We are posting this list a little early in the hopes it can be helpful to people making year end lists and the such. We’ve included all anime, manga, artbooks, light novels, and successful crowdfunding projects for the U.S. on our list. We’ll update the list as the month goes on in case companies have some holiday surprises in store.
There were nearly 200 anime licensed or rescued in 2013, pretty incredible. And almost half of those were from Sentai Filmworks. Big light novel pick-ups were some of the surprises this year as well as AnimeSols dedication to bringing us classic anime. As for manga, we got over 150 titles this year! And Seven Seas wins the prize for licensing the most manga based on Alice in Wonderland.
As always, let us know if we missed anything.
