  1. […] Lissa Pattillo looks over the manga samplers she got at SDCC, which give a hint of things to come, and she also posts the August list of new releases. […]

    Just FYI, I am pretty sure the Blood+ release is a light novel release…not that it means you shouldn't pick it up, or anything.

  3. Saaria says:

    Do anyone know if trained by the boss is gonna be released i cant find it on their homepage, and i have been emailing them for 2-3 times without a reply would really like to know

    Thanks from Saaria

    • Lissa says:

      I've asked Digital Manga about that book as well with no reply. It looks like one of their books that got cut from the schedule. However they likely still hold the license to it, for all we know anyway, so while it isn't scheduled for release now, it could appear back on their listings in the future.
