CHILDREN OF THE SEA, LICENSED BY VIZ MEDIA!
Great news for fans of Daisuke Igarashi's... according to SimonSays, Viz Media have are releasing the first volume of Children of the Sea in June next year! If anything, this'll be a great step for the English-language Seinen market. Whether this'll gain an audience outside of Igarashi's relatively small circle of fans is yet unknown, but at least its his most accessible work to date that they've licensed (rather than Witches or Hanashippanashi, which are brilliant as well)...
Also, this would make it the second legally-translated English work of his; Fanfare released a short story of his in the outstanding anthology Japan - As Viewed By 17 Creators (info here on that)
For now, enjoy this lovely watercolour volume cover from the Japanese editions!
