I absolutely love Seven Seas (Kodomo no Jikan issues aside) and this only helps. From the light novels to the yuri, they are my new favorite company.
Hayate X Blade!
Whoo!
....
Now license Strawberry Shake Sweet and MariMite and I'll love you even more...
(And Haruhi while we're at it)

I have been meaning to check out Hayate Cross Blade. Something about an all-girl school in a Tenjou Tenge-esque environment should prove rather interesting. Cool

Hmm, can anyone give any more info on the other titles? Googling doesn't help especially on those novel titles due to its genericness.

Yay, more yuri.

I've heard good things about Hayate Cross Blade, so I've been hoping it would get licensed. I'll definitely be getting it.

I've never heard of Akatsuki-iro no Senpuku Majo, but I just picked up The Last Uniform today. I'll probably end up getting it, but I'll want to hear more about it before I make a decision.

Same for the new yuri novels. I like the idea, but I know nothing about them, so I can't make a decision yet, but I'm definitely interested.

Yes!, I love Seven Seas. Very Happy They continue to make this Yuri Fangirl very happy. I have really enjoyed the excellent work that they have been doing on Kashimashi and I am looking forward to reading more of their excellent Yuri Manga. Also, I am thinking about getting their light novels especially Strawberry Panic!.

Thanks, for mentioning "The Last Uniform." I didn't know that it was out yet and now I know to look for it the next time I go to the bookstore.

They've got Tokyopop, Viz, Dark Horse, Del Ray, Broccoli, Vertical, DMP, CPM, DrMaster, ADV, Blu, Dramaqueen, ect, ect, ect. As Seven Seas is, like, the only domestic company that releases yuri right now and they don't even have all that much of it, I hardly think those who aren't fans of the genre are getting shafted. I can't imagine being disappointed that a previously completely overlooked genre is finally starting to make its way stateside (and very slowly and in small numbers I might add), regardless of whether or not your a fan.

Anyways, I've wanted to read Hayate Cross Blade for a little while now, but I've not had a lot of time and a lot of other things took precedence over downloading scanlations. A hard copy, however, I can bring with me anywhere, so it won't be an issue Anime smile I can't wait Very Happy

I love how Seven Seas keeps licensing seinen(young men's) yuri manga Smile

I'll be adding both Hayate Cross Blade and Akatsuki-iro no Senpuku Majo to my list of "to get" which is now very very big list >.<

Hayate Cross Blade is a seinen manga currently being serailized in the seinen manga magazine Dengeki Daioh.

Akatsuki-iro no Senpuku Majo is a seinen manga currently being serailized in the seinen manga magazine Comic High! (the magazine thats also serializing Kodomo no Jikan).

Neat.

I like the direction they seem to keep to be headed, and giving us a part of the market was was so largely unavailable before.

I think it was supposed to be out a week or two ago, but its taking a little while to get to stores. Tetragrammaton Labyrinth is supposed to be out as well, but I didn't see that.

Let the boys have their yuri.
It distracts them from our yaoi so it's a good thing.

There really is scads & scads of shonen & shojo out there. yaoi & yuri is maybe 10%.
Overall Viz is safe for those who hate yaoi & yuri. Same for Dark Horse, I believe. Other than the fact Clamp flirts with both, but are really not either, I really don't see Del Rey ever doing yuri or yaoi & Broccoli's main line seems safe
