Broccoli Books Acquires E'S

Los Angeles, CA (July 26, 2006) - Broccoli Books the publisher that
brought you Juvenile Orion, KAMUI, and the Galaxy Angel series, announced
the acquisition of E'S at Comic Con International.

E'S (pronounced like the letter "s"), by manga artist Satol Yuiga, is
one of the most popular manga running in Japan today.

Kai Kudou is part of an elite organization of psychics known as
Ashurum. Kai is sent on a mission to take custody of other unregistered
illegal psychics in the city of Gald. However, he strays from his companions
and is taken in by Yuuki Tokugawa, an odd-job-man who is currently
working for the guerillas that are in opposition to Ashurum. As Kai spends
more time with Yuuki and his mysterious sister Asuka, Kai starts to
wonder what Ashurum's purpose is - are they trying to protect the psychics
or control them?

E'S is currently running in monthly magazine G Fantasy published by
SQUARE ENIX, and have spawned off an anime series, art books, novels, and
a CD drama. Broccoli Books publisher Kaname Tezuka stated, "We are very
happy to be working with SQUARE ENIX again to bring you another great
manga series. E'S is a very mature series, but I believe the audience
who grew up with Juvenile Orion and are currently reading KAMUI will have
no problem transitioning to E'S." Managing Editor Shizuki Yamashita is
also very excited about E'S. "I have been a fan of E'S for a long time
and am delighted to finally be able to share it with the United
States," she said. "E'S is visually stunning and has a very strong storyline;
I'm sure everyone who picks it up will not be disappointed."

The first volume of E'S is scheduled to be released in January 2007.
There are currently 13 volumes available in Japan.
