High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even in Another World

Launch Time: Fall 2019

Territories: Worldwide ex. Asia

 

Synopsis:

Seven high school students are involved in an airplane crash. When they woke up, they found themselves in a parallel world where magic and beastmen exist. Of course, they panicked at their sudden unexpected predicament... or not? Instead, they create a power plant in a world that doesn't have electricity, they did a little extra work and managed to take economic control over a metropolis, they managed to repay their gratitude to some oppressed citizens by upending a corrupt government, and basically do whatever they feel like?!

 

You probably guessed by now, but these high school kids aren't normal. They are all high school prodigies who stood at the top of the fields of politics, economics, science, and medicine.

 

This is an otherworldly revolutionary tale featuring the Earth's dream team of individuals with superior intellect and technology being thrown into a world where super technology doesn't exist.

Ascendance of a Bookworm

Launch Time: Fall 2019

Territories: Worldwide ex. Asia

 

Synopsis:

When she woke up, she was in a parallel world...

 

Avid bookworm and college student Motosu Urano ends up dying in an unforeseen accident. This came right after the news that she would finally be able to work as a librarian like she had always dreamed of.

 

When she regained consciousness, she was reborn as Myne, the daughter of a poor soldier. She was in the town of Ehrenfest, a town that existed in a parallel world and had a harsh class system where the magic-wielding nobles ruled supreme. But Myne doesn't really let that get to her. After all, as long as she had books, she didn't really need anything else.

 

However, this world had a very low literacy rate and no real way of printing books, so books were scarce and belonged only to the nobles. They were completely out of reach for the daughter of some poor soldier. But that doesn't stop Myne from wanting to read books, so she makes a decision...

 

"If there aren't any books, I'll just create some."

 

Myne might not have energy or money, but she has an endless amount of knowledge from all the books she read in her previous life. Will Myne actually be able to make some books? Myne's adventure to create books starts now.
