Ohhhh, Murciélago! Cool

Based what I've read from Erica's reviews, I'm so in! Kuroko almost reminds me of a lesbian Alucard (or go for the obvious look of Rip Van Winkle from Hellsing).

I had a feeling they would announce Rokka. It is a novel I was looking forward to reading since the anime adaptation from last summer, which was my favorite anime of the year. I'll pick it up as soon as possible! Very Happy Very Happy

Damn, the fan translations for Rokka were slow enough, now I'll have to wait years to finish volume 5.

Well, anyone who liked the anime should check out the novels. It's consistently good throughout.

I really wonder if Big Order is worth it because the anime was such a train wreck i wonder if the manga is any better that they decided its worth to pick it up *_*

Off all the things they could have licensed...

Interested in Rokka, though KonoSuba and Re;Zero's higher on my priority list.

I'm happy as Larry about Smokin' Parade though I wished Yen Press licensed something from Kadokawa's Young Ace too.

There's a reason why Yen is probably my favorite manga publisher now. I just hope they don't overreach and pull a TokyoPop and crash the market.

Really excited for the Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers light novel (and the manga too). When everybody started saying that there wouldn't be anymore anime due to the sales, I was worried I'd never get to see any more of the story.

I recently saw Smokin' Parade on the Shounen Ace website, and thought it looked like something that might get licensed soon. Glad to see my intuition was correct; I might even read it if people say it's good.

I can't believe that they licensed Big Order. The anime was such a flop that I would think it would make people leery of the manga. I did find the anime strangely enjoyable in a "so-bad-it's-good" way (unlike ANN's episode reviewer), but I don't have any urge to delve into the manga.

No opinion on The Isolator or Murciélago. I haven't read the LN for the former, and the latter doesn't really look like something I would be interested in.

Re;Zero is being released on the 19th this month by Yen-On.

So just wait a bit longer.

KonoSuba still has no official release date (what I've seen in Diamond Preview magazine)

The manga is quite a bit better. The anime cut out a ton of stuff and added in incest. The anime hit all the main events of the manga, but left out a lot of moments in between, nuking a lot of character development. And the last 10 minutes were anime original. The manga started a whole new arc with (manga spoilers for the next story arc, albeit all of this is revealed within 3 chapters of the new arc starting) spoiler[A (sort of) second great destruction triggered and wiped out about a 50 mile radius around where Sena, Gennai, Eiji, and everyone was. Eiji and Rin survived because of her Rebirth Fire. Eiji is looking Sena, and it appears like Sena has become the new Daisy and are creating Orders. Also, the Assembly of Ten's mission is finished and are no longer supporting Eiji. It's all Eiji and Rin now.]

So happy about Rokka. Did they give any indication of when they plan to start releasing the LN? I didn't see it mentioned in the article.
