News Animate to Bring More Libre Manga to Kindle in April
posted on 2010-04-07 04:40 EDT by Egan Loo
Animate USA (the American arm of the Animate retail chain for character goods) has announced that it will translate and release books from Japan's Libre Publishing Co., Ltd. on the Amazon Kindle e-book platform. Animate USA has already released CJ Michalski's boys-love manga Delivery Cupid, and it plans to release three more titles from Libre's B-Boy boys-love imprint in April:
- You Asagiri's Golden Cain
- Haruka Minami's Love a La Carte!
- Nase Yamato's Pet on Duty
Animate USA plans to continue releasing four or more titles every month. The Be Beautiful imprint of the defunct distributor Central Park Media once published Golden Cain and Love a La Carte! in North America, while Broccoli Books' Boysenberry Books imprint published Delivery Cupid and Pet on Duty. Animate bought a stake in Broccoli Books' parent company Broccoli in January of 2008, about 12 months before Broccoli shut down its Broccoli International USA subsidiary.
Kindle Books can be read on Amazon's own Kindle devices (in three different versions), a free App for Apple's iPhone/iPod touch/iPad mobile devices and BlackBerry devices, and the free Kindle application for Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
