Kiro Ainana and shri’s Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody light novels are the next of the dropped-in-fantasy-world titles heading for an anime adaptation. The fourth volume (pictured below) of Megumu Aya’s manga adaptation will share the news tomorrow on its wraparound jacket band.
Ainana’s novel began as a 2013 online series, with Ayu’s manga following in Kadokawa’s Age Premium, before moving to Monthly Dragon Age when Age Premium ceased publication in July 2015. The story follows a computer programmer on a “death march” who awakes from a nap in another world one day. After a meteor shower bestows wealth upon him, he decides to head out sightseeing, beginning his “heartwarming, occasionally serious, and harem” adventure.
While Kadokawa also plans to publish the ninth volume of the light novels in Japan tomorrow, Yen Press will release their first volume both digitally and in print on January 24th. The English-language publishers licensed the novels and manga in May, and already released the first volume of the manga on November 22nd.
