They are going to every country importing and exporting these manga, also inspiring new works! Theya re also doing naimation and now novels. There's no stopping them! I love them! x_X lmao

Good luck to them. I hear that Germany already has a booming business in selling manga there, and I think most of their titles are also liscensed there. I've also heard that German manga translations, are for the most part, horrible.

I've always thought the German translations were decent, certainly not much worse than the English ones.
I'm looking forward to Tokyopop Germany, maybe I'll finally be able to get some series not out over there yet for a decent price! Jo Kaps will surely do a great job, but I can see this being not so good for Carlsen, the company he recently left. Ah well, as long as someone releases good manga.

Haha, that's pretty funny. Still, I wish Tokyopop Germany good fortune! May they sell a lot of manga and as Zeiram said, take over the world!!! Twisted Evil
