New License Announcements
1:08 PM – Highschool of the Dead manga licensed.
1:08 PM – Higurashi manga (sidestory).
1:10 PM – Betrayal Knows My Name. It seems they are focusing on licensing shows that are either very recent or currently on anime…
1;11 PM – Aron’s Absurd Armada. Full color 4-koma manhwa. Are they into the slashy stuff or what? :)
1:12 PM – The Bride’s Stories by Kaoru Mori. Interestingly enough this was mentioned in yesterday’s Best/Worst Manga panel as a promising unlicensed manga. Guess it’s not unlicensed now!
1:14 PM – Yen Press Magazine moving online. There is a hint that a “certain green haired girl” will be making an appearance. Yotsuba?
1:15 PM – The online magazine will not be in Flash. Heh–the iPad may in fact be an ideal device for reading that sort of thing.
1:20 PM – it’s Q&A now. Will record the most interesting questions.
1:20 PM – they feel no need to separate out their yaoi material in a separate imprint. They don’t want to “ghettoize” that stuff.
1:21 PM – the manga will be only viewable online, not downloadable. You can sign in through one login on multiple machines (within reason).
1:23 PM – no new light novels are being planned, aside from continuing existing ones. However, with Haruhi, the Disappearance novel will be coming out soon.
1:24 PM – feels that eInk is not ideal for reading manga, which is why they’re focusing on the iPad and similar devices.
1:25 PM – giveaways. I think that’s it.
