This had been a thread I had been meaning to add and finally remembered to do it.

This can be an ongoing thread of new title announcements by publishers. It might be handy to keep as an archive, and everyone is welcome to add to this thread!

How timely, with futekiya's announcement of 5 new licenses from a new publisher for them:

The Perfect Son (ri-ru)

Tyrant Boyfriend~6 UNDER GROUND~ (Ukya Iwashimizu)

Love DO!! (Samba Maekawa)

Now That's a Teacher! (Uni Shindo)

For the Next Act... (Makoto Inagaki)

 

Bit curious, except for The Perfect Son, all of these are older titles - nothing newer than 2011.

The Perfect Son (ri-ru)

What's interesting is that Yaoi Cat had announced they were also doing The Perfect Son (as Perfect Son) but there hasn't been any news about it since the first announcement.

The tweet says @futuumi is the translator, this might be the same @futuumi here in Ouendan Blue?

Part of the reason I set it up was because I saw the new announcement and figured it might be a good time! (Thanks for adding it in!)

SuBLime got Dousei Yankee Akamatsu Seven (SHOOWA, Hiromasa Okushima) as Bad Boys, Happy Home, which I know at least a few people were wishing for.

 

(Also they changed their website to Viz's style, I'm so disconcerted now. How do I find things???)

Got an email from Futekiya saying they got An Unmapped Country, Somewhere In This World as well as The Uninvited Cat And His Fickle Master for September. Not sure if I've seen this on Renta or June?

I'm guessing they'll have Julian titles for now since Medibang already translated them. I'm kinda worried though since their calendar's pretty empty already unless they have some onBLUE/Bloom titles ready.

Looks like the former is on Renta, the latter on June, and both on Manga Club.

I'm not too worried about Futekiya's calendar just yet. They often add titles without much advance notice and it's probably easier to schedule those Julian titles for a monthly newsletter announcement. Plus there's also those Media Soft titles, which were announced before most of the Shodensha & Home-sha titles. They may be added first.

Media Soft, as in Charles Comics? Guess I missed the announcement for those...

Yup, Charles Comics. Those were the FujoCon announcements, though they haven't made a blog post about them yet, I don't think, so maybe not added so soon as all that.

Here I was tagging them and suggesting Draw Two's Why I Like My Uncle as a possible geicomi to pick up. Guess there will be higher chances now.

Futekiya used to just add things to the schedule the day they came out. With covid and the current animaru issue, some sort of delay wouldn't surprise me (titles still coming out, just not the amount people are now accustomed to)

Print publishers are really leaning into the soft BL lately. Also thank you for posting!!

Also new licenses from Tokyopop

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-09-02/tokyopop-licenses-this-wonderful-season-with-you-katakoi-lamp-manga/.163595

 

Title: This Wonderful Season With You (Subarashii Kisetsu Yasashi Kimi to, pictured right)
Creator: Atsuko Yusen
Debut Date: February 2
Summary: Enoki is practically the poster-boy for what a typical nerd looks like: short and slight, complete with big round glasses and social awkwardness. His main hobby is playing video games, and he's used to not having many friends at school. Then, he meets Shirataki, a former member of the baseball club and his exact opposite; tall, muscular and sporty. Despite their many differences, the spark of friendship between the two boys begins to grow into something more...

Title: Katakoi Lamp
Creator: Azumi Kyohei
Debut Date: March 2
Summary: Kazuto Muronoi runs a cute little coffee shop, where many people enjoy doing some work or writing papers for school. Among his coffee shop's regulars is a college student named Jun, who often studies there. It was love at first sight for Kazuto! Will Kazuto be able to find the courage to confess his crush before Jun graduates college and stops frequenting the shop? And to make matters even more complicated... it seems Jun has his sights set on another worker at the café!

Tokyopop also licensed Ana C. Sánchez's Alter Ego comic for its International Women of Manga and Love x Love imprints, and the first volume will launch on February 9.

Oh, there’s a lot of good stuff in here, but I think I’m most excited about NenNen-Saisai.

I’m also hoping we get some update on when the other things they’ve announce will be released. There’s a lot of stuff I’m looking forward to (and a lot of their recent releases haven’t really grabbed me so far)
