All that's left if perhaps catching up on old scanlations that I may have downloaded but never read or an occasional new one, but for the most part buying licensed manga has ended. Everything I've been buying has finished or was canceled. I've been importing stuff I read as scans and others I liked for artwork, so perhaps one day I'll pick up the language of Japanese.

All the new licensed manga announced for 2012 so far hasn't interested me and whatever sorts of things I read aren't being picked up. It's all smutty girls, yaoi, and manga that have anime.

Maybe I'll keep up with Saturn Apartments if it wasn't so damn boring.

I love Saturn Apartments though.

I haven't checked out the new licenses for 2012. It'll probably disappoint me like usual.

An About.com writer already compiled a list of her looking forward to list of 2012.

Attack on Titan has some fairly vocal praise from readers of shounen. It at least sold well in Japan and has an animated adaptation coming up at some point.

Japan's government gave Saturn Apartments the award for best manga in their Japan Media Arts Festival Awards.

The lineup doesn't sound too bad so far. Nothing I'd be interested in, or read... but at least not bad.
