SEAN: November, and there’s still a lot coming out every week.
And we start with a bang, as Dark Horse has the manga version of the highly-acclaimed series Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! (Eizouken ni wa Te wo Dasu na!). From Gekkan Spirits, it’s a fantastic look at goofy eccentrics trying to make their own anime.
ASH: I’ve definitely heard good things about the anime; hopefully the manga will be good, too!
MJ: That sounds kind of fun!
SEAN: J-Novel Club has a lot of print this week. Two debuts, By the Grace of the Gods (now with an anime) and I Shall Survive Using Potions! (the manga version).
Also in print: An Archdemon’s Dilemma 8, Ascendance of a Bookworm 2 (manga version), Infinite Dendrogram 9, The Magic in This Other World Is Too Far Behind! 9, and My Next Life As a Villainess! 4.
ASH: I’m really happy to see so much print coming out from J-Novel Club.
SEAN: Digitally the debut is Fushi no Kami: Rebuilding Civilization Starts With a Village (Fushi no Kami ~ Henkyou kara Hajimeru Bunmei Saiseiki ~). A young man is reincarnated in another world, but he doesn’t have cool magic or sword powers, and the world is medieval. He wants modern civilization! Can he find it?

MICHELLE: Apparently! It’s been almost three years since volume nine came out.
ASH: Wow, that has been a while! O Maidens in Your Savage Season is the series that has my attention here, though.
SEAN: Digitally the debut is Otherworldly Munchkin: Let’s Speedrun the Dungeon with Only 1 HP! (Isekai Man Chikin -HP 1 no Mama de Saikyou Saisoku Danjon Kouryaku-), a Suiyoubi no Sirius series about a brother killed protecting his sister who’s reincarnated in a fantasy world… as is his sister, who he still has to save.

SEAN: Tokyopop debuts Ossan Idol! (Ossan (36) ga Idol ni naru Hanashi), an adaptation of a novel that runs in Comic Pash!. A Middle-Aged Man, bullied most of his life, turns his life around and gets buff, cool and handsome… but is unaware of this. Now he’s been scouted. This looks pretty fun.
MICHELLE: It does!
SEAN: Vertical has the 5th Bakemonogatari manga and Don’t Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro 4.
