January new titles


Rooster Fighter is a strange, fun manga with the old trope of the "lone fighter vs giant demon creatures" but instead of a person, it's a rooster....like an actual chicken.  Rooster is always on the go, looking to find the demon who killed his sister, and using his super-sonic cock-a-doodle-doo to eliminate the horrible creatures destroying Tokyo (and other parts of Japan).  

This is rated for Older Teens, and is maybe not everyone's cup of tea but if you are looking for something different....it is definitely worth a try.

I seem to have found a lot of "different" manga this month.  Cat + Gamer is about a young lady who has no life ....just work and gaming; until she adopts a kitten.  She doesn't really know anything about being a cat mom, so she thinks of it in terms of a role playing game and does the best she can.....however, real cats (and kittens) are not like games and sometimes it is nice to move outside your comfort zone and try new things.

This is a quiet read, not flashy but very sweet.

Creepy Cat is a compilation from a popular webcomic and is adorable and strange.  Flora moves into an old mansion and finds a weird cat that she instantly bonds with.  Creepy cat can sometimes be many, or just one....can change size and definitely is good at finding trouble.

Because this is a reprinting of a serial style comic, it isn't strong with an overarching plot, but the stories build a fun and strange story that will be enjoyed by anyone who likes Wednesday Addams and those quirky kinds of stories.
