September 2016 Manga Releases

Another month, which means another round of manga released!


September’s finally here, which means it’s time to head back to school. Thankfully, manga and light novels can easily fit in your bag as you commute to and from school (or sneak a read between classes; I won’t tell). While many students will be debuting at new schools, a number of new titles are debuting here in North America! (It’s not a perfect analogy, but just roll with it.) So, which series are in the freshman class and which ones have gone on to graduate? Check out our list of September 2016 manga releases (plus light novels and books) to find out! This month’s release dates are the 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th of September. 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!

September 2016 Manga Release - Non Non Biyori Vol 5

If laid-back slice-of-life is your thing, this manga series is a must-read. Non Non Biyori balances cute, funny, and even touching moments quite well. With the countryside as its backdrop, the series offers a more unique setting than most Tokyo-based stories (or even suburb-based ones). Try checking the series out; it’s a great way to maintain that relaxed, lazy-summer-feeling as autumn approaches. ~ Cindy

September 2016 Manga Releases Cover of Citrus.

Dark Horse

September 2016 Manga Release - RG Veda Omnibus Vol 1

Technically speaking, this isn’t really a series debut. An older work by CLAMP that began in 1989, Tokyopop first released the series in English on North American shores. This is, however, the debut of Dark Horse’s lovely omnibus editions. While many of CLAMP’s works have elements of fantasy, this one goes up to the heavens, dealing with the child of one god and a journey to take down another. Definitely a great read for people who like mythology stories, though CLAMP’s works are always worth recommending to just about anyone. ~ Cindy

September 2016 Manga Release - BLAME Master Edition Vol 1

I stumbled upon Tsutomu Nihei’s BLAME! many years ago (man, it’s been that long). Being relatively new to non-mainstream Japanese manga and to the cyberpunk genre at the time, I was awestruck by his storytelling method. Though I did not continue reading past the first few chapters (I was younger and not able to appreciate his work), his art style was engraved in my memory. At long last, I can give myself another chance to read this manga. You should, too! – detrop

Viz Media

September 2016 Manga Release - Master Keaton Vol 8

We released an article a while back that took a look at Naoki Urasawa’s life as both a mangaka and a musician. As Urasawa fans, it’s no surprise that we’d recommend checking out just about anything he puts out; he’s practically a national treasure in the manga world. Although he isn’t credited with writing the story from Volumes 1 to 5, he does receive writing credit starting at Volume 6. This makes the series particularly interesting as you try to look for his signature story-crafting touch. ~ Cindy
