Your Lie in April tells the story of Kosei Arima. A child prodigy in piano who steps away from the limelight after the death of his mother effects him so badly he can no longer hear the notes he plays. Fastforward a few years and Kosei is introduced to Kaori Miyazono, a free-spirited violinist who slowly encourages Kosei to take up piano once more. It’s a simple story on the surface but with a brilliant amount of depth under it all.
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is an interestingly named light novel that Yen Press have just started releasing under their Yen ON imprint. It would be fair to say that going into the series I really wasn’t expecting a great deal, more than anything I wanted to give the series a chance before the anime is aired later this year. However what I found from reading the novel left me pleasantly surprised and now somehow I’m eagerly awaiting more of this story.
