Anime News Service reports that Kodansha will cease to export some of its billingual manga titles. Card Captor Sakura, Love Hina, GTO, and Ah! My Goddess will no longer be exported, all of Kodansha's other billingual titles will continue to be exported. No reason was given for the change. However, it is possible that Kodansha was asked to cease the exportation by the foreign licensors of those particular titles as they would compete with the licensors' own printings of the same titles.
