VIZ announces New Anime and Manga Acquisitions

We’re you at Otakon 2017 last weekend? Even though I wasn’t able to make it out myself, that doesn’t mean we didn’t get some insight from our good friends over at VIZ Media.

Publishing powerhouse VIZ Media took the chance to announce some of the new titles we can look forward to early next year. These titles range from the sweet and romantic shojo series like TAKANE & HANA and romantic comedies like THE YOUNG MASTER’S REVENGE. The announcement even extended to the RWBY prequel stories which are based on the mega-popular RWBY animated series by Rooster Teeth.
