I've been annoyed about the lack of Dazzle releases, possibly because they dropped it without a single word while I had been patiently waiting for the next volume some long while back now. Haven't been able to purchase manga much at all as a result, because I don't have trust in the publishers to actually continue and take it through to the end. It's not nice to own a manga in you collection that won't be completed.

ARIA - volume 6 .... waiting. (there are 12 volumes).

They've never even said boo about it - I've written them a number of times with not even a 'fuck you' in response. Oh, but they would put my email in their junk mail list.

from April:

I'm just damn glad I bought the original Japanese series in total...

Really? Well one of the mangas I own from them is Cardcaptor Sakura, and it still had Japanese culture all over it. Maybe I was lucky?

Well, that series was old, and got spared. As Tokyopop went on, their localization and low quality started to rise. I remember that there were American jokes in the latter volumes of Love Hina, and the last few prints of Rave Master had cheap paper thinner and more transparent than newsprint.

Me, I'll support Del Rey (or whatever they call themselves now) and Viz (because they publish HnG, though at a very slow pace).

Tsukuyomi Moon Phase -- last four volumes (13-16): -- waiting.

Volume 13 was even assigned an ISBN ISBN 1-4278-1161-5 and then postponed with no followup announcements in 2009.
Again, no response to personally written customer inquiries.

Before they took their website down, the comments sections were mostly those of angry customers - no response there either.

Where do y'all get your manga release news? Do you check out individual publishers website or is there a website you prefer that compiles all that stuff? I think there is a sticky one of these forums too?

I'll assume you're referring to English translation releases.
Some people depend on animenewsnetwork. I have bookmarks of the major publishers (or twit/rss feeds). But with all the eyeballs at animesuki watching so many different sources - this site aggregates the data pretty nicely.

For Japanese language manga... typically the anime adaptation gets my attention first and then I go seek out the manga.

I was never a Tokyopop fan, but more manga is more manga.

Hey that's a good point. I guess we gotta be careful to invest in them is all.

Also, I like your title "Never Knows Best"

When they did shut down, what did they do with their productions? Did they drop them all or give em away to another company?

Ah, lol, never mind I found the answer here. In case anyone's interested in reading:
