My Little Monster Volume 13 by Robico
Kodansha Comics – MSRP: $10.99

Nichijou Volume 1 by Keiichi Arawi
Vertical Comics – MSRP: $10.95

Set in a strange school where you may see the principal wrestle a deer or a robot’s arm hide a rollcake, the days that transpire through the course of Nichijou are curious and hilarious, if not downright bizzare. However, amidst all the chaos and comedy Arawi still takes time to share everyday slice of life stories giving readers an insight to modern Japanese youth culture.

UQ Holder Volume 7 by Ken Akamatsu
Kodansha Comics – MSRP: $10.99

The murder has been solved and Santa becomes the newest addition to UQ Holder. Soon after, Tōta encounters a woman who claims to be a friend of his grandfather’s.

There’s going to be a gala concert to celebrate the winners, and even though Kaori and Kosei didn’t advance, they’re invited to perform. Confident they can leave a lasting impression, Kaori seizes the chance to order Kosei back onto the stage with her. The ultimate duo that moved an entire audience’s hearts will perform once more, and people are buzzing with anticipation. Yet Kosei seems listless and uninterested in the festivities.
