I think it's kind of nice how two publishers are sharing the license for one franchise. I'm guessing it has to do with the Japanese publishers.

Oooh I'm actually not interested in these particular titles at all but I like a lot of Zero Sum manga and it makes me happy to see anything licensed from there by anyone. Also I hope this might mean Seven Seas will look in to more shojo because they seem to have a close relationship with Media Works and there are some good titles that run in their shojo magazine, Sylph...

Just a quick correction:

Crimson Rose --> Crimson Empire

Seven Seas has been getting the Ichijinsha titles and Yen Press the Mag Garden titles. Ichijinsha, of course, has a billion spin-off titles that are usually one or two volumes long. Mag Garden has the original and My Fanatic Rabbit--Yen Press has licensed both. The former is being released this month and My Fanatic Rabbit is in a few months.

There's also an official fanbook anthology published by Pict Press. Not sure if either company is looking at it.

Just picked up my Bloody Twins copy today, and am anxiously awaiting Yen's three omnibus releases of WWW so I can finally finish it.(yes...double dipping!)

And, will be picking up all of the Kuni no Alice titles as they come out.

Now if we can just get the movie licensed! Though, I'm not counting on it....Come through for us Sentai!! As the are probably the only ones who would touch it. Heh, maybe NISA will make it their first movie, they do seem to pick a lot of shoujo...

Can we please just get the game over here already? Surely the license for a PC game can't be that much, and there's obviously a fan base if two publishers can successfully sell an adaption of said game.

Basically I just want an easier way to play because the game uses too much kanji for me with my poor Japanese skills to have a fun time of it.
