Update to Tokyopop's Adjusted Release Schedule
LOS ANGELES, CA —TOKYOPOP®, a POP Media Holdings company and global manga leader, previously announced their adjusted release schedule during the COVID-19 pandemic and have revealed an adjusted schedule for their 2020 titles.
The outbreak of novel coronavirus around the world has resulted in non-essential businesses closing down temporarily, including our printer, lettering team, distributor and other vitally important parts of the publishing process. As the industry begins to adapt and resume business, we have worked closely with our industry partners to create an adjusted release schedule for the remainder of 2020.
“We are grateful as always for the patience and consideration of our fans, who've been incredibly supportive over the last few weeks,” says Kae Winters, Marketing Associate. “This is such a strange time for everyone, and we hope to be able to support our retailer and librarian friends, along with bringing new, exciting content to fans once more.”
TOKYOPOP will also be revealing more community projects to engage and support fans through the rest of the year, with details to follow in a future press release.
