Yen Press announced four new manga and light novel acquisitions at New York Comic Con including a new Goblin Slayer series.

Goblin Slayer Side Story II: Dai Katana by Kumo Kagyu with art by Aoki Shogo and original illustrations by lack will arrive sometime in 2021.

The manga series adapts the upcoming light novel release and continues the story of the Sword Maiden as she takes on the Demon King.

Here’s the official description, “Not a soul knows how the death and destruction started. Only one thing is certain-it came from the north. Deep within the Dungeon of the Dead is where the the Demon King resides and the only hope humanity has of defeating this great evil rests on the shoulders of a handful of adventurers. This tale of Sword Maiden’s past smells of ash and sounds like the ringing of bare steel.”

When A Magician’s Pupil Smiles

Along with the new Goblin Slayer series, Yen Press also revealed they acquired Chisaki Kanai’s When a Magician’s Pupil Smiles manga.

Here’s the official description, “Ouka Namae, a magician’s pupil, is incapable of feeling emotion. That is…he’s almost incapable. There is one particular circumstance when his feelings rise to the surface, but the scenario that unleashes them is too dark to even contemplate…”

Yen Press reveals this manga will be an omnibus edition collecting the entire run of the dark supernatural manga.

I Was a Bottom-Tier Bureaucrat for 1,500 Years, and the Demon King Made Me a Minister

Here’s the official description, “I Was a Bottom-Tier Bureaucrat for 1,500 Years, and the Demon King Made Me a Minister is a spin-off of I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level, a slice-of-life fantasy that has been rapidly growing in popularity with an anime adaptation on the horizon.
