And all negotiations with them along with any chances of publishing further volumes of Blood Alone in English are still dead? :/
Thanks for the reply, if there will be ever any petition to Kodansha about you getting the rights to publish Blood Alone again you can count me in.
Kodansha doesn't have the rights anymore either.

I hate to say this, but I wouldn't hold out much hope for the series getting a revival in North America. It's going to be hard enough just getting the Japanese editions.

There are no chances of negotiating this directly with the author (since I'm guessing the rights belong to him now)? He obviously has no plans of ever publishing it outside of Japan on his own so he shouldn't have any objections to it... Or am I missing something?

So this series is dead when it comes to publishing it then?
Even for Europe?

It's not like doujinshi collections have never been published in NA. I hope you guys don't give up on this series.

The publisher change killed any chance of the series continuing in print.
