Head Over Heels Japanese Manga News

Monday, November 10th, 2014

A┬ánice surprise in the mail today! The Japanese publisher of HEAD OVER HEELS has now released the book in a multi-author volume that I think (given my extremely limited Japanese) contains 6 stories in total. At least the numeral 6 shows on the cover, so that’s my best guess. So I received a couple of author copies.

The book was previously released by Ohzora Shuppan as an individual paperback and then in ebook manga editions. Now, the multi-book edition.

This was totally unexpected (as was the royalty cheque that arrived in the mail the other day), so what a fun surprise.

HEAD OVER HEELS appears to be the second book in the volume, if you count from the “back” cover. Shown below are the final pages of my story within the volume, which is on the right. The volume is read “back to front” (to Westerners).


In case you’re interested, here is the single volume edition, which was originally published in 2011 and is still available from Amazon Japan:

You know, I needed a lift-me-up, and this did it!
