At the easternmost reaches of her new home lies a forest where it's said witches roam.

This is one of the newer series being released by the author of Fruits Basket, so of course I’m jumping on. It’s pricier than some others, but I’m still hoping to love it. I’m excited to see some of her new and old works being brought to print after so long, and in such nice editions, too.
Sweetness and Lightning by Gido Amagakure out on July 26—This series is already being released on Crunchyroll, and I’ve read a few chapters there. While I didn’t love it immediately on there, I’m still hoping I’ll start liking it more, and I’m glad they’re releasing it in print. I hope they do that for more series on there.
