Maybe they'll edit their names...
Chik Mis and Pieces of THE Spiral
Yeah, dumb joke, but yeesh, I wish they'd say something in regards to TT...

Two more titles to boycott then... until they fix and re-release Ten Ten properly.

As far as I'm concerned, CMX kiss my "shiny metal ***"

Actually, I've not even heard anything about these titles, so I guess it doesn't affect me either way.

Embarassed

Stupid thing is, I checked their website, and forgot it was in alphabetical order, so I looked at the bottom and saw that hte last title listed was in August.

That was really stupid of me!

Tempest: Nah, their site's a pain to navigate. Should be organized by dates, not by titles.

All of DC's subdivision sites are like that. It is a lot better than when they went on a frame-coding spree back in the days.

I'm pretty happy that I can get Kaimu Tachibana title domistically. CMX is making go back to the manga-buying groove unlike Viz and TP, strange enough.

I just hope that their new batch of titles is printed with a correct paper running direction. You can't put horizontal running paper in a vertical spine, unless you want to make the book feel like it's about to explode when openend up too far. Whoever OK'd their current printing procedure really, really needs to be fired... I've seen amateurs put out technically superior TPBs Rolling Eyes

Why boycott titles that may be done right even though the publisher has one title they did wrong? Every company out there has fudged up at least one title, yet they aren't boycotted...

It's all about something like the TT situation happening at just the right point to get the maximum amount of people annoyed...
Don't try to make sense of society, you may end up depressed...

I think it was more in the way CMX responded to the people taking issue with Tenjou Tenge's treatment (which, as I remember, was rather rude), than with the edits themselves.

I was really looking forward to Chikyu Misaki. I wish CMX hadn't licensed it. Now I may not even buy it.

I thought they didn't comment on it? Or did they? I haven't followed the Tenten situation, I'm probably missing out...but I don't care much since Diamond is distributing the japanese versions these days Razz

To tell the truth, outside of Gals!, I'm not that interested in what they have to offer anyway. It's like they just picked up a bunch of random manga titles with no actual plan on how to cross-promote them, other than dumping them in comic and bookstores. (Reeks of deja vu with ADV...) And then Jake ends up being the fallguy for their draconian policies, which apparently aren't exclusive to manga, what with Alan Moore bailing out of DC as well...Oh well, they'll probably sell off the library to Dark Horse by the end of the year or so...

It's as much a reason as any actually. Their silence on the matter is apalling. They've recieved numerous letters, e-mails, etc. and yet they've yet to make so much as a comment on the matter. Ignoring your consumer base is one of the worst things any company can do.

Moreover, I don't think the silence is the worst issue. It's more that the way that they went about things goes against common sense. Thumb through their censored version and then tell me that the content is appropriate for a 13 year old.

I can't trust their business practices or their judgement. If I can't trust them, that's all the more reason why I won't buy from them. It's for this reason that if they make the efforts to fix what they've done, my perceptions of CMX as a whole can be changed.

Does anyone know if DC is going to Comic Con San Diego? I think the best thing left to do is to confront the higher ups. Since CMX hadn't comply, why not bug the main company?
