i wish i could go but i live in Canada >_<
i hope one year you guys will come to anime north!


I really, really wish there was more information about the Accel World Light Novel release date.


Hello Yen Press!
Can you listen to these few requests?
1.Tokyo Ghoul
2.No Game no Life (novel)
And I know many other people would be happy about them too.


Hope all goes well.

While I’m here: any plans to release the Spice and Wolf novels on Amazon Kindle? Please?

Richard J.

@ Gogetaex: Accel World light novel is shipping from Right Stuf already. I got my copy a few days ago.


I am so happy about the Certain Magical Index, and SAO licensing :). I would also like to suggest a few series:
1.No Game No Life,
2.Part Time Overlord (Hataraku Maou-Sama)
3. My Teenage Romcom SNAFU
All three series seem to have a following here in the states =)


Oh Right. Some Suggestions :
-Kyoukai No Kanata.
-Shuuen No Shiori.
-RDG : Red Data Girl.
-Boukyaku No Haou Rolan.


For LN suggestions, I’d TOTALLY buy:
-Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria by Eiji Mikage and Tetsuo
-Gekkou by Natsuki Mamiya and Shiromiso
-Black Bullet by Shiden Kanzaki and Saki Ukai

For manga:
-Qualia the Purple by Tsunashima Shirou (OMG please, instant pre-order)

Of course, I’m sure you’d want to wait and see how well your recent licenses do before picking up more stuff. Other than that, hope for more manga like Black God on iBooks(especially for those living in the Caribbean, Latin, and South America). You guys are seriously turning out to be my favorite US publisher right now!


I would be super happy if you guys at Yen Press could pick up the manga for Kimi to Boku and The Daily Lives of Highschool Boys.
Thanks <3


I would also like to suggest some series:

My Teenage Romantic Comedy SNAFU
Log Horizon
Hataraku Maou-Sama/The Devil is a Part-Timer
Mahou Sensou/Magical Warfare

I would be thrilled if any of these series were announced. Thanks Yen Press for all of your hard work!


I forgot to mention that for manga, I would also like to suggest:

-Silver Spoon/Gin no Saji
-One Week Friends/Isshuukan Friends
-The World Only God Knows

I don’t read as much manga, but these are a couple that I would like to see get a release.


Any chance of Watamote getting released on iBooks for Latin American readers btw?


Suggestions for future pickups!
Light novels:
– No Game No Life
– Log Horizon
– Baccano! & Durarara!!
– Black Bullet
– My Teenage Romantic Comedy SNAFU
– Shuuen no Shiori & Mikagura School Suite (unlikely, but hey, there’s a chance)
– Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
– The World God Only Knows
– Horimiya
Because why not.


Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is totally hilarious and fuuny! hope you will pick it up


Please license Secret by Yoshiki Tonogai! I love Doubt and Judge!


@Kait – We already picked SECRET up! We’ve been simulpubbing the chapters with the Japanese chapters! The complete Volume 1 comes out in Jan 2015!


Can’t wait till your next upcoming license announcement! Ever since that one tweet, I’ve been checking this site everyday in hopes that it’s already been posted.


Might be time to update your release schedule, there is a lot of releases missing from it such as highschool dxd vol 2 and another


Yes Yes .. Pleaseeeeeeeee Consider : Shuuen No Shiori & Mikagura School Suit.


Don’t know how often you get this, but I suggest:

Eureka Seven

It’s relatively short, at 6 volumes, and it was previously published by Bandai, who has ceased releasing manga, thus making Eureka Seven out of print and ridiculously pricey.


Please consider licencing the Mahouka (Irregular at Magic High School) and Durarara!! LNs. >_<


I only have one suggestion but first I shall state reasons why you would benefit from licensing it:

1. The current publishers of this manga in English have shut down
2. This manga was only available in Australia and NZ so USA & UK markets will be a great fresh audience
3. Not all of the volumes online have been scanlated which will encourage more fans to actually purchase volumes
4. Despite all this, this manga is actually pretty popular
5. The art is amazing, similar to Pandora Hearts and slightly Black Butler which are already popular as well so you already have a great target market
6. There’s already an anime so that could also convince new audiences to purchase them
7. Because some of the volumes have already been translated, it won’t require as much work to publish the first few volumes
8. There is significant demand for this manga to be licensed by you already in previous comments

This manga is called KARNEVAL – Touya Mikanagi


Knowing you’ve got a strong relationship with Square Enix I’d Highly recommend “Dimension W” for your Sci-fi fans.


