I was extremely wary when I first heard that Tokyopop planned on publishing again and got annoyed thinking about all of the unfinished series in my possession. I was even more annoyed when I saw that they were publishing manga that I wanted to read, but I caved because I like those particular mangaka. The few releases I've read are surprisingly not terrible. The translations are relatively decent and the overall quality of the books is not bad.

I wouldn't trust them with a long series though. Everything I've seen so far has either been a oneshot or a few volumes.

It was - MangaMo has it on their app, but there was no "regular" release, i.e. by volume rather than chapters.

@outdoorpajamas

Agreed. So far the only series I've bought from the "new" Tokyopop is Aria which is one of the unfinished series from the old company. I decided when they restarted that I would only buy must have titles. I'm not going down that rabbit hole again.
