Manga Planet announced on Thursday that it has licensed three manga from SOZO Comics. It will add the following titles to its catalog in January:
Title: The Warrior Demigods, Champions of Sparta
Creators: DLE, Sahoko Yamazaki (story), Potatorus (art)
Release date: January 26
Summary: When a farmer living on Sparta's outskirts finds and raises a child abandoned by Spartans, he has no idea that this strange baby would grow up to become one of the fiercest warriors The Pillar of Heracles has ever taught. People say that only the most talented Spartan soldiers, called the "Demigod Spartans," have the gods' blessings - could Pausanias be one of them?
Title: The Most Tsundere Boss in History
Creators: DLE, Sahoko Yamazaki (story), Tomokichi (art)
Release date: January 28
Summary: One of the most popular manga tropes is that of the tsundere - a cold, moody, often hot-headed character who uses their wild anger to cover up the soft, affectionate emotions they have bottled up deep inside. Could you imagine the hilarity that would erupt if most of history's famous women were tsundere...and your modern-day boss?
Title: Egwin & Friends
Creators: Shiori Kawana (story and art)
Release date: January 29
Summary: Forty-something penguin Egwin would just want nothing more but to laze around at home and do nothing, but unfortunately, life always gets in the way! What are he and his animal friends up to again today?
