The manga versions of Atsushi Ohkubo's Soul Eater (pictured at right), Yuhki Kamatani's Nabari no O, Shinobu Ohtaka's Sumomomo Momomo, Masahiro Totsuka's Bamboo Blade and Seventh Expansion's Higurashi - When They Cry (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni) have all been acquired for American distribution by Yen Press. The publisher made the announcements during its Saturday afternoon panel at New York Comic Con 2008. Not coincidentally, each title has a related anime tie-in that was made in the last three years. All five will initially run in the Yen Plus anthology magazine, the first issue of which will be sold starting on July 29. Standard volumes of all five will go on sale in the first part of the next year.
A day before the convention, Yen Press had announced its acquisition of Gaku Tsugano's The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya manga and its joint venture with Little, Brown Readers for Young Readers to release Nagaru Tanigawa's original Haruhi Suzumiya light novels.
