I guess that means that, since they already announced that OVA episodes would be released up to Volume 18 of To Love-Ru, that'll also end up being the last volume for the series. We can probably assume that those OVA episodes will cover the ending as well, but I guess we'll see.

I'm just surprised Viz hasn't announced a stateside release for To Love-Ru yet.

Not To-LOVE-Ru, not every black cat person has made a cameo in it yet

so this mean black cat part 2 may be happening because To-LOVE-Ru is ending?

Was/Will Freesia be made into a live-action film? I read that it was/will be, on Wikipedia, but the information given is not necessarily always accurate. Cool I was unaware of the fact that there was an anime adaptation of Noramimi. Perhaps I should check it out sometime... are the episodes short (3-5 minutes) or full length (19-25 minutes)? Also, hope these series are licensed in English in the near future as I have been curious about each of them for some time. Though my interest with To-Love-Ru is waning. Does the manga adaptation of To-Love-Ru have the level of fanservice the anime version has?

from the few episodes of the anime for TLR and the OVA episodes

the manga has a little less fanservice and it isn't as bad as the anime was with it. The anime went off in to filler land half the time from what I know

To Love-Ru ending? Well, I couldn't care less or more.

The author did a splendid job elonging the manga with useless fillers and throwing girls everywhere and here to the main character. The manga was like Black Cat with gratuitious panty and near-naked body shots, minus the action and a deep storyline.

I wonder what the next manga will be... It sure won't be disappointing, to say the least.

Speaking of disappointment: Nobuhiro Watsuki!
What the hell! Get on with the flow on the generation! Go moe! Or an action title again... minus the wacky sci-fi element.

Viz isn't gonna touch this title. They censor Naruto for crying out loud...

TokyoPop essentially rewrote the actual Battle Vixens script from what I hear. All manga and anime series must come to end (Kochikame, anyone?).

I am surprised To Love-Ru lasted as long as it did, but the ending is apparantly very sudden and rushed, and there are rumours surrounding the situation. Well... I hope Yabuki is okay, and that if he makes a next series, it'll be... better. I enjoyed Black Cat, even if it wasn't exactly an outstanding title...

But he's always had whacky sci-fi or fantasy elements! In Kenshin, too. Don't tell me the 10 meter tall guy was realistic, or that a guy's blood can actually boil while he's still happily fighting, etc. The complaint that Kenshin was "realistic" seems to come from people with selective memories.
And... Embalming is as moe as Watsuki has ever been, if you ask me.

For the lovers of To LOve-Ru, here's good news: Someday, the creator will probably make another series that could get equal appreciation.

ac: Ichigo 100% and Rosario+Vampire got released "unmolested". I have confidence in To Love-Ru getting the same treatment. BC's popular enough to justify an announcement in the near future, too.
