Oh, Tokyopop

Dekoboko Sugar Days - Atsuko Yusen

Giving the revived Tokyopop any more of my money feels wrong, but this sounded sweet and fun. I couldn't help myself. ::sigh::


In case you don't know any of the history, Tokyopop is a publisher that imploded a few years back. Lots of people laid off, volumes with scheduled release dates that were then never published, lots of English language release licenses in limbo, etc. I have one fairly lengthy manga series that was one volume away from being finished, and now my only way of ever finding out what happened is fan translations or watching the anime and hoping it's true to the manga.


I really shouldn't give them more of my money. But... ::sigh:: It depends on my reading mood, but I'm hoping to get around to this over the weekend.
