Can Udon be trusted with the manga? They're doing a pretty godawful job with Silent Moebius.

While they're at it, what ever happened to the first Valkyria Chronicles artbook they were going to release in English? I don't even know if it's out - all I know is that I ordered it in February from Amazon and I've gotten mail after mail this year ping-ponging the release date around, to where I'm not sure when it IS supposed to come out anymore. Then I thought I saw it being sold at Rightstuf.com.

At this point I have no idea anymore. I just want the artbook I ordered before my order laps the one-year mark.

I'm enjoying the SF/DS manga, and the Mega Man Mega Mix is fun.
And, the American SF comics are amazing, so I think they do a decent job.

Not one for Art books, but will definitely be picking up the Sengoku Basara manga...Put Ya Guns On!!

I'd say not really after they pretty much dropped all of their manhwa titles without a word.
Not that I cared about a few of them, but stopping Magical JxR with only one volume left was a pretty low blow.

No word on a new Robot release? Bother. Guess I'm probably the only one buying them. Time to start importing the rest from Japan.

Sadly, Udon said they had a licensing issue with Robot. They are not putting any more out. There was a least two people buying the series, you and I. I got the impression from the reply from Udon that Robot did sell well enough to continue. Maybe it didn't, never know.

That said. I already voiced my unhappiness over the phantom release dates. I still do not know if Amazon just picked a date, or Udon keeps on pushing the date back. I heard a rumor that the books are pressed overseas, and the time frame is vague on when they are finished.

I got the Tony's Art book from Udon. I have been happy with the finished book. I am waiting for Ar Tonelico which has been pre-ordered from the beginning of the year. I is "supposed" to "finally" come out in early August.

I would look forward to the new books if it weren't for the fact that they are so damn inconsistent on their release schedule. Maybe when they can show a history of consistent releases will I get more enthused about their releases. Right now, I'm still waiting on the rest of Silent Mobius.
