This week, let's look at the offerings on Comics Plus, our dedicated database for reading comics and manga! (Don't know how to use Comics Plus? Watch this tutorial, and get reading tons of free comics!)
The title we're focusing on this week is Cagastar, a post-apocalyptic action-adventure series that you can also watch on Netflix!
I also recommend watching the short documentary Piccolo is Black, directed by a student at FSU. (The documentary starts at 01:34:08, in case the time stamp gets messed up.)
This week the focus is on The Promised Neverland! We have the manga available on Sora. It's super popular, so you might have to place a hold on the volume you want, but it's definitely worth the wait!
Below is also this week's animation tutorial!
Finally, please don't miss this opportunity to win some cash for your awesome artwork while also speaking out against hate crimes.
I'm back again with more recommendations this week!
My manga recommendation is Spy x Family by Tetsuya Endo, available to read on Sora or on Shonen Jump!
Not one to depend on others, Twilight has his work cut out for him procuring both a wife and a child for his mission to infiltrate an elite private school. What he doesn’t know is that the wife he’s chosen is an assassin and the child he’s adopted is a telepath!
Next up, the anime I recommend this week is Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki from Funimation, available HERE. And here's the trailer:
And of course, it's time for another tutorial! This one's all about faces.

Hello! First of all, welcome to our first Animation & Illustration Club To-Go!
We're going to start off with my (Mrs. Hawkins's) recommendations for manga and anime.
First off, if you don't know how to use Sora yet, everything you need can be found HERE.
My manga recommendation is the romantic comedy The Engagement of Marielle Clarac, a super fun series just added to our collection this week.
As a plain, unassuming noble’s daughter, Marielle doesn’t stand out in high society. Imagine her surprise when she receives a marriage proposal from the sought-after Simeon, second-in-command of the Royal Order of Knights! Simeon, the heir to an earldom, is highly accomplished in scholarly and military arts—and he’s gorgeous. So why did he propose to such an unremarkable noblewoman? Despite being a target of envy and scorn, Marielle is happy. After all, Simeon seems to be exactly her type: a dashingly handsome man with glasses who appears gentle on the outside, but who has a dark and scheming side! Welcome to Marielle’s world, where people aren’t always what they seem—and a prim, proper exterior can hide the heart of a sly and devious fangirl!
Then of course there's my recommendation for anime this week, the modern romantic comedy Horimiya! Here's a trailer for this wonderful series that I've been thoroughly enjoying all season!
Looking for something to expand your drawing repertoire? Here's an awesome tutorial on how to draw hair- something that the mangaka and animators of the two highlighted series this week are really good at!
That's all for this week. Don't forget to share your art on Discord or social media using the hashtag #TildenAnime!
