Dark Horse Comics recently issued a press, posted at AnimeNewsNetwork.com, announcing they will be working on volumes 11 and 12 of Eden: It’s an Endless World! manga. I’ve personally been following this series since I bought the first issue, out of curiousity, last year. It’s a very “different” type of manga from what I’ve read so far.
The reason for this announcement by the publisher is that readers of this series were concerned that Dark Horse will abandon this title due to disappointing sales. It is a legitimate concern because companies are in the business of making money, and Eden is a money loser for Dark Horse. Eden is an adult manga with graphic violence and sexual scenes, which means a normal brick-and-mortar store like Barnes & Nobles wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole. But it’s developed a nice niche, with a lot of passionate fans.
I find this announcing reassuring since it affirms Dark Horse Comics’ committment to Eden through at least volume 12.
