TOKYOPOP closing North American operations

Posted this in the Anime and manga sub-forum but I'll re-post it here as well:

TOKYOPOP is Closing Down!

Quote
For nearly 15 years, TOKYOPOP, led by Stu Levy, its founder, CEO and Chief Creative Officer, has pioneered the English-language manga movement and touched the hearts, minds and souls of enthusiasts worldwide.

Today, we are sad to inform our loyal community of manga fans, our passionate creators of manga content, our business and retail partners, and other stakeholders who have supported us through the years that as of May 31, 2011, TOKYOPOP is closing its Los Angeles-based North American publishing operations.

TOKYOPOP film and television projects and European operations, including the German publishing program, will not be affected by the Los Angeles office closure. In addition, TOKYOPOP will continue its global rights sales via its office in Hamburg, Germany.

The TOKYOPOP website and forums will be shut down on the 26th. I invited the members of the forum to come here and see if they want to make CapturedWings their new home.

2 days early but the site no longer exists! It was fun while it lasted.

Arc! The site's really down early. :( I'm disappointed.
(It's Yampuff btw, this is my old account from our little roadtrip back when)

You sure you don't want to join us in Ashikai's or Toast's forum? I don't know about anyone else but I'll sure miss you, you're a great guy and have been an awesome mod at TPF.
