I like Gon, but it's not a hit here. As for Wallflower, that's gotta be awkward that they're goin' back to the singles model after Del Rey did a 3-in-1 on the last few volumes. Anyway, most of the line-up's alright, but not really interesting. What's the hold-up on Sailor Moon, for example?

No Princess Resurrection? That's depressing...

Bloody Monday! WOO!

And I thought Shugo Chara! was ending with Vol. 10. Is Amu going to start counting volume titles on the cover with her toes?

I'm loving the bimonthly schedule. It's a bit weird how they aren't publishing omnibuses any more, though. I don't envy an OCD Air Gear collector.

Bloody Monday is an excellent series. I can't wait for it to come out this August. It's pretty self-contained with 11 volumes, but it also has a continuation that's ongoing.

No Nodame Cantabile? Sad

Ah well, they might still announce a new volume for Q3 or Q4 2011.

I am raging like a madman.

One more volume... JUST ONE MORE VOLUME OF GHOST HUNT! How hard is it to publish one last freaking volume. Go to hell Kodansha. Please, somebody tell me they will release that volume eventually.

At least they are continuing SZS.

Sucks to hear about Ghost Hunt. But I'm looking forward to collecting SZS and Arisa.

Tsubasa and xxxHolic will continue under the Del Rey brand, not Kodansha USA.

honestly, there isn't anything for me in that list, although animal land sounds funny, but need more info about it...

Knowing what I do of your tastes from the manga board, I can pretty much guarantee you that you'd really like Gon - it's a really excellent series.
This will be the third time it's been published in the US though so its announcement isn't exactly big news.

I was hoping for three Del Rey titles to be continued by Kodansha - Moyasimon, The Yagyu Ninja Scrolls and, most of all, Nodame Cantabile - and they've said nothing about any of those.
Ho hum. At least they've left open the possibility of one or more of them being announced next year.

That news gives me hope for the same quality releases like the previous volumes.

And now that I know that there are release dates of sorts for Arisa, I may now pick that up. I didn't want to buy the first volume, then find out that it was going to be dropped or something with the switch over.

This is awesome for so many reasons!:

1. I like the Deltora Quest anime on The Hub, so I definately need to read the manga.

2. This gives hope for other manga that Del dropped (School Rumble, Fairy Navigator Runa, etc)

3. I like that they are releasing more Capcom manga, like Phoenix Wright and Monster Hunter.

Dang. May releases for Del Rey's series. Well, at least it seems there will be a few 2-month waits. Hopefully, that remains consistent and it's not just because the titles are being handed over and the translations were still being done...

Her Guardians join in Smile
