They better put all these titles on their signature line and do them the best of releases, likewise with the other titles..

Ikigami sounds cool, but I'm still waiting for Viz to announce a new anime license! I'm really hoping they announce that they have Gintama or Reborn.

Whoa, whoa! Dogs got picked up? Awesome! Hopefully (I would be surprised actually if it isn't so) the deal includes Bullets and Carnage.

Finally, a Pokemon manga based on the RPGs has been licensed! They haven't picked one of those up since, heck, the RBY days! I'm going to have to check that out when it's released.

I assume Bakegyamon is this? I didn't know there was a manga for this. It looks like one of those typical kids titles meant to market a game, which could possibly mean the licensing of the anime.

Though I wonder, do any kids actually purchase these kid-oriented titles (asides from Pokemon)? It seems like younger children seldom read manga, but I wouldn't really know for sure. I hope those titles sell well for them.

As for the two teen-oriented titles, I'm suspecting that those will be part of the normal line.

:O What's happy happy clover? I heard it's about rabbits, but that's all. If that's what it's about, however, that's reason enough for me to buy it.

Yes, I like rabbits. Embarassed

They already have both of those. They're licensed under the Shounen Jump Advance line.

I don't get it. What is wrong with re-releasing Pokemon Adventures instead of all this other Pokemon stuff?

Nope. Not quite. And the DP Adventures manga was released months ago.

Oh, really?? Confused Haven't seen that one around any of the places I frequent.

Well in any case, more Pokemon manga is a good thing.

Dogs?! Wow. I never thought it'd ever get licenced, all the more so as it's only four volumes long as of now. Ah well, I'm glad, this is one of the very few manga that I wouldn't mind owning in both Japanese and English.

(Now if only Miwa would hurry up a little... )
