Anime News Network reviews I Hear the Sunspot: Limit Vol 3

Filed under: News — Staff @ 14:59:25

From its first volume, Yuki Fumino's I Hear the Sunspot has been a thoughtful, gently-paced story about two young men finding each other and learning how they want to live their lives. It has impressively maintained that tone and feeling even as the protagonists grow together and apart by turns, and the final volume of its second series, I Hear the Sunspot: Limit, is no exception.

Anime Nation weighs in on Farming Life with the manga's second official review!

Filed under: News — Staff @ 17:00:48

While the traditional Japanese literary concept of living a lifetime in another world may date back to the Japanese Urashima Taro fairy tale, the modern provision of the concept arose within anime in 1983 and has steadily become more entrenched, prolific, and diverse. Author Naito Kinosuke cultivated a unique breed of the isekai concept in 2016 with the premiere of the light novel series A Leisurely Farmer in Another World (Isekai Nonbiri Nouka). The pleasant, innocuous story quickly gained popularity and spawned a manga adaptation in 2018. One Peace Books is now bringing the popular manga adaptation to American readers with an authorized English translation. The first volume introduces the setting and scenario, founding cast, and the story's quirky amiable tone.
