Sigh, I REALLY wish Kodansha would save the original Kindaichi series from the unfinished hell of the Tokyopop releases.

Runway de Waratte is a shonen manga, so the title should be 3 shoujo and 1 shonen manga.

Apparently, Kodansha introduced this series as "shoujo" at their panel. You're not wrong, though *shrug* - https://twitter.com/debaoki/status/1152689533982371842

We're aware it runs in a shonen magazine, but Kodansha Comics did specifically tell us all four licenses were shojo manga, as another commentor noted.

I hope Vampire Dormitory will get a physical release at some point in additional the digital release. I love Ema Toyama's works, but I'm not into collecting digital manga.

Seeing this just reminds me that House of the sun is still digital only...

Queen Bee does interest me, hope it sees print one day.

So Kodansha's going with Tokyopop's names for Initial D? I remember picking up the first volume of Initial D back in 2002 (had started watching the anime the year before) and being horrified when Tokyopop promptly announced future releases plus the US anime release would be "Americanized." Volume one sits alone on my shelves...
