First, new licenses for 2017:

Seven Seas is also teaming up with FUJIMARU Mamenosuke of the Alice in the Country of series to make a manga version of The Wizard of Oz series. The shoujo series will be titled Captive Hearts of Oz and be written by MARUYU Ryo.

They are also starting to release their titles as NOOK e-books.

So, are you interested in any of these titles?

News – Kodansha Comics Weekend Wrap-Up

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!
