Yen with Tena on S-string, Amazon Predicts Some More

Slow week for manga news here on Kuriousity so I thought I should give you guys something atleast ;)  While doing my usual Amazon browsing today, I noticed a lot of previously announced Yen Press titles have popped up in recent weeks, though among them it seems there is one that’s yet to be formally announced: Tena on S-string by Sesuna Mikabe. Remember, nothing posted on Amazon is an absolute, but it’s a pretty darn good indication.

Other titles I came across that I don’t believe have been announced yet (please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong), are: Love Machine by Amayo Tsuge, Idol Pleasures by Fuhri Misasagi, and Chocolate Surprise by Lily Hoshino. All three are boys’ love stories listed by Aurora Publishing, aka Deux Press. Also under Aurora Publishing is Tango by Tetsuzo Okadaya. UDON also has listed The Big Adventures of Majoko by Tomomi Mizuna and Ninja Baseball Kyuma by Shunshin Maeda.

    Nice to see more titles being solicited- it seems like we'd had a dry spell with TP and other's cutbacks recently.

    I'm looking forward to Chika Shiomi's Queen of Ragtonia.

    The Udon books look to be kids manga, which explains the lower prices-

    While the 2nd title looks to be another kids manga, about a boy ninja who wants to be a baseball player

    This is a curious development, and nice to see alongside their Capcom manga and Shojo Manwha lines.

    PS- I also just remembered that Tango showed up on AAAAnime's preorder list, so it's kind of official. Looks to be another BL title [c'mon Aurora, publish more Josei and Seinen :)! You can do it!]

    TANGO!!! Oh man, talk about real men in manga. I was hoping they would bring this one over here, the mangaka does work in ML mags like Uragekidan – don't get me wrong, I love Josei and all, but if Deux is going to make a habit of bringing over more manly BL, then I'm all for it.

  5. […] Man of Tango looks familiar, that’s because the now defunct Deux Press had licensed the title back in 2008. It’s great to see such a classy looking book get a second […]
