Vertical Comics announced during Kodansha Comics’ New York Comic Con panel that it has licensed Bkub Ōkawa’s Pop Team Epic and Yōko Nemu’s The Delinquent Housewife! (Futsutsu na Yome Desu ga!) manga.
The Pop Team Epic manga is scheduled to be released in Fall 2018. The surreal four-panel manga centers around two 14-year-old girls, the short Popuko and the tall Pipimi.
Ōkawa launched the manga on the Manga Life Win website in 2014, and ended it in 2015. Takeshobo released the manga’s first compiled book volume in print in 2015. Ōkawa launched the “second season” in February 2016, and ended it on April 30, 2017. Takeshobo released the second volume on June 7, 2017. The manga will launch its “third season” on October 10, 2017.
Vertical Comics will begin releasing The Delinquent Housewife! in Fall 2018.
Nemu launched the manga in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Spirits magazine in 2015, and Shogakukan published the fourth compiled book volume in January 2017.
