Ross founded the UK Anime Network waaay back in 1995 and works in and around the anime world in his spare time.


At New York Comic Con, Viz dropped news of their upcoming titles for 2020.

Samurai 8: Tale of Hachimaru written by Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto and drawn by former assistant Akira Okubo.

Described as a Sci-Fi Samurai epic, the series is set to combine Kishimoto's love of Japanese culture and aesthetics with his love for science fiction settings and technology according to a statement read out by Naruto actress Junko Takeuchi at Jump Festa 2019. 

Frozen 2: The Manga will follow the upcoming film of the same name - the style should lend itself well to manga artwork.

Star Wars: The Legends of Luke Skywalker is an anthology and will be out early 2020 with art from Akira Himekawa, Haruichi, Akira Fukaya, Takashi Kisaki and Subaru.

The Kingdom of the Gods, the manga that inspired the Netfliz Original Series Kingdom, will be out in Summer 2020.

RWBY, the official manga adaptation of the Rooster Teeth anime-style cartoon, will also premiere next Summer.

Not Your Idol will be released under the Shojo Beat label in Summer.

Mujirushi: The Sign of Dreams by Naoki Urasawa (20th Century Boys) is an international art caper set in France and due to start capering in Summer.

Something Yuri is also added to the slate with How Do We Relationship, a love story between Miwa and Saeko.

Finally, a couple of classic series get the limelight - Maison Ikkoku by Rumiko Takahashi (Ranma 1/2) gets the Collector's Edition treatment, while Fushigi Yugi: Byakko Senki is the final story set in the world of the four gods.
