DRAGON HEAD? One of the 10 most scariest manga in Japan history. Most of the others are shojo mangas.

And for the people that doesn't know, "The World Exists for Me (Sekai no S&M)", do not confuse that with the TV's definetion of S&M.

First off... I've never heard it referred to as Sekai no S&M. It's "S&M no Sekai," as the cover reads.

Secondly, Dragon Head is frightening, but it's extremely good.

I read the first two chapters of Juror 13 on Takuhai Online. It's pretty good.

I'm just overjoyed for Tsukuyomi Moon Phase. I was hoping someone would get it.

This might increase the odds that some one picks up the series....

Oh God YES! Please someone license the series! Crying or Very sad

Tsukuyomi ~ Moon Phase is definetely one of the best gothic lolita that came out around last year (and not to mention there were significant changes made in the DVDs from the broadcast version).

Also, there's a Girls BRAVO manga!?!

How do they jiggle on paper?

Didn't they announce Rozen Maiden a few weeks back? If so, they are going after all of my favorite series.

TP, I'm sorry I cheated on you. Del-Rey was just so pretty and they had new CLAMP... Sob. sob. I'll never stray again.

Dragon Head is not really frightening, it's more of creepy feeling. Minetaro Mochizuki's other work, the one about a school was sent to the future, that one is frightening. I love both manga, because they shown the true human emotion and nature during the time of emergency.

Some people freaked out and ran away, some start to eat others, but some people stand by their friends. Those are awsome.

The only other manga that I have read that can be compared with those two is Battle Royale. Again, true human nature is shown, separating out the people who are nice to you on surface, and the people who would give you a hand in time of need.

I think he/she was talking about the anime. Has that been licensed now? I didn't see anything on the main page.

Those are actually from Blu, which Tokyopop says they are only distributing.

Yea, I'm talking about the TV series. It seems like my previous post didn't even sound right. Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop

Great to see someone picked up Dragon's Head. Hopefully it'll lead to more of Minetaro Mochizuki's stuff being picked up.

Drifting Classroom, right? Yeah, I'd love to see them bring that one over as well. It reminded me somewhat of BR because of the themes you mentioned above (lets just hope that the similarities end there and that IF they get that title, it will be denied the 'honor' of a thorough dialogue rewrite ^^;; ).
