From what I've heard Your Forma is slowly becoming the next big thing.

MonsTABOO sounds like it could be pretty cute.

While the original written short story was included in the first season's BD release, it's technically not "anime-original" because the OVA was adapting the written story.

Honestly, this seems like one of the best collection of licences that Yen Press has grabbed in a while. Your Forma sounds so good. And as a sci-fi light novel, it's a nice breath of fresh air within the overpopulated fantasy driven sphere of English LNs. MonsTABOO and the Manwha are also really nice grabs, and I'm excited to see all of these in print.

But the one that really has my interest is Lost Lad London. I'm really getting into these releases we're getting in North America for these more "realistic" settings for manga. Go With the Clouds: North-by-Northwest has been a favourite of mine lately, and so I'm really interested in seeing more that seem to echo that vibe. And this gives me echoes of that, despite being a different genre.

My take is if the first version of an anime-related IP that was officially released is an anime but it later gets manga/light novel adaptations, I would still consider an anime-original story.
