Q:So i was looking at the no game no life wiki page and its says theres only one vol of the manga so far. Is that true ive noticed wikis wrong with that stuff alot. And if that is the case any chance you guys would start keeping up with the chapters digitally or something?
That’s correct. So far, there is only one tankoubon of the manga adaptation out in Japan. We’ll be releasing it on a per volume basis, so we’ll have to wait as the volumes come out in Japan. —CC
We have a very fun announcement to make. This is regarding one of our original series, that has attracted a very healthy following…

Just a small teaser, not the cover. We’re very happy to bring back this amazing series and hope you all look forward to it! —CC
Q:Why do think Monster Girls is pretty popular here in the West?
Combination of Okayado’s fantastic character designs, premise and the series itself re-imagining an old, fan-favorite genre. Harem comedies have always had a presence in the US anime/manga industry, and while their popularity has waxed and waned throughout the years, it’ll always hold meaning for many fans.
The addition of “monster girls” brought a completely new sense of purpose to the genre, I feel, and it became something much more than “just another harem manga”. Combined with plenty of colorful humor, witty dialog, and little fantasy infusion, Monster Musume is one of the hottest properties we’ve released to date.
And I don’t see the “monster girl” craze dying down anytime in the foreseeable future. Here’s to our monster overlords! —CC
Q:So i have an opinion question for you guys. Do you think light novels would sell better if they were marketed differently? I.e. instead of sold as light novels just sold as regular novels and by that i mean that instead of having them in the manga or foreign section of a bookstore them just placed in the ficton/teen/science fiction or whatever other area depending on the series
Publishers have tried all the various ways to sell light novels in the market place—keeping books authentic and selling in the manga section, changing the covers and selling them in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Young Adult sections, and trying to sell them only as ebooks. What makes or breaks a light novel is not where it is sold, but the individual series itself. Some titles can appeal to a wider audience, others simply don’t and never will. —AA
Q:Do you think the Arpeggio anime is going to get english release?
It would certainly be nice!
That said, we really aren’t privy to the details and workings of the anime industry. I’m sure it can’t hurt to pick up the manga, tell your friends about it, continue watching the anime (in legal places) and [kindly] asking companies like funimation and sentaifilmworks. —CC
Q:can you recommend us some manga that we should pick up from you guys?
Well, it’s all really a matter of personal taste/preference. Not everyone is going to enjoy the same series, and some people may enjoy the same series for entirely different reasons.
Though, we’re proud to have an incredibly varied library and recommend fans to check out all of our offerings; there’s truly a little something for everyone. We’ve got lots of great series that were published in the past, and have plenty of amazing series in-print now and even more coming out in the near future. —CC
When we talk about “de-fragging” a computer, it is generally understood that we are clearing away the clutter of fragmented files in order to make the…
Rebecca Silerverman has hashed out her thoughts of our release of the utterly-hilarious D-FRAG! (vol.1), and it is definitely worth looking at. Have you tried out this non-stop laugh fest of a manga yet?
We’ll be releasing volume 2 later this month, which is even more insane and hilarious than the previous! Oh…and as an added bonus, we’ve got a small preview of the upcoming NO GAME NO LIFE manga in the back of this volume…so be sure to check it out! ;) —CC
