Oh man, and I just LOVED Koi Cupid. Sad that they only managed to get one volume off.

I just looked at their website and they still had some volumes that were due
to be released for some of their series.
Wonder if another other company will buy them out for the titles?

I bet it would depend on the title, and how the previous titles sold. If the expected revenue gained by releasing the rest of the series doesn't outweigh the costs of acquiring the license from them, no company would pick it up as "charity" to the fans.
