Really excited for the print edition of Farewell, My Dear Cramer. I'm interested in the premise, but back when I tried to read the Crunchyroll chapters, the pages were split wrong, which made it pretty difficult to read. I don't think Crunchyroll ever fixed that, either. Glad I'll be able to read it now.

Also, Beyond the Clouds looks like something I'd enjoy as well. The art style looks very nice. The cat and pet vet manga look cute as well.

The company also announced that it will publish CLAMP's Chobits and Clover manga to its Kodansha Classics line.


I wonder how it’ll differ from the Dark Horse release.[/quote]

Saint Young Men is coming out in print? Excellent! I was going to buy it digitally, but now I'll wait for the print edition. And just in time for Christmas too. How delightfully apt!

Looking forward to print editions of Farewell, My Dear Cramer. I do hope they fix the many glaring errors and typos that were in their simulpub chapters though.

Also, I wish Kodansha would finally publish Your Lie in April: Coda. It's been published in Spanish, German, and French, but not in English. They've never said why when I've tried contacting them.

Saint Young Men in print! *insert "Shut up and take my money!" image here*

I'm also curious to check out Perfect World, having heard good things about it. More Kanata Konami cat manga is a welcome announcement, too Very Happy

And although it wasn't really my thing, it's about time someone license-rescued Saiyuki. Hopefully its follow-up series are next.

Beyond The Clouds looks super cute! It totally looks like my kind of manga, and the anime looks cute, too! I'll be watching that one for sure! Very Happy

Love the cover of "Beyond the Clouds".

Bought the digital release of "Perfect Word" a month ago and was going to buy more, but now I'll wait for the physical, which I'm glad it was popular enough to get.

Another chapter in Kodansha's unyielding goal to vacumm up all of Darkhorses licenses.

As for Saiyuki, I was never the biggest fan of the series, but I would like to compare the translations.

Looking forward to Saint Young Men in print and the ice skating manga Smile

I appreciate that they're doing a license rescue with Saiyuki since I remember that there are a decent amount of hardcore fans willing to pay a lot of limited edition volumes.

I enjoy that they're getting the rest of CLAMP's catalog too. Unfortunately, I won't be rebuying it since I have the Clover omnibus from Dark Horse.

From digital to print, I'm quite excited for Saint Young Men and Perfect World!

For new titles, I'm very interested in Knights of Ice (her other series, Tramps Like Us/You're My Pet, is just so damn good) and curious on Something's Wrong With Us (I did enjoy her Arisa series quite a bit)

Correction to the article:

Yes, Tokyopop did publish the 9 volumes of the original manga. However, they also licensed the Saiyuki Reload manga (not mentioned in the article), but only published 9 of the 10 volumes. Reload Blast (mentioned in the article) is a sequel to Reload, not the original.

You can still buy RG Veda, Drug & Drop/Legal Drug, and Blood-C in the Dark Horse digital store, so I presume they still have those licenses.
