Yeah I noticed it too. I'll be picking up a subscription next week to support the move. I'm glad this is happening, since it means my initial fear of the series being cancelled is now gone, and since there's no info on the next volume release it's the ONLY viable explination.

I hoping for two things with this:

1) Viz fixes up some of their translations: While some things are better in their translations(like using the term mafiosi for mafia members), they make consistent errors,and it's hurt volume sales from what I've heard(I have them all expect Volume 16, since I was waiting for news on what would happen).

2) Viz picks up the anime: For better or for worse, Viz has the best experience woth long running series, and their good about getting their showsTV airings. Since Funimation hasn't made a move on the series, Viz is the next best option(though mostly because I want LA voice actors for the dub).
