With surprising news all around from finally finding out that Viz snapped up the license to Tenjo Tenghe under Dark Horse’s nose, they have now made an announcement that the series will be re-released uncensored and unedited; sticking as close to the original story as much as possible.
The new Tenjo Tenghe will be released in an omnibus-type book of two volumes per release beginning June 21, 2011. The extra cover will be placed inside the volume, in color, as an insert with the series will be rated M for Mature. All in all, the full series will be released in a short 11 volumes compared to the original 22 volume set.
A lot of fans are most likely psyched about the new release and personally, I’m not quite so surprised that Viz picked up the title with it’s following and their own connections to Japanese publishers. Hopefully, Tenjo Tenghe will do well and allow Viz to bring out other worthy mature titles over.
