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?

I don't even think there are any Borders in Canada and I think with Viz, everything arrives here in Canada months later. I think Vol 1 of Black Cat was released back in February? It never showed up in my neck of the woods until April/May. (Mind, it could've been popularity but all the bookstores I asked were like "Hm. Yeah...we were supposed to have gotten it XX months/days ago but nothing yet" *shrugs*)

Volume 8 might not rear its head until July here either.

Mind, the French ver. of vol. 8 won't come out until September and vol. 9 until November so...

Viz can be very, very random in Canada. I think that the books come in large orders, at least with Chapters stores, so when new volumes of one series come in, they all come in.

Volume 6 of FMA was really late (almost a month or so), but Volume 7 was right on time.

Monster 1 and 2, on the other hand, showed up almost a month early.
