Vampire Knight: Life is a bonus manga chapter by Matsuri Hino taking place during the same timeline as the manga's story. The chapter will be released as a digital-exclusive.
Viz's Shojo Beat will release its first limited edition volume, Vampire Knight volume 19, in October and the Vampire Knight box set 2 compiling volumes 11-19 in November. The limited edition volume 19 will come with an exclusive cover and mini art book, and a regular edition will also ship at the same time.
Tanaka launched Meteor Prince in Hakusensha's Lala magazine last year and the second and final compiled volume shipped in May. The story revolves around Hako Natsuno, an unusually unlucky girl who is hit by a naked man named Io when he falls from the sky. He claims his reason for coming to earth to ask her to bear his child.
Tokyopop previously published Tanaka's Pearl Pink manga.
Shouoto's The Demon Prince of Momichi House ran in Kadokawa Shoten's Asuka magazine and the fourth compiled volume shipped on June 26. The story follows Himari Momochi, who lost both her parents in an accident and was raised in an orphanage, but receives a will detailing her inheritance on her 16th birthday. She goes to the Momochi family estate, which turns out to be on the border between the real world and the spirit world. There, she's attacked by a demon, but is saved by a mysterious, shapeshifting man named Aoi.
The first volume of Meteor Prince will ship in January 2015 followed the The Demon Prince of Momichi House in July 2015.
