Javits Center, Panel Room 1E15 (New York, NY)



The Japan Foundation, New York and Anime NYC will co-organize a panel on the current state of the Manga Industry. You will hear from manga industry professionals on how they have dealt with the pandemic – from the initial shutdown, to the rise in manga sales in 2020 and 2021, and the logistical challenges that each are facing today. The focus will then shift to the outlook for 2022 and beyond. The discussion will be moderated by Chris Macdonald, publisher of Anime News Network. Panelists include Kurt Hassler (Yen Press Publisher and Managing Director), and Kevin Hamric (VP of Publishing Sales of VIZ).
