In this thread, you'll find a comprehensive list of anime and manga licensed in the second quarter (Apr-Jun) of 2015. Spring anime which were licensed before the quarter began will also be carried over for convenience. Please note that anime licenses are for home video release; simulcast acquisitions for Spring 2015 can be found here.

This post will be continuously updated as more licenses are announced. If you have a license that we are missing, please feel free to post it in this thread.

Seems to be animatsu that have actually licensed it, not manga.

There isn't a Q3 thread and I'm just so excited by this potential one, but this popped up on Amazon. Stardust Crusaders English dub looks very likely now. I am going to cream my pants so much

Just figured that I'd mention that it seems to be the case that the licenses for Punchline and Igai: The Play Dead/Alive have somehow been missed out from the main post in the most recent update.

Unintended leak by the looks of it. Anime Limited had said that they're waiting to tomorrow for their other announcement, and the link has been taken down.
