The SuBLime staff members also stated at the panel that the company can't license Miyuki Abe's Super Lovers manga, stating "it's a content issue - we can't make it work in [the United States]." The staff also said regarding Shungiku Nakamura's Junjo Romantica manga, "it's up to 20 volumes now — it's just too long."
