UDON Entertainment Sells Out Kill la Kill and Steins;Gate


Readers are pretty keen on superpowered school uniforms and microwave-enabled time travel. So keen, in fact, that UDON Entertainment is going back to the print as two of their most recent publications have proved wildly popular in Kill la Kill Vol. 1 and Steins;Gate Vol. 1. The two books have completely sold through their initial print runs, with fans snapping them up in droves.

Kill la Kill Vol. 1 and Steins;Gate Vol. 1 are already tough to find in stock at many physical and online retailers, speaking to the resoundingly strong sales performance of both books. In response to voracious fan demand, UDON is already moving forward with second print runs for both titles, with these reprints scheduled to be available at retail by March 2016. In the meantime, Steins;Gate Vol. 2 is available now in finer comic book stores and book retailers everywhere, as well as various online retailers. Steins;Gate Vol. 3 is planned for release in April 2016, with Kill la Kill Vol. 2 scheduled for release just prior to that, in March 2016.

Full press release below.
