Fans Try To Revive Off*Beat

100 Letters For Off*Beat

After posting about CLAMP_Now’s Appreciation Fanbook, I came across a little fan-run project with the hope of getting 100 letters sent to Tokyopop in order to convince them to publish volume three of the likely-permentantly-postponded OEL manga, Off*Beat by Jen Lee Quick.

While they don’t have much now, I still think it’s a nice fan-effort to let Tokyopop know there’s lots of interest for the third and final volume. Plus, taking a more effort-requiring tactic over the usual online petitions is a nice touch. I really loved the charming mystery story Jen Lee wove, so anything that could cause Tokyopop to reconsider it’s ‘indefinate hiatus’ is worth me noting :)
