TOKYOPOP has recently announced they will be producing a new online newsletter focusing on Asian Pop Culture powered by GeekChicDaily. An announcement newsletter was sent out this Wednesday.

An official tweet from @TOKYOPOPManga mentions that they are hoping to "be able to release new manga very soon." They have also stated they are looking into publishing both print and digital versions of manga.

The TOKYOPOP official Facebook page has stated that this new @TOKYOPOPManga is in fact a legitimate Twitter account of theirs.

I always liked Tokyopop, partially because they subbed Initial D.

I too like Tokyopop. I like owning what manga I can and Viz can't do everything.


Good luck getting back on your feet, TP.

It makes me happy knowing they aren't going down without some sort of fight. I'm going to be pessimistic about how it ends though, since they were pretty much dead when they couldn't continue previously.

I'm going to remain a skeptic until I actually see them trying to make a change. It also greatly depends on what licenses they're able to obtain, which will be interesting considering how they screwed over and lost the trust of some of the most influential manga publishers in Japan (i.e. Kodansha).

I wouldn't buy from them again even if they release something I really want and price is 1$ per book.

Fuck you Tokyopop.

Tokyopop should get a new owner, though. I have little to no trust for Stu Levy (he'd better not be trolling). This is coming from a guy majoring in business administration. *-_-
At least the ppl can get their jobs back and don't have to starve. :)
Now get your asses to licensing Rozen Maiden season 2 ASAP!! XD

I still think that their whole closing down shit was a publicity stunt. Once everyone hears that Tokyopop is going out of business, they run out to buy the last volumes of the series they're reading so that they can get them before their gone. Real money booster.

Whatever. Welcome back, Tokyopop.

Man, I'd like them to still be around when Priest finishes. I'd hate to have to wait for all the volumes to be republished (on top of indefinite hiatus)...

Good. I liked Tokyopop.

A lot of the manga I'm reading is from the local library, and they have a lot of Tokyopop volumes, so it's nice to know I'll now be able to finish the series I started there. ^_^

I'm very hopeful that they can get back on their feet and continue publishing, but ... I have this nagging feeling in the base of my skull that the words 'digital release' are forthcoming. And I like my manga in print ...

WTF Stu?! If you wanted to keep publishing manga then why the flying F did you shut down your company to begin with?! Besides I thought you wanted to move onto...ya know, other projects that don't involve publishing manga?

If he does decide to publish manga again, it better be the series TP left hanging with 1-2 volumes left to go. Its the only way Stu will win my trust back, cause as of right now, i'm not buying anything else from him.
