How did I not guess that they would get this?

And yes, KeroKero Ace is a real Sgt-Frog themed manga magazine.

Holy hell, Seikon no Qwaser? Shocked There's one title guaranteed to be shrink-wrapped. What's next, YomeIro Choice?

Or perhaps Sekirei? (lawlz Why am I only half joking in wishing for that?) Anime hyper

I loved Little Butterfly so I'm eager to check out Croquis. The summary sounds intriguing enough as is.

I really love Kenetsu Satou's artwork, in spite of the raunchy nature of the series in which its employed, so I know in the end I'll be giving Qwaser more than a passing glance. Rolling Eyes

I think I'd be happier about Tokyopop acquisitions if they would release what they already have. Almost a year between Silver Diamond volumes? Extremely extremely annoyed.

Wow. Seikon no Qwaser. That's that really f000ed up one about the Russian 'priest' who gets his powers from breast milk because of an icon of the Virgin Mary breast feeding Jesus. I don't know if I've ever seen a more messed up take of Christianity by a manga. This makes Chrono Crusade look like official Biblical canon. It's totally perverse and a blasphemous insult to my faith.

I'm gonna have to pick it up when it comes out. Hmm.. haven't had any TokyoPop titles in a while anyway.

None of the Tokyopop licenses initially sounded too exciting to me, but after reading this thread, I may consider Seikon no Qwaser whenever it hits.

On that note, it's always good to see some new Blu licenses. After looking up a synopsis for each of these, Croquis really doesn't sound up my alley. It's hard enough to find yaoi where the uke isn't actually a girl with a penis as is, so the idea of him being a straight up transvestite just turns me off completely. I'm not a fan of Hinako Takanaga anyways though, so I probably wouldn't be getting it regardless.

Blood Honey, however, has a vampire. So while the plot sounds very been there done that, I'm just shallow enough to give it a try anyways Razz

Love knot and Cute Demon both sound like pretty generic high school love stories, so I'll probably pass on both of those unless they get pretty universally glowing reviews.

And as for Love Story in the Isolated Island, Duo Brand and an island murder mystery sounds like a heaping pile of win to me. Definitely going to put that on my radar.

Should be some fun stuff. My 'to buy' list loves me so much

I thought the same but not only that, I'm dying to get further volumes of 'Earthian' 5, 'Takumi-kun series' 4+, 'Tea for Two' 3+. Crying or Very sad

I'm very interested in Qwaser Stigmata... depending on how my budget looks in such a long, long time that is. Shouldn't be too difficult.

Well, at least Tea for Two 3 is coming out in December (still quite a wait though). Still, it's so frustrating because on one hand I want titles to get licenses but I also want them to actually be released. What's the point in licensing so many things when you can't even get them out?

That's true but you really can't follow their release dates 'cause eventually, it could've been pushed back again. Sad Just wait and see what's going on later. Rolling Eyes

Nice to TokyoPop (not talking about their BL division) has some titles that show promise and especially with this Kodansha license expiration thing they have had.

Umm, there's only 4 volumes in Earthian (BLU translated the Deluxe re-release).

Looking forward to Blood Honey and Love Story in the Isolated Island Very Happy

Somehow, I would have pictured Blood Honey as a DMP title rather than BLU.
