Japanator writes: "Heaven smiles upon us! Kiyohiko Azuma just tweeted that the checks for Yotsuba& Vol. 12 have been completed and it will be released March 9 in Japan. Given the release schedule for North America so far, one might assume that its English release will be next May, but who really knows.
The Japanese release of Vol. 11 was November 26, 2011, so it has been a good long while since a new Yotsuba& volume has been put into my hands. To say I am excited is an understatement. This went directly into my calendar. Only the most important things go directly into my calendar."
