It's intensely disappointing that production is slowing down (given that it wasn't exactly exploding onto shelves on a monthly basis) but as long as they keep putting it out there I'll keep buying it. At this point I guess the hope is just that it will stay alive 'til completion or until I have a need to learn to read Japanese and can just import it.

Kinda pissed that they kept Eden going, but they don't want to bring back YUA or Legend of Mother Sarah.

Perhaps the license for those titles ran out? It would be much more costly to re-license a title then to keep a current one going.

There are a few other manga titles I know they slowed down the pace, like Bastard!! and Kindaichi case files which only come out bi-yearly now.

They can barely sell enough copies of Eden as is. How are they going to justify bringing back another post-apocalyptic title (one that most people would agree isn't as good as Eden) that sold like crap back when Otomo was one of the biggest names in fandom?
And since DH supposedly never printed the first five volumes of YUA because Fujishima was ashamed of them I don't have much desire to see that series brought back.

While this isn't very good news, it still gives me time to catch up. At least there'll be one more person buying it soon.

Kagemusha: The market's changed since Legend of Mother Sarah first came out, and more fans are aware of Otomo. Plus, series with female leads who can kick ass seem to be popular here nowadays.

I'm not surprised Eden isn't really a popular series - I mean the genre itself isn't overwhelmingly popular in North America. Personally, I really enjoy the series but fortunately, I'm not too much in a rush to purchase the rest. I have up to volume 7 and with the massive amount of manga that I order every month, this just gives me some breathing room (for my wallet anyways) for the other volumes.

I really wish Kindaichi Case Files was released more than bi-annually. I hate waiting for long for the next volume - the only volume I need now is the Headless Samurai which seems to be out of print for some odd reason since there are tons of the other volumes still in stock....

Yeah, I've had to look all around of the lot of the volumes. The early ones are not to hard to find but the later ones are much harder. I finally have all the ones that have come out in the U.S. but only because when my friend went to Florida (I live in Pennsylvania), she found it and bought it for me.

Ah, thanks for that. Smile

Haha, this is funny. Maybe through the end of Phase 1 it ran weekly, but after a 3-4 month break, it's pretty much been releasing bi-weekly, in a weekly magazine... I'm not sure if it's because Oku-sensei slowed down, or it just takes that long to do all the CG work, but I stopped following it about 8 months ago and have been waiting for the English version to come out since I heard about its licensing. Not too much longer now.

Kindaichi was slowed down by Tokyopop due to lack of sales (as well as B't X, which is FINALLY at its last 2 volumes now), but I think Viz slowed down on Bastard!! so that there's even less of a chance that they would catch up and then have to wait, literally, years between releasing volumes.
