Alongside this art book Yen Press is debuting the long awaited light novel for the popular High School DxD series that has seen numerous anime adaptations over the ears, Sadako at the End of the World which is follows the story of a pair of sisters that play an infamous video tape after the world has already came to an end only to be happy that Sadako has appeared in front of them.
The light novel series In the Land of Leadale will also be debuting in October where a girls’ last memories are only of her being on failing life support after a near-fatal accident left her with only the VR world of Leadale as an escape.
