Via Anime Insider: NBA/Tokyopop Media Deals (August 2004)

This article details a very weird tie-in between Tokyopop and the NBA that totally happened, as well as corporate sponsorship for viz’s shonen jump.

I mean, I like the NBA, and I love manga, but I don’t know what the market is here. They made 12 volumes, though, so maybe that actually did well?

    • Glad to hear you’re enjoying them. They’re really easy to do since the magazine is undersized (unlike Newtype), so I only ever have to scan a page once. I’ll continue to upload this stuff for a while, since I’m only like a quarter of the way through the magazine’s run right now.
