Sohryuden was a fairly dull anime, so I wonder why anyone would bother with the novel. Also, CLAMP in America=them flipping off fans while expecting AX staff to wait on them hand and foot.

Yay for more Negima manga! My only question, unrelated to this, is that what became of the second Negima series Funi picked up?

LOL whut?

Anyway, I'm happy that the novels are coming over since I'm interested in them. Just because the anime adaptation was dull doesn't mean the novel will be.

Negima Neo isn't that different from Negima from my experience. The rest doesn't really capture my interest either.

Finally a Tanaka novel in the US? Awesome. That gives me a small hope that we may get the LoGH books at some point.

From what I remember during the Negima-panel-turned-Greg Ayres-panel at Anime Expo, they've been recording the second series and OVA. As far as I know, there wasn't any announcement of a release date yet.

Interesting licences. The one I'm curious about it this Yokai Doctor manga. Can anyone please give me a brief synopsis of what this manga is about or any other additional info about it (i.e. the mangaka's name)? Just wondering. Thanks. ^__^

I saw Orange Planet and thought "Aria Spinoff".
Damn it.

It is at some point between being liscensed and being released.

It's nice to hear Neo got picked up. It's pretty low on my priority list, being an adaptation of a spin-off, but I think I'll be compelled to purchase it anyway (once my income is higher than my expenses, that is).

Edit: blasted homophones, that's what I get for going online to post when I get home from work at 3 am.

holybell, I looked around a little online and my guess is it's Youkai no Oisha-san (妖怪のお医者さん) by SATOU Yuuki. Seems to be his/her first major work... and that's what I know.

I'm only interested in Negima!? neo and possibly the CLAMP book - not heard of the others. It's not Akamatsu, but I've been collecting the takoubon anyway (although I think I'm missing one or two due to problems getting the LEs)
