A new YEN PLUS kicks into gear!

This month’s cover is graced by Jem, that handsome devil from The Infernal Devices! In this month’s chapter, things heat up between Jem and Tessa, while the purpose behind Will’s demon hunt is revealed. If you haven’t yet explored the world of the Shadowhunters, be sure to look for The Infernal Devices Vol. 1, in bookstores now!

While you’re there, you can also find the first omnibus of Aron’s Absurd Armada! Four-panel, full-color, and lots of fun! AND the second volume of Soulless: The Manga is also coming to stores this month! You can read the last chapter of volume 2 in this month’s issue of Y+!

The November mag also has exciting new chapters of all your favorites, including the start of a new story in Milkyway Hitchhiking, fresh tragedy for Ethan and Lena in Beautiful Creatures, and a new job (with a new uniform~) for Tsugumi and the girls in Soul Eater Not 19!

      @Allen, I mean what I say :U

      But, there is no dust eating for future mangakas, like myself, now is there? Will if you gonna win, then I look forwarded to working with you. Then we can see each other’s works at the finish line and have a video game match of some kind instead of tea XD


      Soul Eater Rocks! I can NOT wait for the art book and more vol!!!^.^ (I LOOOVE SOUL EEATER)


      Awesome, Oriko Magica and Kazumi Magica!! 😀 I was hoping for those! Also, Doubt! would definitely be a series I’d consider as well. 😀

      And might as well jump on the “wishful thinking” bandwagon. I’d love a translated and published version of Shiki by Fuyumi Ono on my bookshelf (manga and novel). I also hope for a printed version for Another, as I hate reading on a screen.


      I suppose the dust jackets have been dropped for Spice and Wolf staring with Volume VII.

      Why Yen? Granted, the last one did not work too well with Holo suddenly owning both a set of human AND wolf ears, but I’d like the dust jackets continued for all of them for consistency sake as long as they are well done… though I still like the original art best.

      In fact, of all of the volumes, VII was the dust jacket I was actually most-looking forward to seeing.


      Um, I’m sorry for asking so many times, but is there a possibility for you to release Higurashi Kataribanashi-hen?


      A reminder to all of you bringing up licenses, we cannot discuss our intentions of licensing new series. Rest assured, we are aware of the series you bring up, and it’s great to hear what you’d be interested in reading. But until we release an official announcement on something, we can’t discuss what our plans are. We hope you understand!


      It’s ok, I understand ^^
      So just consider publishing:

      Higurashi Kataribanashi-hen
      Higurashi Saikoroshi-hen
      Higurashi Hirukowashi-hen
      Umineko Episode X
      Shinsekai Yori manga
      Madoka Different Story
      Gakuen Nightmare
      Deadman Wonderland


      Cool pickups. I cannot express how impressed I was with the first HOTD Omnibus. Excellent quality. I will definitely pick up the second one and any further HOTD works if the writer and artist ever decide to get off their fannies and quit quibbling.

      Also, looks like you guys stopped doing the “alternate” covers for the Spice and Wolf novels. I didn’t hate the other ones, but it somehow shows that you guys are giving up on trying to reach a “broader” audience by using a RL model for the cover. I’m just hoping you guys publish as many novels as possible.

      Also, I will definitely pick up all the Madoka GNs.


      OMG, AYA was licensed, yayyyyy!
      Now to my life to be complete, you have to license “Karneval” *.* Anime will be airing in April, I would love to be able to buy the manga in english *.*


      Why haven’t you done more TokyoPop recuses?

      I want Silver Diamond finished and The Ice-Cold Demon’s Tale put on the market, in omnibus format. Silver Diamond was TP’s better selling titles.

      Hell, why hasn’t anyone recused Fruit’s Basket (seeing with how popular it is, surprised Viz hasn’t), and any of those series that were 1 volume away from being finished.

      T. Matthews


      TokyoPop is down but not dead, they are still acting like they are going to be publishing more stuff so maybe that’s why more books aren’t coming out?


      When will the Square Enix titles mentioned be available for download through your iPad app? I would really love to get the digital copies of Pandora Hearts.


      Oooh! Milkyway Hitchhiking!! Sirial can do no wrong, to be honest. Is there ever going to be a book for Milkyway Hitchhiking? I’m so bummed that i missed the first chapters ;^; I’d buy like 3 copies if there was a book! <3
