Editor's Note: While our news staff strive to bring as much of the most important manga, anime, and video game news to our readers as possible, we sometimes find that we have news items that we aren't able to publish in a timely manner, and in the end discard them. Most of these news items are ones found in various manga magazines that don't get picked up by other news outlets. In an attempt to help get more of these news items out into the public, we're publishing a roundup in one fell swoop.

The below news items are sorted by the date the news was announced.
