So i was doing a search earlier for deadman wonderland on amazon and later on ebay. BOTH sites showed a dramatic decrease in the price of the books

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=deadman+wonderland&x=0&y=0

Before for books 1 and 2 they were minimum 20 dollars or higher now are 9.99 and less, vol 4 was worth 10 dollars now only 1.40, and even vol 5 the hardest of hte volumes to find only 12.99 for NEW.

I also did a search with future diary, another tokyopop manga.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=future+diary&x=0&y=0

now i don't remember the exact prices from when i looked before, but most of the books were worth much much more then they are now .

I don't know if this price drop is from tokyopop announcing there return or what, i was wondering if anyone had any evidence that deadman wonderland/ future diary is being continued or reprinted in the US or some over statement that can help reach a conclusion for the sudden drop in tokyo pop manga

There's a larger demand for manga, and more people are wanting the translations to be more faithful to the Japanese languages, and those things make prices go down.

Amazon is probably doing this in order to get rid of their Tokyopop stock because they know they are stuck with them. They can't send them back to Tokyopop and they are just sitting around the warehouses, why not just knock the price down until people start buying them.

I doubt this has anything to do with Tokyopop "coming back" because they haven't really announced they will sell anything and I don't think that it is people waiting around for better translations because 50,000 copies of Sailor Moon were gone in less than 2 months.
