Following the closure of DC’s CMX manga imprint, one of the questions on the minds of fans was what would happen to the series they had licensed, including Tenjho Tenge.
At the time, DC co-publisher, Jim Lee, hinted that Dark Horse had expressed interest in licensing CMX’s properties. Unfortunately, this didn’t quite work out. In a recent episode of Anime News Network’s ANNCAST podcast, Michael Gombos, the director of Asian licensing at Dark Horse, revealed that another company had beaten them to grabbing the publishing rights to Tenjho Tenge in the U.S.
CMX had published 18 of 22 volumes of the series before being closed. No other publisher has announced publishing rights to the series as of yet.
