Did they say anything about Fairy Tail Masters Edition at the panel? It feels like it's been forever since the fifth one came out...

I'm very happy that "Witch Hat" got picked up, I am absolutely loving the series so far and I'll be sure to buy this official English print release.

Also I think it's cool that Kodansha is going to be releasing BL and Yuri manga. I've heard that "10 Dance" is popular in Japan. I don't know much about "Yuri Is My Job!" but I'll check it, I'm not so sure about that summary after re-reading it.

Witch Hat Atelier is excellent, and I'm excited that it's being brought over. I'm also happy that Kodansha will be venturing into bl and yuri.

The fact that Eden's Zero is getting a fast release in October the SAME month that Japan is getting the manga release is crazy, not even The Seven Deadly Sins and My Hero Academia got released that fast, it shows that Kodansha has tremendous faith in Eden's Zero, I really hope this series does well.

I bet a bunch of people are saying to themselves finally Witch Hat Atelier!

But, I’m legit checking what year it is with other English publishers starting to pick up BL books now. Don’t think I’ll buy Hitorijime My Hero though since the announcement reminds me I never finished watching the anime.

10 Dance has a bit of a drawn-out publishing history and different aesthetics. So I’m a little hesitant to put it in the same category honestly. And… I see checking social media the semantic battles have already begun. Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop But, I may pick it up since I used to be into ballroom dance.

I have been trying to support almost every yuri title that comes out in English. However, Yuri Is My Job! is not one that was on my radar at all before being licensed. Still, it sounds like it could be funny.

They say they’re gonna restock the Akira box set, but I just want them to sell them individually, or even digitally. I really don’t want that big box (nor can I afford it all at once), and I don’t really want to buy the current left-to-right volumes.

I am so happy Witch Hat Atelier has gotten license. I figure it was a matter of time. While I have not yet read the manga I have heard of it from a manga blog a while back and the plot feels like it would be too my liking (plus from reading the summery of the story it looks to be similar to Little Witch Academia by studio TRIGGER, but with a different tone from the looks of it). Also, the art work is reminiscent of what I have seen in children's book, and I like that. Now I want a release date. I am prepare preorder the manga.

Also the summery of Yuri Is My Job! by Miman interest me. I think I will check that out as well.

If I recall correctly there are quite a few yuri manga being released around January 2019 but I'll always welcome more.

Not surprised that Edens Zero is getting a physical release, and I can't wait to start collecting it! Although I think my shelf may say otherwise if it could talk. >.>
Also planning on getting both the collection of Mashima's stories and the Laxus spin-off.

March 2019! It's mentioned in the article :) (the planned release dates are listed at the end of each new title summary.)

Oh, I see.Thanks! Smile I was scanning through the article last night to see if a release date was mention and it would appear I missed it. However that is such a long wait. Oh well! I can imagine it takes a while to translate manga.

The best story out of all of them is the last one, "Fighting Group Mixture". It is without a doubt one of the funniest damn things Hiro has written.
