Again not a UK based story, but it’s interesting nevertheless. It’s been noticed by a few bloggers as of late that Amazon.com have updated their TOKYOPOP listings for Summer 2009, and a few of these updates seem to be licenses that haven’t been formally announced. This isn’t unusual for Amazon, as they updated about The Legend of Zelda Manga from Viz Kids before Viz made the announcement.
KimiKiss (Vol. 01)
Takeru: Opera Susanoh Sword of the Devil (Vol. 01)
Animal Academy: Hakobune Hakusho
Future Diary: Mirai Nikki (Vol. 01)
Esuno Sakae (?)
Game X Rush (Vol. 01)
Gorgeous Carat L’Esperanza
Hoshi no Witch: The Witch in the Artemis (Vol. 01)
Hara Yui (?)
Uwasa no Futari (BLU)
Whilst this is an Amazon listing, they’re normally fairly accurate in terms of content and not actual release dates. So I’d say it’s indicative of what’s to come in the States. Although what happens over there tends to follow in the UK, so I’d expect to see a few of those our way next year too.
