Err...they said the Death Note BD's would be coming around Winter

Must say I was pretty surprised/pleased with their announcements. Looking forward to the One-Punch Man anime and glad we finally have the LoGH novels here

EDIT: Also Viz announced the K: Missing Kings movie and the second season

I am all over those LoGH novels. Spring 2016 isn't nearly soon enough, damn it.

Great to get more of the DB color manga, too. Wish they would release the earlier arcs, too, though, the pre-Z material.

Haikasoru has the first three volumes scheduled, starting with volume one in spring 2016, and will release more depending on the success of the first three.

Always a catch. Understandable but still incredibly disappointing. Makes me more reluctant to buy the first 3 if I know it may not be complete. That's why I like Yen Press, they never drop series whereas Viz do, still hurting from Strawberry 100%, Gintama and Reborn. The first of those 3 was so, so near all volumes released as well!

If they can license and attempt to release those novels though whats the deal with no Medaka Box manga? Never gonna happen is it?

Definitely interested in picking up the LoGH novels, if only to see how different they are from the show.

Wow, Legend of the Galactic Heroes? Licensed over here? Okay, it's the original novels that inspired the OVAs rather than the anime itself, but still... I always figured any sort of release for that franchise would be a long shot.

Fans better be buying if they want more. Considering how highly regarded the franchise is, the licensors may have high expectations to be reached in order to allow more to be released.

I'll throw my hat in and pre-order the first few volumes. I've enjoyed what little I've seen of the anime.

I mean I CAN watch it. It just won't be up to date.

Uh-oh.

This is going to be another Yukikaze situation, isn't it? They'll only release those three and then drop it despite telling fans they're thinking about release the other ones.

Viz getting the One Punch Man anime sucks too. Glad Daisuki's an option. At least they have their own dedicated player and don't lead people on.

Disappointing that Dragon Ball full colour was their only manga announcement but at least my wallet is safe I guess. Maybe we'll get something at SDCC?

Couldn't have said it better myself. I'm honestly shocked (and estatic) that we're finally getting something from LoGH licensed over here. It's not the anime, but the original novels is still pretty good. In any case, I'm also throwing in a pre-order to show my support.

Been a while since Viz got a new anime license.
