Retailers will love this… as announced at the Tokyopop Otakon panel:
Tokyopop will be moving several of its manga to online exclusives, which can only be ordered from Tokyopop.com. Currently scheduled titles for this exclusivity are Atomic King Daibogan, Neck and Neck (starting with volume 6), and The One.
I’d love to hear more about what prompted this decision… That’s the final volume of Neck and Neck, and One completes with book 11, while book 10 is listed for order. Were sales not strong enough to complete those series otherwise? Or is Tokyopop just aiming to take a bigger cut of the cover price?Similar Posts: Reaction to Tokyopop Online Exclusives § Another Tokyopop Title Returns: RightStuf to Release Bizenghast 8 § Interview With Dan Hipp, Author of Gyakushu!, Former Tokyopop OEL Manga Posted Online § Tokyopop Brings Back Some OEL Manga Online; Kat & Mouse Publish Date § Tokyopop Releases Hetalia Digitally a Month Before Print
