Lost in translation? BBC Sherlock Manga not destined for US release

Sad news for US fans- the BBC Sherlock manga fusion has officially been banned in the U.S. due to licensing issues. The manga, as you can see above, mirrors the original tv episodes. So while there's no new information in them (which is probably part of the licensing issues), the comic would be an excellent addition to any Sherlockian collection.
BBC Sherlock has been hugely popular in Japan- the characters have even made unauthorized cameos in other programs. But the manga adaptation is fully authorized- at least in Japan. Which means it's odd that the books can't be sold anywhere else. Could the BBC already have plans to release a similar comic? Or is this a brand management thing- maybe they don't think that the series would be taken as seriously here if there was a comic version.
While the odds of an official release are slim, fans can use Ebay and Amazon (or an international Tumblr friend) to purchase a copy from private sellers.

5 Struggles Every Shipper Has
Whatever your fandom, the struggle is real. We all know these feels. We might fight in ship wars against each other, we might accidentally insult someone's OTP or be totally confused by each others' obsessions... But at the end of the day fans need to stick together. Because if you ship, eventually you're going to run into these problems. And you'll need someone to commiserate with. 1. You can never find that perfect fic Whether your OTP is the current fandom favorite or an obscure couple only five other people have ever heard of, it can feel like an impossible task to find the *perfect* fic. Sure, you'll read (and love) yet ANOTHER coffee shop au full of tropes you know like the back of your hand, but you'll be craving something more for the rest of your shipper life. And don't even talk to be about that unfinished WIP I've been checking for the past three years. 2. Your Ship > Your Sleep Schedule When is the last time you went to bed instead of staying up late reading fanfiction? Does it feel like never? Because it feels like never to me. You forgo silly mortal needs like sleep for more important things like digging up more images of your OTP, beta-ing just one more chapter, or rolling around in feels. And speaking of feels... 3. EVERYTHING gives you feels Every song on the radio? Written for your OTP. Every time you order coffee? You get the same order as your favorite character. Literally everything anyone says? Your shipper brain will find a way to react to it and you will be overwhelmed by feels. It's a constant barrage and there is no escape. 4. The world doesn't get you And vise-versa. Shippers tend to create our own special language, and we start to speak it exclusively. I can absolutely tell you what "ao3 mcu a:aou abo bdsm ot3 hs au pwp" means, but I have no idea what the Pythagorean theorem is. Look at our lives, look at our choices. (And before you ask, you know you'd read that fic, don't lie). 5. You've got a family for life The shipper family is one of the most welcoming, creative, beautiful groups of people I've ever encountered. There's so much love in this community. We scream and cry and FEEL like the world is ending... and we're all in it together. Whatever your ship, you're always welcome among us. You've always got a home. ... there's nothing like a weird Harry Potter gif to break up the feels parade. Let's show some pride shippers! Anime, Superwholock, HP, Trek, Marvel... How much do you relate to this?
Sherlock is Back (in the Victorian Era)
Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat's Sherlock series has become somewhat of an International sensation. By adapting the classic stories into the world we live in today, Gatiss and Moffat successfully reintroduced Sherlock Holmes to a new generation. And among some online communities it's become somewhat of a joke to always wonder when the next season/series will be coming out. With both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman finding work within the Marvel Universe it sometimes feels like they actors won't have the time to act in a new series. But that doesn't mean we have to wait (too) long for more Sherlock. It looks like we'll be seeing this version Sherlock soon-ish, even though it's a little bit different this time around... And by different I mean in a Victorian Era setting. Which is, well, you know, the same thing but without all the text message words popping up and internetting. Either way though, I'm pretty excited about this Sherlock special. There's something extremely tense about this trailer and that's where part of my excitement comes from. I don't know if it's just me or if I need to watch it a couple more times but it doesn't seem like there is as much humor in this one-shot than there is in the proper series. But I'm okay with this. Part of me wonders if their characters are going to be different than the present-day Sherlock and Watson and how this story fits into the lore of the world. My (uneducated) guess is that it probably doesn't and is just a fun, little side story for the fans. Even though there isn't a definitive release date, the special is coming soon and let's hope it premieres before 2016.
