Anne Rice's next novel will be titled Prince Lestat: The Vampire Chronicles. Maybe now's a good time to start reading her books...

Kadokawa, a big-time publisher in Japan, is launching a free manga app later this month. The best part: it isn't just in Japanese - they're also publishing English and Chinese translations of selected works. Good move!

Yukarism blurb:

"Yukari Kobayakawa, an accomplished author at the age of 17, writes with amazingly accurate details about historical Japan. It turns out he has the ability to travel back in time – to his past life as a renowned courtesan in the Edo period! As he goes back and forth between the past and present, he also unravels the karmic relationship he has with his beautiful classmate Mahoro Tachibana… Catch the gorgeously illustrated historical romance from Chika Shiomi, the creator of YURARA and RASETSU (also available from VIZ Media)."

Phantom Thief Jeanne blurb:

"High school student Maron Kusakabe has a secret - she’s Phantom Thief Jeanne. She sneaks into private art collections to steal paintings in which demons reside. Jeanne’s task is to seal the demons before they can devour human hearts. So far she’s been able to evade the police on her midnight outings, but now another thief has come onto the scene – Phantom Thief Sinbad – and he’s trying to take the paintings before she does!"
