It has been brought to my attention that a lot of you have questions and want answers. To keep it simple, if you have any BURNING QUESTIONS that haven't been answered elsewhere on the forum regarding Juné titles or perhaps publishing questions, this is the place to ask.
Please keep it to questions only, and I will answer them as best as possible, perhaps a few a week or so. Posts that are not questions will be deleted. Try to ask ONE question at a time, give a reasonable time length between each (say 2-4 weeks). This post will constantly be updated with answers to the questions.Please keep licensing requests to the proper thread:
We are trying to keep this thread for very important questions or ones that keep popping up, so should it not belong here we will delete or move it to the proper thread.Regarding Drunken Love/Haruka Minami
: Apparently Drunken Love was prematurely announced, we never got the proper license for this title and don't plan to pursue it for a variety of reasons. As for Haruka Minami, we don't have any plans for any of her other titles although we'll continue to look into it.Where is Ze 6/Deeply Loving a Maniac? & other distribution issues
Both books are now available at Amazon, and should also be available at other retail stores. Due to a variety of reasons, it wasn't previously available -- which normally doesn't happen, but on the rare occasion it unfortunately does. We do our best to not HAVE that happen (where a book doesn't get picked up by a distributor), but things unfortunately come up. While we do push sales of our books at Akadot, that doesn't mean we don't want our books to be widely available - we DO. All of our copies for Ze 6 though are sold out at Akadot. We'll try to give warning if a book won't be available, but we can't promise anything.Why won't you be publishing any of Youka Nitta's titles?
: While we have looked into licensing her titles, we cannot reveal why we will not be pursuing her titles due to sensitive confidential reasons.Will we ever see more of DokiDoki's "Otodama"?
: Yes, we are in the process of finalizing the licenses. Licensing terms & release has not been finzalized/determined yet.Do we have any control over Amazon's release dates on pre-orders, if not, do we know why Amazon shuffles their dates?
First of all, we do not control Amazon’s release dates or Amazon’s display information.
Amazon have a system. They place an advance order of X copies. They sell those on pre-order. When they get to the last handful, they send in another stock pre-order, and the expected ship date for those is LATER, as they won't have the second stock shipment til then. Then they do this again..and again. So if you see a pushed back date, it is because AMAZON is not guaranteeing that the orders placed NOW will have stock delivered before then. If it is, they get the books sooner. It's why it says BY such a date.Will we be seeing more DokiDoki titles like Alice the 101st?
This goes for all DokiDoki titles, we are working on getting the licenses but this will take some time. Thank you for your patience!Will the rest of Ai no Kusabi or Only the Ring Finger Knows be published?
Yes, we're working on it. The last chapter of "Black Sun by OGASAWARA Uki" has been published in the latest Hertz magazine and the Japanese book should be published soon this year. Will 801 media (if this imprint is even still around) license and publish this volume 2?
If and when BLACK SUN becomes available in tankoubon, we intend to pursue.Is SHOCKING PINK actually an 801 title?
: No, it's not an 801 Media title and is a mistake in Amazon.Will any of the DMG titles go to print?
