Yen Press made a number of new manga and art book announcements at Sakura Con this weekend that will delight fans in the months to come. While no dates were revealed for when we’ll see the books, we’re expecting to hear word on a number of them soon rather than later. Most of the books announced will be getting print editions but the first two are digital-only for now. You can see how two books went from digital-only to print as well, so the potential is definitely there.
