This is good news. Since the last vol. stopped at 6? So glad to see this being picked up.

Oh, an can I say to 'Seven Seas' that since you picked up some "yuri" titles can you pick up some other good ones. We're missing out MAN!

Thank god about Blood Alone! I loved that manga, but Infinity Studios has apparently dropped off the face of the planet, so I thought the manga was dead in the west. Glad I'll be able to finally see what happens in the story.

Too bad I have to wait over a year for it though. That part isn't so exciting.

Oh yeah! Finally someone picked up Gunslinger Girl. Got all of the available books here, and very tired of reading scanlations of it. Sucks that we have to wait til 2011 though.

Finally someone rescues gunslinger girl. Thank you Seven Seas. ^^

Blood Alone hrmm, looks like Vampire Bund is doing good for them, maybe they'll be going after more lolicon/vampire titles from now on?

This is good news. Now I just need someone to pick up the Scrapped Princess light novels.

Great news about Gunslinger Girl! I've got all the US releases and most of the JP releases (to offset scanlation reading). It's been an enjoyable read so far... can't wait for more!

I've been waiting with bated breath for new "Blood Alone", which is one of the best vampire manga I've ever read; I'm so glad Seven Seas has picked it up and saved it. This almost makes me forgive them for axing "Kodomo no Jikan" lol

It's good to see Gunslinger Girl get picked up again. I've read scans of it, and I enjoyed the first season of the show. I wonder how different Seven Seas translation is going to be from ADV Manga's translation of Gunslinger Girl.

The word of the day is "omnibus" Smile

As much of a Strawberry Panic fan as I am, it's sad we won't see anymore unless something happens over on the other side of the pond. However, I'll happily double dip for the collected edition if it gets me a couple more chapters.

About time that Gunslinger Girl gets rescued. Though I never thought that Seven Seas's the one to do it (I honestly thought Yen Press is the one to do it). I only have 1st volume of it (haven't collected 'em since then).

The only 7Seas title I've been reading as of late is Hayate Cross Blade--now they have all the love in the world from me for saving Blood Alone. Despite some of its lolicon aspects, I found this manga to be beautiful and artistic in almost every way. THANK YOU SEVEN SEAS!

Yay! Gunslinger Girl! I was hoping someone would rescues this.

Now if someone would finish the Ninja Nonsense (Ninin Ga Shinobuden) manga, I'll be one happy camper Very Happy
