Tokyopop founder Stu Levy was quoted in a widely-circulated newsletter for GeekChicDaily stating: “GeekChicDaily and its daily, opt-in format provide the perfect opportunity to revive the original Tokyopop concept with a refreshed approach. The time is right for a well-balanced Asian pop culture publication with a West-looks-East perspective. We couldn't be more thrilled to continue the Tokyopop brand and its contribution to pop culture with GeekChicDaily."
This talk of reviving the “original Tokyopop concept” raised the hopes of some fans that Tpop would return to manga publishing, but a notice posted on Tokyopop’s Facebook page clarified the former publisher’s intentions: “unfortunately we are not re-launching the manga -- those properties have reverted to their owners and are amazingly difficult to get back. We’re launching an all new editorial Tokyopop newsletter about all things otaku and Asian pop-culture, powered by our friends at GeekChicDaily.”
