I'v also been hearing rumors from friends that Tokyopop licensed Shonan Junai Gumi, the 31 volume prequal of G.T.O.

Anyone here know that to be true or false?

Yep, it's true. They announced it at Comic-con along with some shoujo title that's name I can't remember. Unfortunately, there's been no mention of Bad Company though....

Actually, Bad Company is part of Shonan Junai Gumi, from what I know.

It was originally a "Flashback" sort of storyline (Much like the flashback story in Tenjho Tenge).

Bad Company was then later republished as a stand alone story, aswell.

I'm glad they liscensed SJG, I have been wanting to read it FOREVER.

Onizuka is an excellent character.

I am very happy about this, then. If true.

More Mitsukazu Mihara manga?! #@%& yeah! I hope they plan on bringing over that lovely artbook of hers too.

Mitsukazu Mihara = worthy of worshiping for lovely gothy artstyle and great EGL fashions.

I'm just happy that RightStuf is showing them to have licensed Rozen Maiden. That was one I was hoping for .

Oh so that's what she does. I do like the gothic art I see in a alot of manhwa, so I hope an artbook does come out. Five titles at once though, wow.

I hope SJG is completely uncensored, it can be pretty raunchy Laughing

I don't really think Tokyopop has a history at all of censoring the inner contents of titles, unlike some other companies.
