It seems like New York Comic Con has become one of the conventions where manga publishers show of their licenses they got after the big summer anime conventions have come and gone. I wonder if any of that helps get attention to those titles from an audience outside of the normal manga buying crowd.
The Line-Up is a monthly rundown of new anime, manga, light novel, artbook licenses, streaming/broadcasting announcements, crowdfunding projects, anime/manga projects, and live-action anime/manga adaptions.
