NYCC 2015 News Part 1

Hey Everyone. Xan here coming to you Live From NYCC 2015 at the Jacobs Javitz Center. So far this year's convention has been really cool with lots of Cool Booths and events going on. While there will be a legitimate podcast later this week. To Hold you over, here is come cool news and some fun photos from the con so far.

From First Second Publishing, there is a few new titles coming out that will be debuting soon. The one that I recommend the most would be "The Fall of the House of West". It looks like a fun read and I have learned to always appreciate anything First Second releases. 
From Vertical Inc., the big thing there were pushing was the new series "Tokyo Esp." (which sadly is already sold out. But The one which I say everyone needs to get is Chii's Sweet Home Vol 12 (The Final Vol) See if Chii/Sarah stays with his mom or stays with the Yamadas. 
Kodansha is pushing Attack on Titan and Sailor Moon as usual but one series they have at the con which we should be looking forward to is "Inuyashiki" which is essentially robot grandpa as if it was written by the creator of Gantz.
as for other publishers. I will keep you posted. I am off to the Vertical Inc Panel and then off to check out some cool marvel news 
Happy Anniversary

It's been a long 7 years since Xan and May-San started the Spiraken Manga Review, a podcast where two friends talked about various manga. It has evolved  so much since those days: From the creation of Skully the Wheel of Manga, Deke joining in to create the Spiraken Movie Review and our presence at so many conventions, where we host panels such as "The Insane Manga Challenge", so much has happened in seven years. 

Here is to seven more years Spiraken
Thank you for sticking with us and for continuing to support Xan's work. Stay tuned for more great podcasts and creations.
