We just wrapped up our panel at Anime NYC, including four new manga license announcements 🎉 Couldn’t make it in person? We’ve got our full list of announcements lined up below 👇

Natsume & Natsume

♂♀ Natsume & Natsume

Azuki’s first exclusive shojo manga license! Introducing Natsume & Natsume:

Natsume Shiranui has the face of a villain. From strangers on the street to his own high school classmates, his creepy grin freaks everybody out. But secretly he yearns to be a hero like his childhood friend — the kind, brave, and beautiful Natsume Minazuki. Can he become her hero, or is he destined to always be the one getting rescued? From the creator of The Girl with the Sanpaku Eyes, Natsume & Natsume is a wholesome romantic comedy about becoming a hero for the person you love.
