Yotsuba’s Back?

Posted by Niki K. F. on September 20, 2009

Well this is news to me.  I was browsing the Yen Press website when I saw that they’ve apparently picked up Yotsuba&! after it went into American publisher limbo.  They’ve re-released volumes 1-4 (and 5 and 6), with 7 on the way in December.
