Tier list for publishers

Top Tier: Raijin. They printed on excellent paper, had cheap prices, weekly serials, and color sections.

High Tier: VIZ. They have sturdy manga and those wonderful cheap price tags. Also a set schedule for all the manga that is easy to find out.

Mid Tier: Tokyopop. Decent paper but the ten dollar price tag and almost random releases make it annoying to follow a series.

Low Tier: Del Rey. The books do look nice but the prices are terribly high and the releases are erratic.

Shit Tier: Dark Horse. flimsy paper, highest price point, and an almost non existent release schedule as if they randomly remember about Berserk then decide to print a new volume.
