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?

this is why I can never, never leave the northeastern seaboard. because even ten years ago when I was desperate to find anime or manga, all it meant was an hour's trip to NYC to find what I was looking for. Sure, not in my town, but relatively close.

now, I'm down in MD and fortunately, the Borders in Columbia (which is smack dab between Baltimore and DC) has a large manga section, and, as someone else pointed out, they must be stocking their shelves as soon as they get their shipments in as there is no penalty imposed by the publisher for distributing the books early.

and, when i can't find things, then I just be patient and order them online . . . gives me something to look forward to in the mail (as in, getting something other than bills!).

and, if it's really, really killing you, there's always scantilations . . .
