Del Rey Launching Mature Line

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Basilisk and Suzuka to be Published Differently than other Del Rey Manga

Del Rey will be launching a mature line for a couple of their upcoming manga releases, including Basilisk and Suzuka.

While the manga will not be labelled with a different imprint, they will be presented with different packaging than Del Rey's other manga. They will be shrink wrapped, rated M for mature and will have a larger, 5.5" x 8.25" trim (compared to the 5" x 7.5" standard). They will also have a higher $13.95 price point.

Del Rey informed us that they will not be censoring the mature manga and that publishing it in this manner is a way for them to responsibly publish it in its entirety.

Basilisk volume 1 is due in May 2006 while Suzuka volume 1 will be released in September 2006.
