anime connection

I know a lot of people wonder whether their favorite anime has a continuation when it is adapted from an original source. While the Internet at large has a lot of general information on a series, it’s a bit harder to find how much an anime adapts of the source material, or where to start reading after finishing the anime. This resource attempts to solve this shortcoming.

Remember that no matter how faithful an anime adaptation is, there are always changes to the source material, from conversations or thoughts cut out to expedited sequences in order to fit the story into a fixed number of episodes. For manga adaptations, sometimes filler is added in order to pad out the season or while waiting for new chapters. I will note when there are significant departures from the source material, or if there is a skipped minor character or conversation that will be brought up in future chapters.

Most of the release information here is based on availability in the United States. If you are from a different country, you may have different physical or streaming content available to you.

Amagi Brilliant Park

English availability: The light novel is licensed digitally by J-Novel Club. 2 e-books have been released, and volume 3 is currently being released in pre-publication.
Where should I start for new material?: The anime was rearranged, so it would be best to start reading from volume 1.


Arifureta

Anime: Announced in December 2017, scheduled to air in 2019.
Novels adapted: TBD.
English availability: The light novel is licensed digitally by J-Novel Club, with Seven Seas publishing physical editions. There are 8 released e-books and 3 released physical books.

Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 4.

Clockwork Planet

Anime: Originally aired in 2017, 12 episodes, adapted from light novel. Licensed in English by Funimation, no release date available. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Funimation.

English availability: The light novel is licensed digitally by J-Novel Club, with Seven Seas publishing physical editions. 3 e-books have been released. Volume 4 is currently being released in pre-publication. 2 light novel volumes have been released in print. The manga is licensed by Kodansha Comics, but is not caught up to the anime yet; volume 9 will be released on December 24, 2018.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 4, with a caveat. While the anime technically covers the first 3 volumes, some material has been rearranged for the anime. Since I have not watched the anime nor read all the novels, I cannot say for sure where the differences start, but my light research indicates that there is value in starting on novel 2.


3b63ca8429c5bed4b645000eab5208921515627980_full
Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody (デスマーチからはじまる異世界狂想曲)
Anime: Originally aired in 2018, 12 episodes, adapted from light novel. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 3.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 6 light novel volumes and 5 manga volumes have been released.
Where should I start for new material?: While the anime follows the general story beats from the books, the anime cut a lot of sequences from the novels. I would highly recommend reading from light novel 1. If you just want to discover what happens next, start with light novel 4.


Demon King Daimaou
Demon King Daimao (いちばんうしろの大魔王)
Anime: Originally aired in 2010, 12 episodes, adapted from light novel. Released in English by Sentai Filmworks. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 5.
English availability: The light novel is licensed digitally by J-Novel Club. 8 e-books have been released.

The Devil is a Part-Timer! (はたらく魔王さま!)
Anime: Originally aired in 2013, 13 episodes, adapted from light novel. Released in English by Funimation. Available for streaming on Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, and Netflix.

Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! (私、能力は平均値でって言ったよね!)

Novels adapted: Volumes 1 and 2 (speculative).

English availability: The light novel is licensed digitally by J-Novel Club, with Seven Seas publishing physical editions. There are 11 released e-books and 8 released physical books. Volume 12 is currently being released in pre-publication. The manga is licensed and completely released by Yen Press; it is complete at 3 volumes.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 3. The anime greatly compressed volume 2 for broadcast, but the light novels will feel quite different from the anime because of how much time we get inside Haruhiro’s head in the books. Start on volume 3 to get new material, but consider reading volumes 1 and 2 to get the full experience. The manga will not catch up to the anime for quite a while.


How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord

In Another World With My Smartphone
In Another World With My Smartphone (異世界はスマートフォンとともに)

Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 4.


infinite_stratos
Infinite Stratos (IS〈インフィニット・ストラトス〉)
Anime: Season 1 aired in 2011 with 12 episodes, season 2 aired in 2013 with another 12 episodes. Adapted from light novel. Released in English by Sentai Filmworks, including all 3 OAVs. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll.
Novels adapted: Most of volumes 1 through 8.
English availability: The light novel is licensed digitally by J-Novel Club. 4 e-books have been released. Volume 5 is currently being released in pre-publication.
Where should I start for new material?: While the first 3 light novels got adapted quite faithfully, season 2 deviated quite drastically, and a lot of content was relegated to OVAs, which you may not have access to. Start with light novel 4 to correct for this, otherwise jump straight to light novel 9 for content past the anime (World Purge adapts novel 8).


Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? (ダンジョンに出会いを求めるのは間違っているだろうか)
Anime: Originally aired in 2015, 13 episodes, adapted from light novel. Released in English by Sentai Filmworks. Available for streaming on Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, and Hulu. A second season has been announced; this entry will be updated when more details are available.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 5.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 12 light novel volumes and 9 manga volumes have been released.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 6. The manga has not caught up to the anime yet. This entry will be updated after the second season airs.


Sword Oratoria: DanMachi on the Side
Sword Oratoria: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side (ダンジョンに出会いを求めるのは間違っているだろうか外伝 ソード・オラトリア)
Anime: Originally aired in 2017, 12 episodes, adapted from light novel. Available for streaming on Amazon Prime, no English home video release yet.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 4.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 7 light novel volumes and 5 manga volumes have been released.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 5 or manga volume 3.


Kokoro Connect
Kokoro Connect (ココロコネクト)
Anime: Originally aired in 2012, 13 episodes + 4 OVA, adapted from light novel. Released in English by Sentai Filmworks. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 4.
English availability: The light novel is licensed digitally by J-Novel Club. There are 2 released e-books, and volume 3 is currently in pre-publication. The manga is licensed by Seven Seas, with all volumes released.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 5. The first manga series covers the same material as the anime.


KonoSuba
KonoSuba! (この素晴らしい世界に祝福を!)
Anime: Season 1 aired in 2016 with 10 episodes, season 2 aired in 2017 with another 10 episodes. Adapted from light novel. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll, no English home video release yet.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 4.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 6 light novel volumes and 7 manga volumes have been released.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 5, or the very end of manga volume 8; the last few pages of volume 7 are an epilogue to the end of the events in season 2, so catch that as well.


Log Horizon
Log Horizon (ログ・ホライズン)
Anime: Season 1 aired in 2013-2014 with 25 episodes, and season 2 aired in 2014-2015 with another 25 episodes. Adapted from light novel. Released in English by Sentai Filmworks. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 10.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 10 light novel volumes have been released. Only 1 volume of the manga has been released. Volume 11 is scheduled to be released on January 22, 2019.
Where should I start for new material?: Volume 11. Volume 9 is notable because the anime adapted the entire book into only a single episode. Community consensus is that season 2, which adapted novels 6-10, left a lot of material out, so it would be worth reading from volume 6.


The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar
The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar (百錬の覇王と聖約の戦乙女)
Anime: Current airing as of July 7, 2018.
Novels adapted: Possibly through volume 6.
English availability: The light novel is licensed digitally by J-Novel Club. There are 4 released e-books. Volume 5 is currently being released in pre-publication.
Where should I start for new material?: The consensus is that the anime was not a good adaptation, so I would recommend reading from volume 1.


The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱)
Anime: Season 1 aired in 2006 with 14 episodes, and season 2 aired in 2009 with another 14 episodes. Adapted from light novel. Released in English by Funimation. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Funimation. There is also an anime movie (The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya) released in English by Funimation.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 5, as well as most of the stories in volumes 5 and 6.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. Both are caught up with releases in Japan.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 5 (The Rampage of Haruhi Suzumiya) if you want to read all the short stories, otherwise volume 7 (The Intrigues of Haruhi Suzumiya) to continue the main plot. Manga volume 10 should be the start of new material.


My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! (乙女ゲームの破滅フラグしかない悪役令嬢に転生してしまった)
Anime: Announced October 2018, air date TBA.
Novels adapted: TBD.
English availability: The light novel is licensed by J-Novel Club. There is 1 released e-book. Volume 2 is currently being released in pre-publication. The manga is licensed by Seven Seas, with volume 1 scheduled to be released on July 30, 2019.


No Game No Life
No Game No Life (ノーゲーム・ノーライフ)
Anime: Originally aired in 2014, 12 episodes, adapted from light novel. Released in English by Sentai Filmworks. Available for streaming on Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, and Hulu. Digital episodes available on iTunes. There is also a movie (No Game No Life Zero) licensed by Sentai Filmworks but with no home video release yet.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 3. The movie adapts volume 6 (it’s a prequel, don’t worry about being lost if you just want to watch the adaptations). Note that the final scene in the anime series is actually from the epilogue of volume 6, not the end of volume 3.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 7 light novel volumes have been released. The manga is stalled in Japan and will not catch up any time soon.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volumes 4 and 5, then volume 7.


