"Manga had a spectacular year in 2020 despite the global Covid pandemic" ICv2 Publisher Milton Griepp said in a statement accompanying the announcement. "Readers have been diving into manga as a big form of Covid era entertainment, and there’s growth across the board, even in the channels most affected by Covid shutdowns. Now more than ever, understanding this key category is critical, and we’re proud to contribute to that understanding by covering it in depth during this special focus week. We want to thank our sponsors, VIZ Media, Tokyopop, and NPD for their support."
