The anime of Juni Taisen: Zodiac War literally just started airing, so it’s nice to see a prompt (and hardcover) release for this to tie in.
As well as Zodiac War, we’re also getting some more volume 1s with The Empty Box & Zeroth Maria; Outbreak Company; Re:ZERO Ex; So I’m a Spider, so What; Your Name Another Side; The Isolator; Wolf & Parchment; and Nekomonogatari Black. That’s a lot of things getting started!
As usual, some light novels have the funniest names. I Saved Too Many Girls and Caused the Apocalypse always makes me smile, but I absolutely love So I’m a Spider, So What? as a title.
On top of standard releases, Yen are also burning through some series to get westerners caught up, which is always appreciated. Accel World; The Isolator; and The Irregular at Magic High School all see multiple releases this month digitally.
Are you buying anything this month?
Juni Taisen: Zodiac War is really good as an anime, so I want to try the novel!
So I’m a Spider, So What? makes me laugh! （⌒▽⌒）
Please read Durarara. (o;_ _)o
Your Name has a light novel??
