Manic About Manga's Wishes for 2010!

Hey! Sorry it's been a while since I've posted. Man, working for a living is for the dogs! My main goal for the new(ish) year is to post at least once a week but preferably more. Having goals in life make it worth living, right?

Actually the point of this post is to make some wishes on what I would like to see in the world of manga and anime. I'm pretty sure none of this will come to pass but a girl can dream. So here is my list of things I would like to see:

  • More titles in English from Shiuko Kano
  • I want to see the third season of Kyo Kara MAOH! (the anime)
  • I want the Kyo Kara MAOH! light novels released in English (according to it states that TOKYOPOP has acquired the license for the novels, what does that mean? I have no clue!)
  • See such awesome manga publishers like Aurora/Deux/LuvLuv and Go! Comi get back on their feet
  • Get the final volume of Magical JxR published and continue on with the releases of Star Project Chiro (you listening UDON?)
  • Find a company that would release the whole Duck Prince by Ai Morinaga series (CPM started it but then dropped the license halfway through and has now gone out of business)
  • Get the fifth book of breath published by Yaoi Generation
  • I would love to see more from the Italian team Dany&Dany
  • Have NETCOMICS release the third volume of Roureville and the final four volumes of Do Whatever You Want (vols. 1-3 are available out of the seven volumes) in print and not just online
  • Find a publisher to bring us the awesome new content in the world of Hajin Yoo's Totally Captivated
  • Have Libre (in Japan) release the rights for Haru Wo Daiteita, plus we would need a US publisher to want to publish it because BeBeautiful is now defunct and won't be bringing us anymore Embracing Love
  • I want more Hyouta Fujiyama
  • Where's my Gakuen Prince Del Rey?
  • And finally more hours in the day and a faster internet connection (we're still in the stone age with our dial up connection around my house)!
That's all I could think of at this particular moment but I'm sure there will be more! What are some of the wishes that you guys would like in the world of anime and manga? And it doesn't have to be yaoi either, it's just that's what I love. Feel free to leave any comments, wishes, etc. in the comments segment. Inquiring minds (at least my mind) want to know!
EDIT: 2/24/2010 - I knew I forgot a few things:
  • Have a company (preferably BLU seeing how they hold the license for the first two) pick up the next two Gakuen Heaven books. The one published after the Nakajima story is my particular favorite out of the four. And I love You Higuri's art.
  • I want more Ellie Mamahara. DokiDoki has picked up one of her titles and Amazon shows that Baseball Heaven will be coming out later this year. But three books aren't going to satisfy me.
OK, I think that's it but I know I'll remember something later and kick myself for forgetting all about it (that's what happened with the Gakuen Heaven thought!)
