Seven Seas licenses Senran Kagura, loses Blood Alone

Senran Kagura

Senran Kagura

Seven Seas confirmed a new license, Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows, which follows the adventures of a quintet of teenage girls in a secret ninja high school.

Still catching up with manga news… Lissa Pattillo has a quick roundup in which she notes that Seven Seas will not license future volumes of Blood Alone, as the title has shifted to a new publisher, Kodansha, in Japan. Kodansha, of course, has their own American arm, Kodansha comics, although they do license to other publishers as well (and they are co-owners of Vertical).

The Manga Bookshelf bloggers discuss their Pick of the Week.

Reviews: Adam Stephanides posts some quick reviews of untranslated manga at Completely Futile. Ash Brown looks at a week’s worth of reading at Experiments in Manga. And it’s time for more Bookshelf Briefs at Manga Bookshelf.
