OMG!!! So, so happy that Vertical picked up Daily Lives of High School Boys! I've been asking for that one in their license request surveys for awhile now, so thank you, Vertical!

Thank you SO MUCH for deciding to make audiobooks for the Bakemonogatari novels! I'm so glad I won't have to actually read my physical books myself now (I'm a slow reader, so listening to audiobooks is usually much faster for me). When Nekomonogatari (White) was announced, I was worried that only the "first" book of each season would get the audio treatment. I absolutely loved the Kizumonogatari audiobook and hope Bakemonogatari does well enough that they'll consider eventually making audiobooks for the entire series!

Lots of great titles here. Loved the Daily Lives of High School Boys anime, so I'm looking forward to reading that one.
And...oh god, Trail of Blood. I read a translation after I watched Super Eyepatch Wolf talk about it on one of his quarterly list videos, and that was a very creepy read. Not like in a supernatural/monster horror kind of way, but the very realistic, psychological kind. Tread carefully if you're gonna try it out. Anime dazed

It took a while, but the Daily Lives of Highschool Boys is finally coming to the U.S.!

Also interested in the new Oshimi series. Happiness is an incredibly creepy, beautifully drawn vampire manga, Hope he’s doing another horror title here.

Great to see Daily Lives coming out here. I hope Goodbye! Isekai Tensei gets a physical release down the line, I've been enjoying that one and would pick it up too.

I'm in the same boat. A series I would request, but didn't ever really think I'd see it get licensed.

So happy about this. Massive fan of the anime, I own it on disc, so I gotta get the manga! Can't wait for this one. Has been awhile since a manga license has excited me. Laughing

Never thought we'd get the Daily Lives manga in English. I watched the anime adaptation when it aired and it's still one of the funniest I've ever seen.

Also just wanted to note that all the digital titles that got licensed were under Kodansha Comics label and the article is worded vaguely that implies that Vertical Comics licensed the digital stuff when they did not. You can double check with the credits page on books.google.com of the various digital titles and they're all released under Kodansha Comics digital lineup.
