Move over, Kirino, Eromanga Sensei’s on her way!
The latest issue of Dengeki magazine revealed that an anime adaptation of Eromanga Sensei – Imōto to Akazu no Ma (Eromanga Sensei – My Little Sister and the Locked Room) is in the works.
Eromanga Sensei is a light novel series by Tsukasa Fushimi and illustator Hiro Kanzaki. The series, which began in December 2013 is being published under Kadokawa’s light novel imprint.
The series revolves around Masamune Izumi, a light novel author who’s still in high school. Masamune’s sister Sagiri is a shut-in, who hasn’t left her room fr a full year, going as far as to force her brother to deliver meals when she stomps on the floor. Masamune, though, would like nothing more than to see his sister rejoin the outside world, as the two have no other family.
Fushimi and Kanzaki previously collaborated on the OreImo light novel series, which received an anime adaptation in 2010.
In 2014, Fushimi commented on Eromanga Sensei, stating that
I feel that Kirino from OreImo is a pure, innocent girl. This time, the heroine, Sagiri, may seem innocent, but she is quite dirty. I hope readers enjoy finding the differences between the two heroines. […] I want readers to think, ‘The title is so embarassing, but I’m glad I read this!’
Last year, Dengeki and streaming service NicoNico collaborated on an OreImo x Eromanga Sensei crossver series. Fans voted on the direction of the four-episode show’s plot. You can check the entire series out below.
