I think they decided on the name because a lot of aspiring comic artists over here have strong manga and anime influences and will in turn be attracted to the product because of that. The more serious comic artists that have already been drawing traditionally like us will know Manga Studio is a relabeled Comic Studio and we'll get it because of that. I think with this name, they have a better chance of getting both the diehard artists as well as teenagers just starting to dabble.
I still prefer "Comic" Studio though.
Hey guys, just wanted to let everybody know it's available for purchase at the e-frontier site and copies should be hitting brick and mortar stores next month.
About damn time. Now I gotta wait on the Mac release, which is slated to come out after the PC version.
