Fall 2019 anime which were licensed before the quarter began will also be carried over for convenience. Please note that the anime licenses are for home video release; simulcast acquisitions for Fall 2019 can be found here. Digital releases are noted with an asterisk (*).

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.

Not at all, I don't think many users were around towards the end of the Q3 thread and I kinda disappeared a bit myself.

Sentai Filmworks licenses Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy (Outburst Dreamer Boys) and Val x Love for NA release. As usual with their titles, they will be simulcast on HIDIVE.

Square Enix Manga and Books license announcements from AnimeNYC

Ragna Crimson
Kusuriya no Hitorigoto
Yakumo-san wa Ezuke ga Shitai.
Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai!
Kamitachi ni Hirowareta Otoko
NieR:Automata - Shōnen YoRHa novel

Some pretty top tier licenses from Square, I'm impressed. I'm sniffing some upcoming anime adaptations for most of these, which is nice.

On the other hand very shitty licenses from Denpa and YenPress. Maybe Kodansha will do better tomorrow.
