Del Rey gets Code: Breaker, Panic X Panic & Pink Innocent Wed, 5 Aug 2009
Del Rey licenses three new manga series: Code: Breaker, Panic X Panic & Pink Innocent.

"Code: Breaker is the second series of Samurai Deeper Kyo's creator Akimine Kamijyo. It's a supernatural horror action manga with the art style and characterization that fans have come to expect from the bestselling manga-ka. The beautiful Sakura Sakurakouji comes across a boy burning someone alive with a blue flame-and that same boy introduces himself as a transfer student in her class the next day. Rei Oogami calls himself a "Code: Breaker," and his mission is to bring criminals to justice and eliminate their lives. Sakura, a tomboy with a strong sense of justice who hides her appearance under a modest exterior, and the mysterious Rei, who possesses supernatural powers, are inexorably drawn to each other, but what role will they play in each other's lives? CODE: BREAKER will debut in December 2010. Del Rey Manga will publish an omnibus collecting the Japanese volumes 35 and 36 of Samurai Deeper Kyo in December of this year.

PANIC X PANIC, a paranormal series by Mika Kawamura, combines comedy, fantastical action, and a budding childhood rivalry. Mitsuki, an only child at a Shinto shrine, grew up across the street from Kakeru, the son of a priest. They never got along growing up, and still don't get along as teenagers. However, a strange encounter with a demon seals their fate forever: the pair discovers they are the descendants of priests who had sealed away disorderly demons. With the demons becoming a problem again, Mitsuki and Kakeru must inherit the mission of their ancestors-and somehow get over their mutual dislike for each other. PANIC X PANIC will be published in March 2010.

Kotori Momoyuki's PINK INNOCENT, a quirky teen comedy, follows the romance behind an unlikely pair. Ditzy Cocona Sakuranomiya, a wealthy 16-year-old used to getting everything that she wants, is completely clueless about how to approach the super-serious Renji, who happens to be more interested in the stock market and his laptop than any girl. PINK INNOCENT will debut in April 2010."
