Published May 5, 2019 — #yen press #light novels #licensing #manga

The reputable otaku publisher Yen Press announced 6 new acquisitions slated for release on November 2019. One particular title is definitely the eye catcher of these manga and light-novels.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai

The beloved franchise recently adapted to anime Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai is having its manga (a two-part omnibus edition) version brought to the West. The story revolves around Sakuta Azusagawa, who, after involving himself in a supernatural event, ends up amongst girls with the same problem he once had — one of them, Sakurajima Mai, the popular actress and model. The manga is an adaptation of the light novel source by author Hajime Kamoshida, artist Tsugumi Nanamiya, and designer Keeji Mizoguchi.

If you can't get enough of Sakuramaji Mai, the Bunny Girl that stole our hearts at the start of anime season in Fall, we have also covered her new scale figures in our blog post: Merch Coverage: Anime Fall '18.
