posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Viz Media announced on Tuesday that it will release Mario Kaneda's Saving Life manga and Kaishaku's Kannazuki no Miko manga digitally. The first volume of Saving Life is slated for January 12, while Kannazuki no Miko is slated for January 26.
Viz describes Saving Life:
Haruhiko was born rich and grew up pampered. But when he can't take any more of his father's tyrannical behavior, he strikes out on his own, determined to make his own way in the world. But going from super-rich to super-poor is tough on any man (let alone one still in high school!), and it's going to take more hard work than Haruhiko imagined just to make ends meet. He's doing his best and trying to keep up his spirits, but living on bean sprouts and bread crusts is enough to get any man down. Fortunately, he's got his sexy classmates and his own personal (and very hot) maid to help him out!
Viz describes Kannazuki no Miko:
Shy Himeko adores Chikane, the gorgeous and cool "princess" of their exclusive boarding school. She's been looking forward to their joint sweet sixteen birthday party for weeks. But on that fateful day, a shrine appears in the sky, giant robots ravage the school, and Himeko discovers that she is the reincarnation of the Solar Priestess – and Chikane is the reincarnated Lunar Priestess. As dark secrets unravel, one thing is clear: their lives will never be the same...
Kaishaku launched the manga in Kadokawa's Shōnen Ace in 2004. Kadokawa published two compiled book volumes for the series. Tokyopop previously published both volumes of the series in English in 2008 under the title Kannazuki no Miko: Destiny of Shrine Maiden.
The manga was adapted into a 12-episode television anime series, which premiered in 2004. Geneon released the series in three DVD volumes in 2006, and Setai Filmworks later re-released the series under the name Destiny of the Shrine Maiden.
