All the Titles Fit to License, 2015 Edition

December 7, 2015

Not a year goes by without a few surprises. Everyone will remember where they were when they heard that, first, the Legend of the Galactic Heroes novels were licensed, then the anime was licensed mere hours later. Big sports series are finally, finally getting another chance in the U.S. with Kuroko’s Basketball, Haikyu!!, and Yowamushi Pedal manga all being picked up. Yen Press decided to up the light novel game here in the U.S. with long-running titles like Durarara!! and Baccano! among others.

In years past, the ratio of anime to manga licenses was pretty even, but 2015 has seen a sharp departure from that. With a little more than 130 anime licenses, manga easily trounces anime with more than 200 titles picked up. This is probably due to many more digital only releases of manga.

As a reminder, this list does not include streaming-only anime and manga. And as always, let us know if we missed anything.
