Releases of the Week: FLCL and Squid Girl



Happy Tuesday, readers! It’s another week of light releases, but I do have one recommendation for you: FLCL the manga.

While the anime was so profoundly visual and exclusive to the format of animation, the manga captures a different set of sensibilities about teenage life that warrants a read. I picked up these volumes a while back at a garage sale, and idly read them on a rainy day. They didn’t prove to be my absolute favorite volumes, but I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of them. I’ll crack them open on other rainy days, like today, and see if the story has any new meaning for me.

After the jump we do have some other worthwhile releases: notably Saturn Apartments and Squid Girl. So take a moment, look them over, and buy something.
