Death March Anime adaptation please

I have no knowledge of this LN, but if I'm judging solely by the synopsis, I bet an anime will come within the next year or two. These "stuck in a video game/parallel world" anime seem to be all over the place as of late, so Japan will definitely capitalize on that fact soon enough.


If you have time, take a look in the web novel, it's really good and weird(in a good way).

so Alderamin sold around 45k copies, that's around 30k boost for 1st month.
Decent boost, though on the low side. Don't know what kadokawa is doing, this series deserves way better advertising than it's currently getting.

19. *4,515 *40,962 High School DxD Vol.22

Fab to see Shinmai spin-offs selling well also. No idea what this one is about though. DxD still going strong is great as well.

Shame that Masou Gakuen HxH isn't getting a noticeable boost, my hopes for more anime material fading by the week.

I love those weekly summaries. I always find new things to watch/read! Thanks ;)

Glad to see the series doing well! I wonder whether SHAFT will animate the Off-Season though...
I hope so too though some arcs will be particularly difficult to animate due to the way they are written.
