Updated the post, thanks @Ren-chan.

Looks like Kodansha Comics is also releasing print versions of 100-man no Inochi no Ue ni Ore wa Tatteiru and Edens Zero, which are currently available digitally by the same publisher.

Oh how I wonder if their dub will sound as awkward as the one they did for Haikyuu.

Btw, some of those that were not in the DB are web manga, but they were published in a print book by Kadokawa, such as this Yurigurashi one, so does that make them eligible for inclusion in the db?

@Ren-chan - They should be, but I don't moderate the database so it's best to ask a Manga DB mod. We usually have a lot of titles in the queue waiting to be approved, so their respective entries could just be pending approval.

Finally some great literature, :D
I'm glad that somebody finally licensed Torture Princess: Fremd Torturchen, since I've been eagerly waiting for somebody to license it for a really long time now, the light novel especially, however its nice to see that we got the manga too.
I'm really looking forward to getting them, both the LN and manga.

Also it seems like the first volume of the Light novel will be releasing on the 21st of May in 2019,(source:http://www.b2c.hachettebookgroup.com/titles/none/torture-princess-fremd-torturchen-vol-1-light-novel/9781975304690/?yen)
while I don't see on their site info about the manga it seems like Yen Press said that the manga will be a 3-in-1 omnibus(source: Yen Press panel livestream).


I also made a discord server for those interested in this series:
