A Smattering of Manga Release Dates ...

Some of these are already out, but I don't have 'em yet:

Hoshin Engi 8, Aug. 5
Mushishi 5, Aug. 26
Samurai Deeper Kyo 30, Sept. 9
Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service 7, Sept. 10
Hikaru no Go 13, Oct. 7
Hoshin Engi 9, Oct. 7
Wild Adapter 6, Nov. 4
Fushigi Yugi Genbu Kaiden 9 7, Nov. 4 (note corrected vol. no.)
Ouran High School Host Club 11, Nov. 4
Fruits Basket 21, Nov. 11
Bleach 24 25, Dec. 2 (note corrected vol. no.)
Blade of the Immortal 20, Dec. 15

To my dismay, the next xxxHolic (13) isn't due 'til the end of March 2009! And there is no date for Saiyuki Reload 9, and no sign that Shaman Warrior will ever continue ... .

I have some medical appointments tomorrow. Maybe with luck, I'll be able to slip in a visit to a bookstore.

Last I heard new volumes of Shaman Warrior were going to come out next year.

I pre-ordered SDK 30 from RightStuf but there's no sign of it shipping anytime soon. Woe!

Hmmm ... 's matter of fact, this post says Shaman Warrior will finish in 2009, with vol. 9. Woes! I actually like manga series that go on ... it gives me little things to anticipate all the time.

And for that matter, I can't see how all this messy business with Yaki and the true back-story of her parent(s) is going to resolve in only 3 volumes ... .

Oh yeah, sorry, I thought you knew the manhwa was 9 volumes long.

I've seen raws of the remaining volumes and I was kinda, "Eh..." about all of it. And the ending, if I'm correct about what I think happened, made me kind of want to scream. So I'm waiting for you and Megan to read it, blog about it, and then I'll think about acquiring it. What I saw pretty much killed all my interest.

Shaman Warrior was announced to be picking back up again sometime next year. It and Bride of the Water God were on hold while DH was changing editors or translators (I forget which) for their manhwa.

I know Shaman Warrior's delay was a translator issue. Not sure about Bride of the Water God.

Good timing for a bookstore run, btw -- I just ran to get the latest Inubaka that came out a couple weeks ago, and Borders is having another one of their "buy 4, get one free" deals. (So of course the only things I'm really really looking for right now...a couple of older Fumi Yoshinagas and some missing volumes of PSoH...nobody seems to have. Phooey!)

I actually had a couple of the volume numbers wrong in that post! Somehow, either the Borders down on L street wasn't having that sale, or I totally missed the signs. I bought for manga, but ... I got the Mushishi, and the Hoshin Engi, and also two more volumes of Afterschool Nightmare, which I just started recently. But I didn't find SDK until today. It's a really good volume, even though it has no Yukimura at all, except in the extras.

Well, I confess that these are Amazon U.S. dates, but with Tokyopop, certainly, they have almost always been the same - I think they get the stuff from Tokyopop ahead of time and just start selling on the release date. And they seem to be pretty prompt with the other U.S. manga publishers as well, like Viz.

Wow. They're almost up to the Japanese releases of WA! That was so fast.

And normally, you understand, this would be cause for serious panic - after all, who knows when Minekura will release the next volume and/or finish the story. I however am Not Panicking. No siree. Because I have bought every single TP volume so far but not actually read any of them. I see it as storing up supplies in the event of a nuclear fallout; I am prepared for the long period of no WA in my little underground bunker of KuboToki bliss... ^_____^

Wow - such self-control! But that's sad, because I can't talk to you about them!! Have you heard anything else about Minekura and her health, that's making you worry so?

(And how are you doing yourself, BTW?)

25?
Thanks for the list! Isn't that Bleach 25 on 12/2? 24 is already out. I share your dismay at the slow rate xxxHOLiC is coming out.

xxxHOLiC novel 10/28
I don't know if it'll help, but while waiting for the next manga there's a novel xxxHOLiC: AnotherHOLiC illustrated by CLAMP, due out October 28th.

Re: 25?

Eee, you're right! I screwed up that volume number, and also the one for Fushigi Yugi Genbu Kaiden (and I think having to type that title again was enough of a penance ... ).

Yes, and I had just bought vol. 24, too, with Grimmjow on the cover. Thanks for pointing that out!

The xxxHolic thing makes me very crabby. At first, xxxHolic was just enjoyable, an intellectual pleasure. But the story's really grown on me, and the human elements in the last couple of volumes have really touched me. I want to know what's happening!
