Kanokon Romantic Comedy Light Novels Adapted for Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The promotional sleeve wrapper on the eighth volume (on sale November 19) of Katsumi Nishino's Kanokon light novel series will announce that the novels will be adapted for anime in Japan. The romantic comedy follows a country boy named Kōta who transfers to a new high school in the city. On his first day, he encounters a girl named Chizuru, who happens to have a fox tail. He eventually meets a wolf-girl named Nozomu (thus completing the love triangle) and still more unusual members of the student body.
The illustrator Koin draws the artwork for the original light novel series under Media Factory's MF Bunko J imprint, and Rin Yamaki draws its manga adaptation in the same publisher's Monthly Comic Alive magazine. The manga's second volume was released on August 31.
The North American publisher Seven Seas Entertainment had announced in September of 2006 that it is translating the original light novel series into English. This is the third light novel series with animal-girl heroines (including Spice and Wolf and Wagaya no Oinarisama.) to have an anime adaptation announced in the last four months.
