Open thread: Kodansha requests

October 8, 2010

Count me among those who were disappointed that Kodansha canceled its panel at this year’s New York Comic-Con and Anime Festival. It offered a bit of hope that the publisher’s torturously slow U.S. rollout might pick up some momentum and that we might get some concrete indications of what would happen next.

I’ve devoted a number of these license requests to Kodansha titles. They’ve featured demon kids, magic girls, economists, Vikings, foodies, sommeliers, Borgias, supreme beings, salarywomen, eggplants, Tezuka, post-apocalyptic diners, and many other types and topics.

This Friday, I thought I’d open it up to your Kodansha wishes. What as-yet-unpublished titles would you like to see licensed? What previously published titles would you like to see rescued from out-of-print limbo?
