One of CMX's initial launches was a title variously known as Tenjo Tenge, Tenjho Tenge, and Ten Ten. When CMX released Tenjho Tenge, many fans were livid that title had been edited contentwise and changed graphically to appeal to a "larger demographic"—in other words, edited to be acceptable to bookstores without shrinkwrap. Tenjho Tenge and CMX received a heavy amount of angry backlash for the edits.
CMX's announcement that all changes had been overseen and specifically approved by Oh! Great, the manga artist, did nothing to appease the vocal fans who did not want the work censored. Some readers suggested a boycott of all CMX titles.
In the face of complaints, CMX had internal discussions about the possibility of publishing an unedited version of Tenjho Tenge, but decided to complete the current version. At the 2007 Anime Expo, CMX announced that it planned to change Tenjho Tenge's rating to Mature beginning with volume fifteen, but warned that it still would be edited, but more lightly.
On May 18, 2010, DC Comics released a statement announcing its intention to shut the CMX brand down, with no new titles being published after July 1, 2010. At the time of its statement, DC could not state what would happen to all current unfinished volumes affected by the July 1st shutdown date. Megatokyo however continued under the DC Comics imprint.
