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).
