Wooo! I mean, I'm excited about this series alone, but does this mean it's possible to license rescue titles that lapsed partway through now? :O

Every time they do this my heart dies a little when it’s not the resurrection of Kindaichi Case Files...

This is one of my favorite manga ever, and I'm so happy that I'll be able to read the rest of it now Anime cry Hoping for a print release later on, but given its length, it's a bit of a long shot...

It's happened before! I think the last high-profile rescue of this sort was Initial D. Still holding out hope for Sgt. Frog here.

Presumably this is digitally, as it'd be nice to read the stuff Vertical didn't release, as I missed one volume which seemed to be going for stupid prices, and then there was a big skip to the Napa Valley stuff which meant a whole load was missed out.

Would probably prefer printed versions, though, as what i did read i liked.

Wow.

I never thought I'd see this day. The Drops of God is one of my favourite manga to this day. So much so, that I purposely pre-ordered or bought Vertical's volumes on the week of release at Canada's Book Overlord to show support.

Time to mull over how to support this series...

A bit? T__T

How ‘bout 3xe Eyes and Eden, Endless World, too, while you’re at it? Wink And Cromartie High, too. And that Mushishi-esque germ manga whose name escapes me, but which isn’t Cells at Work.

Is this a good sign that we'll get this title in print again?

Have all the volumes they released so far. But if it's just digital, then that's a bummer.

I believe Vertical said they were happy with sales, but the Japanese side wanted a publisher who'd get larger sales volumes and so the split with Vertical over this title happened...
