Animate USA announced on Thursday that it is releasing Youka Nitta's Platinum Pasta and You Higashino's Theorem of Desire on web retailer Amazon's Kindle store. The company will also release Volume 2 (Part 4) of Naduki Koujima's Selfish Love manga, which it began distributing for the Kindle e-reader last May.
Platinum Pasta centers on a man named Mamiya who opened an Italian restaurant one year ago. He gets ingredients from the fisherman Ohsuga and the herb garden owner Eiji. After Mamiya sees them in a lover's fight, he decides to intervene.
Theorem of Desire is a sequel to Higashino's Aphrodisiac Kiss manga, which Animate USA released in October 2011. In the sequel's story, Takamura rescues Ayashima from an attack, and the men's romantic relationship blossoms.
Selfish Love is a two-volume series that follows a university Honors Society president who selects a hapless classmate as his vice president. In this climactic volume, the president jeopardizes the vice president's honor by refusing to give up on him.
ANIMATE USA is the American arm of the ANIMATE retail chain for character goods, and it has been releasing boys-love manga from Libre on the Kindle e-book platform since April of last year. Libre Publishing Co., Ltd. originally released all three of the above titles in Japan.
