Kodansha Comics USA had some big news this weekend!
- Their simulpubs are now available for purchase from ComiXology and Amazon.
- Princess Jellyfish ended the shoujo/josei drought bestseller drought! Number three on the New York Times’ Manga Best Sellers list!
- The next Vinland Saga omnibus will be published. I guess sales of volume seven were good. Let’s hope the series doesn’t go into permanent hiatus in English!
- Akira will be getting a box set, and it will be published in unflopped format. All six volumes plus the art book in hardcover for MSRP $199.99.
So, did any of these announcements pique your interest? I am definitely keeping an eye on Akira. It may seem expensive, but that breaks down to $28.50 an item, which is in line with the current paperback versions ($24.99 to $29.99). Of course, I don’t plan on spending $200 on it. Deal shopping FTW!
