Happily... Never Ever?

With CMX pulling the plug, there are several shojo series that we here in the states may never see come to a conclusion. I have just really gotten into some of these titles in the past year, and am so disappointed we will never get the final volumes.

I am most disappointed by the loss of Apothecarius Argentum - There was only one more volume!!! I just wanted to read the ending due out in July!

Venus Cappriccio - This one was just getting really good with volume 3. We'll get volume 4 but then no more. Ughh!

n - A shame to lose such a classic shojo. This series still had six more volumes until the final.

Stolen Hearts - a new favorite of mine for 2010, and now there will only be 2 volumes.

Here's a link to the current line of CMX titles, some of which will never see the light of day here in the states.
*5/25 Update: DC already trashed the CMX site. So I re-linked ANN for a list of titles.

It's really disheartening that a major company like DC couldn't have done more for CMX. They published some really fantastic shojo titles - Emma, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, From Eroica With Love, and Land of the Blindfolded to name a few.

That's why it's important to buy the books, fellow shojo manga lovers. That's all I'll say.

A more comprehensive list of CMX titles would be the AnimeNewsNetwork page:

There’s quite a few missing titles on the Wiki.

Thanks, Daniel! I went ahead and fixed that.

Venus Capriccio is awesome. Made me so disappointed when CMX went down under!
