New volumes from two of Kodansha Comics' all-time hits, Fairy Tail by Hiro Mashima (check out his recently posted interview and sketch video here) and Tsubasa by CLAMP. Also Volume 11 from relative newbie, but no less a sensation, Noragami: Stray God by Adachitoka.

Say I Love You 12 coverLDK 3 cover9781632362759

As many a mangaphile already knows, Kodansha Comics publishes some of the best shojo comics around. Say I Love You. by Kanae Hazuki has been a recent breakout hit, but LDK by Ayu Watanabe, now just on its third volume, has gotten off to a great start. And Fairy Tail fans should definitely check out the fun new shojo spinoff, Fairy Tail Blue Mistral by Hiro Mashima and Rui Watanabe.

Devil Survivor 3 coverPersona Q P3 1 coverInuyashiki 3 cover

Devil Survivorthe manga by Satoru Matsuba based on Atlus' video game, has been making waves, and now we have another Atlus game tie-in debuting this week, with Volume 1 of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Side: P3 by mangaka So Tobita. Check out the free preview of all of Chapter 1 here.

Meanwhile, on a somewhat different wavelength, what's more fun than a new volume of Inuyashiki by Hiroya Oku—maybe the most shocking new manga launched since (Oku's own) Gantz? Check out our mind-bending interview with the very-intense and iconoclastic mangakacoming soon!

Space Brothers 18coppelionvolume15Air Gear 6 cover

Finally, major new strides in digital: new volumes of astronaut-drama Space Brothers and post-apocalyptic actioner COPPELION arrive on digital shelves this week.

But our big announcement this week is finally bringing all available volumes of Air Gear out digitally in one fell swoop—that's single Volumes 18 through 33 and 6 omnibus volumes comprising the beginning of the series—including the new and final omnibus volume, Volume 6! More info on the Air Gear digital bomb here.

At our panel Saturday (8/29) afternoon, we did a live translation and lettering of one of our upcoming series! It was a great chance for everybody to see behind-the-scenes of manga publishing. We also made the following new release announcements:


Fairy Tail: Ice Trail is a spinoff by Yuusuke Shirato of Hiro Mashima’s perennial hit series about an irrepressible wizard guild, which has been adapted into a long-running, popular anime. The new spinoff depicts fan-favorite character Gray Fullbuster’s journey from losing his teacher to becoming a member of the Fairy Tail guild. Fairy Tail Ice Trail, titled Tale of Fairy Tail Ice Trail in Japan, will debut during the 2015 holiday season!


Noragami: Stray Stories, known as Noragami: Shuishu in Japan, is a collection of more lighthearted short stories from Noragami creator Adachitoka, featuring all the characters fans have come to love and root for. Stray Stories hits stores November 2015, just as the second season of the hit anime will be in full swing!

Due out in spring 2016, Fairy Tail: Master’s Edition 2 will collect volumes six through ten of the hit manga in an enormous 7-by-10.5-inch size on high-quality paper, in the vein of the Attack on Titan: Colossal Edition. The first Master’s Edition is coming to stores this October, and both the first and second Master’s Editions will retail for $39.99.
