Anime Expo - Broccoli Books Panel

By Sakura Eries     July 06, 2008

The Broccoli International USA Anime Expo Industry Panel took place July 5, 2008 at 3:30 p.m. with Jonathan Kung, Marketing Director for Broccoli. In regards to new manga licenses, Broccoli has made some acquisitions but is not yet able to announce the specifics about these titles.

Broccoli did however provide the following schedule for upcoming releases:

  • Just Released: Koi Cupid
  • Just Released: Sola
  • Next week: World of Disgaea 2 information guide and art book.
  • In two weeks: Nui! (Volume 1 of 3)
  • August: Honoka Level Up! Volume 1
  • November: Disgaea 2 Volume 3

    In addition to manga, Broccoli is releasing Cosmode USA, which should be of interest to cosplay or fashion design enthusiasts. This new magazine features material from Cosmode, a cosplay oriented monthly magazine from Japan. Broccoli will not be doing a direct issue by issue translation of the Japanese magazine; instead, portions of different issues with similar themes will be taken, translated, and packaged together in a hardback format with glossy pages. The theme of the first Cosmode USA is "glamour," and it will hit bookstores in July, but Broccoli has copies available for sale at Anime Expo. The magazine is comprised of gorgeous photographs of people in cosplay with articles on tips and instructions for cosplay enthusiasts towards the back. The sale price for each issue is $20, and issues will be released every four months.
