I'm sooooo excited for Bakuman! Very Happy It's a great series, but I wasn't sure if Viz would consider it.

wow, I wanted to read Toriko really badly... but I didn't think we'd be getting it this fast.

Hopefully they sell it once every 3 months so it won't overlap the japanese releases.

Toriko is perhaps the single greatest Shonen Jump title currently running. It's about running around and using your bare hands to tear the heads off of giant beasts that are 600 feet tall and have a billion teeth. Then eating them. And having the food be so delicious you shed MANLY TEARS. I wish nothing more than for it to become a massive smash hit runaway success here in the US. Which, given my track record for predictions based on my personal tastes, means it probably won't. Sad Prove me wrong, people! That way I will never have to mutter to myself "ONE man[ga]! ALONE. BETRAYED by the fandom it loves, NOW their last hope in its hour of need to keep the classic shonen spirit alive in the misleadingly-titled Shonen Jump" as I'm ordering it online.

Take note: Viz is going to run over Del Rey if DR doesn't step it up in a few. Bakuman is definitely buy worthy, but we'll see how Toriko works out.

The licensing of Bakuman wasn't so much an if, but more of a when.

Bakuman's eventual license was a lock, given the folks involved. Looking forward to checking it out once released.

Hooray for Bakuman getting an American release! I really like this series and I'm sure Viz will do a good job releasing it. More power to Viz, keep getting awesome titles and I'll buy them all.

Bakuman is a fun little series, so that's good... But does anyone else want to know why Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro isn't here yet?

Really, now that Kuroshitsuji has been licensed, Neuro (from Viz) and Liar Game (preferably from Del Rey) are the only two manga that I really want to see an English release for. At least, those are the only two that immediately come to mind.

My sentiments exactly, while I am ecsatatic about Bakuman's release, I would love to see the titles you have listed (alongside Embalming -the Another Tale of Frankenstein-, Shiki, and 7 Seeds, and Tokyo Crazy Paradise) to be licensed. Also, out of curiousity, why have To-LOVE-ru and MxO not been licensed? Question
