Tokyopop Plans Manga Publishing Relaunch, More Projects

Quote:
Tokyopop announced at its Anime Expo panel on Thursday that it is planning to begin publishing manga again in 2016. The company is seeking to license "hidden gems that are not yet noticed" from small or independent publishers.

In addition, Tokyopop plans to publish art books and collectors editions, and will consider light novels.

The company is also looking to get into film and television production. Founder Stu Levy said the company has 20 properties live-action and animation including Knockouts and Riding Shotgun. Both properties have videos on Tokyopop's YouTube channel. (Note: The latter video is not safe for work.) The company is also planning an anime review YouTube series.

Finally, the company announced that it is planning a "Pop Comics" iOS and Android app that lets users upload their own comics to share. Users keep the copyright and 100% creative control of their uploaded works.

Tokyopop shut down its North American publishing operations in May 2011. The company has since collaborated with Right Stuf and Gentosha Comics to release the fourth and fifth volumes of Hidekaz Himaruya's Hetalia manga, and has uploaded several titles to the Comixology digital platform

Tokyopop Hints at Possible Manga Collaborations With Disney

Quote:
Tokyopop teased upcoming original "manga" collaborations with Disney at its panel at Comic Con International on Saturday, though clarified that it is not yet official. The panelists shared images of Star Wars and Frozen for the announcement.

Tokyopop founder Stu Levy said that the works would be original and would possibly have Japanese artists.

Tokyopop previously published original world manga, including a series based on Star Trek, before the company shut down its North American publishing operations in May 2011.

The company also announced that it is releasing an iOS game called Sushi Cross, and that it will release M. Alice LeGrow's American manga Bizenghast as an eight-volume box set. Levy said the company is not taking publisher profits, and will also sell the box separately for those who already own the series.

Tokyopop announced at its Anime Expo panel that it is planning to begin publishing manga again in 2016. It also announced several other projects, including a comics app and video production.

Talking Tokyopop

Looking forward to the artbooks specifically, but Tokyopop had a pretty great collection, and i'm happy to hear that the downturn in sales hasn't put them off.
