Go! Comi Announces New Licenses from the Creator of “The Devil Within”

LOS ANGELES. 3 October 2008 - Manga publisher Go! Comi made two new license announcements this past weekend at Yaoi-Con. Both titles are by Ryō Takagi, creator of Go's wildly popular series “The Devil Within.” The new titles are “Get the Moon” and “Bran Doll.”

Get the Moon” tells the story of Getto, and his complex relationship with Moon – a handsome android created by his father! Getto's sibling rivalry with Moon is inflamed by the fact that his father clearly prefers his android creation over his human one. As Getto and Moon fight for their “father's" approval, will their relationship turn to hate – or love?

Bran Doll” details the misadventures of the hapless Fen, who signs up for his country's Special Defense Force, only to find himself enrolled in the Special DOLL Force instead! Now Fen must hunt down and retrieve a collection of precious, missing bran dolls (that's right – bran dolls, the kind they use in voodoo) that have been scattered to the four corners of the world. Unfortunately for Fen (but fortunately for the reader) he has four beautiful men to accompany him on his quests!

“As fans of ‘The Devil Within’ know, Ryō Takagi has a genius for taking a really twisted idea and turning it into a story that's both hilarious and engrossing,” said Go! Comi Creative Director Audry Taylor. “'Get the Moon' and ‘Bran Doll’ are even more twisted than ‘The Devil Within’ – and even more fun.” Taylor added that both titles have more boy's love overtones than “The Devil Within.”

Go! Comi will release ‘Bran Doll’ in June 2009; ‘Get the Moon’ will be published in October 2009.

Go! Comi is known for its exciting manga series and top-notch production values. Among its publications are the Bookscan best-sellers “The Devil Within” and “Her Majesty’s Dog,” and the Eisner Award-nominated “After School Nightmare,” which was named one of the Top Ten Great Graphic Novels for Teens of 2008 by the Young Adult Library Services Association. Two other Go! Series, “Train + Train” and “Cantarella,” have also been cited by the YALSA Great Graphic Novels list.