You guys licensed Karneval. /saw it on ANN.
/I was tempted at one point to get the Chuang Yi version (though the ended up closing, so I’m kind of glad I didn’t XD.)

Now if only you guys would get Ouroboros and Bitter Virgin and I’d be in bliss XD.


Please, I have a suggestion license Grisaia no Kajitsu Sanctuary Fellows and Grisaia no Kajitsu L’Oiseau bleu. Manga adaptations of a popular visual novel, Grisaia no Kajitsu.


The anime Free! if very popular right now (2nd season is airing), so I think you should look into the light novel that it’s based on: High Speed – and maybe pick it up.


I would like to see Muv Luv Alternative Total Eclipse light novel be localize


I have read sword art online LN and liked it quite a lot

I also have a few suggestions of light novels I’d like to read:
Shakugan no shana
Kamisama no memo-chou
Dantalian no shoka
Black bullet
Kamisama no iani Nichiyoubi/Sunday without god
Hataraku Maou-sama/the devil is a part-timer


So happy you have Karneval. Is there any chance you could pick up Orenchi no Furo Jijou as well? Please and Thank You 🙂


>Hataraku Maou-Sama/The Devil is a Part-Timer

Yessss, I would love to see this licensed. It’s such a refreshingly unique series. And hillarious, too.


Um um I don’t remember whether I mentioned it before, but please license Tokyo Ghoul manga! >w<


Any thoughts on the manwha The Breaker and it’s sequel New Waves? Especially if you release it on iBooks for Latin American countries please.


Just checking, but the is Puella Magi Orika Magica: Extra Story you’ve licensed just the one-shot follow up volume or will you be getting New Contract as well?


Manga License Suggestion: Lucky Star
When Bandai stopped publishing manga, Lucky Star fans got screwed over, so maybe you could bail us out?
Its also quite similar to licenses you already have like Haruhi and K-on


You’ve done the fantastic job of licensing Index here. Thank you for that.

Some other Dengeki related suggestions:
-Heavy Object
-Strike the Blood

Thank you for also localizing Hataraku Mao-sama, Log Horizon, and No Game No Life.


Ah thanks for getting ngnl novel <3 And Pandora novels waaaah you're just awesome and I love you! ^__^

Next time maybe license Tokyo Ghoul? Also Madoka Rebellion Story manga? But right now I'm just so so happy gwah



a few requests!

baccano! light novels
gekkan shoujo nozaki-kun
hirunaka no ryuusei
tokyo ghoul
mushishi (out of print/previous licensor no longer in business, ridiculously expensive, but a fantastic series)

was overjoyed to see your tweet about the pandora hearts light novel 😀 can’t wait to get my hands on it!


@drones VizMedia licensed Lucky Star but it’s in their digital-only line (VizSelect)


I believe Viz owns Lucky Star now. They have it digitally anyway.


Thank you SOOOOOO MUCH for picking up NGNL, Log Horizon, The Devil is a Part-Timer, and Pandora Heart Caucus Race! <3 <3 <3 I am super excited to start collecting them!!! <3 <3 <3 Keep up the good work!

@brandon @sevi
thanks! actually didn’t notice that vizmedia picked it up. would be nice to get physcical releases, but digital is better than nothing


OMG!!! Just found out about all of your new licenses, and I am even more amazed at how awesome you guys are (and this only cements your status as my favorite English publisher even more, as well <3 )!!

SUPER look forward to the [i]Log Horizon[/i] and [i]The Devil is a Part-Timer![/i] novels, and– even more so!– the [i]Karneval[/i] manga and the [i]Pandora Hearts[/i] "Caucus Race" novels (YEEEEEEEEESSSSS!!! <3 😀 )



Like many others have already suggested:

“Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun” by Izumi Tsubaki.

It’s friggin’ hilarious XD (both the manga and the anime.)

There’s also Ilegenes (and it’s sequel) .>…


one series i’d love to see is boy’s note/shounen note by yuhki kamatani. since you released her more well known series, nabari no ou, i think you’d do a great job of shounen note too. it’s already complete, the last chapter came out earlier this year i believe, with eight volumes. just something to consider!


Ah man, I had a feeling my previous comment got cut off for some reason :/. /it did.
Well, I also mentioned “American Ghost Jack” a Korean manhwa, the author/artist put up an English version on tapastic, but I’m not exactly sure if it can be considered “licensed in English”. Might I add that the art is absolutely fabulous and the story is rather intriguing?
