Also, note that they have lost publishing rights for GTO. Meaning ALL of GTO will go OUT OF PRINT.

More details here: http://manga.about.com/b/2009/08/31/man ... ebcast.htm

Damn it.

Well, I guess what we have to do is figure out where we go from here.
Should we start sending letters to Del Ray, and Kodansha even?
We really need to show them that there are people that care about the series overseas.

Yes, this news isnt all negative. This means that we are no longer stuck in limbo waiting to know if tokyo pop is going to do anything more with SJG or not. It also means that another company has the opportunity to license it.

This at least gives us the ability to do something with our own hands.

We should target Del Rey as they have taken over other Kodansha licenses.

Excellent news! Any word on whether they are continuing from where Tokyopop left off or are they starting from the beginning? Double volume or single volumes? If its single volumes and they start from the beginning, it's gonna take ages.

Seems like it. I have my eyes on some of the manga they're publishing (7 Billion Needles, and No Longer Human).

I hope they do double volumes (since they will release 1 every 2 months).
I wouldnt mind them starting from the beginning though since i missed most of the story

Question: if they release it from the beginning, would you buy all the volumes again or buy from where Tokyopop left off?