Outbreak Company
Outbreak Company (アウトブレイク・カンパニー 萌える侵略者)
Anime: Originally aired in 2013, 12 episodes, adapted from light novel. Released in English by Sentai Filmworks. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu.
Novels adapted: Various parts of volumes 1-4 and 7 were adapted or rearranged for the anime.
English availability: The light novel is licensed digitally by J-Novel Club. There are 5 released e-books, and volume 6 is currently being released in pre-publication.
Where should I start for new material?: Due to the confusing adaptation of the source material, you would probably want to start on volume 2 to be safe.


Overlord
Overlord (オーバーロード)
Anime: Season 1 aired in 2015, and seasons 2 and 3 aired in 2018; all seasons have had 13 episodes. Adapted from light novel. Released in English by Funimation. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu. There are also 2 anime movies that currently have no English release; these movies cover the same material as the 1st season of the anime.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 9.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 8 light novel volumes and 8 manga volumes have been released; the manga adaptation has not caught up to the anime.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 10. Note that the anime does not depict one scene at the end of light novel volume 2, but this discrepancy has yet to play out in the translated novels.


Re:Zero
Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World (Re:ゼロから始める異世界生活)
Anime: Originally aired in 2016, 25 episodes, adapted from light novel. Funimation will release the English-dubbed home video in June 2018. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Steam.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 8 and part of 9.
English availability: Both the light novel and the multiple mangas are licensed by Yen Press. The releases have not caught up to the anime.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 9, as not all of its contents were animated. The English translation is currently only at volume 8. The Japanese manga is very far behind, so the English manga will not be caught up any time soon. The Re:Zero EX spin-off covers characters and events outside of Subaru’s perspective.


The Rising of the Shield Hero
The Rising of the Shield Hero (盾の勇者の成り上がり)
Anime: Scheduled to air in January 2019.
Novels adapted: TBD.
English availability: The light novel and manga are licensed by One Peace Books. 12 light novels and 9 manga volumes have been released.


Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers
Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers (六花の勇者)
Anime: Originally aired in 2015, 12 episodes, adapted from light novel. Released in English by Ponycan USA. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Steam.
Novels adapted: Volume 1.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 5 light novel volumes have been released, while the manga only covers the same material as the anime.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 2.


So I'm a Spider, So What?
So I’m a Spider, So What? (蜘蛛ですが、なにか?)
Anime: Announced in July 2018, air date TBA.
Novels adapted: TBD.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 3 light novels and 3 manga volumes have been released.


Spice and Wolf
Spice and Wolf (狼と香辛料)
Anime: Season 1 aired in 2008 with 13 episodes, and season 2 aired in 2009 with another 12 episodes. Adapted from light novel. Released in English by Funimation. Available for streaming on Funimation and Hulu.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 3 and 5, as well as a couple short stories from volume 7.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. All 20 light novels have been fully translated, with the follow-up series, Wolf & Parchment, currently being released.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 4 was skipped in the anime, then 6 to continue the story after the anime ended. If you prefer the manga, I have not read it myself, but, comparing the volume summaries to the light novels, I would start on volume 7 for LN4, then don’t skip any volumes thereafter since it mashes up some of the stories for later LNs.


Strike the Blood
Strike the Blood (ストライク・ザ・ブラッド)
Anime: Originally aired in 2013-2014, 24 episodes, adapted from light novel. Released in English by Discotek Media. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Netflix. There is also a 2-episode OVA titled Kingdom of Valkyria as well as a “second season” (“II”) of OVAs.
Novels adapted: This is a bit confusing. The first season covers volumes 1 through 6, then the final 2 episodes seem to be an adaptation of the side novel Strike the Blood EX. The first two OVAs are an original story written by the original author. Then, the so-called “second season” consists of 8 OVA episodes that appear to adapt volumes 9, 11, and 12.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 10 light novels have been released, while the manga has not caught up yet.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 7. If you have seen Strike the Blood II, you can (ostensibly) skip volumes 9, 11, and 12 as well.


sao
Sword Art Online (ソードアート・オンライン)
Anime: Season 1 aired in 2012 with 25 episodes, and season 2 aired in 2014 with another 24 episodes. Adapted from light novel. Released in English by Aniplex of America. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Netflix. Digital episodes available on iTunes. An original anime movie, Ordinal Scale, also released by Aniplex of America, links the events of the first 2 seasons with the 3rd season of anime. Season 3 is currently airing, and is scheduled for 1 full year (~48 episodes) starting Autumn 2018.
Novels adapted: The 18 main series books. Season 1 covers books 1-4 plus 2 stories in book 8; season 2 covers books 5-7 plus the remaining story in book 8; season 3 will cover books 9-18. The Alicization side stories, Moon Cradle, do not appear to be part of season 3.
English availability: Both the light novel and manga are licensed by Yen Press. 14 light novel volumes have been released, while the manga is caught up but no continuations past the end of the anime have been licensed yet.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 19 is a side story set in the Alicization arc. There is also another series, Sword Art Online: Progressive, also licensed by Yen Press, that revisits the Aincrad arc and covers events in much more detail; 5 light novel volumes have been released. This entry will be updated after the third season airs.


