AX 2010 – Day 3: VIZ Media Panel (Manga)

VIZ Media always has one of coolest panels ever with giveaways and an enthusiastic attitude when they start announcing their upcoming manga titles. While our own Faith McAdams is covering the anime end of their panel, I am following their manga releases that were announced at the show. First announcement though is for the readers of Shonen Jump Magazine, VIZ is going to lower the subscription price to $26.95.

We are definitely looking forward to these new titles like Bakuman and Cross Game.
