About This Publisher:

Del Rey Manga is a division of U.S. publishing giant Random House, working in conjunction with Kodansha, a leading Japanese publisher. With a primary focus on shojo and shonen manga titles, Del Rey Manga established itself as the fourth largest publisher of Japanese comics in English in its six years of operation.

In October 2010, Del Rey Manga announced that it would be ceasing its North America manga publishing operations, largely because Kodansha announced their intentions to open their own North American manga publishing division, Kodansha Comics in December 2010. Some Del Rey Manga titles, such as Negima! continued under the Kodansha Comics imprint, while a few, like xxxHolic remained with Del Rey. A few other series were left unfinished, such as Nodame Cantabile, which were not picked up by Kodansha Comics.
