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.

Yattatachi reviews The New Gate Vol 2

Filed under: News — Staff @ 16:03:16

In Volume 2 of The New Gate, our main character, Shin, continues to do what every MMORPG player does best: go on quests. Using the adventurer guild's quest board, he finds rank-appropriate challenges to undertake (even though he could actually do anything he wants) and continues to gather information about the world, resolving incidents as they come along.

Manga Worth Reading reviews The New Gate Vol 1

Filed under: News — Staff @ 15:56:52

What sets this book apart from other Isekai is the concept. Shin is overpowered, like many isekai protagonists. Unlike just about every other story of its type, there's a reason he's as strong as he is. He earned all his powers and skills through years of grinding in the MMO version of The New Gate. The isekai version may not be exactly the world he remembers. But, it's close enough that he can walk around and do things without feeling like an outsider.
