Yes, VIZ could announce MAGI!

But in all seriousness, as a nut for fantasy series, i'll probably give this manga a shot, maybe..dunno. defiantly get Familiar of Zero. No interested in the fox girl manga though .

They could've announced the ZnT light novels.

Finally, The Sacred Blacksmith was license-rescued by SSE. Smile

Maybe same thing could happen to other manga left in limbo by TokyoPop.

I couldn't keep interested in the anime, but I would give the light novels a try. The manga? I won't bother.

I'm interested... The anime felt like it should've had more, and looks like the manga isn't even done yet.

Unfortunately Adam Arnold has said that Seven Seas will not be publishing any more light novels. I guess that there is some hope that he will change his mind in the future, but I doubt it.

I will be getting at least the first volume of all three of those manga. I really enjoyed the anime for all of them

Zero LNs would have been infinitely better than the anime, especially that ending.

But whats the deal, I thought Seven Seas licensed basically taboo type works, like BL and stuff like Kodomo no Jikan. These are three fairly normal licenses imo.

Seven Seas is a business. I assume they will license anything that they feel they can make a profit on. If one line doesn't work try something else.

If you looked, you'd see that while Seven Seas did initially license Kodomo no Jikan, they quickly backtracked when they looked deeper into what the material contained. I'm not saying I agree with their decision, but I certainly understand it, seeing as people are hellbent on protecting fictional children. Also, what BL? Have you ever bought a Seven Seas title? If anything they're more known for bringing out yuri titles. And even then, not too many of those because as Alan45 said, they're out to make money, and for the most part yuri titles aren't big sellers.
