Mania: 20 Must Have CMX Manga

Mania writes: "What began as an attempt to catalogue the CMX Essential Bookshelf has sadly become a eulogy. CMX, DC Comics' manga imprint, started out on the wrong foot with most manga fans. It had acquired the rights to mangaka Oh! Great's Tenjho Tenge, a violent, hyper-sexualized action series, but had decided to censor it to appeal to a larger "demographic". A former ero-mangaka, Oh! Great was known for his detailed, vibrant, and sexualized art, so many fans felt that CMX was changing what gave the title its appeal. Its attempt to water down TenTen into a mass-market Naruto clone seemed a cynical, opportunistic move, for which a segment of fandom never forgave them."

The story is too old to be commented.
