I got really excited for a second when I saw Heroman.

And then I realized it wasn't the anime.

I may buy the Heroman comic since we still don't have the anime. Curse you Disney...

Yes, they're releasing Limit! The manga has such a fascinating story.

Limit is the only one that sounds remotely interesting, so I'll probably try that one. Heroman didn't really interest me when the anime came out, and I definitely don't need a Queen's Blade artbook. Razz

Limit got licensed. Limit got licensed.

Vertical, I love you.

The Gray Men novel sounds very interesting; I'm in for that, definitely. I enjoyed the episodes of Heroman that I saw, so I may pick up the manga as well.

I'll be picking up Limit and Grey Men but most likely not Heroman. The words Vertical and Queens Blade do not seem to fit together in my head.

To be honest, the manga's are just about 99.2% of the time better than the anime; so I'm gonna pick this one up, since it has an awesome plot.

While they got Limit, hopefully they'll go for Life at some point. That manga is so excellent, I'd love to find out how the story ends.

Guess I'll collect the Heroman manga just to have any incarnation of the story, since it doesn't seem we'll get the anime domestically anytime soon.

Well the Queen's Blade art book is right up my alley so I will get that for sure. Not sure about Heroman or Limit since I have never read anything about that.

It's possible, but Ed Chavez has said he really doesn't like doing license rescues unless he has to (like a bundle, I think).

I know what you mean it's like a dog meowing.
Will definitely pick up Limit and Grey Men I've been wanting to read the Heroman manga since I saw the anime so I may pick that up. But as for Queen's Blade I'd sooner chew off my arm than purchase that. Will limit be their first Shojo title?
Edit: never mind forgot about princess knight.

Limit sounds really interesting! Will definitely pick that one up. No interest in the rest though. Doesn't sound like they got their josei title squared away in time for the announcement.

Limit sounds interesting. I don't know anything about it beyond the summary in the article, but that's enough get my attention. I look forward to learning more about it.

There is something of a disconnect. Apollo's Song, Buddha, 7 Billion Needles, Queen's Blade, Twin Spica... Which one of these is not like the others...
