It's a shame that Stellar Witch LIPS is digital only... maybe it can get a physical release later like A Sign of Affection did?
I really want to read it, but I just prefer collecting physical volumes...

How often are licensed manga volumes published? It surprises me that I see some titles here that received an English edition 2-3 years ago.

Every two to three months usually but it can differ from case to case depending on the backlog and release schedule in Japan.

I hope that Oniichan wa Oshimai! will also get a physical release. But I am glad to see that it finally got licensed in NA.
