Kodansha Comics announced their fall lineup yesterday, and it includes two venerable manga that were first published by Tokyopop back in the day: Love Hina and Tokyo Mew Mew. Both will be in omnibus editions (Love Hina will be three volumes for $19.99, Tokyo Mew Mew will be two for $14.99) with new translations. Tokyo Mew Mew was a favorite in my house back in the day, although I always thought it was kinda bizarre. It will be interesting to see if it resonates with a new generation of girls. Also in the lineup are two sequels: Shugo Chara-Chan!, a 4-koma comic based on Peach-Pit’s Shugo Chara, and @Full Moon, a sequel to Sanami Matoh’s supernatural boys-love manga Until the Full Moon.
Digital Manga also gets into the game with a new title announcement: Mr. Convenience, a BL title by Nase Yamato.
