I did read the manga up to chapter 9 online, does it go past there? Im not going to ask for a link since its against the rules, but do the books go past chapter 9?  where tokio meets haseo? and where is volume 4? they cant possibly finish in 3 books.

They never finished it, it was dropped when the writers began working on Link the game and never finsihed it. It's only 3 volumes long, and has no ending.

Kind, but the manga has a very different story from the game and no ending.

Even if they were, it probably wouldn't be translated by Tokyo pop with the current situation. Hopefully another company might take over if they do manage to get back to working on it.

They may be, one never knows. They continued G.U.+ after it first ended and it actually had a proper ending within the first 3 volumes, so it's not impossible for there to be an ending to Twilight Knights.

One would know, it's manga. It doesn't just materialize, it's run chapter by chapter in a magazine. In most cases the graphic novel is like a dvd release of a series that already happened.

I meant that they might start serializing it again, not that *poof* volume 4 would appear. : (

Is .hack//LINK being continued in Japanese?
Or did they stop that too (English was stopped after Tokyopop shutdown right?)?

No. There has not been an announcement for the manga since it was canceled.

Awwww, this thing was cancelled? Damn it!

Now I wonder if there's any point in picking up the manga at a bookstore. I wanted to start on it because I thought it sounded interesting, but this sucks.
