First and foremost, our hearts and thoughts go out to all of you who have been affected in any way by this unprecedented crisis.

Due to the effects of governmental shelter-in-place, business closures, and workforce reductions during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are experiencing significant disruptions all across the book and comics industries. These disruptions have affected the entire supply chain, from printer shutdowns to decreased shipping capacities to the unfortunate closure of so many bookstores, comic shops, and other retailers.

These current logistical barriers have resulted in us taking the difficult decision to postpone the scheduled releases of our May and June titles to later months, in the hopes of getting our books to you as soon as circumstances allow. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these challenging times together.

The revised release dates are currently projected as follow:

(Titles are in alphabetical order)

  • FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers The Art of Reflection -Histories Forsaken- : July 28, 2020 (Print edition only)
  • FINAL FANTASY XV: The Dawn of the Future : July 14, 2020 (The digital edition will be available on the original release date of June 23, 2020.)
  • Hi Score Girl 3: July 28, 2020 (The digital edition will be available on the original release date of June 23, 2020.)
  • Soul Eater: The Perfect Edition 1: July 28, 2020 (Print edition only)
  • Suppose a Kid from the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town 2: Aug 25, 2020 (The digital edition will be available on the original release date of June 23, 2020.)
  • Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina 1: July 14, 2020 (The digital edition will be available on the original release date of May 12, 2020.)

As conditions are still evolving rapidly, we will continue to evaluate the situation on a day-to-day basis. We may need to make further changes to our manga and book release schedule depending on what the future brings over the coming weeks and months. Our priority is to minimize any risks and contribute to the wellbeing of our staff, partners, and, most of all, our fans and readers.
