Novels by How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord author, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou illustrator debuted in 2016

Update: ANN staff based this article on a bookstore's photograph of the wraparound jacket band for 14-Sai to Illustrator, which stated that an anime adaptation has been greenlit. However, Twitter user @akibablog posted a photograph that shows the small print on the wraparound jacket band, and it reads, "A work that is not 14-Sai to Illustrator will get an anime adaptation."

Thanks, Dennis R.

Update 2: ANN confirmed that the text on the wraparound jacket band does not confirm an anime adaptation.

The original text of the article is below:


The wrap-around jacket band for the fifth volume of Yukiya Murasaki's 14-Sai to Illustrator (14-year-old and Illustrator) light novel series is announcing on Friday that the novels will get a television anime adaptation.

The novels center on Yūto Kyōbashi, an illustrator for light novels who has a particular fetish for navels. He meets a 14-year-old cosplayer named Nonoka Nogi, who is a fan of his illustrations, and begins helping him out with his housework. The story shows Yūto and his colleagues, which include his editor and other light novel and adult game illustrators.

Murasaki published the first novel with illustrations by Keeji Mizoguchi in November 2016. Kamelie launched a manga adaptation on Cygames' Cycomi app in February.

J-Novel Club is publishing Murasaki's How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord light novel series in English, and Seven Seas will publish Naoto Fukuda's manga adaptation.

Mizoguchi previously illustrated Hajime Kamoshida's The Pet Girl of Sakurasou light novels, which inspired a television anime in 2012. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
