    Like I told you in PM, I used to watch the Tenjho Tenge anime but stopped somewhere in the middle when things started backtracking. I'm interested now but they are expensive on ebay. I'll check my local shop and see if they have an better prices.

    I've read TenTen.  I get the feeling that they gave up trying to sensor it. and just upped the rating.  Why they never did that in the first place, I'll never know...  The first volume they removed all signs of rape, and altered it to a physical attack.  Considering that the violence was enough to put the girl into hospital, there seemed little reason to change it from sexual assault to just assault.  Yet a dozen volumes later they were explicit when a girl was kidnapped and bound like something out of Pulp Fiction. 
     
    But yeah, CMX is crap in comparison to the likes of TokyoPop, Del Rey, Viz and even Dark Horse.  The binding was cheap and rubbish, so when you opened it you could hear the spine creasing.  And strangely the covers curled like wet paper.  The size was inferior to most other manga.  They dumped  a huge logo across the middle of the cover artwork, which was visually gross.  The mini posters inserted inside the front cover were usually printed on paper so thin that you could see the image from the reverse side.  If it weren't for the fact that I like Oh! Great's work, I wouldn't have had anything to do with it... ever.
