Welcome to Shibuya-Cho

Once again it's kind of a slow week, a new Fumi Yoshinaga book (for like, what, 15 series now?), XXX Holic v. 9, and a few other new things. So lets take a look at something I have neglected to rave about for the last couple months, and that's the return of "GunSmith Cats". Kenichi Sonoda's awesome action series (which I think can be called a classic now) has begun anew with "GunSmith Cats: Burst". The first two volumes have already been released, and they're looking good.

Also, in honor of the new series, Dark Horse has reissued the once out of print original series in a couple of nice fat omnibuses, the first of which is over 460 pages thick and covers the first 16 chapters.

So, for those of you who haven't heard of them, or just never picked up the series, here's the run down. Basically it's two teenage girls named Rally and Minnie-May who run a weapons shop in Chicago. I know, I know, but bear with me a minute, of course a manga based in America is gonna sound a little bit off. Ok, so as if that's not enough for a couple of teenagers to deal with, they also run a side business as bounty hunters. Then crap hits the fan and wackiness ensues. Trust me, it's a blast. Besides, who can turn down the new sexy revised edition omnibuses? Oh, but I gotta say this one is an 18+ series for action, violence, and some sexual situations, so kiddies beware. Other than that, enjoy!

Ja Ne!
