DAMMIT, NO DATE A LIVE YET!!!!!! DAMN DAMN DA- (although, these are awsome too.)MN


Holy crap, Yen Press, you basically just literally own my wallet at this point (and I give it to you gladly 😀 )!! For real, I will forever be grateful to you for licensing the Rokka novels!!! <3 <3 <3 Thank you!


Really hoping that you guy’s licensed Bungou Stray Dogs, Isuca, or Boku dake ga Inai Machi (Erased) cause next to Dark Horse you’re the only other company that gets titles from Young Ace


Will any of these be serials? Murcielago and Smokin’ Parade would be nice to read simultaneously with Japan although I’d be willing to pick up almost all of the manga if they were simultaneously published apart from Big Order. Reindeer Boy would be nice to see as a serialized comic too if I’m being honest.


Hell yeah, Murcielago! The most depraved and over the top orgy of violence and sapphism one is likely to witness!


Very excited for an official Murcielago translation, it’s quickly become my favorite manga.
