Its either in limited supply or not even shipped, I had my copy pre-ordered on amazon and it just never came, I ended up canceling a few weeks ago. I'm really pissed off about it too.

Lol TokyoFail!! Love it!!

Unfortunately the Fourth novel was never released & is still yet to see the light of day. It was scheduled to be released in December last year as you mentioned, but has simply never materalised.
TokyoFail never even bothered with any form of news release or official reason as to why the novel is delayed. To this day, no official word still hasn't been released, so fans are still left wondering if the FMP novels are simply 'delayed' for an indefinate amount of time or if indeed Tokyofail has cancelled the series?!
Which for me, owning my own company, is a HUGE Business no-no & Profit-killer. Never piss off or alienate your target audience - especially in such harsh economic conditions like we are enduring now!! Always keep your audience informed, be it good or bad news, otherwise your audience simply will not come back!! This complete lack of acknowledgment is also extremely frustrating & unprofessional.
Everything was all set to publish the 4th novel - a ISBN was allocated to the new product, release dates organised with different online stores & a publishing date confirmed......................................... ..but then nothing!!
Going back through Toykofail's product history, this unfortunately is not the first time the company has done this - Scrapped Princess comes to mind straight away as like FMP, only 3novels were ever published with a 4th scheduled but never released.
Does anyone have anymore info. on the English novels?

That is what pieces me off about Licencin companies. They try to force fans like us not to seek Fansubbed or translated series, while they FAIL to give us a better product. Not only are Fanstuff FREE but they are also UP TO DATE, we dont have to wait 10 years to get the newest release and so on. That is something I really just cant accept from companies.

The last time I checked some random forum regarding the english version novel was that the translator (Duane something) got laid off in the major retrenchment did by Tokyofail higherups. This is unconfirmed of course, since I found no official statement regarding this.

That is just it mate - nobody knows because Tokyopop have never bothered to let us, the fans, know what their intentions actually are.
