Happy Holidays!
Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Festivus, or whatever other god fearing holidays there are this time of year! Well whatever holiday/tradition it is you're celebrating over the next few days (or have been celebrating over the past few days/weeks) hope you enjoy the abundance of manga releases that usually occur around this time of year. Some groups/people seem to have started early if you've been paying attention. Well of course manga isn't what's really important this time of year but the gist of it is enjoy time spent with family and friends. ANd hopefully get some time off work/school. Be safe out there and take care. We here at MangaUpdates and BakaUpdates wish you and yours all the best! May the next few days (at the very least) be kind to you.

DN Angel is back from hiatus?
bozou writes: According to SUGISAKI Yukiru's (the author of DN Angel) website, the series will continue again starting again on December 22, 2007 after a long haitus (that has lasted for over two years). As before, the series will be serialized in Asuka, the monthly shoujo magazine of Kadokawa Shoten.

Note: Apparently the blog was updated November 22, 2007, but no one reported it to sorry for the late news!

NinjaBuzz To Cease Naruto Anime and Manga Distribution
NinjaBuzz Staff writes: Due to a numerous spam attack and cyber stalking over the last year by a user whom simply identifies themselves as Stephan Fry, Ninjabuzz will stop distributing the Naruto Anime and Manga series by January 1st 2008, this will give the users in our community time to adjust with the cease and removal of all Naruto releases from NinjaBuzz, it will also allow our affiliates time to find new consistent sources for distribution purposes.

NinjaBuzz sincerely thanks all affiliates whom continued supporting our releases over the last couple years. NinjaBuzz whom were formerly NarutoBuzz successfully made over 100+ releases of the Naruto Manga and every episode of Naruto Shippuuden to date. We thank everyone that enjoyed our releases, and could care less what the leechers with shameless comments can and will say. We are now endorsing MangaShare as an alternative source for Naruto Manga and obviously Dattebayo will now be the only group doing the Anime consistently yet again. We would just like to state that this decision was not rushed.

The Cyber stalker/Hacker/Spammer has made numerous attempts to contact members of the NinjaBuzz team, he has hacked the server gaining remote access (1 week ago) and has continued a massive spam attack against us. Just so you know the government created internet watchdog groups would not give the time of day to deal with a matter such as ours and because of that and us honestly being tired of all the crap are effectively stopping the releases. Keep in mind we are not closing, it will still recieve news and updates and hopefully become a media outlet like Narutocentral, however that is all and if the attacks continue the website will be taken offline as well.

You can find more information regarding our closure at
