Kodansha USA already holds the license for it, so it won't be added to the thread.

I’m super excited for the indie titles we’re getting (especially Glacier Bay’s), probably more so than anything else.

Congrats to Blue Lock fans btw. Kodansha’s digital jail depresses me. Still have my fingers crossed for Chihayafuru omnibuses or something.

I agree Kodansha's digital series really bothers me cause they have Rave Master and id die to see that reprinted in omnibus or something physical format.

Starting with Q4 2021, Seven Seas have really stepped up their game. They're actually licensing more decent or really good things, so hopefully they keep it up.

As for Viz, it feels like they're playing it way too safe, well it's good that they're putting out Dandadan in print at least.

I think you missed some of Viz's announcements, here's a full list:
