                  at #SDCC18, @tokyopop announced new 2-in-1 editions of Aria: The Masterpiece, new edition of Kozue Amano's manga about gondoliers in a futuristic imitation of Venice, Italy. Vol1 starts with stories originally released as Aqua, with a street date of Feb 2018
                  the new editions of Aria will have some full-color pages and "lavish gold foil embellishment" on the covers. It looks like there'll be 7 volumes in all. here's the covers for volumes 2-5
                  also announced at #SDCC18, @TOKYOPOP will be publishing Yuri Bear Storm by Kunihiko Ikuhara (director, Revolutionary Girl Utena) and Akiko Morishima - 1st vol. due in January 2019
                  i didn't make it to the TokyoPop panels at SDCC18 where they made these manga announcements, so what I got is from their PR, which they kindly sent to me.
