posted on by Karen Ressler
Yen Press announced at Seattle's Sakura-Con on Friday that it has licensed Kin-iro Mosaic, Scum's Wish, Tohyou Game, Rose Guns Days Season Two, and Puella Magi Oriko Magica: Sadness Prayer and plans to release the series in print.
Yen Press also announced that it will release the following titles from Square Enix digitally:
- Grim Reaper and Four Girlfriends by writer Shin Suyama and artist CHuN
- Little Witches Necklace by Chinoku
The manga's story begins with Shinobu, a 15-year-old, seemingly "pure Japanese" girl who did a homestay in Great Britain. Even after coming back to Japan, she still misses her time overseas. One day, an air mail letter arrives from Alice, the girl in Shinobu's host family in Great Britain. The letter reads, "Shinobu, I'm coming to Japan!" The "Japanese/British girls' light comedy" follows the lives of Shinobu, Alice, and other girls from both Japan and Great Britain.
Hanabi and Mugi are bathed in envious gazers from all around as a beautiful couple with excellent moral conduct. But these two apparently perfect people in an apparently perfect relationship share a secret they can't tell anyone.
Yokoyari launched the manga in Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine in 2012, and Square Enix published the fifth volume on March 25.
An anime adaptation has been greenlit.
Tohyou Game is written by Chihiro and goo and illustrated by Tatsuhiko. The story takes place at a high school that starts voting for the most popular kid, where losing the popularity contest means death.
