After four years Loveless decides to come back to America. I got the volume... I just don't remember what the hell is going on haha.

Isn't Loveless on some sort of hiatus since the creator started another series?

Well, shojo and josei mangas gets worked on slower because they normally do all the work themselves, maybe have one helper. Loveless has 11 volumes so far, and I've looked, she doesn't have any other new series going on.

Kill Me is on hiatus, The Blood Highschool says it's still a working title, and a few discontinued titles. Loveless is the only project she's really working on now.

Yay! Glad to see two of my favorite manga on the list again! I'm so glad Yotsuba has became a regular on the New York times best sellers list, it's my first and all time favorite manga, its sooo cute and funny! I've missed reading new chapters of her, now that book 11 year is out I get to read the new chapters! (My friends will also be glad to see that a new book is out because they love her too!) The only reason why it didn't get number one was because it just so happened to have come out the same week as the Classic Sailor Moon and one of the most popular manga in the US, Naruto, but I'm positive that next vollume she'll be number 1! Very Happy

Yen Press releases tend to come out whenever they want. Sometimes they come out weeks before the dates listed by Amazon/other sites and sometimes a week later. Yen Press' site never lists an exact date of release, only the month and year.

I'm not even going to try reading volume 9 yet for that very reason. I just know I'll be thinking, "what the hell is going on here?". Guess I'll re-read my Tokyopop volumes first. Glad to have volume 9 though.

Is there any big editing to Yen Press's Yotsuba&! releases?

I really do need to get around to checking Yotsuba&! out sometime, since I've heard nothing but great things. I didn't realize it was selling quite this well though but it is a very good surprise.

Thanks for the update. That's a big relief. I got this today and have to go back to remind myself of its story but I think it's worth it.
Not sure yet if I'll re-purchase the other 8 when Viz gets their versions out.

Thankfully this doesn't seem to be another D.N.Angel case. Seriously weighing whether or not I want to sell off my 13 volumes. Rather depressing, so Loveless coming back does my heart good.

I would buy Viz's versions of the older volumes as they come out. People are already saying that Viz already did a much better job with the release then TokyoPop's release. Also, they're in 2-in1 editions, so you get 2 for the price of 1.

Ugh, I REALLY want to read Loveless but it's like no store carries it. So I was surprised to see it in stores about a week ago. And I'm even more surprised to see it rank here.
