Having made their debut at Anime Expo 2007, Aurora Publishing celebrated their first anniversary at this panel. The company is a subsidiary of Ohzora Shuppan, Japan's leading publisher of josei manga (women's/ladies' comics).

Current Aurora titles include Walkin' Butterfly (soon to be a live-action TV series in Japan), Flock of Angels, Nightmares for Sale, and Nephilim. As announced earlier in the year, Aurora's next project will be the comedy manga Hitohira, with the first volume due in October and the second, in November.

Aurora also publishes yaoi manga under the Deux imprint. Current titles include Kiss All The Boys, Mister Mistress, and Oh my god!. A number of new titles will make their debut in August and September, including Maid in Heaven, Heavenly Body, Ruff Love, Two of Hearts, and the one-shot volume Future Lovers. New November releases include Lovers and Souls, FreshMen, and Hanky Panky.

After the schedule of releases and a prize drawing, the panel was opened up to questions, mostly regarding specific series and release dates.
