What good WSJ is ready for licensing? Neuro and ToRA should come over, anything else is either licensed or a year away. Old series don't seem to do to well unless there by a well known mangaka. I would like to see SQ series come over. VIZ seems to loves Fujisaki and Watsuki, Shiki and Embalming could be the next Shonen Jump series.

I do get some people preference seinen but there are still good shonen out there that could be done by Viz. Just bring over Neuro (and Kenichi for those who like that series...and maybe ZKC cause I may want to try that) and I'll be happy.
There is good shonen out there but the market was over saturated. Even a year ago that was the only thing getting licensed. There's a lot more variety in book stores now, which has been a lot more fun. It would be nice to see series that there clearly is a market for, like Kenichi or Neuro, licensed.
Nora confused me. Who made that decision? Hard to believe two volumes are already in English. Last year was the year they really cut back, Nora aside their were fewer less known or obscure series like their had been in past years. Now that a number of SQ series have enough volume for licensing, and the new Jump series getting closer, things could change in 2010. Not so sure Sunday will get any help >.<
Now that Yen is starting to license more Gangan series, it would be nice if someone gave Kadokawa Shoten a little more love. Shonen Ace has some amazing series and is virtually untapped. Licensed Deadman Wonderland would be amazing. And I'm still pissed Del Ray continues to ignore ShoMag.
I wish Wild life will be Licenses by Viz or Del
Wild Life by fujisaki masato i love that ... i wonder it will be licenses any time since Wild life have 24 volume (it is completed and not sure 24 volume.)
I vote they won't license anything new. (From Jump that is)
well it's long since over, so by any means you were right randal..... in hindsight.. so not really... but... i'm lost now
