Anyone up for a game of ice hockey at Satan's house later on today?

Actualy, I know quite a few people in Europe who will be happy to hear this since they really have a hard time getting some Viz titles.

I'm glad people in Germany will be able to get their Bleach fix.

I'm the goalie... FROM HECK.

And it makes business sense... after all, Viz/Shueisha still get share of the money and they didn't even have to establish a German office or hire translators. Twisted Evil

Oh well, it's not as if there had not been any Shueisha titles in Germany before...
So far, the two biggest companies, EMA and Carlsen Comics, have both released their share of Shueisha series. Now there will only be ONE company publishing Shueisha manga in the future. I hope they will not be too choosy and also release some of the less-mainstream titles.
Tokyopop are great, but I just hope this doesn't mean less Shueisha series in the market.
