Eventually I’m going to run out of titles completely based on what day of the week it is. I’m only so creative on no hours of sleep! While I finish up some work on an incoming post on holiday shopping (complete with too many random colourful pictures of course), here’re some more Amazon-related finds which may or may not be new but were atleast of interest to me so I like to think satisitically must be of interest to atleast someone else out there! If you’re that person (or people?) then this post is for you :)
As usual, keep in mind that these listings may not be entirely accurate and pending official recognition and announcement from publishers, cannot and should not be considered 100% confirmed. This is especially true regarding release dates. Check it all out under the cut.
I recieved an e-mail from a considerate visitor this morning (thanks, Faye!), listing some Deux titles that haven’t had the usual licensing buzz. While looking them up, I found that several boys’ love sites have them listed as licensed but there seems to be a lack of semi-mainstream coverage. So here’s some more upcoming yaoi for the wanting out there (with most scheduled according to Amazon for a June 2009 release):
And from Deux’s big sister/mother/main line, Aurora Publishing, I came across this title, Love Drops, for which I have no idea what it is. It has a variety of josei artists listed which may or may not be in error.
CMX had some titles listed that’re relatively new to the listings: The Battle of Genyru: Origin One, Broken Blade and The King of Debris. The King of Debris is a title I know for sure was previously announced back in 2007, when DC announced Flex Comics, a collaboration between a Japanese company that would focus on manga distrubution outside their CMX line-up with, to my understanding, a particular focus on online and mobile releases. All three titles above are listed on Amazon as being released under the CMX imprint.
And also hailing back to 2007 is a listing for Nekota Yonezou’s In God’s Arms, which is a title announced by Seven Seas at San Diego Comic Con 2007 as a part of their planned boys’ love line-up, “Bee Line”. Which is all I ever remember hearing about it really… (Edit: Scratch that, all I remember hearing about it minus this disappearance from their website). Also listed under Seven Seas is a June 2009 omnibus of Kashimashi and a bunch of series I haven’t heard of that have really pretty artwork.
Finally, being almost completely unrelated to this post just to be extra-kinda-sneaky, the folks over at the AarinFantasy forums have shared a magazine snippet about an upcoming OVA based on Tarako Kobutoki’s Sex Pistols. The manga is currently being released in English by BLU under the name Love Pistols.
