I don't know if anything can be done about this, but I thought I should mention it.
For manga licensed in the US by Yen Press, the data imports from onix hachette are overwriting "Yen Press" as the imprint with "Orbit" instead. Example (and edit log) below:
Both Yen Press and Orbit are owned by the Hachette group. In addition
according to Wikipedia
"Yen Press" is an imprint of "Orbit". However, to my knowledge all manga titles are handled under the Yen Press imprint and the Orbit name/label is used for full-text novels.
Is this something that can be fixed? Thank you.

Yes, I've noticed this too. Pretty much every Yen Press book is attributed to Orbit if someone hasn't set it manually.

Yea I also looked this up. Yen Press is Hatchett's Manga and Graphic Novel division and Orbit is their Science Fiction Division.
I will manual go change any that are set up as Orbit and shouldn't be, but other than contacting the database company to tell them this info is wrong so they stop doing this, there isn't much that can be done, I would imagine.
