Story follows mecha otaku reincarnated as aspiring mecha pilot in alternate world

This year's 19th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine announced on Friday that the first volume of the manga adaptation of Hisago Amazake-no's Knight's & Magic light novel series will have an "important announcement" on its wrap-around jacket band. The volume will ship on September 24, and the announcement will also run in Young Gangan's 20th issue on October 7.

In the story, a Japanese mecha otaku dies in a car accident and his soul is reincarnated into another world as Ernesti Echevarria. Eru inherits memories and interests from his previous life, and aims to be a pilot of a Silhouette Knight, a large humanoid weapon that really exists in his world.

Amazake-no began the ongoing story in October 2010 on the online novel platform Shōsetsuka ni Narō. Shufunotomo's Hero Bunko imprint picked up the series and published the first novel with illustrations by Kurogin in January 2013. Hero Bunko published the sixth volume on March 30.

Takuji Katō began the manga adaptation in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine on April 15.
