Over on Twitter, Scott Green triggered a tweet-storm when he pointed to this press release from Viz on new licenses. Fabulous news for Tenjo Tenge fans, particularly those still bitter about CMX’s editing choices, but read deeper into that piece, and you will find the source of my giddy, giddy joy:
LA QUINTA CAMERA • Rated ‘T’ for Teens • VIZ Signature • MSRP: $12.99 US / $14.99 CAN • Available July 19, 2011
A charming suite of linked stories from the acclaimed author of not simple and House of Five Leaves, set in an apartment in Italy. In four of the rooms live four single men with singular personalities. Into this peculiar ménage steps an exchange student, the new tenant of the fifth room. Brought together by chance, friends by choice, they pursue their dreams together as the days drift gently by.
It originally ran in Penguin Shoubou’s Comic Seed! Odd that they didn’t mention it’s also by the creator of Ristorante Paradiso and Gente, what with the “bunch of guys in Italy” thing going on. Still… new Ono!
