Digital Manga Publishing has revealed through its updated catalog that it has acquired Fusanosuke Inariya's Maiden Rose (Hyakujitsu no Bara) boys-love manga. The military story centers on the relationship between Commander Taki Reizen of the 15th Armored Division "Rosen Maiden" and Klaus "Mad Dog" von Wolfstadt, a knight and Taki's faithful subordinate. Oakla Publishing prints the manga under the Aqua Comics imprint in Japan. DramaQueen had announced that it had licensed the same manga for North America, but never actually released the manga before effectively leaving the publishing business.
The boys-love animation brand PrimeTime is adapting the manga into a video anime series. The first volume, "Waga Kishi" ("My Knight"), shipped in Japan on May 29, and the second volume, will ship on September 25.
Update: Digital Manga will ship the first volume of Maiden Rose on March 24 under its Juné imprint.
