The May Line-Up

Licensing news finally slowed down this month. But I don’t expect that to last since we are going into the summer convention season. However, there was plenty of interesting streaming/broadcasting news with the return of Toonami and new title surprises for Shonen Jump Alpha. So all in all still a month of happy news.

This is certainly the calm before the storm. I expect that this will seem like a blessing when the con season rolls in and there are nothing but announcements after announcements. I hope that the next few months bring us news of Mawaru Penguindrum or I am going to be very disappointed.

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.

Newly Licensed in the U.S.

  • Hetalia Axis Powers (manga) – Right Stuf
    I don’t care about Hetalia but I’m very curious about this new partnership of Right Stuf and TokyoPop. This could save a bunch of titles that were unfinished but I won’t get my hopes up too high.
    I know you just hoping that the Right Stuf will save Steel Angel Kurumi. We all have that same hope.
  • Mr. Mini Mart – Digital Manga Publishing
  • Ninth Life Love – Digital Manga Publishing
  • Priceless Honey – Digital Manga Publishing
  • Ray’s Days – Digital Manga Publishing

    Curious about the new series from Hisae Iwaoka. I am completely enamored with Saturn Apartments. From the description, I can’t really tell if it has any SF themes, but I’ll be sure to check it out.
