As has been the case virtually every fall for nearly three decades, this weekend the twenty-eighth edition of Manga Barcelona is being held. In this year 2022, the event has been moved to a new venue due to the growing attendance that has been taking place in recent years.

It is the largest fair related to the world of manga, anime and Japan in all of Spain. And, due to its magnitude, companies related to the medium always take the opportunity to announce the most important licenses at this event, and the 2022 edition of Manga Barcelona could not be less. Below, we will tell you all the news and licenses of Manga Barcelona 2022.

Kibook Ediciones Manga Barcelona 2022 Licenses

This editorial is the most recent of all those present in this Manga Barcelona 2022. Its main attraction is that it is made up of various influencers, obviously related to anime and manga. However, despite the fact that there are well-known names behind it, the quality and professionalism that they have shown so far is excellent and typical of a much larger publisher.

Unfortunately, due to different reasons, the young publisher has not been able to announce any new license in this Manga Barcelona 2022. Of course, they have given details about the three works that they already announced in their direct presentation a few months ago.

Bibliomania, his only manga published so far, has surprised Japan after being sold out two days after its release and they have already confirmed that a second and even a third edition is on the way. They have also ensured that their other two licenses, ‘The Last Doctors’ and ‘Endou’, somewhat more unknown works but which they hope will have a similar reception, will arrive in the first three months of 2023.

Fandogamia Manga Barcelona 2022 Licenses

This editorial is completely focused on any type of comics, of American, European and Asian origin. In addition to publishing all these works, they have a large presence on social networks, publishing small webcomics daily, Monday through Friday. As for manga, they don’t have too many works and these are relatively independent, but even so, they are the most interesting series.

Fandogamia has had few licenses, although it is something that is understood due to how small it is compared to other publishers. The first of the works announced was ‘Kimi to ha 2do to Kisu dekinai’, a single-volume shojo, and ‘The Seven Knights of the Marronier Kingdom’, another shojo but with a more historical cut and action overtones, which in this case a series of 7 volumes.
