Thank you so much to all of you who stopped by the Yen Press booth at NYAF this past weekend! We handed out even more copies of YEN PLUS, JuYoun slapped a bunch of people, and a good time was had by all. Well, by me anyway…
Of course, the big news came at our panel on Sunday, where we unveiled the first copies of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, releasing later this month! For those of you who snagged a copy at the panel, we hope you enjoyed it! But panels aren’t just for snagging free books! They’re for announcements!
