Sword of the Dark Ones' Yasui Writes Ark IX Novel With Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
2nd volume of Kentaro Yasui's latest light novel project to bundle anime

Kodansha's light novel imprint announced on Friday that Ark IX (アークⅨ), the latest light novel by Sword of the Dark Ones creator Kentaro Yasui, will bundle an anime. The anime will come with the limited edition of the second volume.

Yasui is best known for writing the light novel series Ragnarok. The story follows a mercenary named Leroy Schwartz who hunts monsters (known as the Dark Ones) with his sentient long-sword Ragnarok. (The light novel series has no relation with Myung-Jin Lee's manhwa of the same name.) Yasui's work inspired Tsukasa Kotobuki's manga adaptation which CMX Press published in North America under the title Sword of the Dark Ones.

The first Ark IX light novel volume will be Yasui's first published volume since 2006, when Kadokawa Group Publishing released his Ragnarok EX Misfortune spinoff volume.
