A Certain Magical Index's Kamachi Reveals Zombie & Vampire Novel
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The newly-launched official website of light novel writer Kazuma Kamachi announced on Thursday that he is writing a new original story that he will publish exclusively on his website. The as-yet untitled story has five published chapters and a "chapter 0" up on the site now, with an update coming on March 17.
The story centers on Satori, who has an older sister named Erika, and a younger sister named Ayumi. The story begins with a speculative remark of "If vampires and zombies really existed, who would win?" The two sisters, who are prone to quarreling, decide to settle the matter in Maxwell, a support program that Satori developed. Satori provides a virtual recreation of their city, and the two sisters take on the role of vampire and zombie and compete to see who can infect the most people.
Kamachi is currently writing Toaru Majutsu no Index x Dennō Senki Virtual-On: Toaru Majutsu no Virtual-On (A Certain Magical Index x Cyber Troopers Virtual-On: A Certain Magical Virtual-On), a crossover novel between his A Certain Magical Index franchise and the Virtual-On arcade game franchise. He also published his new Saikyō o Kojiraseta Level Counter Stop Ken Seijo Beatrice no Jakuten Sono Na wa "Buu Buu" (The Name of the Weakness That Has Aggravated the Strongest Max Level Sword Holy Woman Beatrice, is "Buu Buu") novel on Thursday, with illustrations by Mahaya.
Kamachi wrote the original light novels behind the Heavy Object and A Certain Magical Index franchises. His other works include Waltraute-san no Konkatsu Jijō (The Circumstances Leading to Waltraute's Marriage), Satsujin-ki to Deep End (The Killer Princess and the Deep End), Kantan na Monitor Desu (It Is a Simple Monitor), and Intelle Village no Zashiki Warashi (The Zashiki Warashi of Intellectual Village). Square Enix's Shonen Gangan published a crossover manga from February-October 2015 that featured characters from his various works.
