a stray cat decides to make its way into her life. She now must learn how to take care of this cat with only the knowledge she’s gained from video games.
I think this would be a wonderful slice-of-life comedy, and I will most certainly want to keep up with this series!
Indie Gaming Releases
I know as Gamers(TM), we all try to stay on top of all the gaming news out there, but i wanted to share a couple of indie games coming out this month that I think are worth Googling!
Up first, we have a creature collecting game called Coromon! This looks interesting, as it seems to be a cross between Pokémon and The Legend of Zelda. You collect and raise various monsters, but you also navigate an interconnected world and solve puzzles in various ways.
It’s got a release date of March 31st, so you’ll definitely have to wait a while to snag this!
You won’t have to wait nearly as long to buy ANNO: Mutationem, though, as it’s coming out on the 17th! This game is a gorgeous blend of pixel art with 3D environments. It looks like the levels (or… dungeons…?) of this game will be 2D side-scrollers but the hub world is a fully explorable 3D space.
This one is definitely one to look out for!
That’s All For Now!
I wanted to keep this one short, as I’m still trying to get myself into the groove of making articles again! I hope you all enjoyed reading, and I hope to see y’all back here for the next article!
