One of our favourite manga and light novel publishers, Yen Press, has today announced that they will be publishing the original light novels for Log Horizon, The Devil Is a Part-Timer and No Game, No Life in 2015.
All three series have become big names in and outside of Japan. All have received anime adaptations with Log Horizon being given a second season in October.
Good and bad news came from Anime Limited in regards to their Gurren Lagann release. The bad news, which isn’t so bad, is that the release has been moved from the 1st of September to the 29th of September. However, the move has been made due to some rather good news and to allow Anime Limited to polish the release a little bit more.
I approached the first volume of The Seven Deadly Sins with a curiosity. I’d been interested in the series since Crunchyroll added it to their manga service when it first launched, but due to the huge collection of other titles on offer I ended up setting series aside. However, now I’ve picked up the first volume of the series in print and have gone through it to review!

We’ve all heard the news in the last 24 hours: Studio Ghibli is taking a brief break from producing anime in order to do a reshuffle of the company. This news has got many people speculating just what would happen if Studio Ghibli really did shut up shop.
Studio Ghibli was the introduction to anime for a lot of people. Admittedly, it wasn’t for me as I was introduced to anime through Pokémon, Digimon, and CardCaptors. Even though I didn’t get into anime because of Studio Ghibli I still remember the first time I saw one of their films. The first of their work I ever saw was Spirited Away, which I fell in love with very quickly. After seeing Spirited Away I made the effort to seek out every other Studio Ghibli film and found firm favourites in the likes of Howl’s Moving Castle,My Neighbour Totoro and The Wind Rises, which I reviewed for the site not long after getting to see it. I love Ghibli movies, what else can I say, but despite this I’m not personally too upset by the idea of them closing.
