Kingdom Hearts manga returns to North America in May, you can pre-order now

When Tokyopop shut down its North American publishing division in 2011, it seemed we would never see stateside releases of the Kingdom Hearts manga books that remained Japan-exclusive. Salvation, thy name is Yen Press-the publisher will reintroduce the Kingdom Hearts manga to North America starting this May, and you can pre-order the volumes on Amazon.
The product pages are slim on details, but here's what we know so far: Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Volumes 1 and 2 serve as omnibus volumes that cover the original, four-book story. Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, originally a two-book release, will be contained in a single, 432-page tome. Meanwhile, Kingdom Hearts II Volumes 1 and 2 represent the first two parts in a six-book series. Likewise, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Volume 1 will serve as our introduction to an eventual five volumes.
Hit up the links below to pre-order each manga through Amazon, and sound off in the comments if you're excited for Kingdom Hearts' return to your local graphic novel section.
