NYCC '12: Kodansha rolls out Sankarea, Vinland Saga


Fairy Tail to resume publishing in 2013, catch up to Japanese releases

Next up in today's slew of NYCC news: Kodansha is bringing over Sankarea, No. 6, Vinland Saga, and Tokyo Mew Mew a la Mode. With Dallas Middaugh on board (sans cowboy hat), Kodansha Comics is rolling out some nicer titles, and is working on bringing back a number of items from Tokyopop and Del Rey Manga.

Sankarea and No. 6 will see releases in June of 2013, while Vinland Saga will hit in October and Tokyo Mew Mew will show up in November of that year.

Another big announcement for them was the simultaneous release of a Sailor Moon artbook in 2013 to celebrate the series' 20th anniversary. A bit before then, we'll see a Sailor Moon box set on November 20th, collecting the first six volumes.

They'll also be picking up Fairy Tail at volume 24 starting in March 2013, with monthly book releases and twice-monthly digital releases in order to catch up to the Japanese editions.

All in all, they're some busy beavers at Kodansha Comics.
