April 2017 Manga Releases

By

Spring is finally here! Blooming alongside the cherry blossoms are some great new manga titles (and some pretty awesome novels, too).

Spring is finally here! And with spring comes one of Japan’s most famous images: that of the blooming cherry blossoms. Some sakura trees have been blooming for a while, and others are just starting to greet the spring sunshine. You know what else is blooming? New manga! (That doesn’t really work…) If you live near a botanical garden, see if there’s a cherry blossom festival! Bring along your new manga and comfortably read under the beautiful pink petals. Even if there aren’t any sakura trees where you live, you can always pick up a new manga volume and feel connected to Japan through that. Any excuse to buy more manga or light novels, right?

This month’s release dates are the 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th of April. As usual, you can either click on one of the dates to be taken to that section, do a page search by publisher, or scroll to your heart’s content! Without further ado, here’s our list of the April 2017 manga releases (plus light novels and books)!

  1. Hi, YattaTachi, as always thanks for the hard work! I want to note that you skip some manga that are released this month and you should add them to the post, such as Drawn and Quarterly’s new Kitaro volume, and Udon’s new Persona 4 volume.

    1. Thank you very much! Udon Entertainment’s site hasn’t been updated in a while, and their Facebook page tends to mention their new releases the day they come out, so it’s difficult to incorporate them into the list ahead of time. I’m working on a way to get the information sooner, though! I didn’t know about Drawn and Quarterly, so thank you for mentioning them! I’ll add them to my list of publishers! ^_^

  2. Thanks for making this list. Is there a chance that would also include the digital only releases of manga and light novels from Kodansha and J-Novel Club in the future?

    1. Thank you very much! We’re currently looking into a way to incorporate digital releases, so hang tight for just a little bit longer! ^_^
