Digital Manga's panel began with announcements of upcoming new titles. New releases for later in 2008 include Fafner – Dead Aggressor (novel), Knights, and Hakua Ugetsu's Flamboyant (artbook). The first issue of the Megami Deluxe mook (magazine-book) is also now available.

New manga titles for 2009 include UtaHime, Overclock: Once in a Blue Moon, Ghost Hunt Scramble, Tale of a White Knight, 1 Sakura Hill, Lyrical Nanoha Strikers, RH Plus, and Time For Magic. The newly founded Doki Doki imprint also brings Princess Princess+, Happy Boys, Wolf God, Otodama, Crimson Cross, and Millennium Prime Minister.

DMP's Pop Japan Travel also continues to offer various anime- and manga-related tours; the most recent upcoming tour is "Mind Over Manga" in August, which takes participants to the Comitia doujinshi festival with an opportunity to sell their own works. A video of previous Pop Japan tours was also shown.

The panel was then opened to questions. Livingston discussed some of the new manga titles in greater detail; potential favorites include Otodama and Happy Boys. Many fans also expressed an interest in various Pop Japan packages, especially yaoi-related tours. The panel ended with a raffle prize drawing.
