I'm really excited about them getting Your and My Secret. I just wish I didn't have to wait until v. 8 to see what happened. I already have 1-7 before TP closed up.

I've been waiting to get a subscription, because I want them to get their iPad app out, but I might get one sooner now, especially if they get more unfinished TP titles like VB Rose and Lady Kanoko.

Tactics and Good Witch of the West -- if JManga gets to beyond where Tokyopop stopped publishing, they may finally have some volumes I want to pay for.

I'd think about signing up if they'd pick-up these TP titles not finished: Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase, Foxy Lady and The Qwaser of Stigmata.

I would love to see Tactics complete its run in English. I own everything Tokyopop released, so it'll be a while before I purchase it on Jmanga. Hooray for the opportunity though!

...Huh...I'm guessing that Mag Garden is looking to jump in on the JManga bandwagon, or maybe it's something else. I'm naive to ask this since I don't know much about business management and marketing, but I'm curious as to how did that happen? Maybe they picked up some of Tokyopop's old licenses, since these series were once released from Tokyopop?

I am in a happy shock over Good Witch. Tokyopop stopped right before the final volume so that is a sure buy for me, but since I already own all volumes up to it in physical form it's hard for me to justify double dipping

I'd prefer those to be published in print, so I'd like the other company (such as Yen Press, Kodansha USA, Seven Seas Entertainment, etc.) to license-rescue those manga rather than this JManga (known for Online Manga) to pick up those.

Was interested in Monochrome Factor for some time, but was disappointed that it's going to be online (which I would never pay for online). :/

Agree, JManga has a pretty lousy reader as well. I'd much rather have a pdf if I was going to buy digital at all. I don't see why they can't print on demand.

They mentioned they were looking into it when somebody asked about it on their Facebook page a while back(I stopped looking after it became impossible to follow things without being signed in), but my guess is that they're not big enough yet for the publishers to care.

I e-mailed them about this a month ago, they said that they were still looking at it, so we can atleast say there planning something. (I hope)
