I haven't heard about the Tezuka one before but will most likely check into it when the release gets closer, which will probably take a year. Glad they licensed another Usamaru Furuya manga, he really deserves more output on the english market and recently he have finally gotten it.

No Longer Human was pretty cool to watch in animated form (in Aoi Bungaku/Blue Literature). Kind of interested to see if it's any more detailed in the manga.

More Tezuka and more Furuya can't be a bad thing and it's always a plus when Vertical announce something new, since it pretty much guarantees a quality release.

Be nice to have some more info on these titles though. Anybody know how long they are? Or are they both one-shots?

ANN says that Book of Human Insects is 2 volumes long (will most likely be combined into one) and according to mangaupdates No Longer Human are ongoing with 2 volumes released.

For those looking for more plot info, found this on Osamu Tezuka's official website- http://tezukaosamu.net/en/manga/333.html
It's about a woman who'll do anything for success, and kicks off with her former roommate, whose novel she'd stolen, committing suicide.

Sounds like it'll be all kinds of crazy :)

I guess there was no reason to go to this panel if this was the only news. Glad to hear of another worthy title by Tezuka. I look forward to recommending and reading it.
