With the manga that has been announced so far, 2023 is looking to be one of the most thrilling years for manga. The number of licenses that English manga publishers are obtaining as of late is exciting, and with the growing popularity of manga, a lot more are on the way. If 2022's new manga releases is indication, the year is bound to be full of amazing releases.

In 2023, it looks like publishers are going after a mix of old and new series that have yet to be published in English, including more releases from incredible authors like Sui Ishida, the creator of one of my favorite horror manga Tokyo Ghoul, and Tatsuki Fujimoto, the creator of Chainsaw Man and Fire Punch.

With so many new licenses being announced every week, it can be difficult to keep track of all of the new manga releases that are coming in a year. I wrote up this post in hopes that it would be helpful for those of you looking for a comprehensive list. I also compiled a list of all of the continuing manga volumes that are releasing in 2023 if you'd like to check that out also.

That all being said, here are all of the new manga series that are releasing in 2023 so far! I will continue to update this post as more series are announced for 2023 release.
