lybriinth6 karma

Thank you for doing this AMA, Kodansha. My question is: how do you decide what series to translate and bring to North America? I know it's obviously based on sales and popularity in Japan first and foremost but I was very surprised when the announcement that No.6 would be published was made earlier this year. I'm a huge fan of No.6 (and have bought all the volumes out thus far!) but I was surprised that it was coming overseas considering the borderline shounen ai content of it. How was that decision made?
