According to a Friday article on the CNNGo website, the authors of the Kami no Shizuku wine manga say that an English version "will be out by the end of this year." The sister/brother writer team of Yuko and Shin Kibayashi create the manga under the pen name Tadashi Agi with artist Shū Okimoto.

The North American book distributor Simon & Schuster is listing the first volumes of the following book releases by Viz Media:

Psyren
Toshiaki Iwashiro (Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine)
December 2010
Publisher's description: "People are going missing. And rumor has it that the Secret Society Psyren is behind it. But what is Psyren? Just an urban legend? Or could such a conspiracy be for real? Ageha Yoshina's going to find out. And it's not what he's expecting at all. Get ready for the journey of a lifetime - where a telephone calling card is your ticket to chaos!"


Kurozakuro
Yoshinori Natsume (Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine)
November 2010
Publisher's description: "And that's exactly what happens. Mikito wakes up with superstrength. But there's a catch. He may look the same on the outside, but deep inside lurks a monster that craves ultraviolence and the taste of human flesh. 'I used to hate the sight of blood,' says Mikito to himself, 'but now it looks so beautiful to me.'"


Itsuwaribito (Itsuwaribito Utsuho)
Yuuki Iinuma (Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine)
December 2010
Publisher's description: "Utsuho's truthfulness as a child resulted in an enormous catastrophe, and he decided to lie from that day forward. Raised in a village of orphans by a monk, Utsuho is an unrepentant troublemaker. The monk eventually inspires him to help people, but there's no way Utsuho's going to lead an honest life! Instead, he's going to use his talents for mischief and deception for good!"
