13:01:46 <bay|Ota|Viz> Would ramna ever show up because of nudity in early volumes
13:01:59 <bay|Ota|Viz> A: I know there have been content issues with some current series
13:02:19 <bay|Ota|Viz> We haven't digitally done the ones for ranma because they will have to go back to approval
13:02:22 <bay|Ota|Viz> if we did that, there would be a new t/l and it would have to be flipped
13:02:28 <bay|Ota|Viz> with apple, they don't tell us, they just keep from approving it
13:02:40 <bay|Ota|Viz> that's why we can't announce digital relesaes until the week before until they actually approve it
13:02:44 <bay|Ota|Viz> i think our lead time on it is 6 days
13:03:20 <bay|Ota|Viz> i didn't know ai ore was ready until i left on friday
13:03:35 <bay|Ota|Viz> will ask the digital manga team and see if we can find a way around it using vizmanga.com
