This is torture! Wrrryyyyy?!  
Why is Viz Media making us wait 3 months between each U.S. release of the manga? That is evil.

I got all excited last night and have been excited up until about 5 minutes ago... I went to Viz' site for the new releases and THOUGHT I was reading that vol. 8 comes out on Jun 18. It actually comes out Jul 18th but me and my sleep deprived eyes thought we saw Jun.

But why so long between each release?

Translations take a while, plus if they released too quickly then we would be caught up to Japan's releases and then it'd take even longer to get a single book together.

Look on the bright side: It's not frikin Vertigo/DC where you have to wait SIX MONTHS after a story arc ends to get a trade paperback. (I love the Vertigo line up to death, but DC is terrible with trades.)

According to Viz, volume 8 comes out next month for me. They seem to be giving out one volume, wait a month, then release the next volume. *shrug* I could always wait.

Then again, I have Monster to buy during that month of no releases from Death Note and FMA.