That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (転生したらスライムだった件)
Anime: Announced in March 2018, currently airing in Autumn 2018. Scheduled for 24 episodes.
Novels adapted: Volumes 1 through 4 (speculative).
English availability: The light novel is licensed by Yen Press, and the manga is licensed by Kodansha. 3 light novels and 8 manga volumes have been released.
Where should I start for new material?: Light novel volume 5. The manga in Japan will probably not catch up to the anime for a while.


A Certain Scientific Railgun
A Certain Scientific Railgun (とある科学の超電磁砲)
Anime: Season 1 aired in 2009-2010 with 24 episodes, and season 2 (“S”) aired in 2013 with another 24 episodes. Adapted from manga. Released in English by Funimation. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu. A third season will air in 2019.
Manga adapted: Volumes 1 through most of 7.
English availability: The manga is licensed by Seven Seas, 13 volumes have been released and they are caught up with Japanese releases.
Where should I start for new material?: Manga volume 7, as the anime has not adapted all of the chapters in that volume. Note that the anime contains a prodigious amount of filler (the second half of season 1 and the last third of season 2), so events or development that happened in the filler will not have any impact on the source material. This entry will be updated after the third season airs.


Haikyu!!
Haikyu!! (ハイキュー!!)
Anime: Season 1 aired in 2014 with 25 episodes, season 2 aired in 2015-2016 with another 25 episodes, and season 3 aired in 2016 with 10 episodes. Adapted from manga. Released in English by Sentai Filmworks; no release date for season 3 available. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll.
Manga adapted: Volumes 1 through 21, plus chapter 207 from volume 23.
English availability: The manga is licensed by VIZ. 28 volumes have been released.
Where should I start for new material?: The last chapter of manga volume 21 continues past the end of the season 3 of the anime.


Kaguya-sama: Love is War
Kaguya-sama: Love is War (かぐや様は告らせたい ~天才たちの恋愛頭脳戦~)
Anime: Announced in May 2018, scheduled to air in January 2019.
Manga adapted: TBD.
English availability: The manga is licensed by VIZ. 5 volumes have been released.


Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid (小林さんちのメイドラゴン)
Anime: Originally aired in 2017, 13 episodes, adapted from manga. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Funimation, no English home video release yet.
Manga adapted: Most chapters in volumes 1 through 4.
English availability: The manga is licensed by Seven Seas, 7 volumes have been released.
Where should I start for new material?: This is an interesting adaptation since there isn’t much overarching story to follow, so the anime has some anime-only content, as well as some remixed versions of manga chapters, likely because there is a new character introduced at the end of manga volume 3, so chapters had to be rewritten without this character, plus the emotional climax in episodes 12 and 13 was expanded when there was less impact in the manga. Start at least on manga volume 3, but get 2 if you want to experience some of the differences between the anime and the manga.


Monster Musume
Monster Musume (モンスター娘のいる日常)
Anime: Originally aired in 2015, 12 episodes, adapted from manga. Released in English by Sentai Filmworks. Available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu.
Manga adapted: Most of volumes 1 through 6.
English availability: The manga is licensed by Seven Seas, 13 volumes have been released. Volume 14 is scheduled to be released on December 18, 2018.
Where should I start for new material?: The middle of volume 6 is where the anime ended, so start there to get the immediate continuation, but, if you want to catch any skipped chapters, start instead with volume 4. Volumes 1-3 were adapted entirely.



One Punch Man (ワンパンマン)
Anime: Originally aired in 2015, 12 episodes, adapted from Murata Yuusuke’s manga remake of ONE’s webcomic. Released in English by VIZ. Available for streaming on Amazon Prime, Funimation, Hulu, Netflix, Steam, and VIZ. A second season of anime is due to air in 2018.
Manga adapted: Volumes 1 through 7.
English availability: Murata Yuusuke’s manga is licensed by VIZ, 14 manga volumes have been released.
Where should I start for new material?: Manga volume 8. However, each volume contains short stories that were not animated for the broadcast of the anime, so you may want to check out all volumes anyway. This entry will be updated after the second season airs.
