Megalobox looks like something that would be Toonami bound

Probably so. At least this helps to explain why Funimation didn't simuldub it. I kinda hate that viz waited so long to announce they held the rights but at least it should be getting a dub now.

Aha finally it’s getting localized.

Hopefully Megalobox gets a dub soon.

Also worth noting that they announced that Banana Fish would be getting a reprint.

Megalo Box's dub will probably premiere on Toonami. Just a guess.

Happy to see Megalobox licensed for home video. I hope Viz does not take forever to release it.

Good choice for Viz, and maybe Toonami can speed up a complete home video release.

*edit* This is easy to miss, it's not tagged with "manga", only "anime".

So, is this Ito Manga gonna be the same collection of stories as "Shin Yami no Koe" (New voices in the dark"? It uses the same cover in this preview. Wouldn't it have made sense to get the first one-shot first (Yami no Koe / voices in the dark), or get both?

I mean, I'll take everything I can get, but it's a bit strange.

We aren't missing soo much Ito now.

Black Paradox 1 vol
Voices in the Dark 1 vol
Hellstar Remia 1 vol
Mimi no Kaidan 1 vol
and 13 or so remaining volumes of Horror Comic Collection

And then whatever new stuff he released / is releasing.
