That Twilight manhwa is going to hit it big. Speaking of which, has anyone seen raws of that? I wouldn't mind taking a peek ^^
Comic Con announcements:
VIZ: Bakuman, Toriko, Vampire Knight (anime), Kekkaishi (anime) and Inuyasha Kanketsu - hen (anime).
Yen Press: Romeo x Juliet, Usagi Drop, Sasameke, Omamori Himara, Fujoshi Kanojo, Darker Than Black, Otometeki Koi Kakumei Love Revo!!, Dragon Girl, Natsukashi Machi no Rozione, Kobato
Viz sure didn't waste any time on the new Inuyasha anime. XD
Nice to see Darker than Black licensed as well. Been meaning to get around to that series for a while now.
I want to watch the anime; I'll pass on the Darker Then Black manga. I'm looking forward to Usagi Drop, glad it was licensed.
Viz Media Europe's website has "Neuro" listed as one of its anime/manga properties.
Interestingly enough, there are two websites for Viz Europe, vizeurope.com and devvizmedia.megalos.net, with Neuro being found on the later. Since Megalos is responsible for the current design of the Viz Europe website, you can infer that they are currently beta-testing the new additions (or something).
I'll buy DW if it comes out in English.
