    Will do. I'm not on twitter, but I've been thinking of joining. This may be the reason that finally pushes me to do it. Weirdly enough, Coppelion recently moved from being a weekly manga to a monthly. Not sure if this was a move on the editors part as a push for popularity (or lack thereof.) I wouldn't put it past them to move something popular to a less popular mag in hopes of pimping the sales a bit, and at least a part of me hopes this is the reason, but I also wouldn't be surprised if the Earthquake hit Coppelion's fanbase hard, and now it's being sent off somewhere to die.

    I mostly use Twitter as a news feed, every once and a while it's good for interacting with those you used to not be able to interact with.

    Copellion was a victim of current events. It was scheduled to get an anime, until the Fukushima Earthquake. After that I guess the material was deemed to sensitive, production ceased on the anime before a single episode aired, the manga went on hiatus, and resumed in Monthly Young Magazine rather than the higher profile weekly.

    VIZ has announced that they will speed up the release schedule for Bleach, similar to past speed ups for Naruto and One Piece. Two volumes will be released per month through December 2012, ending the speed up with the release of volume 53.

    I'm surprise no one suggested Vinland Saga, it still fit the guidelines since the latest will be volume 12.

    It was there. For some reason it's not there anymore though.. probably a impossible get. (I remember some talks saying kodansha didn't want to license it)

    It seems Vertical really wants the title but its not on their hands. (in twitter)

    That's because of limitations which Vertical Inc. set.

    1. No novels and no titles from Shogakukan, Shueisha or Akita Shoten.
    2. No titles from before 2000.
    3. No titles longer than 12 volumes.

    The third rule actually has one addition, if a series has twelve volumes and it's still ongoing, then you can't vote for it. That's why we can't vote for Vinland Saga, because even now we just know it will have more than twelve volumes. Mr. Yukimura stated in one interview some years ago that he thinks that Vinland Saga will have about 25 volumes. (It's just his guess, don't take it too seriously, we already know how "precise" these statements are. Remember Inoue Takehiko and his guess that Vagabond shouldn't go over thirty volumes? Funny.)

    If we could vote for Vinland Saga, I would be spamming Vertical Inc. twitter account all day long. (I don't have a facebook.) But as far as my informations go, there's supposedly Historie. So I'll pray at least that will get published (Like a dream come true!).
    Huge fan of history and Nordic culture, serious mature stories, Yukimura Makoto, Iwaaki Hitoshi and Tezuka Osamu.

    12:28:38 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> Q: continiuing sayonara zetsbou past 14?
    12:28:53 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> A: that's a hard one... it started off good, and then it plateau'd and then declined
    12:29:01 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> we had to step back and think if it was viable to sustain the series
    12:29:05 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> at the moment it's table is what i'll say
    12:29:08 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> it's really hard to work on
    12:29:23 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> the references, the fact checking, the poor translator who has to work out all the text, and the editor who has to check
    12:29:47 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> it's a really tough book, and for ones that are so time consuming, it's hard to justify it for something that maybe not even breaking even, i don't know the specifics, but i know it was a coern
    12:30:13 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> it's not canceled, it's tabled... we know there are still some diehard fans out there, (missed part)
    12:30:02 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> there are no immediate plans
    12:30:04 <bay|Ota|Kodansha> it's not dead

    I just added Oyasumi Punpun, Kingdom, Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer, and Violinist of Hamelin.
    Would be nice if more people voted especially for Oyasumi Punpun and Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer.

    Vertical can't do Oyasumi Punpun because it is a Shogakukan title, so Viz has priority. Same for Kingdom, which is a Shueisha title. Plus Kingdom is way too long. Vertical has like a 10 volume cap right now.

    Looks like Attack on Titan continues its attack on graphic novels here, with v1 being the best selling graphic novel of October.
