So anyone who's a fan of Ranma 1/2 and Inuyasha knows that not only did Viz produce the dub versions of the anime put they produce the English versions of the manga too.

Inuyasha is long so they even have the "Viz Big" editions of the manga, which includes a good amount of chapters.

So does Viz have rights over the manga too or is just the show? Because I really want English reprints of the kanzenban editions. Also Kodansha said that they would be re-releasing the artbooks...yet we've gotten nothing.

So I wouldn't mind if Viz took control of the manga too because they seem to be all about action.

I don't think so, it doesn't seem to be mentioned in the announcement trailer, interview or the viz website :-/ Not 100% though.

Well that's too bad. I guess we'll have to keep waiting then.

No, Kodansha USA currently has licensing rights over the manga for the english version. They are the ones who released the shinsouban version of the manga starting back in 2011. If the kanzenban were to be released it would be through Kodansha USA.

Seeing that the manga in Japan is handled by Kodansha there, I don't think they will go with a different company here in the US.

Not that I know of.  Small Lady is right though, I do believe Kodansha wouldn't let any other company have rights to the kanzenban version.  I hope Kodansha would decide to release it in english cause I would definitely would want to buy the collection.
