So I’m a Spider, So What? The Daily Lives of the Kumoko Sisters is a gag manga spin-off of the light novel series.

I Kept Pressing the 100-Million Button and Came Out on Top is a quirky light novel series with a powerful protagonist who was cursed to live millions of years going through tortuous training.

Before he knows it, Soya is making rogue adventurers eat lead, beating up petty nobles, and taking on dungeons where death lurks around every corner.

The Otherworlder, Exploring the Dungeon is a fun light novel series that cleverly combines science fiction and fantasy elements—a story about an unlikely hero and his defective AI in an alternate world. This ongoing series is reminiscent of light novel favorites, such as Combatants Will Be Dispatched! and High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even in Another World!

With his reputation on the line, Bash sets out on a quest of a lifetime… all for the explicit purpose of getting laid.

While it seems that light novels have addressed nearly every topic in a fantasy setting, very few have addressed dating in another world quite like the hilarious and eccentric story that is Orc Eroica. This series is a fun read for those who enjoy light novels with unique takes on fantasy worlds, such as If the RPG World Had Social Media…

The Hero Laughs While Walking the Path of Vengeance a Second Time (light novel)
Story by Kizuka Nero

Summoned to a fantasy world as a hero, Kaito Utage defeats the Demon Lord alongside a band of noble adventurers… only to be double crossed and brutally murdered by his former allies.

The Hero Laughs While Walking the Path of Vengeance a Second Time is a dramatic and compelling isekai that heads into darker territories than most, one led by a crazed antihero. This dark tale is perfect for fans of light novel series such as Torture Princess: Fremd Torturchen and The King of the Dead at the Dark Palace.

New York, New York (manga)

Hulu Adds the Third Season of the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Anime

The Fandom Post is reporting that Hulu is now streaming the third season of the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? anime. According to the report, the entire season is available on the service in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

The story of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is described as:

Some adventurers delve into the sprawling labyrinths beneath the city of Orario to find fame and fortune. Others come to test their skills against the legions of monsters lurking in the darkness below. However, Bell Cranel’s grandfather told him a different reason: it’s a great place to rescue (and subsequently meet) girls. Now that Bell’s a dungeon delver himself, the ladies he’s encountering aren’t the helpless damsels in distress he’d imagined, and one of them, the beautiful swordswoman Ais Wallenstein, keeps rescuing Bell instead. As embarrassing as that is, it’s nothing compared to what happens when goddesses get involved. Freya, Hephaistos, and Loki, with their powerful Familias, are intimidating enough, but there’s one goddess whose relationship with Bell is certain to spark trouble.
