I'm pretty happy with this news. Yen Press did the Spiral manga and I'm currently enjoying it. I'll be picking up Soul Eater when it hits the shelves.

I'd say, someone go license the anime for Nabari no Ou and Soul Eater for some yummy FAL points! XD

But yeah, great news, great lineup, can't wait! X3
Quiet, Boursk. If something should get licenced it should be Itazura na Kiss so I get the bonus and you don't. ^^

Actually...Del Rey got Zetsubou, not Yen Press. Sorry about that.

Are these licensed translations then?

If so; awesome.


Yeah, they will be in english.


btw, I noticed a huge leap in release. We get magazine this summer and volumes next year. That's a long wait I'm tempted to just get the magazine.
