posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
North American publisher Digital Manga Inc. announced at its panel at Fanime on Saturday that it has licensed Hideyoshico's Apple and Honey (Ringo ni Hachimitsu, pictured at right) and Apple and Honey: His Rose Colored Life (Kare no Barairo no Jinsei, pictured far right) manga and Natsuki Zippo's Wolf Magic (Ōkami wa Mahō o) boys-love manga (pictured below left) for print.
Hideyoshico's Apple and Honey and the sequel Apple and Honey: His Colored Life are each one-volume manga. Their stories begin when Natsuki Matsuda, a gay second-year college student, is invited to a curry club by a younger man. Tokyo Mangasha released the two volumes in 2011 and 2012.
Tokyo Mangasha also released the one-volume Wolf Magic manga in Japan last August. The story follows college student Higuchi when he meets the older student Nagase. Nagase is taciturn and seemingly expressionless at first, but he opens up to Higuchi when they get to know each other.
In addition, Digital Manga revealed that it will release the eighth and final volume of Hideyuki Kikuchi and Saiko Takaki's Vampire Hunter D manga and the second volume of Muku Ogura and Narise Konohara's Castle Mango boys-love manga. The company stated that Yaoi-Con will take place again next year, but cannot announce the location and dates yet.
