This might be the most releases North America has seen in a while. I hope it's because manga sales in America has significantly increased as of late. From what I can tell, a lot of people watch anime now, it's almost not social suicide to watch anime anymore, in fact, in some situation (my college experience for example) watching anime was actually pretty cool. I hope that the increase in manga adaptations continues and hopefully we'll see more dual-published manga in the future such as Fairy Tail and Platinum End.
