Vertical Licenses Three Manga Titles

Vertical, Inc. announced during the company’s Katsucon 2014 panel that it has acquired the license for the following three manga:

  • Ajin: Demi-Human
  • Witch Craft Works
  • The Garden of Words

Ajin: Demi-Human is described as:

17 years ago, immortals first appeared on the battlefields of Africa. Later, rare, unknown new immortal lifeforms began appearing among humans, and they became known as “Ajin” (demi-humans). Just before summer vacation, a Japanese high school student is instantly killed in a traffic accident on his way home from school. However, he is revived, and a price is placed on his head. Thus begins a boy’s life on the run from all of humankind.

Witch Craft Works centers around Honoka Takamiya, a boy whose classmate Ayaka Kagari is talented in sports, excels in classes, and is attractive on top of everything. The “Princess” also happens to be a powerful witch. As Honoka discovers during the “Tower Witches” incident, Ayaka’s purpose in life is to protect Takamiya at all costs.

The Garden of Words follows the story of shoemaker-in-training Takao, who begins sketching shoes in a Japanese-style garden. He meets a mysterious older woman, and the two start meeting and deepening their relationship.

The company is planning to debut all three titles in Fall 2014.
