Today is Christmas Eve! Although Manga Entertainment UK decided not to give everyone an actual physical present (I guess to be fair, that would be expensive). However, they did give us a special treat for the end of the year – three new license announcements!
HighSchool DxD, the popular ecchi fantasy series is the biggest name of the three. Super-pervert Issei Hyodo was a normal human before finding himself tricked into a date and ambushed by a fallen angel. The next morning, he wakes up to find beautiful and well-endowed third year student Rias Gremory lying naked in his bed (as you do). Rias reveals herself as a devil, revealing that she is the reason that Issei is still alive, but he is now a devil and she is his new master. A second season of the original 2012 anime aired this past summer. MangaUK will be releasing the series on both DVD and Blu-ray in 2014.
The Devil Is A Part-Timer is the next licensed title. This comedy anime aired this Spring. When the Demon Lord and one of his Generals flees the Demon World into modern day Tokyo, the Demon Lord has to take up a part-time job at a fast food restaurant. Things get complicated however, when the Demon Lord who meets a girl…who is the hero from the Demon World that they escaped from! The series will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray next yar.
Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero was the third announcement. This harem/action series originally aired last summer. Following an international training organisation called Babel which protects young people returning from another world. Akatsuki, a wayward hero, returns from a world of swords and magic called Alayzard with the daughter of the last Dark Lord, Myuu. No release date or format have been confirmed yet.
The distributor also teased that new Code Geass news will be announced in the New Year.
