The manga versions of Atsushi Ohkubo's Soul Eater, Yuhki Kamatani's Nabari no Ō, Shinobu Ohtaka's Sumomomo Momomo, Masahiro Totsuka's Bamboo Blade and Seventh Expansion's Higurashi - When They Cry (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni) have all been acquired for American distribution by Yen Press. The publisher made the announcements during its Saturday afternoon panel at New York Comic Con 2008. Not coincidentally, each title has a related anime tie-in that was made in the last three years. All five will initially run in the Yen Plus anthology magazine, the first issue of which will be sold starting on July 29. Standard volumes of all five will go on sale in the first part of the next year. -Anime News Network

460 pages each issue. $8.99 per issue, or $49.97 for a 12-month subscription.
o_o CHEEAAAPP.

Yen Press is officially my #1 favorite American manga company.
It doesn't matter if my parents object, I'm subscribing to Yen Plus, NO MATTER WHAT.

This is something i found:

Yuurisan-subs has finally recieved that C&D notice that Funimation has been threatening to send out for a while, and they have dropped Nabari for good. It seems as though Rumi subs still haven't gotten thier C&D, but at this point, it appears inevitable. It goes without saying that for me, and all the other Nabari fans who can't understand Japanese, this is very, very depressing. T_T

EDIT: Rumi has officially dropped Nabari, too.

I think every fansubber for nabari has gotten it by now. I have to watch raws now, but you can find the translations of the episodes somewhere on a livejournal, just too lazy to get the link.

and haha I love YenPress. Its reeal cheap and all worth it. It has great mangas too.
but Idk why i find it weird that they keep calling the shinrabansho the secret art all the time.
I think it doesn't fit in the bubbles. xD
and already buying the magazines<3
