TOKYOPOP Acquires Goth

Post by sterling01 »

TOKYOPOP has acquired distribution rights to Otsu-ichi's mystery novel Goth and its one-volume manga adaptation created by Kendi Ohishi. Fox Atomic has hired video game writer J.T. Petty to adapt and direct an American live action film adaptation of the Goth novel about two "goth" teens that partner to solve six murders in their hometown.

The Goth manga adaptation will hit shelves in September with an 18+ age rating and a $10.99 retail price. The original novel will retail at $12.99 beginning in October.

So... Are we going to label this project as on-hold, suspended, dead?

has this been confirmed?

if it is true, so be it.

I think it's more or less an unwritten rule to just let the project stand, possibly label this as "stalled".

When the first volume is publish i considering locking the related scripts, to prevent people from blatantly copying the published translation over ours.
"Please note, we have added a consequence for failure.Any contact with the chamber floor will result in an unsatisfactory mark on your official test record, followed by death. Good luck."

The novel has been published, therefore all content on the wiki, save the 1st chapter which I will leave as a teaser, will be purged.
