Q:Hi there! I was just wondering if there is going to be a seventh volume of Toradora. I really enjoy the manga!
There most certainly is. Though perhaps it’d be more accurate to say, “There will be.”
Since we’re currently caught up with the releases of the series in Japan, we have to wait until the 7th volume has been released before we can start work on it. The volume has yet to be solicited, much less released, in Japan. However, we’re projecting to have the volume out here sometime around March/April 2015. —CC
A few new office copies for August rolled in the other day, and they look stunning! We’ve got a couple of debuts, namely in KOKORO CONNECT (out August 5) and ALICE IN THE COUNTRY OF JOKER: THE NIGHTMARE TRILOGY (also out August 5).
Q:Nichijou. Please. Don't give us that "won't sell" bullshit
I’ll defer to our previous statements on the series.
Nichijou is an incredibly fun series, and has a very unique charm to it. Unfortunately, its humor is incredibly steeped in gags, Japanese wordplay, and generally bizarre scenes—stuff that hasn’t exactly been able to find much of an audience here in the US manga market.
Could it do well? Possibly. That isn’t something I’d be willing to risk, given the trends of such series and their performance Stateside. I could possibly see the first few volumes selling, but this is the kind of manga that would have a very high reader-attrition rate. It simply couldn’t support itself, and this effects the publishers bottom-line—meaning that is less manga we’re able to license and bring over. —CC
Q:i went out today and bought strike witches: Maidens in the sky vol.1 and 2. I'm so excited to get Strike witches: the sky that connects us!
Q:My copy of Gakuen Polizi came yesterday and I read it already! Can't wait for volume 2!! Thanks for licensing it :)
Glad to hear you enjoyed it!
While this Morinaga work may be a bit different from the others we’ve released so far, I think it is a really great, fun title. Expect volume 2 sometime late-Spring 2015/early-summer 2015. —CC
Q:Will No Game no Life manga have color pages? Ah I can't wait to read it!~
Whatever color pages are in the Japanese tankoubon will be featured in our release as well. So…yes. There should be a few color pages. ;) —CC
Q:Are you guys bringing over the no game no life manga or lite novel?
We have the license to the manga, which we’ll be releasing this October! —CC
ATTENTION: D-FRAG! volume 1’s release date has been shifted from July 15 to August 5 — Apologies for this delay, manga fans. Our initial printing didn’t meet our anal standards of quality, so we had it reprinted to ensure the best release possible for our fans. —CC
