Awesome! The Frieren manga got licensed! I like what I've read so far, so you can bet I'll be buying this!

If Baka-Updates Manga is to be believed, Animal Crossing has a few manga adaptations. I’m pretty sure this is the first time one is being released in English, though.

In any case, I will be picking this up if I get the chance. Same with the FMA light novel after I buy the FMA light novels I don’t have.

Wish Viz would at least reprint the old FMA novels, since they're practically impossible to find at a decent price. Or really license more Jump novels in general, preferably outside of the big 4 (One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, My Hero). I don't think that kid in the twitter thread went it the right way of bashing every license Viz announced in order to raise awareness to the JJK novels, but I have to admit it would be nice to have them, as well as Demon Slayer, Promised Neverland, Black Clover, etc. All have novels that literally no other company can license due to the Shueisha/Viz relationship, so Viz not getting them just means they will never come.

I assume it's likely the case where maybe the Japanese licensors just aren't putting those novels up to be licensed. If Viz could license them they probably would have by now. I'm happy to see more Rumiko Takahashi being brought over.

I guess it's relatively expensive for them to have them translated, seeing as (and this is an assumption) fewer people buy the light novel than the original manga. But yeah it's a pity those licenses aren't popping up at other publishers who are willing to make the investment.

Very hyped by all the new licenses, Monster No. 8 is no surprise, but I'm very happy with it. Also, cool they're finally releasing more One Piece stuff. I think it's weird how little they've released for such a massive worldwide hit. And personally happy with the Demon Slayer box set, haven't started the series and was kind of hoping for a box set to be released.

There's a typo in the title. "Rozen Blood" should be "Rosen Blood."
