posted on 2011-05-27 16:00 EDT
The American Internet retailer Amazon.com is listing an upcoming English release for Shinano Oumi's boys-love/yaoi manga Yakuza Cafe from the North American publisher Digital Manga Publishing (DMP) with an October 4, 2011 release date. The product description indicates that the manga revolves around an innocent man who, after the death of the grandmother who raised him, is sent to an address where he finds a unique cafe. DMP has not responded to ANN's request for comment.
Amazon also lists an upcoming collected release from Yen Press for The Innocent, a manga created by former Marvel Studios CEO and current chair of Production I.G USA Avi Arad, anime director Jun'ichi Fujisaku, and Korean artist YaSung Ko. The series launched in Japan in October 2010; Yen Press announced that it would serialize the comic in its Yen Plus digital anthology.
The series revolves around a detective who, after being executed for a crime he did not commit, is sent back to earth with special powers to prevent similar executions of the innocent.
A listing on Amazon does not necessarily indicate definite release plans.
