Quite the list there. I'm thinking of picking up some Prison School manga myself soon in the future.

So happy to see the Chaika manga get a release! Sure, I'd prefer the light novels but the manga is perfectly fine as well. Definitely buying them I need ALL the Chaika things!

Emma has been relicensed! Very Happy And in two hardcover omnibus editions. Wow. I already own all of CMX's edition, which I'm perfectly happy with. I'll keep an eye out on the quality of Yes Press' release though.

The other license of interest is Chaika. I think I'll wait for reviews of it, however. If it was the light novel then I'd probably pick it up, but since it's a manga adaptation I'd rather hold off.

Chaika. Yes. Chaika. Get. Must. Smile

Manga adaptations of light novels sometimes suffer from a tendency to cut short. Really hope it sticks through for Chaika though...

Picking up the Index manga alongside the LN! Fantastic acquisition.

BTW it is Kazuma Kamachi. Not Kazuya.

I'm in the same boat. I'm happy the more people will have the chance to buy it.

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? It doesn't sound like my type of story, but what a cute title!

Yen Press noted on their Twitter feed that they made a slight error with the Emma announcement - it won't be 2 omnibuses, but 2-in-1 omnibuses.

I know there's a lot of manga to be excited about, but I can't deny the sheer glee I feel about the Emma rescue. I've long been wishing for them to rescue it and give it the same treatment that A Bride's Story got, and after a mildly long wait, that wish has finally come true!

A Certain Magical Index
Trinity Seven
Chaika - The Coffin Princess
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?


My wallet is weeping. Smile

I haven't heard of Prison School, so I'll need to skim some from manga online sites to see if they're good enough for me to get it.

Once again, since those manga are announced for the stateside, I'll need to stop reading them online (scanlation version) and wait until they're published, then I'll buy 'em! Smile

I'm a bit surprised to see Prison School licensed. Kodansha said on their Tumblr they wouldn't license it because the chances of bookstores being willing to carry it due to its graphic sexual violence is slim to none. I wonder if Yen will have the same issue.

I started reading Prison School when I heard there was going to be an anime, and its trashy and addicting. I can't read less than 15 chapters in a sitting.
