On behalf of

Dear friends,

My name is Miguel and I'm one of the editors of AniMangaWeb.

All the information published in is absolutely accurate.

We could only point out, just a mere translational error as Gumugum previously stated, that some titles announced by Ediciones Glénat (such as Golgo 13, Sex, Sky High, Forget me Not, Dien Bien Phu, Tokyo Tribe 2 and Robot) are considered seinen and not shonen series.

We could also clarify (as we announced in our web) that Bobobo, Get Backers and Dragon Quest are still under study by Planeta DeAgostini Comics and not officially announced.

I would also like to thank Comipress for their support and for the incredible coverage of manga and anime news coming all around the world they have been carrying out since they came online.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information about this event.

Best Regards,

Bobobo, Get Backers and Dragon Quest are not yet licensed by Planeta de Agostini, the only one confirmed was Shirley.

The articles says that Planeta have interest in those series (Bobobo, etc.), but only Shirley is licensed for the time being.


Thank you all for the corrections :) The article has been updated to fix the errors.
