I just saw a news article
at ANN saying that The World of Narue
manga was ending. That surprised me mostly because I thought that it had ended a long time ago.
It started about 12 or 13 years ago and CPM Manga dropped it six or seven years ago after volume four. Apparently it had a very slow release schedule, averaging about one volume per year in Japan.
I am now wondering if there is a chance that another North American publisher might pick it up.
It was published in Kadokawa Shoten and I think that every North American publisher has licensed something from them. All of the various Haruhi
titles that Yen is publishing are from Kadokawa Shoten.
The World of Narue
started so long ago that is seems old, but it is just now finishing, which makes it seem new. So I don't know how that would influence a decision.
It will probably end with 13 original volumes, which will make it a bit long for some publishers. I think that Adam Arnold has said that Seven Seas is not interested in anything over 10 volumes.
And I do not know if either the anime or manga was popular enough here.
I love the anime and enjoyed the four volumes of the manga that I have read, so I really do hope that somebody will take a chance on it.
