Manga in North America are enjoying a new “golden age.” More manga and light novels are hitting the shelves in bookstores and comic shops, and more titles than ever are available in digital formats the same day/date as Japan. There's more anime streaming on Netflix, Amazon, and Crunchyroll, and that's driving interest in more manga and a more diverse range of titles than ever before. Get a taste of what's hot, what's not, and what's next for manga in North America and Japan from top publishing pros, including Candice Uyloan (senior director, marketing, VIZ Media) Ben Applegate (director, publisher services, Penguin Random House), Kurt Hassler (publisher, managing director, Yen Press), Masaaki Shimizu (general manager and publisher, book publishing division, Square Enix), Ed Chavez (publisher, Denpa Books), Daihei Shiohama (Media-Do International), and Matt Moylan (director of publishing, Udon Entertainment). Moderated by Deb Aoki (Publishers Weekly, Anime News Network).
