Viz’s Shojo Beat announced today on twitter that they are going to publish a rescue of Hiro Fujiwara’s Maid-Sama! series starting in November 2015. The 16 volume series was originally published by Tokyopop but was left unfinished at 8 volumes. Viz will publish the series as 2-in-1 volumes, for a total of eight volumes. It will also be available digitally.
This is one series I’m so glad to see get a reprint. It definitely deserved one. If you’re interested, I did a review of Maid-Sama three years ago.
Also being published next September will be Maki Minami’s newest series Komomo Confiserie. Shojo Beat editor Nancy Thistlethwaite summarizes the series as follows: As a little girl, Komomo Ninomiya delighted in picking on Natsu Azumi, the son of her family’s pastry chef. Ten years later, when the family fortune is lost and she has no place to live, Komomo encounters Natsu again in her hour of need. Now that Natsu is a master pastry chef in his own right, he’ll help Komomo—but only if she works for him at his new confiserie!
This is a series I’m really looking forward to!! I have enjoyed Maki Minami’s other works, and the premise of this series sounds so entertaining. I can’t wait to start seeing this on shelves!
