Digital Manga Announces New Licenses

Digital Manga Inc. Announces New Title Acquisitions and Anime Expo Guest!

Gardena, CA, May 9, 2006 – Digital Manga Publishing, one of the industry's most innovative manga licensing and publishing companies, has announced the acquisition of two highly anticipated titles. “DMP does more than just yaoi!” exclaims Eric Rosenberger, Sales and Distribution Manager, “Look for more mainstream titles to be announced during the upcoming convention season.”

Coming this Fall are:

Princess Princess by Mikiyo Tsuda
Street Date: 11/1/2006

Peer pressure has never been this intense!

Why is Kouno receiving such an overly warm welcome at his new all boys' school?!? Sure he is pretty handsome for his age, but such a response is usually reserved for cute girls. Little does Kouno know about the secret Hime, or Princess, system in effect at the school. Cute boys are chosen to dress up as girls at school events to provide a touch of femininity in the sea of testosterone! By the time Kouno finally catches on to the oddities of his school, he discovers that he has been elected as a candidate! Kouno, lured by the “benefits” of being a princess, takes on the job with the other two princesses Mikoto and Shihoudani; and the chaos begins.

From the author of The Day of Revolution, comes a hyper active high school story. What's in store for our three princesses as they don Gothic Lolita-styled outfits and are forced to cheer for clubs every day??

Currently being adapted into an anime in Japan, don't miss out on this tale of cross-dressing gone haywire!

Enchanter by Izumi Kawachi

Fulcanelli is an “Enchanter,” an ancient engineer/alchemist who is able to imbue the weapons and gadgets he constructs with magical powers.

Until one can be found, Eukanaria must guard the pendant containing his soul from the many demonic forces that wish to obtain his great power for their own.
In the present day, Haruhiko Kanou is an ordinary boy good with machines and nursing a crush on his science teacher and neighbor Yūki Fujiwara. Little does he know he is Fulcanelli's perfect double and Eukanaria has tracked him down…
