For Immediate Release: DMP Presents Hideyuki Kikuchi and Saiko Takaki at Anime Expo 2008

Gardena, CA, June 30, 2008 - The year is 12,090 A.D., and what little is left of humanity has finally crawled out from the ashes of war and destruction. From the darkness of fallout, mutants and a race of vampires known as the Nobility have spawned. They rule the weak with no remorse. Once bitten by a Nobility, one is cursed to become a member of the undead. Villagers cower in fear, hoping and praying for a savior to rid them of their undying nightmare. All they have to battle this danger is a different kind danger — a Vampire Hunter.

Digital Manga Publishing, one of the most innovative manga publishers is proud to present Hideyuki Kikuchi and Saiko Takaki as our industry guests for Anime Expo. Kikuchi-sensei's credits are long and wide including: A Wind Named Amnesia, Wicked City and Demon Beast Shinjuku. Saiko Takaki, illustrator, was hand picked by Kikuchi himself to bring his most famous character to life in DMP's manga adaptation.

Hero Heel, volume 2
Story and art by Makoto Tateno
Published by Juné, imprint of Digital Manga, Inc.
ISBN-10: 1569708363
ISBN-13: 9781569708361

Review by Jilly Gee

The second of what I believe is a three volume series about deliciously handsome actors for a children's superhero show, Hero Heel, volume 2 ups the tension by bringing in an old flame and revealing a new one. Not being able to forget his night of sex with Sawada, Minami starts out in this graphic novel pining way for him. He determines to stop, though, when Sawada tells him in the bluntest of ways that he just doesn't like him. Minami's co-star, Katagiri, takes this chance and says the words anyone so vulnerable would grasp at after being told he was not liked: I want you. Thus starts their purely sexual relationship, regularly meeting up after work at Hotel Destiny. [more]

Hate to Love You
Story and Art: Makoto Tateno
Published by Deux Press
ISBN-10: 1934496014
ISBN-13: 978-1934496015

Review by Kris

Review originally appeared at Manic About Manga at Check it out!

I was introduced to Makoto Tateno-sama through reading Yellow, another of her series. Initially I didn't know whether or not I liked her art style. It was different from what I was used to. Once I finished the first volume of Yellow I fell in love. Hate to Love You was the second work of her's that I read. I was intrigued because on the back it said that it is a yaoi version of Romeo and Juliet (Romeo and Romeo?). Since I love Shakespeare I couldn't pass on it.

Masaya Konoe and Yuma Kazuki are the sons of two rival real estate company presidents. They were raised to hate one another, since they are eventually going to take over their fathers companies. Even though they act as though they hate each other, there seems to be something more to their relationship. They used to play with another child in an adjoining estate: Akiko Tojoin. It seems that Konoe might have a little bit of a crush on Akiko. It is expected that Konoe and Kazuki are supposed to compete in every aspect of life and for some reason Kazuki is always the one ahead. [more]

Real Love
Story and Art: Mitsuki Oda
Published by Luv Luv Press
ISBN-10: 1934496146
ISBN-13: 978-1934496145

Review by Kris

Real Love by Mitsuki Oda is a release from Luv Luv Press. Luv Luv specializes in josei manga, erotic manga featuring heterosexual couples that is aimed at women. Real Love features three stories that focus on two separate couples.

The title story "Real Love" and the stories "Baby" and Love Star" are an interesting mix. [more]
