Now, how come the Elfen Lied manga hasn't been released in the US despite the anime being popular enough here? I mean similarly violent, disturbing and racy works such as Berserk, Gantz, and Hellsing have been released but why not Elfen Lied. It's been slightly over a decade since it came out in Japan yet it hasn't been released in the US whilst it has been released elsewhere?! (Even the series has been released in neighboring Mexico). Given that it's published by Shueisha, the most likely candidates to release the manga in the US are either Viz Media (since Shueisha owns it alongside with Shogakukan) or Dark Horse Comics (even better since they released the ultra-violent fare mentioned above such as Berserk, Gantz, and Hellsing).
