Yen Press Rescues Pandora Hearts, Rereleases Azumanga

Pandora HeartsTwo new unannounced Yen Press manga listings popped up on Amazon.ca today. The first is a pleasant-to-see license rescue from the now-deceased Broccoli Books: Pandora Hearts by Jun Mochizuki. The second title is Jun Mochizuki’s other work, Crimson Shell. As usual, please keep in mind that Amazon listings do not count as official license annoucements and nothing is confirmed until released by the publisher themselves.

Also on the Yen Press newsfront comes word via an interiew with YP’s Kurt Hassler, that the company is planning a rerelease of Azumanga Daioh at the end of the year. Though the series was previously released in full by ADV, Yen Press’s edition will have new translations and lettering. Tiamat follows up the original interview with a few Azumanga-specific questions including confirmation that the release will be a rerelease of the original series and not the 10th Anniversary addition currently coming out in Japan.
