    That viz cover actually looks pretty packed consider how bare some of their versions of the group ones end up. Combining the two pages into one definitely helped them.

    It's also help that in the past, most female characters exist as love interests that only appeared for 5 pages out of 1000 chapters without any character developments. In Saint Seiya, Jojo, Otokojuku, etc etc etc, you get two men crying, hugging and ready to die for each other. Meanwhile, the female characters ready to slit each other's throats because they like the same guy. It feels like the mangaka put female characters so they can create straight romance and maybe producing baby for the next generations sequel.

    What I find funny is.. there's a term for women and men that like BL, but no for men/women that like yuri.

    They should have gotten Yuragi tbh. TLR has 18 volumes, darkness has 18 volumes. Yuragi has 5. Can't complain I guess.

    If it does well they will probably pick up Yuragi. Time to sell my TLR import :XD.

    TLR has no anime to boost it (or increase more exposure), Yuragi will probably receive an anime.

    I remember a time where Viz was bold enough to license I's and ten pussed out its release with edits. Hard to believe it took more than a decade for TLR to make it overseas and by a different company no less.

    A bunch of questions about TLR on Seven Seas Tumblr. One of the asked if it will be censored and Seven Seas answers that they never censor artwork.

    Eww it will be published as omnibus, make sense though. Might have to bite my tongue and get it hopefully if it does well they will take Yuragi. Guess I will hold off buying Yuragi volumes for now :p (I hate omnibus tanko).

    Looks like Viz is losing their A game, Which is funny since hasn't licensed any worthwhile shonen or Seinen manga in a long time.

    VIZ had a couple of announcements today and I lost any hope when they announced The Art of My Little Pony. XD
    But you know, I think they don't have much choice... What they have to license besides what they already have in ESJ and Magi, the only manga worth of their time in Sunday?

    Most definitely, and Kodansha USA is moving to mostly digital releases.
