Next week in Japan, we’re having long break called “Golden Week”
! I’m sure a lot of Manga lovers have encountered the term in manga once or two. But what exactly is Golden Week? It is probably the longest holiday period for most Japanese workers, longer than Obon holidays in August or even the New Year holidays. In July 1948, Japan declared nine official holidays, and many of them concentrated in the last week of April and the first week of May. Indeed, many leisure and entertainment industries are making huge profits from the period. Thus the “Golden” name is being attached to this week! Now, the holidays celebrated in the Golden Week consist of these days:Showa Day (April 29)Constitution Memorial Day (May 3)Greenery Holiday (May 4)Children’s Day (May 5)
If weekend falls in the transition from April to May and after May 5, then it can even last until nine days! Therefore, To celebrate the week, Manga.club decided to have a consecutive new serializations start from May 1 to May 7!May 1: A.D.A by N.G

adorkable!May 3: Gourmet Glutton! by Shigeru Tsuchiyama
Genre: Cooking, Action, Drama, Seinen, Friendship, Comedy
At first, Mantaro Ohara was just an ordinary salaryman with slightly bigger appetite. For Mantaro, eating is something to be enjoyed, and the idea of food battle does not sound attractive to him. But his meeting in Pork Cutlet store with the professional competitive eater, George Hunter, gradually changed his view and passion towards gourmet competition... And they probably would not let this unexpected "dark horse" escape either.Staff's Comment
: I had a hard time reading recipes in the cooking manga, so I'm not excited at first, BUT Gourment Glutton is more about eating competition and I love that! And I keep demanding for more because not only I can feel second-satisfaction by seeing the character's huge appetite, but the rivalry between the competitor is just wonderfully depicted. The characters are all adults, but their fierce ambition is as hot as youngsters. Especially Mantaro, the main character... is probably one of the best protagonists in seinen manga I've ever seen. His dramatic character development is very vital to the manga!

Staff's comment
:This one is really interesting! I'm sure there have been a lot of similar themes before, but the relationship between the two main characters are adding heavy spices which taste I can't forget! Anyone craving for Shounen with the high dose of romance needs to read this!May 5: Shizumu, the Imaginary Girl by Fruits Suzuki

Shizumu-chan is a very delicate girl. Literally. She doesn't fit into the crowd. Not without reason. She also resembles you in a way. That might surprise you....Staff's comment
: This one might look like your usual cute manga, but Shizumu-chan is more "weird" in a positive way. It's like you are laughing, but underneath you notice that there's a deeper meaning than just jokes here.May 6: Fermata Life by Emi Fukasaku

: Days Days
Genre: Comedy, Romance, School Life, Friendship
Rating: All Ages
Due to excessive excitement when introducing herself in the new school, Masumi Mame ended up being called Daizu instead. Now she was known as the "soybean" girl; it seems like more weird and quirky schoolfellows are interested in getting along with her. "Days Days" is a 4-panel comic of the comedic high school days that is both entertaining and of course, very extra
:I expect the main character to be the center of the comedy, well she is, but so does the rest of the characters.
Days Days is an ensemble of weirdest high schooler casts that involves awkward romance and friendship dramas!
