    Default Yen Press to Resume Publication of KINGDOM HEARTS Manga!

    Announced today at their panel at Sakura-Con in Seattle, Washington, Yen Press graced the KINGDOM HEARTS community with some fantastic news: that they'd be resuming the publication of Shiro Amano's beloved manga adaptation of the series!

    Those of you who are familiar with it may remember that Tokyopop had originally taken the Kingdom Hearts manga under its wing with the release of the first volume on October 11, 2005. They released all four volumes of the original KINGDOM HEARTS, both of CHAIN OF MEMORIES and the first two volumes of KINGDOM HEARTS II until 2008, when they abruptly ceased publication.

    Instead of picking up where they left off, Yen Press revealed that they would be starting over anew. The release of the two volumes of KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX in May 2014 2013, with CHAIN OF MEMORIES following the next month as one volume in June 2014 2013. They've also revealed that they have the rights to both KINGDOM HEARTS II and 358/2 Days, and will release the first volume of 358/2 Days in November 2013, the first release of the series's manga adaptation under their supervision.

    Update (4-1-2013): It appears that the publishing dates for KINGDOM HEARTS and CHAIN OF MEMORIES were reported incorrectly by Anime News Network. The transcript of the Yen Press panel at Sakura-Con 2013 shows that the two KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX volumes will release May 2013 and CHAIN OF MEMORIES will follow June 2013!

    Following CHAIN OF MEMORIES will be the KINGDOM HEARTS II manga, as well as the KINGDOM HEARTS Artbook which contains illustrations by manga artist Shiro Amano. All of this will lead in to the release of 358/2 Days in November. Thanks to forum member lys for the tip! 

    Update 2 (4-5-2013): Shiro Amano: The Artwork of KINGDOM HEARTS will be released October 29th for $25 USD.

    This is great news! I'm only missing CoM Part 2, so this should be my chance to pick it up.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS! I wanted them to pick it up since forever! Yen Press is my favorite manga publisher. They can be pretty expensive but now I can rebuy KH and CoM as the omnibus (I have them all stored away for safekeeping) and THEY ARE STARING DAYS IN NOVEMBER AHHHHHHH *CRYING*

    Holy crap, certainly wasn't expecting this at all! I'm very glad though, I'd given up hope of ever seeing another volume of the manga being brought stateside!

    365/2? xD (don't worry ANN also typed it wrong in their article)

    Well, since they are staring fresh they might also update the translations so it def won't hurt to pick it up

    ;A; I've been waiting forever for this to happen! Now I can get back to adding the manga to my bookshelves!
    If they could pick up the novels at some point, I will explode with happiness. But I'll take what I can get now :3

    There is no word on it. You can probably import them from North America if somebody like Manga Entertainment UK or other publishers in Europe don't pick it up as well.

    I'm curious as to why they are starting with Days? I cannot wait but I kind of wish they did KH2 Volume 3 first since that is where Tokyopop left off. Either way, GO POINTER SISTERS!!!



    Okay, back on topic, the CoM manga are going to be the exact same one that Tokyopop released, right? I'll probably rebuy them to have the set from Yen Press but I cannot wait ^_^

    Now I'm curious if they or anyone else would ever publish the novels stateside???

    Because they said they are staring fresh, but know people have already probably read KH, CoM, and the piece of KH2. Days is the newest work so it is easier to start from there, finish it, and hopefully by time they get Days, KH, and CoM out KH2 will be 100% done in Japan. They will probably start KH2 in 2014 so...yeah it's a very logical setup.

    It should be assumed that they plan to retranslate so while they might be the same it might be a bit different.

    I've had the eight American volumes sitting on my shelf for God knows how long.

    Finally​ I can hope for a complete set.

    I have all the KH1 volumes and both CoM. None of them are in great condition though, so I'll probably pick all of these up (hopefully they're not too expensive though).

    Wonder why they are waiting so long to release KH1 and CoM. I mean, why Days first? Oh well, still cool to see these are coming stateside.

    Now if some company decides to pick up the novels....
