Upcoming Manga Release Dates

You know, the Tokyopop site is a real work of art piece of work. It is nearly impossible to find the release dates page(s), which are now handled as a blog by an account named releasedates. (Also: no news about upcoming releases in any of the three series I checked.) And the Dark Horse site is not much better, despite having a much lower Pointlessly Grunge quotient. DelRey's isn't bad, although they have a major response time issue (perhaps because they are part of the much larger Random House site, which may need to consider a resource upgrade). So far, the best one today has been Viz - that is, if one defines "best" as: it was easy to find the Manga page, easy to find the list of series, and then easy to find the series in which I was interested.

In related news, Amazon's search engine has become unclear on the concept of Vol. vs. Volume. If you search on Manga Title Vol. 3, and the actual listing says Manga Title Volume 3, it craps out - and the same if the situation is vice versa (and both situations exist, which doesn't help). It did not used to be quite so easily confused.

I figured I could probably snag HnG sometime this week if I could only get to the full-size Borders in Silver Spring. I'm also behind on picking up the latest Blade of the Immortal, which came out a couple of weeks ago - Borders might have that as well, or I can order from Amazon.

Thanks so much for checking!

(I used to try to use the little Silver Spring comic book shop - Alliance - but they were rotten about manga. The last straw was the day they were pretty sure they had the latest SDK in one of 3 unopened cases downstairs but wouldn't bother to check ... I would have bought it then and there.)

You are marvelous! I have a feeling an awful lot of other people are wondering about these same titles (all Tokyopop):


  • Saiyuki Reload, vol. 10
  • Wild Adapter, vol. 7.
  • Loveless, vol. 9

smillaraaq was kind enough to lend me all 8 volumes of Loveless and now 'Im thoroughly hooked.

Re Tokyopop - and then there's the whole SDK thing ... Amazon only recently seems to have figured out that the puboisher has changed.

Are you enjoying Silver Diamond? Someone else was recommending it.

I want more Saiyuki so damn much. >sigh<

I'll try to get ISBNs next itme I'm worrying about this!

I got HnG and Black Lagoon tonight, along with the vol. 21 BotI.

(I hope you had a great birthday!)
