Studio Proteus sold to Dark Horse 

A press release just came out announcing that Dark Horse bought the rights to titles done by Studio Proteus. Toren also makes a brief appearance here. This explains why the studio's website was announced as being shut down a week or so ago (seems like it may be down already).

So, I don't know how I feel about it yet. It is interesting that DH is getting more active into manga and it does seem difficult for a small company like Proteus to keep up. However, their titles did have amazing production values. Toren says he'll do some limited translating, but I take it production itself will be done by DH employees? Does this mean stuff will come out faster? Will things be changed to be unflipped at a cheaper price? Will quality go down? It is all hard to say at this point...
