All right kids it's that time of year again... LICENSE SEASON Opens Tonight. Search your souls for manga that are utterly Vertical.

@therealspratt heh while i agree that the quality is completely 42 volumes that's utterly horizontal as in flatlined dead ;p

@jennytablina RE: Sailor Moon. Well, in the name of the moon I wanna believe that one's coming back but not from us.

@jennytablina RE: Angel Densetsu...sadly we cannot release Shonen Jump titles. Please send those requests to Viz :)

@Sheentaku We have inquired about Devilman and right now it is not possible. Wotaku no Musume-san...YEOUCH!!! Really

@Sheentaku I like where you are going with Nana & Kaoru but you do know how hard it is to sell 18+ manga in stores right?

@Sheentaku Sadly B&N would never shelve something like that and they can make up more than 1/3 of a manga's sales.

@Vertical_Ed Nana & kaoru has no boobies really. If Sundome can make it so can Nana

@Sheentaku I understand your logic but we are not Yen Press. We can't take those risks nor are we given many chances to do so.

@Vertical_Ed The US market is obviously waiting for Lolicon Phoenix.

@bakatanuki It is and so am I...I just hope some brave and disturbed publisher will swoop in wearing overalls to give it to us someday.

@Vertical_Ed To bad we don't know any like that..

@Vertical_Ed Is there any chance Vertical would pick up the license to Tezuka's Adolf after you've finished with Black Jack?

@JTabon Is there a chance? Well I could check with Tezuka Pro next week when they pass by our office, but Viz did release that already.

@Vertical_Ed Otoyomegatari by Kaoru Mori! Can't exactly count on CMX to follow up on Emma's success anymore, after all...

@botoggle @Vertical_Ed I second Otoyomegatari. I would love to read Kaoru Mori's newest work and it has another interesting setting.

@botoggle I like what I have seen so far, but it's hard to bite on only one volume. So I'm waiting until 3 are available.

JEFF♪♪@STILL TIRED @botoggle

@Vertical_Ed Fair enough, I'd just love to see it get picked up by somebody.

@botoggle give it some time to get fleshed out. i'm sure someone will bite, and it is on a short list for me.
