Asato Asato's novels have currently airing TV anime
Kadokawa's listing for the June issue of its Comic Alive magazine lists a new prequel manga for Asato Asato's 86 light novel series titled 86 -Fragmental Neoteny-. The listing does not provide a description for the manga. The magazine will ship on April 26.
Asato launched the novel series under Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko imprint in April 2017. Shirabi (The Ryuo's Work Is Never Done!, Myriad Colors Phantom World) is drawing the illustrations, and the artist I-IV (Aldnoah.Zero, Re:CREATORS) is in charge of mechanical design. The light novel series has a manga adaptation by Motoki Yoshihara in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine. Yen Press is also releasing the manga in English. The light novel series is also inspiring a Gakuen 86 (Academy 86) manga by Suzume Somemiya in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine.
The novels are inspiring a television anime adaptation that premiered on April 10. The anime will air for two cours (quarters of the year). However, the two cours will be split, and will not air one after another. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan, and it will also stream an English dub.
