@keith Unfortunately there have been some delays in the color editions, which is affecting our schedule in the US. HOTD is likely to push out again a little further, but we hope you will be patiently waiting its publication, as it is sure to be as awesome a volume as the first one!
@ Abby: As long as the HOTD release is the same high quality as the first color edition, ya’ll can take your time getting it right. I’ll patiently wait to buy it. Do you know if there are any plans to make a color edition of Triage X?
@Richard No plans to colorize Triage that we’ve heard, but the second HOTD color omnibus will include Shouji Sato’s art book, which does have a number of color images from Triage as well as HOTD and his earlier works~
Is there a chance for the Another Omnibus to be a hard cover?
Since all 4 volumes will be included it would have it’s practical use (a hard cover would avoid bending the spine by such a large book) and it would also be more aesthetic and of course more durable, since hard covers have a very high quality and don’t get signs of usage.
I’m sure that people will buy it, even if it costs a bit more as a hard cover, well, since its the great anticipated Another Manga! Can’t wait! And since Thermae Romae got a hard cover (and I’m sure that many people haven’t heard of the series before your release of it) it would be more than fair if Another also got one, since Another has it’s fan base for a long time. Just look at it’s populariry and nevertheless, everyone mentions it here XD
These’s are all awesome and I am looking forward to buy some of these but I Really Wish some company will one day publish K?RNEVAL ; v ; That would be amazing.. just saying. *Cough* You should all read it*Cough*
K?RNEVAL by: Touya Mikanagi *cough* if anyone is interested in reading it.
Yay for Pandora Hearts 18 (my favorite manga, I’ll forever love you for those) and Oriko Magica!
Btw, any chance you’ll be licensing The Different Story? It is, in my opinion, the best of the PMMMM spin-offs and I’d love to own it^^
Yeah it would be awesome to own The Different Story and also is there any chance that one day you guys will license Mirai Nikki , Toaru Majutsu no Index and maybe series like Blast of Tempest and Akame ga Kill ? I would love to own them all
@Sara We only just started serializing the eighth volume of Jack Frost in the March issue of Yen Plus, so probably not for a little while yet. Once we’ve confirmed our publication date, we’ll be sure to update the site.
So glad you’re liking Jack Frost!
Inu x Boku & Watamote, simply awesome!, i hope u to realease Another hardcover, i really want to buy it, i prefer the real thing over digital books and also prefer novels over manga but only a few licenced. Anyway, ty for Inu and Watamote!
Ahhh! Why does all the good stuff come out in October!… Yen press takes forever to release volumes…. I’m going to start reading online if it takes this long to release… Wish they were like Viz media, cheap books and fast releases.
Another. It is double the size of Higurashi’s Demon Exposing Arc (400 pages) and that specific book gets harder to read the closer to the centre you are. Could we please have some details on the quality it will recieve? Hardback? Upscaling to A4? Or will the opposite be the case, degrading of paper quality to squeeze it all in (horrible pocket dictionary quality paper). I very much want to buy it but I’d rather not damage the book. I’d happily pay for a hardback of it.
I have a very silly question. I’ve learned that there going to be a new Oriko Magica book coming out in Japan in a few weeks. I know licensing and translation can take a lot of time, but is there any interest in picking it up? Thanks.
Omg inu x boku on my birth month???!! Awesome! Also, since I’ve seen that you publish light novels yoy should TOTALLY publish the oreimo light novels, especially since the series is growing in popularity
Beautiful Higurashi cover
I hope you will use Mion&Shion cover (it’s orginal 6th cover) for 3th volume of Festival Arc and 8th cover (that one with everyone) for the last volume of Festival Arc.
And do you have any news about any side story Higurashi Arcs? Are you going to release them?
Last question about Another. Colour pages. Considering it is four volumes in one, will the colour pages be in the appropriate places or will it be like the When They Cry collected volumes where you only keep the first few colour pages and go black and white for the rest of them in the volume, noticed afew pages in Massacre arc that are black and white though they have the same ammount of detail to suggest they used to be colour pages.
@Another somebody – For the Another manga omnibus, all color pages that were in the Japanese collected volumes will remain intact in the Yen omnibus. And just to clarify, our editions always have the same color pages as the Japanese collected volumes (though sometimes we include more!). When you see pages that look like they were color but are printed in b/w in our books, like in your Higurashi example, this is because the Japanese collected editions also printed them in b/w (this happens a lot with serialized series, where the mangaka make color pages for the magazine chapters as they’re being serialized but when the chapters are collected they are often but not always printed b/w). Hope that helps!
@tania – I’m sorry, you’re right
There was an older emblem until volume 5, and this one was from volume 6 onwards, but I’ve failed to notice until now that online the newer reprints of the first 5 Japanese volumes appear with their emblem also updated to the newer one..
I picked up the first volumes of WataMote and Inu x Boku SS and both were wonderful! Looks like you’ve got me hooked for 2 more series, Yen Press! And put my vote in for Kimi to Boku for your next batch of licenses!
