Digital growth appears to be slowing.
There's quite a bit to be said about certain companies though.
Yen Press is definitely looking at making 2014 a big year for the Sword Art Online property as they have some of the novels coming and some of the manga. They’ve now announced the second installment on the manga side they begins the Fairy Dance arc of the series which is now set to debut on June 24th, 2014 for $12.99 list. The pcb title will come with 224 pages of material from the publisher. The original work was written by REiki Kawahara and has artwork by Tanako Makamura.
First announcement is Manga Dogs
Second announcement is Noragami
Last announcement is a "colossal edition" of Attack on Titan. First five volumes reprinted on premium quality paper.
Probably something that a lot of people won't care about/
