Hello, I have been waiting for 12 Kingdoms: Aspiring Wings to be published since the California branch closed during Economic Crisis of 2010. Could someone consider starting this series up again or something? Thanks. - Dedicated 12 Kingdoms fan
Any chance of you guys picking back up some of your old titles that the other publishers didn't grab? A decent amount of your old licenses were obscure online and even scanlators never finished them.
Bringt die alten Bleachbände bitte für eine kurze Zeit zurück. Diese 2 ins 1 mögen ja gut sein für neueinsteiger aber würde die alte Serie gerne beenden können und so alt war es nicht, dass man die Produktion schon einstellt.
TOKYOPOP Deutschland ich habe gehört das ihr Keri Kusabi zur LBM/Mcc mit bringt, wie wird das mit den Autogrammen ablaufen? Wird es eine Vorab Verlosung geben?

Hey TokyoPop! Do you own the license to Kii Kanna’s Umibe no Etoranze? Would love to see a US copy for purchase!
Any possibility of bringing back Happy Cafe? i have been waiting so long :)
Are your Masterpiece editions going to be English translations of the Japanese editions? Will you be doing all 7 volumes of the Masterpiece editions, or just releasing the volumes corresponding to the volumes you released?
