    I'd been contemplating starting this thread myself, but I appreciate it being done for me. Anyway, while I'd looked at the "preorder" pages on Right Stuf and wondered just how much manga I'd get this month (as opposed to some fairly heavy purchases last month), I did seem to wind up with a fair haul:

    One-Punch Man 14
    Tokyo Tarareba Girls 1
    A Certain Scientific Railgun 13
    Akame ga Kill 15
    Harukana Receive 1
    Go For It, Nakamura!
    eclair
    Skip Beat 37, 38, 39
    NTR: Netsuzou Trap 5
    Made in Abyss 3

      July 2018
      A Certain Scientific Railgun 13
      Abandoned Sacred Beasts 6
      Battle Angel Alita Deluxe 4
      Battle Angel Alita Mars Chronicle 2,3
      Btooom 21
      Case Closed 67
      Children of the Whales 5
      Dead Dead Demon's Dededede Destruction 2
      Dimension W 8-10
      Flying Witch 6
      Rin-Ne 27
      Vinland Saga 10

      15 volumes for the month.

      I also managed to get caught up on a lot of reading that I'd fallen behind on over the past few years. That project continues as I work my way through Nisekoi: False Love. Catching up is going to take a while, but I have more time now that I've retired.

          I think that is Batman manga by Kuwata Jiro, which were carried in the Shonen King and Shonen Gaho magazines in the 1960s.
          Kuwata Jiro was famous for his superhero manga such as Phantom Detective, Moonlight Mask and 8 Man. It is interesting that he also drew Batman.

            It looks like it is.

            So he did 8 Man too? I'll definitely check that out along with the sequel 8 Man After. Thanks for the info!

                It's a pleasure.
                The scriptwriter of the 8 Man manga was famous sci-fi writer Hirai Kazumasa.
                You seem to enjoy both American superhero stuff and Japanese superhero stuff. ^_^
                You may have watched the 8 Man anime as Tobor the 8th Man on TV in your childhood.

                  Yes, Fuji TV broadcast live-action TV series Batman in Japan in 1966-67, and the Shonen Gaho and Shonen King magazines carried Kuwata's Batman manga in 1966-67.

                  The Shogakukan edition of Kuwata's Batman manga seems to have tables about which chapter of Kuwata's Batman is based on which Batman comic book.

                  Kuwata Jiro also drew an Ultra Seven manga.
