Kodansha has cut ALL ties with Tokyopop, which is a huge blow considering that Kodansha owns the rights to basically all of CLAMP's series, Love Hina, Tramps Like Us, Rave Master, Peach Girl, etc.

Here's an incomplete list of terminated titles, courtesy of Precocious Curmudgeon.

Tokyopop is unable to reprint any of these series or publish any more volumes, so I guess I have to finish a lot of them before it's too late.
