Other than Sunflower volume 2, none of those titles were really on my radar at all, and as I already own Sunflower volume 2 (and it's excellent, for the record- one of the most charismatic leads I've encountered in manga), this doesn't especially bother me. Although, I don't really understand how it could be on the list of cancellations if its already been released......................

All You Need Is Love 1- Oct 21
Physical Attraction -Oct 21
Dry Heat -Nov 4
Temperature Rising -Nov 18
Kabuki 2: Red -Dec 2
Love!!- Dec 16

These are the street dates from my Right Stuff orders. However, they did say they were cutting back so I'm not too worried.
I've been waiting for a couple of their titles for over a year

Man, Knights 2 has been delayed until late 2009, and Enchanter 10 is just "postponed"? I guess I'll be waiting a while longer to start reading Knights, never mind Enchanter...

Actually, what I am most relieved about is the fact that none of the "delayed" titles were titles I was specifically looking forward to the releases of. As far as I know, Blue Sheel Reverie volume 1 will still be out in December/early January. As for the others, even if they are later in coming, they are still coming, so all is well.

Well, I guess I don't have to hurry up and catch up on Enchanter then.

I'm actually surprised DMP hadn't made some announcement on this sooner. I've actually been following Enchanter since shortly after DMP started releasing it. Volume 9 had a release date for August (according to amazon). Every book store I know hasn't gotten it in and Amazon just in the past week finally said they had it in stock. The biggest surprise to me was that it wasn't even listed on DMP's own website. In listing the volumes, they jumped right over 9 and went to volume 10.

I'm a little bit depressed to find out I'm going to have to wait even longer for volume 10, but I'm getting used to it by now.

Yeah, tell me about it. I've been reading since volume 4. Hopefully it won't be delayed too long.

Enchanter is the only thing on that list I care about and it's also the only thing without a date attached. I worry about it's future since it's one of the few non-Yaoi they have.

Well thank goodness Vampire Hunter D is going to keep going. Although it wasn't on the original list, so I never knew it was in any danger to begin with.

Like others, the only other one I was interested in is Enchanter, but it may be long time before I ever get to it, if ever. For various reasons.

I hope they do not ditch enchanter altogether, it was the only one on that list I am reading.

I'm glad to hear they're postponed rather than cancelled.

I get an email newsletter from DMP - wish they'd announce this kind of thing there, so their intrepid customers would know what's going on.

Also, I'm happy to say that I already got 'Sunflower 2' and was a little puzzled about the original article.
