Tokyopop license rescues available this month

Viz Media announced on Tuesday that it will release three former Tokyopop titles digitally this month: Shirahime-Syo, Duklyon: CLAMP School Defenders, and The Third: Aprentis Girl on the Desert Planet.

Shirahime-Syo is a one-volume collection of tragic short stories by CLAMP (Cardcaptor Sakura, Chobits). Tokyopop released the volume in 2004, and Viz Media will release the manga on January 13.

Tokyopop released both volumes of Duklyon: CLAMP School Defenders in 2003. Viz Media describes the story, also by CLAMP:

In a crisis, a team of justice appears from nowhere. People call them Duklyon, the Clamp School Defenders. To defend our peaceful life, they carry on struggling rain or shine. The enemy, a secret society of evil, is out to conquer the Earth. Go and fight, our Duklyon! Save our Earth!

The first volume will be available on January 20.

Tokyopop released both volumes of The Third in 2008. Ryou Hoshino wrote the story and Nao Goto designed the characters. Ariko Itō drew the manga. Viz Media describes the story:

Many years after a devastating war, Earth is now being watched by a group of beings known as The Third, named for a third red eye on their forehead that can access various computer networks. Navigating this barren, apocalyptic landscape is Honoka, a jill-of-all-trades who uses her powers to keep her friends from The Third's deadly grasp. This prequel to the action packed anime series takes readers to a time before Honoka is known as the formidable but graceful Sword Dancer, to the beginning of her quest to save the world, to a time when she scarcely understands the powers with which she has been blessed…

The first volume will be available digitally on January 27.

An anime adaptation, The Third: The Girl with the Blue Eye, premiered in 2006 and Right Stuf released the series in North America after Kadokawa Pictures USA shut down.
