YES! Now I can finally read Kobato!^^ May check out the Romeo x Juliet manga adaptation (I think the manga came second, right?)

I'm glad someone in America is gonna publish Kobato as a graphic novel now. After Newtype USA (which was serializing Kobato in English) folded, I thought it had become lost in license limbo.

Nice, Kobato! Very Happy

Also interested in Bunny Drop since it's a josei title, and My Girlfriend's a Geek sounds like it could be loads of fun.

Oh crap, is that right about the author of Darker than Black? They picked up the terribly shojo one instead of the new awesome one? What the heck....

Anything that Yen Press licenses I will buy.

Kobato and Bunny Drop look great, and Darker Than Black and Romeo and Juliet for anime tie ins.

I'll have to research the rest of the titles because I'm sure I'll be interested in them all.

Yen Press continues to have good taste.

Except the Darker than Black one. Choose the awesome new shounen one, not the crappy shoujo one!

Awesome, I'll likely just pick up Sasameke.

I've heard good things about it and was told it was quite an underrated gem.

What a disappointing list. Not a single proper moe/otaku title.

Somehow "My Girlfriend is a Geek" seems like a very market-savvy English rename, and will sell many copies to trendy college-age women who are convinced that "geekiness" is currently chic and hip.

Nice to see license rescues from Yen again, here's to a possible continuation of Gunslinger Girl.

YES! Thank you Yen Press <3

Finally SOMEONE decided to snatch the publishing rights for Kobato (since it was previously running in Newtype which, uh....ya know ^^;

Since it was by CLAMP I was pretty sure it wasn't going to stay in limbo for very long, but still, its good that I don't have to worry about it anymore

just in time for the anime to start in fall too <3

I've been interested in Sasameke for long time, and Usagi Drop also seems interesting. I was also hoping the Darker Than Black mentioned was the Yuji Iwahara one. Seeing William Shakespeare mentioned as a manga author made me crack up.
Most announcements by other companies so far have been rather lackluster. Yen Press has been the best so far!!

A Darker then Black shojo manga? * looks it up*
Are you for real? it looks so out of place

Bunny Drop... I don't know, seems a bit sketchy

Fujoshi, um read a few chapters got to boring for a while. I've seen weirder things just watching girls at cons. Even I do weirder things and I'm not even a fujoshi.

Sasameke, I think i've heard something (many things actually) like this. Besides it having sports, not a harem show now..

*all these based on reading a summery and 5 pages
