This would be a good time for Viz to expand into novels.

Well, they did do the Battle Royale one, right? I'd love to see Death Note novelizations over here. *_*

They've been expanding into novels. Battle Royale, three Fullmetal Alchemist ones to date, Kamikaze Girls, Socrates in Love, and they're planning on releasing Rurouni Kenshin and Naruto novels. I imagine we'll get the Death Note novel. I don't know about the xxxHolic novel though...

I'm an airhead. Somehow I managed to forget all about those. -_-;

Damn, why couldn't Viz have licensed .hack instead of...Toilet Paper?

Since the xxxHolic novel is also under Kodansha's auspices, I imagine it'd be up to Del Rey/Random House to decide if they want to bring that over or not.
