Kami no Shizuku gets licensed and some other manga. \o/
Ribbon no Kishi by Osamu Tezuka
No Longer Human drawn by Usamaru
Princess Knight and another Usamaru manga
I've decided I like Vertical quite a lot.
Both on amazon and simon and schuster you can find 3-in-1 bundles of Naruto, Bleach, FMA, and Kekkashi.
Nothing reported from Viz but something to think about.
Meh. They're probably like the OP 3-In-1's, widebans with poor print quality and no extras. I doubt they will be VIZbig at that price, or as nice as the new editions of Death Note.
VIZBig editions of Kekkaishi would be orgasmic though :drool
They added the cover to the Bleach bundle and it's so much better than the One Piece chop up covers. Kekkaishi is the only thing I'm interested in and the price is such a great deal.
From New York Comic Con:

Shinegki no Kyojin will be released under the name Attack on Titan. Genshiken and Kitchen Princess are both reissues formerly published by Del Ray. Both will be released in 3-in-1 omnibus editions.
My future money belongs to Kodansha. I'll be all over Attack on Titan and Genshiken omnibus editions. I hope they will print Genshiken Nidaime too.
I need to find the full list of series but Kodansha has been licensing some very good series from themselves. Mardock Scramble and Animal World are already available, Gon reissues have started coming out too. If they would reissue Blame I might actually respect a publisher again.
Vertical is also owned by Kodansha now and have been putting out some great series even before the take over.

I've been wondering about this for a while. Last week I ordered Real (first 3 volumes) online, it said ''Signature series'' now yesterday when looking at the new uncut edition of tenjo tenge i've seen the same thing... this ''signature'' manga have something special? what is the diference for the others viz releases (like SJ, SJA, media or sunday)?
You answered your own question. It's just a label that Viz puts on their series, like SJ/SB/SS. Signature manga do have a larger trim size though.
Great seeing Shingeki no Kyojin licensed... Would prefer some sports manga (Ahiru no Sora or ookiku) but it wouldn't sell.
Some licensing that I want: Sket dance and beelze... from sj and kaminomi form wss.
