I'm sure this has happened to everyone: you're collecting a series from Tokyopop, and everything's doing okay, until you get about halfway/near the end, and then the volumes start sssppreeeeeaaaaadddddiiiiinggggg out, to about one every 3 or four months, and something that could've taken a year and a half or two takes damn near three, or some series have even been halted or discontinued, or on hold indefinitely.

That's why I"m so mad about Getbackers, the ONLY series I'm collecting right now...oh, and Fruits Basket, too. I just waited until a great deal of them were out, but it still took me the better part of a year to get to 23, the last volume, and that comes out in July---nearly 4-5 months after 22!

Oh, but they're still cranking out that sad-sack 'manga' of Courtney Love's 'Princess Ai'. Why? Because she's cool with the guy who runs TP, and she's getting royalites off of them. TP says that they're having trouble with profits; stop wasting money on royalties, stop putting the really popular series on hold, and make money!!

But that's just my honest opinion...what do you guys think?

Tokyopop has always spaced out series like that. *has been reading FB since the beginning* They're spreading apart the volumes so that people will have more time to get/check out different series instead of just sticking to one or two.

come on guys .. don't be harsh .. maybe it's in the wrong section but it's still an important issue for all anime\manga fans...
well i think that waiting sooo long for manga volumes makes u really angry *specially when the series is so good & the excitement increases .. well they have to figure a solution

tokyopop was never good, hell they had no idea what manga really meant
they only got a few good titles but almost 50% are not even manga just plain old comic version of a american cartoon show...god they even have spongebob listed as 'ANI-MANGA'

I think that it has more to do with the cost of production right now than anything else.

Oh, luckily do I don't buy the ones from Tokyopop. I only buy the ones from Kana, Glenat, and Viz.
