    - Manga Publishing Pros Industry Roundtable | 5:00pm - 6:00pm
    For over 30 years, manga has had its share of challenges in North America. But with more titles available in English on the same day as Japan and more variety available in both print and digital formats, manga is definitely here to stay and on the rise once more. Get a taste of what's hot, what's not, and what's next for manga in North America and Japan from top publishing pros, including Leyla Aker (senior vice president of publishing, VIZ Media), Ben Applegate (associate director of publisher services, Penguin Random House), Erik Ko (chief of operations, Udon Entertainment), and perhaps a few special guests. Moderated by David Brothers (4thletter!, Comics Alliance).
    - Lost in Translation | 7:00pm - 8:00pm
    The economy is steadily growing stronger and so are sales of manga and anime. But are the steady sales helping all the portions of the industry? And with the renewed interest in manga out there, are there enough quality series to feed the hunger, or is there a danger of oversaturation? Freelancers and industry insiders discuss the art and business of translated entertainment, share stories, and take audience questions. Panelists include William Flanagan (Fairy Tail), Michael Gombos (director of international publishing and licensing, Dark Horse), Mari Morimoto (Naruto), Lillian Diaz-Przybyl (digital editor, Sweetness and Lightning), and Stephen Paul (One Piece).
