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.


Well, all of the licenses are originally from SE so not really much difficult lol
