Here's some technical notes for people looking here about Tokyopop/BLU info:
1. TP will own the licenses of the books they had previously listed until the license runs out. I very seriously doubt TP will just release the licenses right now, even though it could do that. That means that DMP will not have a chance to rescue any of the TP licenses until they expire, and we don't know how long that is. So, don't expect rescue news anytime soon.
2. TP's media arm is still open, which means if any of the book licenses included media rights, TP has the right to develop media based on the license. This could mean movies, TV shows, podcasts and who knows what else. I wouldn't hold your breath for BLU titles to be developed, but you just never know. I'm pointing this out because if TP does any developing of a license, there's usually a clause that will then extend the license. TP might do insanely small things with a book title just to maintain the license. Tread lightly on any future TP offerings, book or media.
3. We are unlikely to see English-language books from the German TP. Don't get your hopes up for that; Deb's article didn't imply that to me. However, I would love to eat crow on this!
4. DMP has said in the past that it's rare to make money on re-releasing books that have already been published by another publisher. Both Finder and Kizuna are insanely popular titles, and Kizuna had the benefit of having new omnibus editions for DMP to license and, thus, offer fresh appeal to old fans. Keep your eye out for Junjou Romantica and Love Pistols omnibuses in Japan; I think that might be our only hope for those titles. You Will Drown in Love and other series, I'm thinking are 50-50 in terms of appeal to DMP. The more volumes of You Will Drown in Love past #2, the better; Hinako Takanaga seems popular enough that DMP might pursue the series eventually, especially if it ends with a medium number of volumes. <------note: These are just my educated guesses. The point is, you might want to temper your expectations of DMP on rescuing titles.
If I think of anything else, I'll say so. I'm very sad for the remaining TP staff, freelancers, and us readers.
