More on Tokyopop and Viz at AX

I wrote up a quick summary of Tokyopop’s Anime Expo panel at MTV Geek (based on the transcript—alas, I wasn’t there), and Deb Aoki has a thorough analysis at her blog as well. At Comics Worth Reading, Johanna Draper Carlson looks at the mixed signals Tokyopop CEO Stu Levy is sending out regarding their original graphic novels.

And Viz had a few things to say at Anime Expo as well: They will be rolling out an Android version of their manga app, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal will join the Shonen Jump Alpha lineup in July.

At Manga Bookshelf, we discuss our Picks of the Week. I’m ready for some summer reading!

Matt Blind compiles his latest list of manga best-sellers (online sales), this one for the week ending May 13.

Reviews: Ash Brown takes a look at a week’s worth of manga reading at Experiments in Manga.

  1. Every time I see AX in the title I jump out of my chair thinking it might be about AX vol.2. ))

  2. Too bad Viz won’t be releasing Hayate the Combat Butler on a faster basis.
