Current manga from Mamotte! Lollipop/Save Me! Lollipop creator

The Amazon online retailer is listing the May 25, 2010 release of Miyoko Ikeda and Michiyo Kikuta's Yokai Navi Runa manga from the North American publisher Del Rey. Amazon's listings do not necessarily indicate definite release plans or dates.

The story centers on Runa Rindō, a fourth-grade elementary schoolgirl. She was abandoned as a baby in front of the Hoshinoko School, and has been raised at the school ever since. One evening, her friend Sae is suddenly kidnapped by mysterious captors. As the "Legendary Child" with a hidden power, Runa must begin her battle to protect the world.

Kikuta has been adapting Ikeda's Yokai Navi Runa children's book series as a manga in Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine since 2008. The third compiled book volume of the manga series shipped in July. Before this series, Kikuta created the Mamotte! Lollipop manga series which Del Rey published in 2007 and 2008. Funimation released the anime version under the title Save Me! Lollipop in North America this year.

Amazon also lists omnibus versions of Akinari Nao and Yuya Aoki's Psycho Busters volumes 6-7 (May 25, 2010), Yuki Urushibara's Mushishi volumes 8-10 (July 27, 2010), Haruka Fukushima's Orange Planet volumes 3-5 (September 28, 2010), and Miyuki Etoo's Hell Girl volumes 7-9 (October 26, 2010).
