So, news dropped today that Del Rey has folded, but that Kodansha USA would be working with Random House as a manga publisher. According to the press release (found here), “Del Rey’s ongoing manga titles which were licensed by Kodansha will be gradually taken over by Kodansha USA Publishing on a per-title basis.” So, it looks like it’ll be a while before we know what’s happening with some favorite manga titles. It remains to be seen what will happen with their light novel series.
Also, can I say, I told you so? (sort of…)
