Anime News Network's coverage of Anime NYC 2017 is sponsored by Yen Press.
Viz Media announced during its panel at Anime NYC on Friday that it has licensed the Okura and Coma Hashii's That Blue Sky Feeling (Sorairo Flutter) manga. The company will begin releasing the manga in summer 2018. Viz Media also revealed that it will begin publishing physical volumes of Hideyuki Furuhashi and Betten Court's My Hero Academia: Vigilantes (Vigilante -Boku no Hero Academia ILLEGALS-) manga in summer 2018.
Viz Media describes That Blue Sky Feeling:
Outgoing high school student Noshiro finds himself drawn to Sanada, the school outcast, who is rumored to be gay. Rather than deter Noshiro, the rumor makes him even more determined to get close to Sanada, setting in motion a tale of first love.
Okura drew and wrote the original manga, and posted it online in 2009. A new version of the manga, with art by Hashii, launched in Square Enix's Gangan Joker magazine on January 21. Square Enix published the manga's first compiled book volume on July 22.
Viz Media licensed My Hero Academia: Vigilantes in July, and began releasing chapters digitally on August 7.
