Broccoli Books Acquires Galaxy Angel II and Kon Kon Kokon

Los Angeles, CA (July 10, 2006) - Broccoli Books has announced the acquisition of two manga titles, Galaxy Angel II and Kon Kon Kokon at Anime Expo 2006.

Galaxy Angel II is the third installment in the popular Galaxy Angel series, focusing on a new group of girls known as the Lune Angel Troupe. One of the girls, Apricot Sakuraba, is determined to find other "gate keepers" to free her older sister Milfuelle from the doomed fate. The original Galaxy Angel cast of the now disbanded Moon Angel Troupe also makes an appearance in the Galaxy Angel II manga series. Galaxy Angel II is illustrated by Kanan, and the story is written by BROCCOLI. Galaxy Angel II is slated to be released in Spring 2007.

Kon Kon Kokon is a romantic comedy about fox girl Kokon, who came to Tokyo to repay her thanks to Ren. Ren is a country bumpkin who is trying to hide the fact that he is a Japanese demon otaku. Kon Kon Kokon is the newest series by Koge-Donbo, the creator of Di Gi Charat and manga artist of Pita-Ten. Kon Kon Kokon will be released in the United States in Spring 2007.

Managing Editor Shizuki Yamashita comments, "We are pleased to bring more Galaxy Angel and Koge-Donbo goodness to the United States. I believe both old fans of the Galaxy Angel series and new fans that are going to start reading with Galaxy Angel II can enjoy the newest installment of the Galaxy Angel universe. And for Kon Kon Kokon, Koge-Donbo herself mentioned that it is similar to Pita-Ten, so those who liked Pita-Ten
will surely enjoy Kokon and her adventures."
