Comic-Con International 2012

Panel: Friday, July 13 @ 6:30 in Room 8

BOOTH #1116

In just a few short days, the Yen Press team will be heading out to sunny San Diego for Comic-Con International! Visit us in BOOTH #1116 to meet the crew and snag some free stuff! (We’re listed under Hachette Book Group in the guide.)

Also, be sure to mark your schedules for the Yen Press panel at 6:30 on Friday night in Room 8. What better way to end your day than with new series announcements, Q&A, and, of course, more giveaways! And if you stick around afterward, senior editor JuYoun Lee will join other industry pros on the Making a Living in Manga panel at 7:30 in the same room!

For those of you who are serious about a career as a professional manga artist, Yen Press will also be holding a portfolio review session from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the Sails Pavilion.

We hope to see you there!

Wow *q*

Please, licence Another (manga), Gosick (manga and novel), Bakemonogatari novels and all Higurashi side stories (Katribanashi-hen, Saikoroshi-hen, Kokoroiyashi-hen and Hirukowashi-hen).


I’m looking forward to JuYoun Lee’s panel. I read her interview on Deb Aoki’s & thought she gave some interesting insight about aspects of comic creating that, I never thought about. I hope her panel advice will be equally helpful to aspiring creators for the future.

Also, I’m looking forward to those new announcements, as well.


This is totally random but, I hope YP announces more slice of 4koma titles.


licence Sword art online (novels) please… now that kieli and book girl are ending.


Please tell me you guys are going to be at Otakon! And I’d like to request all light novels….


I want Antique Romance(manhwa),The One(manhua), Dokuhime (manga), Devil’s Bride(bl)


Darker Than Black: Jet Black Flower
Umineko Episode X
Red Raven
Bloody Cross
Crimson Prince
Durarara!! Saika-hen
Future Diary

I could go on and on, really.


I should licence Silver Spoon (Gin no Saji), new manga from Himoru Arakawa!! It’s a GREAT title!!

I hope for some more light novels in general. Is there any chance you could get the Familiar of Zero or Shana light novels? (I know VIZ dropped Shana quickly but the sales for Yen would be much better: VIZ censored art and poorly translated them.)

And I’ll second that request for the rest of the Higurashi side stories. Yen’s releases for Higurashi have been fantastic. I have everything that’s come out so far on my shelves and I’m eager to buy more, even if I had to pay more.


I love your light novel releases! Please do license more! I recommend:

– Sword Art Online
– Shakugan no Shana
– Hakushaku to Yousei

These are a few great titles! *w*

:O Also it would be amazing if you considered to license Chihayafuru manga, it’s a great one!!!!!


Really hoping for a new light novel to be announced. Yen Press is the only company I can place my hopes on since others have stepped away from LNs.


Not only did you license a light novel, but it’s a horror light novel! You guys make my geeky fangirl heart so happy! I can’t wait to read Another! The only things better than that would have been the Baccano LNs or a Demonata OEL adaptaion. 😉


I LOOOOVE Conventions because people always announce NEW licenses!! 8D WEEE~~ Can’t wait to see what you’ve guys announced!
Need more manhwa!!


Have Fun at ComicCon! I soooo wish I could be there. I’m totally bumbing about not being able to come to the portfolio review session….That would have been Amazing!! That is soooo great of you guys to do that.
Have a good day.


@Certtaluna What kind of info? Release date has not yet been finalized, but once it is, the Another series page will go live on the site. If there’s anything else you wanted to know, please do not hesitate to ask!
