Can someone fill me in on why Nazo no Kanojo X goes to Kodansha now? Do Kodansha and Vertical have a business relationship or something? Vertical just released the last omnibus, too.

Vertical and Kodansha USA are very close businesses, both connected to the Kodansha JP company. Recently, Vertical has announced its announcements at the Kodansha USA panel. Both of their booths are almost merged too, plus, Vertical's releases are found on the Kodansha USA site.

I don't know when it happened, and I can't really find anything about an official announcement, but RightStuf along with Hachette's site list that Yen Press will be releasing Touhou Suzunaan: Forbidden Scrollery starting in November 2017 with the English name of Forbidden Scrollery.

Unannounced licenses are those that we have missed announcing due to not being revealed at an event/convention, but rather on their own websites. Digital releases are noted with an asterisk (*).

@BlindNoldor In terms of language, probably not. This list will only cover English-translated licenses as far as I know. If you happen to be familiar with titles licensed in English outside of English-speaking territories, feel free to contribute to the thread!

@Snow I asked because the Simulcast post have info about other countries/languages, so I was curious if it could be included here to. It was for Spanish releases, I dont know about other English markets aside the US.

Good work Seven Seas!

While I am really keen on reading "Soul Liquid Chambers", "Made in Abyss" & "Clockwork Planet" are tempting as well.
