"The North American manga publisher Viz Media announced at its Yaoi-Con panel on Saturday that it will launch its SuBLime boys-love manga imprint with the digital release of Tarako Kotobuki's Love Pistols (Sex Pistols) and Haruka Minami's Danna-sama to Mitsugetsuchū this December.
The worlwide imprint is a partnership with the Japanese companies ANIMATE and Libre Publishing. SuBLime will offer manga digitally on the website SuBLimeManga.com, with a download-to-own option for many titles. The imprint will then offer selected titles in print starting next summer."
Now, since I’m personally not interested in digital copies I was really delighted with prospects there will be few actual paper copies of popular manga. It will be first opportunity to buy some Naono Bohra’s - “Three Wolves Mountain” and I really wanted to have at least one of her mangas, also one of my favorites from Shiuko Kano – “Punch Up”!!!
SuBLime's print lineup will launch with the following titles:
Three Wolves Mountain
By Bohra Naono
By Norikazu Akira
Punch Up Volume 1
By Shiuko Kano
Aitsu no Daihonmei Volume 1
By Suzuki Tanaka
These are the titles we should expect in spring/summer next year!
… if Mayan people are totally in wrong this time… *wink* there is something actually nice waiting for me/us in spring :)
