J-Novel Club Celebrates the New Year with Three Manga Licenses

I Shall Survive Using Potions! and more are on the way

J-Novel Club decided to ring in the new year in style with the announcement of three new manga titles. The latest licenses are I Shall Survive Using Potions!, The Magic in this Other World is Too Far Behind!, and Animeta!, and the J-Novel Club site went live with the first three chapters of each. 


Hibiki Kokonoe's I Shall Survive Using Potions! is based on the light novels written by FUNA and illustrated by Sukima. Here's how J-Novel Club sums it up:


One day, the supervisor in charge of watching over Earth was taking care of a distortion, when they made a mistake that caused Kaoru Nagase to lose her physical body. Not only that, but reincarnating her into a different, less culturally-advanced world is the only thing they can offer to do for her. Not one to take this turn of events sitting down, Kaoru makes a demand: the power to create potions at any time she pleases, with whatever effect she wants it to have—and it doesn't stop there either. She asks for a magical Item Box, the ability to understand and speak every language, and the same body she had back when she was a fifteen-year-old girl. Using her newfound powers, Kaoru has to try and make a stable life for herself in a whole new world!



Based on Gamei Hitsuji's light novel series, The Magic in this Other World is Too Far Behind! features illustrations by himesuz, with Ao Nekonabe taking over as of the seventh volume.



Suimei and two of his best friends find themselves mysteriously summoned to another world. There's a cute princess, magic galore, a Demon Lord that needs to be defeated, and a world that needs to be saved—the works! Too bad Suimei isn't interested. His friends are all too ready to play the parts of heroes, but Suimei just wants to get home. He has an advantage as a magician... but he's in for a rude awakening when he finds out what actually passes for magic in these parts.



Animeta! marks the debut manga for Yaso Hanamura. J-Novel Club describes it like so:


Miyuki Sanada had just been going through the motions until one night she came across a certain late-night anime that made her feel true passion for the first time in her life. She was so impressed by the production that she decided to become an animator herself! But was that really such a good idea? Harsh lessons and even harsher financial realities await as Miyuki strives to make her dream come true.
