Just looking through it again with Manga giving away Soul Eater posters at their Expo stall, could Soul Eaters be surprise license by Manga at the EXPO?

Does Manga have license each series of Bleach when they want to release it?? Are there going to be any more releases after series 5?

It varies how well bleach sells for series 6 and beyond to be licensed. In an Manga UK interview it was mentioned that Bleach was their second best seller behind Naruto. So the signs are good but with series 4 and 5 being filler it may cut into sales somewhat.

For the other question if I understand you correctly big series like bleach who have not finished their TV run are licensed in sections. As its a bit tricky to license something in full when you don't know how may episodes are to be made. Also it risk to licenses too many episode of big series at once in case the series become a sales flop.

Sweet!I'll be there to get a Soul Eater poster for sure!It would be cool if Manga announced they had Soul Eater,that would make both the U.S and U.K releases come out round the same time(meaning for once we wouldn't be behind!).

I hope that Manga have licensed Soul Eater. But even if they have they mite not release it til the middle of the year as they already have D.Gray-man listed for release in the first quarter as well as a few other shonen titles. It would be nice if they have licensed one or two other Funimation shows too, like Spice & Wolf. Although i may be hoping for too much.
