If you remember, ADV went down two or three years ago. Now, in North America at least, manga/light novel publishing giant Tokyopop is gone...

A sad day for all us otaku.

From what I've heard within the industry about Stu levy, I'm not surprised at this news.

The Eagle

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

Yeah they hadn't really picked up any new licenses in a while a let some of their others peter out into nothingness...it was only a matter of time.

The challenge is getting good licenses...I understand marketing and all that but it seems like there aren't many imports from any of the big, sought-after series in the last couple of years.

There's still Yen Press and Seven Seas for us GSG fans I guess though...

Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.
