The October Line-UpOctober 31, 2012
Holy Moly. You would think it was summertime with an announcement schedule like that. But the new anime season teamed up with the NYCC to make this list huge. As always some really offbeat Discotek releases. They are the prime example of “expect the unexpected.” If nothing else this probably means I won’t have to bust my bum as much as there will probably bit a bit of a lull next month.
The Line-Up is a monthly rundown of newly licensed in the U.S., newly streaming in the U.S., and newly announced anime and manga projects.
