Cross Game 1 by Mitsuru Adachi: A-

When the first volume of Cross Game arrived at my house, I’m pretty sure my exact words were, “Eee!” Happily, I liked it every bit as I thought I would.

You can find my review for Comics Should Be Good here.

Cross Game is published in English by VIZ, who is bundling the seventeen-volume series into eight chunky tomes. This one is comprised of the first three volumes and the others will contain two each.

  1. aww yiss, 3 volumes.

    Do you have any idea what the release schedule is going to be like?

    • Volume 2 (containing the Japanese 4-5) is coming out on January 11, 2011 and volume 3 (containing 6-7) is coming out on April 12. I think most Shonen Sunday books are on a trimonthly schedule, so assuming it sells decently enough it should stick to this.
