Really looking forward to getting hold of A Silent Voice, great manga that hasn't got enough attention yet!

Maria the Virgin Witch I don't know, I'll have to have a look before I make any judgement on whether or not to buy the volumes.

I was going to start reading A Silent Voice on CR tomorrow but I'm going to wait for the hard copies to be released as I don't like reading digital copies unless it's through an app or on kindle.

Anyways this is extremely pleasing news Very Happy

Junketsu no Maria is only three volumes. I think Kodansha would be smart to release it as a single omnibus volume.

Interesting titles, but I do have to admit 'Maria the Virgin Witch' is an interesting title. But a Silent Voice looks worth taking a look.

If Maria the Virgin Witch does well, can we get Moyasimon? Pretty please? (Yeah, I know it doesn't work that way, but a fan can dream!)

I've heard good things about A Silent Voice. I wonder if all the positive reviews influenced their decision to publish it.

On the contrary, at three volumes it minimizes the risk that a longer series carries of sales dropping between successive volumes. Unless they really expect it not to sell, I think they'll do better being able to charge "full" price for each volume rather than applying the discount people expect for omnibus editions.

I also want to know if they will consider the sales of this series toward any future chances of reviving Moyasimon! I don't know if the premise/execution of Maria will be to my taste, but if it meant the possibility of more cute microbe manga in the future...

I'm also very excited for A Silent Voice :D I was really impressed with the couple volumes I read on CR and will be most pleased to collect it in print!

That would be nice. I've read about the first volume worth of chapters of Junketsu no Maria and have enjoyed it a lot so far. I actually had a knee-jerk reaction with this news, that I hope they don't drop Maria like they did with Moyashimon. But I don't see why a three volume series should be a problem.

I'm also kind of glad that it's a short series. I really like the concept, but it could probably get old fast if it went of for ten or twenty volumes.
