I'm not entirely sure how many of you guys know this, but Tokyopop is shutting down its U.S. publishing branch due to low income leaving the company with only 6 employees. It's really sad, I remember buying a crap ton of book from them when I was in high school and just reading the hell out of them. I'll miss you Tokyopop D:
As for the manga that are ongoing, I hope another publishing company picks them up and distributes them.

yes.. We already know.. As we already have a thread. First thread on pg. 2 of General Anime/Manga. And if you wouldn't have posted this thread it would've been at the bottom of page one so if you would've scrolled down you would've seen it.

Whoa, easy there. Why the hostility? She made a simple mistake. :S

Also, they only had six staff members? Really? That's pretty impressive.

Gee when is telling someone something already exist considered hostile? Someone has to tell her eventually. Especially when all you had to do was read a bit further down -shrugs-

And, yes, they only had 6 staff members because of a series of massive layoffs over the last several months.
