Del Rey: The Family You've Always Wanted
Written By: Alexiel



Del Rey Panel

Location: Anime NEXT Panel Room #1 - Saturday 15:00-16:00


Sitting in on the Del Rey panel was like being a houseguest in a family's home, taken from an anime, as they chatted casually to you about their many adopted children. Leading this panel were Editor-in-Chief, Betsy Mitchell, Editor, Tricia Narwani, and Toshifumi Yoshida & Trish Ledoux who translate and adapt the popular series Negima. As a team, they established an outspoken and jocular atmosphere from the moment they entered the panel room. Seamlessly juggling professionalism with free-spirited attitudes, there was hardly a time when the Del Rey team did not have the attendees laughing. Open to both personal and business-oriented inquisitions, the enthusiastic aura that the group emitted clearly stemmed from their passion for the manga industry and to withhold as little as possible from devoted and potential readers.

Before the panel kicked off, Del Rey fans were already verbally pining for the stacks of manga upon the panel table. Stolen cookies always taste sweeter, but these houseguests knew better. Betsy Mitchell, as the mother figure of the group, assured their emphatic guests that they would share the wealth. Sure enough, the stacks of Negima, School Rumble, and Kurogane (all being Vol. 1) were distributed by Toshifuma Yoshida, the fun-loving older brother who always had a humorous retort on his tongue. After introductions had passed, Tricia Narwani, the reserved older sister, decided to start with a bang by announcing the November manga licensing of Densha Otoko (Train Man). After the applause died down, Betsy & Tricia then took turns gushing over their current and newly adopted children.

Basilisk is Del Rey's first Mature-rated manga, set at nine volumes. Due to the mature content, Del Rey will be shrink-wrapping thems, and pricing them at $13.95. Other titles include Pichi Pichi Pitch, Kurogane, Gundam Seed Destiny, Q-ko-chan, another seemingly quirky series created by FLCL manga-ka Hajime Ueda, and Air Gear, created by Tenjou Tenge manga-ka, Oh Great!, of which Betsy Michell personally recommended readers to check out. She also announced that Vol. 1 of Q-ko-chan would be released 7/25 & Vol. 2 on 9/26. Suzuka, Del Rey's other Mature-rated manga, will be released in August, shrink-wrapped, for $13.95.

Toshifumi Yoshida and Trish Ledoux proceeded to pick up on another significant topic of conversation that their houseguests would certainly appreciate: Del Rey's #2 best-selling series, Mahou Sensei Negima. While delving into their trials of translating such a heavily involved manga, they also made time to slip in some personal addenums regarding their deep appreciation for manga-ka Ken Akamatsu's work. Toshifumi Yoshida whips up one jest after another as he shares how much he enjoys working on this story and with Akamatsu-san, to revealing his favorite Negima characters (sorry, but I didn't catch the names fast enough...). Trish Ledoux points out her escapades of good fortune that went into obtaining the "most outspoken translator of Latin & Greek" to ensure that Negi's spells & Akamatsu-san's references are right on point.

Lastly, the panel ended with an open Q&A session that enabled inquisitors to obtain a copy of Basilisk Vol. 1. Nothing like seeing off your houseguests with a special thank-you gift. I, unfortunately, conceived my question too little too late. The attendees had remained attentive through the entire panel; they were knowledgable of Del Rey & the manga industry, but also expected to leave with more than what they came with. The time spent with a part of the Del Rey family was a treat, indeed.

Additional trivia about Del Rey:

  • Their four popular titles, in order of consumer popularity, are: Tsubasa, ReserVoir Chronicle, Negima, XXXHolic, and The Wallflower


  • Vol. 1 of Negima has sold over 100,000 copies since its debut.


  • Tsubasa has sold over 715,000 copies.


  • According to Betsy Mitchell, the shortest span it has taken for Del Rey to put a title out, from the time rights are obtained to the time of publishing is 3-6 months. The longest is 8-12 months.


  • They make an effort to put out 8-9 series a year, while "focusing on publishing and being cautious in doing so."


  • 'We don't believe the market is saturated. That's why we put out 8-9 titles a year! It's nothing as it was in 2003, but it hasn't flattened out either.' - Betsy Mitchell


  • Looking at OEL Manga projects of different kinds is on their agenda.


  • Due to there being a myriad of manga released in Japan, 'we're trying to bring out as much manga without anyone freaking out... We are trying to protect the whole field...and aiming to see what appeals to teens and young adults.' - Betsy Mitchell


  • More information about the tri-publisher release of Densha Otoko has been released in an article in Publisher's Weekly. Thanks to MangaBlog for the link.

    I do prefer del rey.....they keep the Japanese style of the manga with the formating and words and sfx.....but Western way of publishing by favouring good quality over mass production......

    ...still, wish it was a little cheaper to buy their manga~(^^)''

    #2: I have heard of Peacemaker Kurogane, but they aren't related in the slightest.

    Also, this editorial has been updated with linkage so you can be lazy and not hop around the net for info.
