Yen Press Announces Five New Manga Licenses

Yen Press has announced that the company has acquired the distribution license for the following manga:

  • Strike the Blood
  • Black Bullet
  • Puella Magi Homura Tamura
  • Puella Magi Madoka Magica Homura’s Revenge
  • Rust Blaster

Strike the Blood revolves around Kojō Akatsuki, a boy deemed the “fourth progenitor” — the world’s most powerful vampire, once thought to only exist in legend and lore. In the Itogamijima special zone for demons, a girl named Yukina Hirameki is entrusted with watching over the vampire and if needed, hunting him down.

The story of Black Bullet is described as:

No longer a boy yet not quite a man, Rentaro has already led a tough life. It’s the year 2031 and 10 years have passed since his parents – along with most of mankind – were killed by an alien parasitical virus known as Gastrea. As a second year student at Magata High School, Rentaro, along with his childhood friends, Kisara Tendo and Enju Ahari, have formed the Tendo Civil Security to tirelessly fight against Gastrea. Born as one of the “Cursed Children” infected with the virus, giving her superhuman abilities and the power to control the virus, as well, Enju is Rentaro’s Model Rabbit Initiator. Operating as a pair with Enju as Initiator, and Rentaro as Promoter, serving to lead the cursed children, they must together work as a team to dismantle evil brought on by Gastrea.

Puella Magi Homura Tamura is a four-panel fantasy slice-of-life spin-off of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica anime and manga.

In Puella Magi Madoka Magica Homura’s Revenge, both Madoka and Homura go back in time instead of just Homura.

Rust Blaster follows a human boy who enrolls in a vampire school and meets a vampire who is not very vampire-like.
