I'm told this builds character.

As you all know, we here at Wordcandy love Kiyohiko Azuma's manga Yotsuba&! with the fire of a thousand suns. So imagine our chagrin when we discovered that the series' current U.S. publisher (Yen Press) has decided to hold off on releasing volume ten until October.

Seriously, why don't the various publishers of Yotsuba&! ever seem to love us back? Volume ten came out in Japan last November, so why the wait? Is it because Azuma himself is slow to release new material, so Yen would rather space out their releases to match his pace? If so, I really wish they'd stop. If these books are out in Japan, I'd like the earliest possible opportunity to read 'em in English. I know I'll still have long waits between volumes, but trust me: I am way more likely to forgive Azuma himself than I am the American publishing house that sat on the series like Horton hatching the egg.
