Lots of shounen ai manga were released by the several German publishers in December. Presents for the numerous yaoi fangirls in Germany? I would think so. Overall the number of manga is surprisingly low, however, some publishers will release their January novelties before Christmas. Therefore the amount of actual December releases will be far more than the average ~50/month.

I know. I know. I’m not really active at the moment. It’s partly because of my university I and partly because I re-discovered my love for Starcraft and Warcraft III, so every free minute I have, I spend on either playing Starcraft or Warcraft III. I’ll try and write all my regular posts, I’ll see if I manage to do so. So here are the releases for November!
Some Germans who also visit other German manga news pages might’ve realized that I sometimes list titles with a different release date than other news sites. The reason is that I probably use different sources. So here are my primary sources for the list: Carlsen: Newsletter, Egmont: Website & newsletter, Heyne: CIL thread, Panini: Release thread, Tokyopop.de: Newsletter.
Also, Heyne Manga’s website has been re-linking to their random-house site for a while now. They also stopped sending newsletters since late July and have been fairly quiet over the last few weeks (6+). They also didn’t answer any question concerning new series/general news on their page etc. I wonder if that has anything to do with this.
It’s been awfully quiet the last few weeks on the German manga news side and I was too lazy to fill that gap with reviews, comments or any other form of posts. This month contains a nice mix of all genre. The seinen genre is well represented with more Eden, another Taniguchi release and one volume of Lone Wolf and Cub.
My exams are finally over, my semester break has started and I’m still a busy bee, before I will leave my university place to settle once again in my hometown’s home base room. There I should have loooots of time to read manga, enjoy manga
draw manga and write manga reviews and news. Let’s see if the German publishers will be able to provide me with sufficient reading material:
Back from the dead! June was full of excitement, sadness, joy and more sadness and of course UEFA Euro 2008! Football is much more important than anything else in the world! Germany played crappy, but still managed to take the 2nd place, not too bad, though I was disappointed by their performance. The final vs. Spain was one of the worst games they played since Joachim Löw took over the team after the World Cup in 2006. Anyway, enough of my non-manga babble, here’s the German release list for July!
