Kaiten Books Fall 2022 Update

Torrance, CA - Friday, October 14, 2022:

With the changing of the seasons upon us, it’s time for another update from us at Kaiten Books! Let’s cut to the chase and see what’s in the pipeline as the year starts to wind down:

First and foremost, we have a brand-new license to announce! Follow the misadventures of Rize Babalon as he bluffs his way into becoming a bona-fide baron in The Bottom-Tier Baron’s Accidental Rise to the Top Vol. 1 (manga) coming out digital-first on November 4th, 2022.

But that’s not all! Print editions of The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting Vol. 4 will be available just in time for the holidays on December 2nd, 2022, with Loner Life in Another World Vol. 6 (manga) joining shortly after on December 9th, 2022. Pre-orders can be made through RightStuf, Book Depository, Amazon, and more, with links to each storefront up on our website.

As a general announcement, we also wanted to let everyone know that physicals for Gacha Girls Corps and other series are in the works, and we will provide more info when we can.

Also, some of you who wanted to get their hands on physicals of The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting may have noticed that volume 1 has been a bit hard to get a hold of as of late, but rest assured there’s another reprint in the works that should hit our distributor in the coming months!

As always, we want to thank everyone for their support as we continue on our journey. We look forward to keep bringing you more of the best Japan has to offer, and hope everyone continues to stay healthy and take care of themselves as we head toward the end of the year!

Hey there, it's the Kaiten Books team once more, with a big reminder for all the fans of The Yakuza's Guide to Babysitting. As of last week, the anime adaptation of the series has begun airing! The first episode has already aired, with the second coming later this week, so be sure to tune in.

If you're looking for a place to watch the series with English subtitles, Crunchyroll should have you covered. Their simulcasts are on Thursdays at 8:30 AM PDT!

While we're at it, just another little reminder that the 3rd volume of the series will be having its print release in around a month from now, on August 16th, 2022. Go and pre-order if you're interested!
