posted on by Karen Ressler
One Peace Books confirmed with ANN on Thursday that it will release the first volumes of the Aquarion Evol and Flowers for Chronous (Kimi no Chronous) manga. Aquarion Evol is slated for April 14, 2015 and Flowers for Chronous is slated for May 19, 2015.
Manga artist Aogiri began the Aquarion Evol mecha series based on Shoji Kawamori and Satelight's original story in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene in 2011 and ended the series in May. Kadokawa shipped the fifth volume in July. One Peace Books describes the series:
Twelve thousand years after Genesis of Aquarion on the planet Vega, Amata Sora meets Mikono Suzushiro. Together, part of the organization Neo-DEAVA, they must defend their planet from relentless invaders attacking from Altair, a sister planet devoid of females. These two unexpected heroes, along with other young men and women, known as Elements, pilot massive robots called Aquaria, in defense of their planet, in a battle against malicious assailants trying to abduct woman from their home planet.
The anime aired in Japan in 2012, and Funimation licensed and released the series in North America.
Satol Yuiga's (E'S, Seventh Saga, At Laz Meridian) Flowers for Chronous (Kimi no Chronous) is currently serialized in Monthly Comic Gene, and the first compiled volume shipped last October. The original plan is credited to MICROSPHERE. One Peace Books describes the story:
Soju Sagara is a lonely, shy high school student employed by a secret organization to investigate violent incidents involving a weapon known only as “SOWN." Teaming up Leon, who has the appearance of a young boy (though in reality is far more) and the Void Association, the pair investigates numerous cases of chaos, each time learning more about the private traumas that fuel our demons.
