Never thought Shonen Note would be license. Still hoping that Yen Press will reprint Nabari No Ou, I really want to read the manga. Hopefully more of Yuhki Kamatan‘s manga will be released in English.

Go, Go, Loser Ranger! Is probably a decent attempt at adapting the title and getting international audiences to recognize the Sentai aspect with Power Rangers.

Hype for Wistoria and Loser Ranger. Will definitely check those out.

Power Rangers has already been doing for years: from the "Go-Onger" vehicle easter egg in RPM, the (horrible) implementation of Sentai only teams in Mega Force, to even having a whole episode of Dino Thunder literally center around the rangers watching an episode of Abaranger.

Title: Miss Miyazen Would Love to Get Closer to You
Author(s): Taka Aki

This is an okay series, but I'd rather they'd picked Taka Aki's earlier work Urami Koi, Koi, Urami Koi. for official publication.

*sigh* And of course a bunch are more generic isekai titles. Surprise surprise. Iceblade Sorcerer doesn't even mention the MC being transported, but yet is listed as a "riveting new isekai series". Right. Riveting.

At least Run Away With Me, Girl sounds interesting. I like that there is the 10 year time jump from when the MC's graduated as it should hopefully provide for a more adult (by that I mean not school girl centered) yuri title. I'll be keeping my eye out for that one.

Go Go Loser Ranger is... well, it makes sense, I guess. Is Kodansha the one that used MTL or was that Kadokawa?

I think you've forgotten about the digital-only licenses they announced at their panel.

Go, Go, Loser Ranger! is exciting to see licensed. It's a great follow-up to Negi's work on Quintessential Quintuplets, being so different and yet with the same level of attention to detail, so, this is exciting to see.

Similarly, I really like Shangri-la Frontier, been reading it digitally on Crunchyroll, and so being able to own physical copies is a very tempting opportunity.

Is it at all clear what the "Fully Compiled" Ghost in the Shell is supposed to be? Just everything there is slammed into one book or another revision of some sort?

I thought I recognized that art; Urami Koi is awesome.

Maybe they will restore the two missing pages from the first story arc. Wink

This is a pretty disappointing selection of titles for me. I will probably pick up In the Clear Moonlit Dusk, since I much prefer physical releases, but that'll be it from this batch of licenses.

Run Away… and Shonen Note both sound like instant buys for me.
