DMI already revealed that three of these manga titles — Tired of Waiting for Love, Only The Flower Knows, and The Faithful Dog Waits for Flowers — were assigned to the group Kawaii Neko to localize into English before the convention.

Last summer, DMI revealed its plans for the Guild, which allows fans to translate, edit, and letter works legally with the permission of the original Japanese owners. Under the program, the guild members are credited and paid royalties from online purchases, and the works may be published in print if they prove to be popular.
