Am I the only one surprised that Media Blasters acquired Bakuman? And for that matter, I could have sworn that Media Blasters fell off the face of the planet. Guess I was wrong. Huh, interesting turn of events.

They did license Genshiken a while back, so it doesn't come to much of a surprise in that regard ^_-

Still pissed that a good anime like Ao no Exorcist is going to be subbed-only not dubbed. Not worth my money when I can watch it for free on CR. I'll buy it when they go back and dub it.

Did not hear about the Bakuman license. That's neat. I just wish Media Blasters would say something in regards to SZS.

Darn, already watched the layton movie. kinda regret i didn't watch it in english because hearing a british professor speaking japanese was kinda awkward
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

I did not know about Bakuman getting licensed. I thought VIZ would get it but oh well. I hope whoever is doing the dubs better do a good job.

I was looking all over for Fade to Black's release date, just found it today on the back of the Soul Resurreccion book, and when I went to post it today on a few sites, apparently it's common knowledge now. :P
