New In Stores:











Be still our Pandora Hearts!

The word is out — and Amazon Canada and Lissa over at Kuriousity beat us to the punch! D’OH!

Ah well, you’d have read about it in the May issue of YEN PLUS (hitting bookstores right around now!) in JuYoun’s Editor’s Letter anyway. Yes, I can indeed confirm with great pride and enthusiasm that PANDORA HEARTS has been “rescued” by Yen Press. Still more, we have Jun Mochizuki’s previous title, CRIMSON SHELL, added to our list as well. Now what you won’t have heard elsewhere — unless you already snagged your copy of the magazine and studiously read JuYoun’s letter in which case more power to you *gasp* — is that you won’t have to wait until December to read PANDORA HEARTS. Nossir! That’s because starting with the June issue, we’re going to begin serializing the series in the pages of our beloved YEN PLUS!We are super-excited to be adding PANDORA HEARTS to the mix of the magazine, and we sincerely hope you’ll be similarly enthused!

That’s it for now except to say that if you haven’t already stopped by our EXTRAS tab on the site be sure you do to get your latest dose of the funny from our webcomic preview of this fall’s TOXIC PLANET. It may not be manga, but it is pure goodness. New strips every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so enjoy!

  2. My copy of the May issue arrived today. After lunch, I read the editor’s letter and immediately ran to the net to start spreading the word about Pandora Hearts. I had heard through about the probable license through the scoop. But I never expected to be able to start reading PH so soon. I’m estatic! Thank you so very much!

    I’m just double checking here, but you guys will be publishing Pandora Hearts in the magazine from the beginning, right? I know it’s a stupid question, but it just occured to me, “Oh my gord! What if they decided not to re-do the chapters that are already published in English!? I haven’t read this before!”

  10. Thank you to everyone that puts together the Yen Plus magazine!!!! I can finally read Soul Eater!!

  11. This is WONDERFUL. I was beginning to give up hopes of Pandora Hearts ever coming out in English. You guys are great! ;u;

  12. I know this isn’t related to the blog post, but I don’t know where else to put this…

    I bought Yen Press’s version of the first Haruhi novel and the translation is great and I love it. Please, please, please translate the other 9 novels…

  15. Hey, you guys are excellent. I love what you’ve done with your serialisations. :D

    That being said, I’d love to see Chi’s Sweet Home by Konami Kanata picked up some day. I know it’d probably tough to do because some other companies are closer to the publishers of Chi, but it’d be so wonderful, because it’s possibly my all-time favourite series, and it has a small cult following.

  16. Thank you very much for picking up Pandora Hearts! It was horrifying when Broccoli Books suddenly had to go out of business.

  17. Omg!!!! thank you so much for saving the english release of Pandora Hearts!!!! this is like my favorite manga

  18. Yay! I’m so glad you guys picked up Pandora Hearts! :D You’re awesome ^^

  19. Omg thank you so much, I love you Yen press ;333 Pandora Hearts is my favorite manga ever can’t wait to read in the mag and later purchase them ^^

  20. Can you also rescue Nui! and Koi Cupid? xD They’re both by manga-ka who’ve proven they can sell in the US… I’ve bought all of +Anima and Tokyo Mew Mew.

  21. Thank you for “rescuing” Pandora Hearts! I feared ADV have left it on the drawing board and let it rot to die. I don’t know if I should regret getting their volume 1. Looking forward to buying it under your name.

    I love you guys even more now. Moon Boy, Nabari No Ou, and Pandora Hearts. Joy… <3

  22. *correction to last post: I don’t know if I should regret not getting their volume 1.

  23. Can you also confirm the Darker Than Black & Bunny Drop (Usagi Drop)licenses. They have just appeared on amazon.co.uk.

  24. YAY!!!
