Yay I did wanna finish collecting Mirai Nikki and Hanako and the Terror of Alegory. I hope they also bring over the Nikki spin offs, Mosaic and Paradox!

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.

I hope they can finish up some of their manga series!

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 ...

My life is safed!
I'm waiting for Gravitation Ex Volume 2 or 3
And Kyou Kara Maou! Vol. 8 ^3^

Good, now they better finish Mirai Nikki

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. ^_^

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)...

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.

But I suppose I should save my excitement for when this actually happens...

Oct 13, 2011 11:51 AM by Selphie-

hopefully think will be alright

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

Scratching the surface dirt of your grave eh? Keep at it, I read some of your Aria releases.

Oct 13, 2011 5:06 AM by Zeream

Good news. Hopefully they can finish up some of their manga series.

Oct 13, 2011 3:13 AM by FoolishBandit

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

Fuck you Tokyopop.

Oct 13, 2011 2:31 AM by Jure

what the............... didn't they just disappear? but yeah, please continue BLU too..... hehehe

Oct 13, 2011 1:35 AM by laketica

I would be very happy if they could complete all the series they've half done. But, lulwut.

Oct 13, 2011 12:00 AM by scrotey

It'd be good if they carry on publishing manga.

Oct 12, 2011 11:26 PM by AlexSadist-sama

Good now get back PeaceMaker Kurogane and Togainu no Chi. Cause I would like to own PeaceMaker Kurogane volume 6 in English please since it just started back up again in Japan.
