I was wondering what to make, but I have been hesistant in making new threads because I remember seeing an issue in Screened when Acura Max and I were making discussion threads for Screened. Since there were not much activity on discussion threads, folks ask us to stop making discussion threads for Screened because it reminded them how empty it was.
Manga discussion forum is active but only in a few threads. It's not dead. However, obscure shows and monthly franchises are not as active compared to the battle, weekly shonen series' discussion threads.
I'm not an avid manga reader. I'm a heavy anime watcher.
Thanks for the advice. I will ask you to try to capitalize your titles and fix the format a bit in your threads. You should prioritize active manga series rather than the inactive ones due to them getting more comments generally.
New manga series - I don't think we have a name for this.
Ah My Buddha's Toshinori Sogabe Launches New Scrapped Princess Manga
Kadokawa's Comic Clear website launched a new manga based on the Scrapped Princess novels by Ichiro Sakaki (Chaika the Coffin Princess, Outbreak Company) on October 14. Toshinori Sogabe (Ah My Buddha, Amaenaideyo!!) is illustrating the series based on Yukinobu Asami's original character designs.
The series' first chapter is available for free on the Comic Clear website. The next chapter will debut on November 11.
Tokyopop previously published all three volumes of Go Yabuki's 2002 manga adaptation in English. Tokyopop also published part of Sakaki's original novel series, and described the story of the first novel:
Fourteen years ago, a dark and devastating prophecy was revealed: a girl will bring about destruction and death and the world will lie in ruins. A decree was handed down to destroy this baby girl and all evidence of her prophecy to come but despite all efforts, the myth lives on...and so does the Lost Princess. Fourteen years later, the prophesized destroyer of the world is alive and well! Will she doom all and destroy the world or will she defy the gods and prove them wrong?
Sakaki published the original 13-novel series and the 5-volume Scrapped Princess Supplement series from 1999-2005. The novels inspired an anime adaptation in 2003 from Studio BONES. Bandai Entertainment released the series in North America, but its license expired in 2011.
Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
