So that was the research that delayed an issue of Beck near the very end of the series but anyways I can't wait to read this I love his work.

I hope Sakuishi did the same level of research here that he did in Beck. I'm amazed how he portrayed all Americans as violent and vulgar. Not to mention the amount of huge African Americans that always carried guns.

Speaking of Beck, I know Tokyopop lost the license. Any word on if/when they'll continue to publish the manga in the states?

The Seven Shakespeare manga sounds interesting!

Shocked Okay... did not foresee this turn of events. Sounds interesting. Hopefully, this title is licensed in English someday. The most likely publisher to publish it would be Viz Media given it is being published by Shogakukan in Japan. This wpuld also mean a higher probability of the series not being discontinued (as Tokyopop did with Beck) and not waiting 5-6 months between releases (CMX, Del Ray I am not meaning to be offensive to these publishers, but for a fan of their series, the waits could be excruciating).

Well if you want to be accurate it was Kodansha that discontinued Beck not Tokyopop. TP had no say in the matter they were just not allowed to renew there license.

A manga about Shakespeare. Huh. I'm not really sure how I feel about that. I wonder what he's going to do with it?

But Hiro and Beck, together? Two of my favorite things. *lets out fangirl squeal* Ahem. Anyway, that should be exciting.
