Dark Horse Announces Plans for Eden Vols. 11 & 12
Anonymous writes: Production has "slowed" but continues for Eden

Dark Horse editor Phillip Simon has announced on the Dark Horse forums that while production on Eden has slowed, he has received the "green light" to proceed with production on volumes 11 and 12 of Eden.

Volume 10 will be released this May, however no dates have yet been announced for volumes 11 and 12. They are currently working on the translation of volume 11.

In October, Simon suggested that if sales of Eden did not support a quarterly release, the manga might be shifted to a bi-annual (twice a year) release.

Eden was named "Manga of the Year" (2007) in the January issue of Wizard Magazine.

Job Poll
We have a new poll about the job you would take to produce a manga! Vote vote vote~

Previous poll:
Question: For the usual series you read/watch, which of the following do you usually do?

Download from the first group that releases - votes: 6277 (42.7%)
Wait for the best quality release - votes: 2069 (14.1%)
Faithfully follow certain groups - votes: 4154 (28.3%)
Do not care - votes: 2202 (15%)
There were 14702 total votes.
The poll ended: February 16th 2008

As I expected, most people read from the first group that releases. That means for all those Bleach/Naruto groups, whoever releases the newest chapter first wins. I pity Maximum7...
(But as for me, I faithfully follow the groups I love~ Maybe it's because I've worked for a lot of the groups I like...)

Happy Chinese New Year!
As we ARE a site about a very important type of Eastern entertainment, we should celebrate a little bit with the holidays over there too! It's the New Year based on the Lunar Calendar (Chinese New Year to most people). I believe it's the year of the rat...

PS: For the record, I AM Cantonese (a type of Chinese)
