I absolutely hate this model that kodansha is moving towards, basing all their new print titles off of if the digital sells well.

Very much =/

I'm absolutely not going to buy ebooks to proof interest in a series just so I can then buy it a 2nd time. It's physical or nothing for me. On my manga list I now have 8 series I'd like to get that are digital only(first?) and I don't have my hopes up anymore.

Starving Anonymous sounds interesting, so I guess that list now goes up to 9 ...

Renjuro Kindaichi has a manga published by Kodansha whereas the "Kindaichi Case Files" was also published by Kodansha.

Oh interesting to see Starving Anonymous officially picked up, I was reading it just last week and it's certainly unique to say the least.

Starving Anonymous only has 4 chapters fan translated, but within those few chapters it has proven to be one of the strangest and more disturbing series I've read. I'm rather curious what kind of discussions will form once more people read the series.

I hope Perfect World does well enough to get a print release, so I can read it too.

*Adds Perfect World to list*
Hopefully this will get a print run, I'll be waiting for that.

I'm glad Starving Anonymous has been licensed! I liked Apocalypse as well, so I have high hopes.

Perfect World and Liar Liar are both pretty good... Perfect World more so... though it is painful AF in parts.
