The North American manga publisher Broccoli Books has opened informational mini-websites for three of its most recently acquired manga. Each currently contains character profiles and volume release schedules, and all three will also include sneak previews.
The first volume of Nui! from the artist and character designer Natsumi Mukai will be published on May 28. This three-volume manga, which Broccoli announced at last year's San Diego Comic-Con, deals with a high school freshman named Kaya whose stuffed toys come to life.
Koi Cupid, from Tokyo Mew Mew creator Mia Ikumi, is a two-volume story about the misadventures of a trio of cupids-in-training. Broccoli Books announced the title in Yaoi-Con 2007, although it will be released under the company's non-boys-love-imprint. The first volume will be released sometime in the spring, but no specific date has been set yet.
Broccoli's final new acquisition, just announced last month, is the supernatural romance manga sola. One volume has been published in Japan so far, and Broccoli plans to have it translated and published by this summer.
