Story of two prison inmates from Pathos creator Mika Sadahiro

801 Media, the adult yaoi imprint of Digital Manga Publishing, has announced on Monday that it has licensed the Under Grand Hotel manga by Pathos creator Mika Sadahiro. In the story, two inmates named Sen and Swordfish attempt to survive the infamous "Under Grand Hotel" prison by relying on each other. Each of the two volumes of the manga will have over 320 pages. The first volume will ship in June of 2010.

801 Media's sister imprint Juné has already licensed and published Sadahiro's Pathos manga in North America.

Update: Under Grand Hotel was first released by Sanwa Publishing in 2005 with 6.9-inch by 5.1-inch pages. Futabasha has since republished the manga under its Futaba Bunko Meisaku Series imprint this year with 5.9-inch by 4.2-inch pages. 801 Media is publishing the newer bunko edition.
