The saying goes ” In Junerain in the united sun bring blessed harvest“. Although the weather juggles between sun and rain, manga releases announce great harvests for fans.
Decidedly, this year 2022 promises to be important for the world of manga. On the one hand, big series are getting dangerously close to their end, like One Piece and My Hero Academiaon the other hand, the almost providential return of Hunter x Hunter was recently unveiled. Even the manga Berserk, which we thought could not be finished since the death of its author Kentaro Miura, will continue. What strong emotions for members of the otaku community.
Nevertheless, beyond the HITs that we all know, the world of manga tends to develop and publishers offer us more and more novelties. Moreover, there are not only novelties, certain series continue or appear under new formats as it was the case of Rokudenashi Bluesreissued by Pika Edition. Focus on the manga releases not to be missed in the second part of June!
Diamond in the rough T01 at Kana – Released June 17, 2022
Do you know what is lithotherapy ? It is a technique based on the use of the properties of stones and crystals. The goal is to act on the physical and psychological level by rebalancing the vital functions of the body. In Diamond in the rough, we are not talking about simple lithotherapy, we go much further. Indeed, based on the properties of gems and precious stones, we find ourselves in a world worthy of Harry Potter where certain chosen ones, called mineralogists, can use the stones as they see fit. Kai is a young boy from an underground village. He will one day meet a mineralogist who will simply change his life.
why we love Diamond in the rough? As said before, this novelty from Kana has one side Harry Potter which is not to displease. We find ourselves in a world where, what could be assimilated to magic, turns out to be the result of communication between human beings and stones. For the moment, the first volume allows us to discover not only the universe, but also the main characters, as well as the ins and outs of the series. Diamond in the rough is an initiatory journey that could well have some surprises in store for us.
Oneira – The nightmare child T01 at Kana – Released June 17, 2022
Have you ever had nightmares? Most definitely, yes. What if we told you that nightmares can become esoteric creatures capable of taking your life? Would you believe us? Probably not. Yet this is what happens in Oneira – The Nightmare Childthe new manga from Kana. Arane Heos is what is called an epeira, a warrior sent by the Order to exorcise nightmares and save, when possible, their victims, also called Vessels. During his travels, an aristocrat will ask him for assistance, changing the rest of his life. But don’t be fooled by appearances, Arane is only the harbinger of the true protagonist of the story, whom many seem to be looking for.
why we love Oneira – The nightmare child? Esotericism has been on the rise in recent years. The success of Jujutsu Kaisen must not be unknown there. Nevertheless, in Oneira – The Nightmare Childit is not simple demons that are watching you, but strange creatures called nightmares. Some, like the jellyfish, the incubus or the cherub, will be familiar to you. Others are creations of the duo CAB & DI MEO Federica. This novelty, Franco-Italian, offers us an interesting scenario, highlighting human feelings and their manipulation. DI MEO’s drawing departs from classic manga, but brings an impressive depth to the characters. Every detail only makes the story and its characters more real, and the story that lies ahead may well lead us into an adventure as dark as that of Berserk. Protect your secret above all, whatever the cost.
The Quintessential Quintuplets – Color Edition T02 at Pika Edition – Released June 22, 2022
It must be admitted that Pika Edition often has great ideas. The proof, the series The Quintessential Quintuplets is back with a full color version. A real success, the series has been adapted into an anime and an animated film has been announced some time ago. For those of you who don’t know HARUBA Negi’s series, shame on you. The story immerses us in the daily life of Fûtarô, a very intelligent but broke high school student. In order to meet his needs, but also those of his family, he manages to land a dream job: private tutor for a wealthy family. Except that, the young man will quickly become disillusioned. Because dream job hides a reality for which Fûtarô was not prepared: he will not have one, but five students and more precisely quintuplets. Each one having, of course, its little character. The Quintessential Quintuplets is a manga full of humor to read absolutely.
Spy x Family T08 at Kurokawa – Release June 23, 2022
We won’t insult you by introducing you Spy x Familywith the anime currently streaming on Crunchyroll. Initially scheduled for May, volume 8 will finally be released on June 23 with, on this occasion, a particularly awaited collector’s edition. In France, the first volume was released in September 2020 and the series quickly met with more than deserved success. At the same time, the recipe works particularly well. Spying, crazy characters, humor, human, how Spy x Family could have not worked? And if you’re too lazy to read manga (but we highly recommend them all the same), the anime, produced by the studio W.I.T. Studio, is considerably successful. Even the French version, despite a few adjustments that may distort Anya’s wacky side, is quite successful. In the last volume, Loid and Anya are preparing to go on a trip aboard an ocean liner, while Yor, who will take the same ship, will be on a mission. What’s going to happen ? Was Yor given the mission to kill Loid?
