SDCC '12: Yen Press nabs Welcome to the Erotic Bookstore!

While SDCC is over and people are focused on The Dark Knight Rises, there are still some bits of license news to catch up on. Notably, Yen Press announced a number of titles.

I can't really tell you how Welcome to the Erotic Bookstore is going to do, but the title alone already makes me want it. Watanabe Pon's story is about a woman who works at a bookstore, and the owner decides to open an adult toy section in the back of the shop. According to Yen, the title is more slice of life than salacious account, so don't get your hopes up too much.

Also worth noting: Erotic Bookstore will be Yen's first digital-only release. They must have seen enough success on the Yen Press app to warrant this, but it's still a big step for the company.

The other Japanese licenses Yen Press announced were Another by Yukito Ayatsuji and Btooom! by Junya Inoue. Btooom! is an easy one: a boy gets trapped on a desert island and is forced into a real-life version of his favorite videogame. Action and mayhem ensues. Another is a bit more interesting, especially since Yen licensed both the novels and the manga. Another is a murder-mystery title that'll be a digital-only release for the book, while the manga will be collected into an omnibus edition.
