Anime Expo also marks the opening of the sixth Rising Stars of Manga competition. The submission deadline for entries and application forms is January 15, 2006, and complete rules are available online at Tokyopop's website.
Finally, TOKYOPOP will be translating and publishing the first Kino's Journey novel. This project will be used to further test the cost-effectiveness of releasing Japanese novels related to anime and manga titles, and if the first novel sells well enough, TOKYOPOP will consider releasing the remaining five as well.
