Oh awesome! I just started reading this online, if I can read it in book form instead, that would be great! I wonder who's releasing it...?

Holy shit. Hourou Musuko is licensed? Possibly the license of 2009 if that's the case. (Gonna be weird to get used to typing Wandering Son...)

The article and Amazong listing says Fantagraphics, one of the most respected comics publisher in North America.

Ah, guess I didn't read it close enough. Anime hyper
I'm looking at their webpage, it doesn't look like they've done a lot of translations...?

Wow this is unexpected news. I'm surprised that this is being picked up for release here. And by 'Fantagraphics'. I wonder if there are any plans to release 'Aoi Hana'.

I'll have to check this title out now. I have yet to finish the manga version of 'Aoi Hana' (I've already watched the entire TV adaptation - and enjoyed it a great deal).

Am I dreaming? I'm dreaming right? Something this good could never happen...

Seriously, I am in shock. One of my favorite manga getting licensed; this is a dream come true. Very Happy

They've been putting out comics from all around the world for about 30 years now so they have plenty of translations from numerous different languages under their belt (including a number of Japanese titles). Fantagraphics can usually be relied upon to do a good job.

Whoa, awesome! I've been wanting to check out this series, considering I absolutely adore the Aoi Hana anime.

I am assuming you meant to say "the license of 2010"? Wink

Awesome! Hourou Musuko is one of my favorite series. I was just thinking of rereading it from the beginning since it's hard to keep on top of what's going on as a monthly manga, but now I'll just wait for the English tankoubon. Very Happy

I only read a bit of the Aoi Hana manga along with this, but I loved the anime adaption of Aoi Hana (first yuri/shojo-ai anime I ever watched), so I might be looking forward to this. Smile
