News – Squid Girl! Dragon Ball Super toys!! Suzuka manga!!!

It’s already Tuesday and once again I am here with some more news!

Squid Girl

Announced today, North American licenser Sentai Filmworks have obtained the license to the anime series Squid Girl. This means they have the rights to release the anime episodes from seasons 1 and 2, and OVA for home DVDs and Digital outlets like iTunes.

Anime Synopsis:

The cutest little tentacle-haired invader from the sea, Squid Girl, has come to subdue humanity! Unfortunately, she’s in hot water with the Aizawa siblings after a demonstration of her squid powers destroys their restaurant, the Lemon Beach House. Now, she’s forced to work as a waitress for them until she pays off her damages. Between her aquatic puns, bickering with the Aizawa sisters, tiffs with customers, and the many misadventures that come with seaside life, Squid Girl has her hands, and her tentacles, full!

Dragon Ball Super

Announced by Toei and Bandai, the companies revealed today the a line of new Dragon Ball Super toys. What makes this news interesting is that these toys will be release for the US in summer 2017! The action figures will be as tall as either 3.5-inch, 6.5-inch and 7-inch. There will also have collectible sets and even “role-play items” Deluxe Scouters and Deluxe Kamehameha Shooter.

Suzuka

Announced today, English manga publisher Kodansha (well-known for doing Attack on Titan and A Silent Voice) rescued another manga series called Suzuka. There are total of 18 volumes of the series but recently, the manga in US had only 15 volumes and then discontinued; they were owned by Del Rey. Kodansha will be releasing the manga as well releasing it in digital books like Kindle and Kubo. The first five manga will be released on October 11.

Synopsis:

SHE’S SO COOL Yamato is ready for a fresh start. So when his aunt invites him to stay rent-free in her big-city boarding house in hustling, bustling Tokyo, Yamato jumps at the chance. There’s just one teensy-weensy catch: It’s an all-girl housing complex and spa! Things get even more nerve-racking when Yamato meets his neighbor Suzuka, a beautiful track-and-field star. She’s not just the cutest girl Yamato’s ever met, she’s also the coolest, the smartest, and the most intimidating. Can an ordinary guy like Yamato ever hope to win over a girl like Suzuka?

Be cautious though, Crunchyroll mentioned digital releases. I am not sure if they will only release the manga as digital first or both.

  1. Always good when a manga gets rescued. Come on, Kodansha, pick up more of Del Rey’s catalog!! (And by “pick up”, I mean “finish them”!!)

    Personally, I’m excited about Fukumenkei Noise/Anonymous Noise being licensed by Viz. Hopefully someone will stream the upcoming anime.

    • I totally agree. It’s always good news to hear manga getting saved. I wish more companies would do the same. “I am looking at you Viz! Bring us back Gintama and Hitman Reborn!!”
      That’s pretty awesome news. This is amazing news for the fans.
