May 2019 Manga / Light Novel / Book Releases

Another new month, another slew of manga releases! Tax season has come to a close in America, which means most of you should (hopefully) have received your tax refunds by now. Getting money back is a great feeling, but what should you do with this “new-found” cash? Maybe a little shopping spree?? Here are the May 2019 manga, light novels, books, and more.

This month's release dates are the 5th, 6th, 7th, 11th, 13th, 14th, 16th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 23rd, 24th, 28th, 30th, and the 31st. You can either click on one of the dates to be taken to that section, do a page search by publisher, or scroll ’til your heart’s content!
