I'm not 100% clear on this but I believe that, at least on the main site, that Tokyopop is going to try to get back up and running somehow?

Anyone still looking for .hack//GU novel 4 should check amazon and Rightstuf as they currently have copies in.

Indeed theres a newsletter for Tokyopop,hope they get back into manga translating to finish .hack and other series they left unfinished such as Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase, Future Diary and DNangel

For the time being, nobody has a license to publish and sell the .hack mangas and novels in America.

So I been hearing numerous words that Tokyopop has entered some exclusive publishing rights recently on RightStuf and other disturbers on select manga titles. However I have been unable to confirm said statements on Tokyopop's Facebook/Twitter, both of which are updated regularly. Any one have any sources?
