DMI Puts All Print Releases on Hiatus in January-June 2013

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Distribution of print to resume in June; previously scheduled books delayed half-year

Digital Manga Inc. President Hikaru Sasahara announced on Wednesday that the print releases for the publisher's DMP, June Manga, DokiDoki, and 801 Media imprints will be put on temporary hiatus effective January 1, 2013. The company will resume distribution of print releases starting in June 2013.

The titles that are still listed as previously scheduled include Vampire Hunter D volume 7 and Osamu Tezuka's Unico, Atomcat, and Triton.

Sasahara emphasized that none of the company's licenses have been cancelled, just postponed. He explained that the postponement will allow the company to "coordinate [its] production schedule for 2013 and temporarily shift our focus to [its] digital publications."
