Last week, Viz announced they had acquired the license to Kaori Yuki’s gothic shoujo series, Grand Guignol Orchestra. This week, they’re going in an entirely different direction with Cross Game, a a romantic comedy based around life and baseball, by Mitsuru Adachi.
The North American volume 1 of Cross Game will release on October 12th for $19.99 U.S. / $27.00 CAN, and will contain the first three Japanese volumes of the series. Subsequent releases published by Viz will include two Japanese volumes each at $14.99 U.S. / $19.99 CAN.
In case you want to give the series a trial run, Viz have episodes of the anime series streaming for free on their anime website.
