MangaBlog's Brigid Alverson recently interviewed ADV sales account manager Chris Oarr (the guy in charge of ADV's manga line) for Publishers Weekly, and NewsARama's Benjamin Ong Pang Kean just posted a two-part article about the fallout from TokyoPop's recent restructuring. There aren't many "When will manga X come out in stores?"-style answers in these articles, but they do say that Yotsuba&! and My Dead Girlfriend aren't totally dead, and Meg Cabot's Avalon High series will be finished.

The thought that Avalon High will be finished while far better series languish in licensing purgatory--including my beloved I Wish, a series that #Korean-Manhwa dropped from their scanlation schedule when TokyoPop licensed it, and which has now been removed from TokyoPop's fall schedule--is totally depressing.
