Viz Media announced at its New York Comic Con panel on Thursday that it has licensed Mika Yamamori's Daytime Shooting Star (Hirunaka no Ryūsei) manga, and plans to release the first volume in summer 2019.

Viz Media also announced plans to release The Art of Neon Genesis Evangelion: 2007-2017 art book in summer 2019. The book, which shipped in Japan in March, features movie art, concept art, collaborations with mobile video games, and fashion spreads.

Daytime Shooting Star centers on Suzume Yosano, a high school girl who moves from the countryside to Tokyo. On her first day in Tokyo, she gets lost, and a man helps her. That man turns out to be her new homeroom teacher named Satsuki Shishio. Suzume gradually comes to like Satsuki. Sitting next to Suzume in her class is Daiki Mamura, who hates women. Daiki and Suzume soon become friends.

Yamamori launched the manga in 2011 and ended the series in 2014. The manga has 12 main volumes and one spinoff volume. A live-action film adaptation premiered in March 2017.
