    Interesting. Says they want to only publish manga with literary merits. Maybe they will find and license some really coll stuff. Kinda excited.

    Re: Licensing Announcements.

    Whenever I see a company that wants to license that style of manga, I smile. That's a lot of what I read ^_^

    Part of what I like is that it is a publisher that can concentrate on small publisher material. There are a lot of good titles available from Ohta Books, Comic Beam/Fellows, and old Manga Action titles. VIZ has Shogagukan/Shueisha to concentrate on, Del Ray only works with Kodansha. I see a lot of possibilities emerging.

    Re: Licensing Announcements.

    ANN reported on their plans last fall. The article says "Del Rey is still publishing Kodansha titles into next year." I may be reading to much into it but that sounds like this is the last year of the agreement. Considering they systematically ended their agreements with Tokyopop, Dark Horse, and various random publishers it seems like their attempting to consolidate everything under the Kodansha USA banner. Ghost in the Shell and Akira volume 1 were reissued last year; same crappy editions Dark Horse put out with a different label. I can't think of any other reason Del Ray will be releasing the last three volumes of Mushishi as an omnibus this summer.

    Re: Licensing Announcements.

    Hmm, indeed. The entire "omnibus" deal does make it seems suspicious.

    This isn't too good for Del Rey.

    Re: Licensing Announcements.

    Considering manga with one of the biggest growth areas in publishing it would make sense for Kodansha to create an equivalent of rather than continue licensing to a sci-fi subsidiary of a U.S. publisher.

    I've never really liked Del Ray. There translations are good but the series they license can be questionable, compared to VIZ and Yen Press print quality isn't all that good. Since VIZ Signature was overhauled the quality gap has been more apparent. Hopefully Kodansha releases will follow suit, should they fully take up licensing.

    Re: Licensing Announcements.

    New Del Rey titles:
    I Am Here! by Ema Toyama - 2010 October
    Arisa by Natsumi Ando - 2010 October.
    Rave Master (RAVE) by Hiro Mashima 33-34-35 (last three unpublished [former publisher: Tokyopop] volumes in one omnibus) - 2010 December

    Note: There still a chance to Kodansha and Del Rey extend their contact because Del Rey will start a new Kondansha title in October, however that means nothing. Unfortunately Kodansha still think that the inner market (Japan sales) is still enough. And they're right: the international sales not even close to the Japanese sales. That's why Kodansha not really interested in international market. Okay, Kodansha US exist, but that's just a little try, I think.

    Tokyopop:
    Lives by Masayuki Taguchi - 2010 November
    Summoner Girl by Hiroshi Kubota - 2010 November

    Re: Licensing Announcements.

    Shaman King: Kang Zeng Bang (Perfect Edition), will be released in Italy starting in November 2010 by Star Comics. They will be exactly like the Japanese releases.

    Additional info here: http://shamanking-nation.com/english...ased-in-italy/


    (And for those wondering if the translation/quality is any good, I can proudly say, they do an execellent job on all of their previous Shaman King/Butsu Zone work)

    Koibito Play Licence?

    I see that Koibito Play have been set as Licensed by some company here on MH. But I can't find out by who. Is there anyone who knows? Any admin that can see if it have been added on the series page or some random person who knows? Maybe I haven't looked around enough... Want to know as I scanlate it...

    If there can't be found out who it is, maybe it should be changed back.

    Re: Licensing Announcements.

    I'm not sure if this quote is what your referring to, if not correct me:
    Quote Quote:
    Submitted releases are disabled for this Manga in some languages due to licensing restrictions. MangaHelpers Administration are aware of this and are following up with the relevant license holders.
    Koibito Play is not licensed. That message appears for all series published by Kodansha. Due to last falls cease and desist order their manga can not be uploaded to MH.


    March Story by the Shin Angyo Onshi/Defense Devil duo is listed for sale in October 2010 by VIZ

    Nope! Only two volumes. Well it's quite expensive. The VIZBIG Vagabond has same cover price but it has a bunch of color pages and it's bigger than standard tankoubon size and contains THREE volumes. 13-14 USD would be the ideal price.

    Another sad news:
    Yen Plus has ended. I knew it. I didn't know when but I knew it will happen soon. However they'll continue it in a digital online format.

    Hungarian publisher "Fumax" will publish the first volume of Hetalia in May. It will also published in the US by Tokyopop in September. Yaay, we'll get earlier.

    @Kaiten: The March Story's writer is not the same with Defense Devil/SAO's writer just the illustrator is the same.

    it all a matter of mathematics, if it is three volumes then 576/3 = 191, which makes sense

    otherwise Viz would be putting very many blank pages in the copies of their issue of Cross Game
