With how the anime has pushed "Seishun Buta Yarou Series" to one of the top players on the forums, I wondered if any of the stuff I want has an upcoming anime.
Then I remembered this one!
I mentioned it back, when we were guessing AX licenses and I thought Vertical might pick it up, since it's published by Kodansha Taiga (with whom they have a good relationship) and has an upcoming anime.
Zen Seizaki, a public prosecutor at Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office, is investigating a case of illegal clinical research related to a drug company and a university. During the investigation, he finds a file that Shin Inaba, an anesthesiologist, kept, which includes blood that is mixed with hair, skin, and a paper written with letter F. As he investigates, he realized there's a hidden plot that is connected with a huge election as well as to a certain person who is in charge of it.
The title has a lot of things making it seem outta place here:
- Political Drama
- SF setting
- and it seems like it has a bit of philosophy about suicide , mercy killing and assisted suicide. (or that's what I got from the anime PV)
However, hear me out!
- It's short series so, not much of risk.
- It's like a bet on the anime to get more diverse fan base.
They like the anime, search for it and find the novels, which may lead to gaining a new type group of fandom under JNC who are interested in other type of works (maybe, darker or more serious or even help older titles that fit the description).
- The anime won't be around any time soon, so there is some time to get it licensed and translated before that.
- It's from Taiga so It's not strictly a LN so there is not a lot of insert artwork to license or print.
The only downside or problem I can think of is:
There might be some lines around Kodansha Taiga, novels and Box by Vertical (Well, it's only a possibility, nothing explicitly said or known)
Ah, Mado Nozaki's Babylon. It is a shame we don't have any of his works translated. I have a few them on my kindle, but haven't gotten to reading them yet. A friend of mine described Babylon as a "Kamisu Reina with grown up characters".
Also, yeah, this isn't a light novel. Taiga sells all of their books under general literature.
