    General Light Novel News and Announcements

    Since no one has made the thread for any light novel related news and announcements, so I guess I'll start. The rule is same as from General Manga Thread and General Anime Thread, except it only focuses on the light novels.

    ========================================================================================

    It is confirmed that five novel series from MF Bunko J going to get an anime. Here's the five series which are getting an anime:

    - Seikoku no Dragonar



    - Seirei-tsukai no Blade Dance



    - Mahou Sensou



    - Madan no Ou to Vanadis



    - No Game No Life

    It looks like Owari Monogatari (new Monogatari series) going to release on October Issue of Bessatsu Shounen Magazine, before releasing as a volume. Also, this is a light novel, not a manga.

    Bessatsu Shounen Magazine will only publish Ougi Formula, the first story from Owarimonogatari, in the October issue (available September 9). Bessatsu Shounen Magazine will not serialize the entire novel. From ANN

    This is made of so much win, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax:



    The playable characters announced so far are Kirino (Oreimo), Misaka (RailDex), Asuna (SAO), Shana (Shakugan no Shana), Shizuo (Drrr), and Kuroyukihime (Accel World). So much better than Jump All-Stars

    One of the two fighting games I want out of JPN. I was glad for playable Shizuo at least (but wanted Kida Masaomi and Izaya for my sandwich). Haru is Kuroyukihime's support which is alright. I hope Tatsuya is in this (Mahouka) and maybe even playable Miyuki just for the ice attacks alone.

    New series by the Oreimo author Fushimi Tsukasa outlined:

Masamune wants his sister to leave her room, because the two of them are each other's only family.

    Masamune's novel illustrator, penname “Ero Manga Sensei,” draws extremely perverted drawings, and is very reliable. Masamune had never met his illustrator, and figured he was just a disgusting, perverted otaku. However, the truth is revealed … that his “Ero Manga Sensei” is his own younger sister! To add to the chaos that erupts between the siblings, a beautiful, female, best-selling shōjo manga creator becomes their rival!"
    Oreimo illustrator Kanzaki Hiro also provided art of Ero Manga Sensei. The first volume goes on sale December 10, for ¥610 (about $6.15)

    Mikihiko's hair color? I thought it was supposed to be black?

    Looks like they just did not add color to any of the characters hair for those prints.
