As soon as I saw Umineko I let out an ear-piercing scream. That is all. The other licenses are cool too, but UMINEKOOOOOOOOOO

I really like the sound of those Thermae Romae, Umineko and Kaoru Mori omnibuses.

I knew My Fanatic Rabbit would be licensed. As Seven Seas has the Ichijinsha titles, their only option is the Mad Garden stuff. Meaning this, and the Visual Fanbook.

Some good stuff here, though. I'll definitely be jumping on Thermae Romae. I like Blood Lad's style, but I'm not much of an ecchie/romance person. But it does remind me...How about licensing the Square Enix title Hell Hell?

EDIT: Thought the fanbook was Mag Garden, but it's Pict Press. Still, I guess that one can still be licensed by YP.

Triage X, The Misfortune of Kyon & Koizumi, and Umineko are something I look forward to.

I'll have to look into Blood Lad for more info.

Very excited for Thermae Romae, especially after enjoying the (too brief) anime adaptation earlier this year. I'm also glad to see more Kaoru Mori stuff being available. I'd love to see Emma get rescued, since I wasn't really aware of it until after CMX went away (and now some volumes are prohibitively expensive to acquire used).

Good thing: Sweet for the pick up off My Fanatic Rabbit, so likely it'll be a soon-as-can-be pre-order.

Bad thing: Ooo, my poor wallet. Anime hyper

HELL YES UMINEKO!
I've been collecting Higurashi and am even up to date with all 17 volume currently, and damn my wallet is going to take a hit once Umineko starts being released. Oh well, Yen has another eager and dedicated buyer in me for this series.

Thermae Romae looks mildly interesting, mainly in part because I'm a Roman History nut. Do not know if it will meet my expectations or even be very good, but I'll definitely keep an eye on reviews of it when it gets released.

Holy crap, Umineko will actually be getting an official English release...!? Looks like I'll have some reverse importing to do, just to support the endeavor. You're worth it, Umineko! Wink

I do hope they abide by the WH's established localization, though.

First time in a while I haven't been interested in any of the series of YP's batch announcements. The Kyon and Koizumi seems like some tsukkomi fanfiction gag. Not really worth it. And Shouji Sato is a top artist in my book, but I don't think much of his individual stories.
