I specifically remember at least half of this stuff getting announced (at least on other sites) but I believe some of it is new.

I, at least, didn't know we were getting a reissue of the AWESOME Pokemon Adventure manga~ at a $7.99 msrp, no less! I really hope this is unflipped. And with Blue and Green having the right names, because I am confused easily. And past where it got released the first time. (They're advertising it as "the very fist Pokemon saga" though? Are they aware Pokemon was a game first? I do recall the game's creator saying that this manga was the best animanga version of what he had in mind, but still...)

oh, these little earthquakes

DMC is going to fucking rock.
They better not tone it down or censor it.
