Aoharu X Machinegun, Aoharu X Kikanjuu in Japanese, is based on the manga by the same name. It is written and illustrated by NAOE. The manga first came out in early 2013 and is still ongoing. Since it is not finished and the anime didn’t finish the story I’m most likely going to add it to This Week in Manga, because I want to know what happened. The anime is 12 episodes long and literally as I was writing this article an special came out. Even though it didn’t come out with the original run, I am adding to this review. Because you bet I watched it on the 10th.
Sugar Dark is written by Enji Arai and illustrated by Mabae. It was first published in 2009, in Japan. It was the first novel in six years that managed to win the grand prize in the Sneaker Bunko LN Competition. The light novel has yet to be officially released in the United States. There also has yet to be an official English translation. There have been a few translation groups that have take on this project and it is relatively easy to get a Japanese copy.
Vampire Knight is written by Matsuri Hino. It was First published in 2005 and ran till 2013. There is a two season anime by the same name, based on the series. There are also two light novel that fallow side stories from the characters in the Vampire Knight universe. There are also to drama CDs , a dating simulator and a live action musical stage play for the series.
Since is was the holidays there really wasn’t any updates. So there wasn’t any new manga for me to write about. As sad as I was about not getting a new chapter of every thing I’m reading, I completely understand the mangakas taking a brake. I mean I did.
So, next I will be back next week. I’ll be adding Magi to the line up.
Do you have any manga you want me to read? Let me know in the comments down below.

Cardcaptor Sakura: The Movie, comes from the anime series by the same name, except the movie part. That series is based on the manga, again by the same name, written and illustrated by Clamp. If you don’t know who Clamp is, please stop reading this article and Google them, if that doesn’t ring a few bells. Then read or watch at least one of there works, trust me there is a whole library to choose from. Cliff note about them, they are an all female mangaka group that have been producing original manga since 1989. Cardcaptor Sakura is just one one their many many works, that came out in 1996. The anime came out in 1998 and the movie came out in 1999.
