Now thats what I call a manga volume, Hardcover and lengthy

Anonymous asked: No. 6 comes out every two months, right? I heard a rumor saying that the 8th volume is going to be delayed until September. Is that true?

Unfortunately, due to a printer error, the eighth volume of No. 6 has been delayed by one week, to Aug. 26. It should be available then, however, not in September.

Is this also happen to Heroic Legend of Arslan vol.2 that the release date was pushed 7 months from its original release date?

No, the “delay” on Arslan 2 was just a technical error. In fact, the book should be back to its correct November 2014 release date now.

Anonymous asked: I was feeling sad about Sanakarea ending early next year but then you announce Yamada-kun & the Seven Witches to fill the shounen rom-com shaped void in my heart. Thank you!!

It’s our pleasure! Thanks for supporting Sankarea, too!

Anonymous asked: I'm very aware josei has a hard time in America but, that hasn't stopped me from supporting all of Vertical's josei manga. One day, if you guys decide on licensing that 1 perfect josei manga, I highly recommend "Ginban Kishi", which is an ice skating manga by Yayoi Ogawa (author of "Tramps like us").

I can’t comment on license requests, but I would encourage you to try out Say I Love You, which skirts the border between shojo and josei.

(In fact, Say I Love You has been selling so well that we may be slightly revising our opinion on titles like it.)


Our 2014 San Diego Comic-Con announcements are Let’s Dance a Waltz by Natsumi Ando and Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches by Miki Yoshikawa!
YAMADA-KUN AND THE SEVEN WITCHES and LET’S DANCE A WALTZ SET FOR 2015 RELEASE FROM KODANSHA COMICS
New York, NY (July 26, 2014) – Manga publisher Kodansha Comics announced today at San Diego Comic-Con that it would add two new series to its 2015 slate: the hit shonen series Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches, and a moving tale of ballroom dance, Let’s Dance a Waltz.
Miki Yoshikawa’s Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches is one of the most popular series on Crunchyroll. Class troublemaker Ryu Yamada is already having a bad day when he stumbles down a staircase along with star student Urara Shiraishi. When he wakes up, he realizes they have switched bodies—and that Ryu has the power to trade places with anyone with only a kiss! Plus, it turns out he’s not the only kid at school with a few magic tricks up his sleeve… Yoshikawa used to be an assistant on Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail.
Natsumi Ando, author of the fan-favorite Kitchen Princess, returns with a charming tale of what it feels like when you just can’t fit in with Let’s Dance a Waltz. When Hime Makimura was young, her mother told her that she could be like a princess someday. Now that Hime is in middle school, overweight and unpopular, life is a cruel disappointment. Tango Minami is a popular high school boy who hides his job as a ballroom dance instructor to maintain his image. But when Tango’s mom urges Tango to take Hime as a student, everything gets turned upside down! Will Tango’s classmate find out about his embarrassing job?!  And will Hime find the self-confidence needed to be like a princess on the ballroom floor?!
Both titles debut next spring.

rzetlin asked: Do Kodansha handle direct distribution of digital manga in Canada? Your titles are missing in iTunes and Google Play. At Kobo, some of your titles are missing like UQ Holder Volume 1, Genshiken: Second Season Volume 4, Love Hina Omnibus 5, Shugo Chara! Volumes 3 to 6, etc. Canadians do not have access to Nook - an American book store. There is an opportunity for Kodansha to improve on its digital manga distribution in Canada.

Kodansha doesn’t handle any of its distribution directly. We’re distributed through Random House, so anywhere that has access to Random House books or ebooks also has access to our stuff.

Thanks for pointing out the missing Kobo books. We’re having our ebook team go through the Kobo books and fix any that didn’t get fed out correctly.

And our books aren’t distributed through Google Play anywhere yet. Hopefully soon.

Anonymous asked: Can you explain what caused the shift in American manga publishers going from startups and branches of American publishing houses, to the current landscape where most are subsidiaries of the Japanese publishing companies? I would imagine this setup would make it easier to get approvals on things like cover design, but do you feel like there are any drawbacks? Less autonomy maybe?

There are absolutely no drawbacks to working at a subsidiary. ;)

patzz1314 asked: Is there any chance or possibility that shingeki no kyojin would become a weekly shounen? I love the anime/manga so much! And I and thankful for its existence, but to me waiting a month after a release is process filled with anxiety.

Keep in mind, chapters of weekly series tend to be much shorter than the average Attack on Titan chapter (around 50 pages). So I doubt Isayama would want to change the entire structure of the manga just to do it weekly. (Plus, why would Bessatsu Shonen Magazine want to give up its biggest hit?)
