They also have Sensitive Pornograph coming out in September. They told me at Comic-con & I've already pre-ordered it from Rightstuf.
But my teen will be very happy about this.

The manga is coming from Tokyo Pop. I stopped by the Tokyo Pop booth to ask if they'll have an e-mail newsletter for their yaoi line & I just happened to speak with one of the gals heading up the Blu line. They also have the Gravitation novel(not the Remix Doujinshi). She told me to keep an eye on their website & we should have news this fall(I asked if it would be next spring & she said they're planning on the fall) There's apparently some problems convincing the top this type of stuff will sell. I guess there's a huge issue right now about some of the bookstores not selling the yaoi titles because the manga line is seen as being for teens & these are more adult(also got this same info from CPM pres who was at the CPM booth). The bookstores are willing to sell it as gay porn, but don't see an audience for it in the romace aisle where it technically belongs & want it out of the manga aisle. I think Wwaldens is still onboard with it, but one of the others (B Dalton? Barnes & Noble?) is close to dropping the shrink-wrapped stuff because the kids unwrap it. I seem to recall CMX commenting their way around this is they're asking their mature line be placed in the sci-fi area. I went looking for Sword of the Dark Ones yesterday at Waldens & even the clerk, who showed it in stock, couldn't find it, but I didn't remember about the sci-fi section bit until I got home so I need to go back & check if it's there.
Maybe we can bug MediaBlasters about Loveless. They are aware this sells. When I stopped by their booth to see if there was anything, I actually had everything they had to offer. I told them I pre-buy it all(they thanked me) & they told me Level C manga vol 3 is at the printers right now & they were putting Sensitive Pornograph out in September.

Wow! That's awesome! Sukisyo was pretty good, i liked it but i thought it was too short but i'm definitely buying this sereis.


I'm still waiting for LOVELESS to come over though.

I'm really happy that this is only going to be 3 volumes and that it is coming out so soon (only have to wait till October!) Media Blasters seems to be having a pretty quick turnaround with a lot of their more recent licenses (like Genshiken, Otogi Zoshi, and now Sukisho), which is great Anime smile

And I think there's definitely hope for Loveless now!
