Top story of the week: Digital Manga, after months of having it listed as “coming soon,” has formally announced Aoi Hana/Sweet Blue Flowers will be released on their eManga platform.

YNN Corrspondent Niki S. want you to know that Tokyopop has recently started adding its “global manga” titles to Comixology, which includes the by-now out-of-print 12 Days. Excellent news for anyone who missed that book the first time around.

As we look towards the release of the Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san (犬神さんと猫山さん) anime, the third volume of the manga is out next month. Also next month by Kuzushiro-sensei, Heian period gag comic Kimi ni Tamenara Shineru, Volume 4 (姫のためなら死ねる) hits the shelves.

Out from Yuri Hime Comics is another gag 4-koma series, Kimono Nadesico, Volume 3 (きものなでしこ ).

Rakuen Le Paradis, Volume 14 (楽園 Le Paradis ) graced shelves at the end of last month, and I’m sure I mentioned it, but it’s worth a reminder.

I have no doubt that someone out there wants this Japanese Kindle Yuri bondage maid manga Kosoku Maid – Yuri no Saku Choubatsudai (拘束メイド-百合の咲く懲罰台). If you get it, let us know how it is, will ya?

I know *nothing* about Mebae (メバエ), except that Comic Natalie tells us it’s a Yuri anthology slated for an April release.

And the winner for the most ambiguously “good” news this month – webcomic site Champion Taboo, has a comic that stars a Yuri fan called Fragtime, (フラグタイム) Volume 1 of which is available on Japanese Kindle. (Ambiguously good, because anything with “Champion” in the title is not necessarily a good thing.)

It’s been pretty well-covered. but Japanese comic site Comic Walker has opened up for global registration. Some of the manga is English (licensed back from American localizers) and going forward they are planning on translating other, not-previously translated titles. Right now, they have Non Non ByoriFate/kaleid liner Prisma ☆ Illya Drei 3, in English (among about 20 English titles) and the Mouretsu Space Pirate movie manga, Abyss of Hyperspace in Japanese. Registration required and downloading their Publis reader, but totally worth the few moments it takes.

    When I was looking at legit online manga sites, the online reader that I liked best was from eManga … and at the time they didn’t have any manga that I wanted to read with it.

    Now they’ve jumped from the “nah, not even a little interested” column, right over the “kinda interested” column I have several Crunchyroll manga in, to the “must read” column. Great news.

    I’m running into an issue trying to read manga via Kindle, Amazon seems to restrict reading some manga on PC Kindle clients. I can read them on my Samsung G4 android phone but not on my PC with a bigger screen. This is a cookbook for eyestrain.

    • Amazon and some publishers have conflicting communications about allowed devices. I ran into the same issue with Attack on Titan. Amazon say Kodansha limits access…Kodansha says it’s Amazon. So contact the publisher. It may be resolvable.
