License to be announced at Anime Weekend Atlanta by Dark Horse

At Anime Weekend Atlanta this weekend, Dark Horse will officially announce that they have acquired the license to MPD-Psycho.

Dark Horse is aiming for a late-second quarter, probably June, release date for the first volume.

Mike Gombos, Japanese Licensing Manager Director of Asian Licensing at Dark Horse, called MPD-Psycho "the gorriest manga you'll ever read," but ads, "the importance of this piece far transcends its shock value, as the art is cleaner than most series I have seen (available in English), and the mystery in the story is riveting."

MPD-Psycho has been adapted into a 6-episode live-action mini-series, directed by Takashi Miike, which has been released in North America by ADNESS.

MPD-Psycho is written by Eiji Ohtsuka and illustrated by Shou Tajima. 11 volumes have been released to date in Japan.

Please not that Mike Gombos is now the Director of Asian Licensing at Dark Horse. ANN was unaware that Mr. Gombos had been prmoted. ANN apologises for this error.
