Releases of the Week: Bring on the good times with more Baccano


The ruckus will never end

Things are starting to pick up, as the releases go into full overdrive. Perhaps the greatest thing about this occasion is that we received a new volume of the original Baccano! light novel. Even though I only caught the anime, I loved its take on the United States during the '30s, along with its immortality and gangster elements. Also, Ryohgo Narita did a fantastic job in connecting the various story points covered in it as we jumped across different periods in time.

While we may never see a new anime season, the source material is the next best thing. To this day, I'm impressed with the author connecting the series with his other works. Seeing that it's in the same universe as Durarara!!, Vamp!, and Etsusa Bridge, I'm amazed at his ability to manage multiple tales.

As we wait for Gundam NT to come out, another issue of Gundam Thunderbolt launched. It may not feature the lovely jazz music from the anime adaptation, but it won't stop it from being a solid story in the Universal Century timeline.

Speaking of space operas, the seventh Legend of the Galactic Heroes book is ready to get you immersed in more of its conflicts and characters. I heard from Japanator Editor-in-Chief Josh Tolentino that the anime adaptation was phenomenal, and he made me want to have it in my list of things to check out.

Compare to the previous batch, there's a ton of things that can catch people's eye. The anime side may be small, but there's a good variety in the manga and light novel-related content. Last but not least, you can't go wrong with more Konosuba!
