As I’m sure every person who reads manga in English knows, TokyoPop, who was a huge published of Manga in North America, shut down it’s North American office and stopped publishing manga in English. All the manga that they published had their licenses returned to the original owner and could be sold to other publishers, but how many of your favorites have actually been picked up by a new publisher? I know know several of mine have not and now if i want to read them, I have to find fan translated copies on the internet. My collection of the volumes may never be complete and if, by chance, a new publisher does pick up and publish my favorites, will the covers be the same? Will they match previous volumes or will I (most likely) feel the need to re-buy all volumes so that they match?
If any manga publishers are actually reading this (highly unlikely) here’s a few series you should pick up and publish in English:
Dazzle, Fate/Stay Night, Shinobi Life, and Togainu No Chi.
What do you think? What were some series you loved that were never finished due to TokyoPop closing?
