Here’s a live blog of the Yen Press panel. Last year, they announced several big licenses, so we’re going to be looking to see if they’ll do more this year.
Looks like it is over. See ya! #SDCC #yenpress
Now it’s the “swag portion of the evening.” Sounds like this panel may close early. #SDCC #yenpress
They are also working on being able to read YenPlus on the iPad in the app. #SDCC #yenpress
A few notes on “With The Light,” which is about raising an autistic child. #SDCC #yenpress
Q: Android version for the app? A: It’s the next step. iPad was first b/c of the size; then iPhone, since it’s similar to iPad. Android is next on the agenda. #SDCC #yenpress
Huh, a manga version of Gossip Girl? The new app will have a free preview chapter called “Psycho Killer.” #SDCC #yenpress
The app will have a CoverFlow-style cover browser. #SDCC #yenpress
Not Yenpress Plus, sorry. It’s their actual volumes. #SDCC #yenpress
iPhone/iPad app to be released for YenPress Plus in 24 hours! Yotsuba! and HotD will be out today. #SDCC #yenpress
Olimpos (Olympus) by Aki. Yes, based on Greek mythology. Yes, BL. #SDCC #yenpress
Also, Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? March 2012. #SDCC #yenpress
New releases: Durarara!! next January. IIRC though it was an anime original. #SDCC #yenpress
Apparently Anne Rice consented to do an Interview With the Vampire story graphically… #SDCC #yenpress
High School of the Dead omnibus coming out soon. #SDCC #yenpress
Early QA: looking any new light novel licenses? A: Not today.
There will be new licensing announcements today. But first some previously announced titles.
Introducing the panel members: Abby Blackman, Tania Biswas, and Kurt Hassler.
Panel should be starting any minute now.
