News – Viz Media Licenses Bloody Mary & Honey So Sweet

After licensing QQ Sweeper and Idol Dreams earlier this month, Shojo Beat’s Twitter announced it has acquired Bloody Mary, a vampire shounen-ai series by SAMAMIYA Akaza, and Honey So Sweet (Honey), a love story between a shy girl and deliquent by MEGURO Amu. You can read more about them on Shojo Beat’s Tumblr.

I’m sure I’ll be picking up the latter. Vampires…meh.

Viz Media also has been picking up some of Tokyopop’s old releases for a digital release (Someday’s Dreamers: Spellbound, Girls Bravo). Let’s hope more of Tokyopop’s titles are rescued and released in print!

I’ll be posting today’s manga review shortly.
