Go Light Novel Shopping with Your Mom for Bonus Short Story Prize
posted on by Eric Stimson
The winner of the 29th Fantasia Grand Prize, an annual award given to novels published by Fujimi Fantasia Bunko, is Do You Like Your Mom? Her Normal Attack is Two Attacks at Full Power. As the title suggests, the story is about a high school boy transported to an RPG-like fantasy world with his mother, who proves to be a highly useful companion. To celebrate the novel's publication on January 20, Animate is encouraging customers to come shopping for light novels with their moms.
The idea is that if customers bring their moms along to buy one of the four titles that won the 29th Fantasia Prizes, they can receive a 16-page short story booklet as a bonus. How does Animate know if she's your mom? They'll take your word for it. Seriously -- you can even bring a friend or a man, and they'll accept it. If even that condition is too stringent, customers can still receive the booklet if they buy three of the award-winning works. The other award-winning works are P.S.: To You Who Smiled at the Soragoto [Made-Up Story], I'll Sacrifice My Youth and Open Her Bangs and Berserker of Magic School Field.
If you buy two of the Fantasia Prize-winning works, you can receive this booklet, "Fantasia Bunko Special" (seen above), which contains stories related to the light novels Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor, My Girlfriend's No Otaku, But She Sure is Interested in My Erotic Games......, Assassins Pride and The Worthless Monster Trainer. The "fair" (promotional campaign) lasts until February 12.
