Usamaru Furuya is on fire this year, his 1 completed volume of Litchi Hikari Club will be released April 29, 2011.
That's a pretty twisted series. I'll be buying that. Vertical: officially my favorite publisher.
Awesome news, I cannot say I saw that coming.
I hope this turns in to a trend, we really need more Usamaru over here.
I think so. 51 Ways to Save Her would have come out in September if CMX was not closed. With all of the publishers that specialize in alternative manga/gekiga now, and how successful most are at selling them, expect more interesting titles to choose from.
Highschool of the Dead
Betrayal Knows My Name
Otoyomegatari (by the mangaka of Emma)
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Demon Exposing Arc
Yen Press+ will relaunch as an online magazine. Beta will be up Friday, the magazine will be free for the first month but require $2.99 subscription fee thereafter.
Expect Jump news this weekend. I believe VIZ will be having a Shonen Jump panel tomorrow at SDCC.
Drawn and Quarterly:
Onwards Toward Our Noble Deaths
Nonnonba to Ore (both by the mangaka of Gegege no Kitarou)
Sakura no Ichiban (by the mangaka of Karin)
Pavane for a Dead Girl
Mr. Clean: Fully Equipped
Death Note Black Edition (omnibus)
Nurarihyon no Mago. To be released as Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan.

Nice Nurarihyon is being licensed. I knew it would be coming soon, what with the simulcast of the anime, but I'm glad it's actually true. I'll actually buy that one.
Nura getting licensed, no surprise there I really look forward to their translation of it.
Vertical has licensed Velveteen & Mandara by Jiro Matsumoto (Freesia). The single volume series will ship in August of 2011.
Kodansha has announced that they will gradually take over manga publishing rights from Del Ray in the US and Canada, as I had suspected they would. Kodansha USA will be distributed by Random House, Del Ray's parent company. No announcement on forth coming titles have been made. Anime News Network

Bloody Monday, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, the last three volumes of Rave (omnibus), and new translations of the first three volumes of Negima (also omnibus), Dobutsu no Kuni, Gon, will be coming out in August. Seems that almost everything Del Ray was releasing is switching to Kodansha. Negima, Air Gear, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, etc will all resume in August too.

Can't wait for Animal Land and Gon. More SZS is gonna be nice too.
Whoo!! Cage of Eden and Bloody Monday!! I know where my Christmas money will be going
My only complaint is no new editions of Blame! and Noise. Otherwise: good job Kodansha!
