Manga Giveaway: Loveless Giveaway Winner

And the winner of the Loveless manga giveaway is…KenshinGirl!

As the winner, KenshinGirl will be receiving two volumes of Yun Kouga’s manga series Loveless as published by Viz Media—the first omnibus as well as the ninth volume. Loveless was originally published by Tokyopop, which only released up through volume eight. Happily, the license was rescued by Viz Media last year. For this giveaway, I was interested in learning about other license rescues that made people happy. (Check out the giveaway comments for the responses.)

And, because I can, I’ve compiled select list of (North American) English license rescues that have made at least one person very happy. So here are twenty-two manga that got another chance or two in English:
