Broccoli Books Licenses Until the Full Moon

Los Angeles, CA (August 24, 2004) - Broccoli Books, the company known for localizing the popular manga series Aquarian Age - Juvenile Orion, has announced that they have acquired the publishing rights for the series Until the Full Moon. The first volume of Until the Full Moon is set for October 27, 2004, and will be released as an exclusive to Borders Bookstore, Brentano's Bookstore, Waldenbooks, and Anime Gamers for three months.

Known as Full Moon ni Sasayaite and published by Biblos in Japan, Until the Full Moon is done by manga artist Sanami Matoh, who also did the well-known series FAKE.

A two-volume fantasy-romance Manga series, Until the Full Moon is like a fairy tale, only about vampires and the darker side of the supernatural spectrum instead. "It's our first non-Broccoli title, and I believe fans of bishounen titles like Juvenile Orion will enjoy Until the Full Moon," says managing editor Shizuki Yamashita.

Publisher Hideki Uchino comments, "Juvenile Orion did great at Borders Group, and we're happy to be continuing our relationship with them on our newest title."

About Until the Full Moon Marlo has a problem. On the night of the full moon, this half-werewolf, half-vampire undergoes a mysterious and terrifying transformation:

He turns into a girl.

Desperate for a cure, his parents call on Doctor Vincent, a long time family friend. But Marlo wants to keep his condition secret from Vincent's son, the vampire playboy David.

Unfortunately, the secret gets out, and a new problem surfaces: David is interested in Marlo's female form! If a remedy can't be found, their parents believe the next best solution is marriage - a marriage between Marlo and David!
