Good work Seven Seas!

While I am really keen on reading "Soul Liquid Chambers", "Made in Abyss" & "Clockwork Planet" are tempting as well.

@Snow I asked because the Simulcast post have info about other countries/languages, so I was curious if it could be included here to. It was for Spanish releases, I dont know about other English markets aside the US.

@BlindNoldor In terms of language, probably not. This list will only cover English-translated licenses as far as I know. If you happen to be familiar with titles licensed in English outside of English-speaking territories, feel free to contribute to the thread!
