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:

icetrail

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!

shuishu

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.
