So far the additions will be:
Rosario + Vampire Season II
As well as Yu-Gi-Oh! R and Ultimo....so maybe they won't have any others for awhile then.
Forgot about those two. I assume they'll bring over something else next year. Shin Prince of Tennis is definitely coming. Part one was so popular. Mago is a can't miss for U.S. release, action Shonen Jump. It will do well. Sket Dance should have a solid following too.
How are the Gintama sales for VIZ? They could easily figure out if they should license Sket Dance just by looking to how Gintama is doing over here.
U.S. sales figures are undisclosed. Gintama never makes the N.Y. Times manga top. The book store I work at, one of the largest in the country, only stocks the most recent two or three volumes. We always get new ones in, at least. I don't know as that will stop VIZ from licensing other Jump comedy. They seem to license what they like and have realistic sales expectations.

As you can see they will change a lot of currenty running series from regular tankoubon into omnibus. These series will not released apart.
the vizbigz are much cheaper but i always feel like im lifting weights with them
Is Viz going to start publishing One Piece in VizBig editions? I saw this on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/142...3594870_snp_dp and they are also apparently releasing 4-6 at the same time as well. Has there been any news on when the release schedule of the rest (I wouldn't know where to check). I need to plan dammit .
More or less, even though they won't be called VIZBig. There will be four volumes of One Piece: East Blue, each an omnibus with three volumes. They cost three dollars less than VIZbig so I wonder if there will be all the bells and whistles (bigger dimensions, color pages, etc.) If they are VIZBig by another name I would probably get them. If not, no.
If I'm correct it's just 3-in-1, nothing more then that.
Besides the bad cover, the size is like the regular chapters and there are no extra additions to the volumes.
