announced their new titles back in mid-July. I had hoped for other publishers to follow and disclose their new acquisitions and therefore postponed my post. Alas, none of them did. So below you’ll only find‘s short list and don’t expect any surprises. Despite Dr. Joachim Kaps‘ hints for a more diverse range of licenses, the list still is very shoujo-heavy.

Compared to the list of new titles for fall and winter 2008/2009 and spring and summer 2008 this list is very short. Saturated market anyone?

Update: Hot Beast and Hot Dinner are both Josei titles.
