Even without the new season of anime premiering in October there was a lot of licenses and news to be had. And only a bit of that came out of New York Comic Con, too. Of most interest is the three new crowdfunding projects, it is a growing category in the monthly line-up! And let’s not forget the addition of manga to Crunchyroll that was big news indeed!
So I hear some small amount of Attack on Titan titles were picked up? I’m sure there is some Sasha Braus 4-koma cooking manga that went unlicensed.
The Line-Up is a monthly rundown of newly licensed in the U.S., newly streaming in the U.S., crowdfunding projects, and newly announced anime and manga projects.
