Well I know for sure that itll be updated n stuff, but I dont think I have ever seen manga licences being so barebones at the time it being posted, and when Q4 is right around the corner as well.

That's my bad, @alpha_shadow! I thought they were added in my previous update, but it seems like I forgot them.
