I hope you're not that out of the loop that you know that YK has been with Kodansha now since last March. :shock:

Viz is a Shueisha/Shogakukan imprint and vol. 16 was published by Kodansha. Even though they having been putting out BAA since the early '90s, I really doubt that Viz will be able to publish any LO from vol. 15 on and I can't imagine that the parent companies would negotiate with Kodansha to license from vol. 16 on back to them. Kodansha has already been republishing LO as the LO New Edition anyway so to me this indicates that all of LO now has shifted over to them. My guess is that if Kodansha does decide to continue with LO in English that they will release it under their Kodansha Comics USA label UNLESS the licensing agreement with Viz allows them to still publish LO even if the Japanese publisher changes. However looking at their website now (http://kodanshacomics.com/titles.html) and ANN's entry for LO (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclo ... hp?id=2615) there is nothing at all yet about an eventual English release so like the time of the hiatus going back to 2010 we will have to wait and enjoy the releases here in the meantime.

I suspect there is a copyright problem here. I have no idea about USA laws on copyright, but once Viz changed the title of the work and even of the main character, will the successor be authorized to use them or do they belong to Viz?

More eccentrically, maybe the new publishers will do the same that is made in Japan, that is, reprint Last order from the beginning, this time using the correct names.

My god, has it been a year already? I remember going into an existential panic when he went on hiatus for those several months during conflict with Shueshia. :lol:

French edition is frozen too. kind of sucks. But i'd be happy if Glenat lose the right, because really their work on GLO is sub par. mirrore, no colour pages, wonky translation, missplaced texts, some missing pages. yeah, I can live without them.

Once you have someone replacing them, I think.
