Viz Media announced at its Otakon panel on Friday that it has licensed Yuki Shiwasu's Takane & Hana and Meca Tanaka's The Young Master's Revenge manga.
In addition, Viz announced plans to publish Shirow Miwa's RWBY manga in print and a hardcover edition of The Art of the Secret World of Arrietty. The company previously released RWBY chapter by chapter in its digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and The Art of the Secret World of Arrietty in an oversized paperback.
Viz Media describes Takane & Hana (Takane to Hana):
After her older sister refuses to go to an arranged marriage meeting with Takane Saibara, the heir to a vast business fortune, high schooler Hana Nonomura agrees to be her stand-in to save face for the family. But what happens when Hana meets Takane is an unexpected pairing of utter opposites!
Shiwasu began serializing the ongoing manga in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine in December 2014 after first debuting the title as a short. Hakusensha published the eighth volume on July 20. The manga ranked on Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2016 list of best manga for female readers.
Viz Media describes The Young Master's Revenge (Kimi no Koto Zettai ni):
When Leo was a young boy, he had his pride torn to shreds by Tenma, a girl from a wealthy background who was always getting him into trouble. Now, years after his father's successful clothing business has made him the heir to a fortune, he searches out Tenma to enact a dastardly plan—he'll get his revenge by making her fall in love with him!
Tanaka ended the manga in Hakusensha's LaLa magazine on July 24 after serializing it since 2014. Hakusensha shipped the third compiled book volume in February.
Tokyopop published Tanaka's Pearl Pink manga in North America, and Viz Media has published her Meteor Prince manga. CMX Manga published Tanaka's Omukae desu. manga, which inspired a live-action television series last year.
