SuBLime is also releasing the first volume of Tsuta Suzuki's A Strange and Mystifying Story manga in November. Digital Manga Publishing's Juné imprint previously published the first three volumes in North America. SuBLime revealed in February that it has licensed the series.

The SuBLime staff members also stated at the panel that the company can't license Miyuki Abe's Super Lovers manga, stating "it's a content issue - we can't make it work in [the United States]." The staff also said regarding Shungiku Nakamura's Junjo Romantica manga, "it's up to 20 volumes now — it's just too long."
