Actually TokyoPop only cancelled my POD order for "Drown in Love 1" due to issue w/ printer but they did manage to ship me "Love Pistols 3" which was also POD. After receiving it yesterday, I feel compelled to write here on my experience. As you can see, they up all the POD manga prices to $14.99 though they are running 30% off grand opening offer now (Love Pistols 3 was originally $9.99 when first issued years ago) and they did take away the color inset from the POD copy too. However, I am more than pleasantly surprised at the quality of the paper they used. Unlike all their
Blu publication that are mostly on those grainy, grayish paper type, these are on the smooth, crisp, white papers - the same as what was used in June's "Ka Shin Fu"! So yes, I am more than happy to spend the current $12 for such book (especially compared to the $30+ currently listing 2nd hand for the original copies elsewhere) I also told them I can't wait until they get the POD printer issues resolved so I can put in order for other OOP titles as well. I fervently hope this POD initiative of them will take off successfully.
