Other Tuesday- Moribito

The Moribito series is a twelve volume series of Japanese fantasy novels, written by Nahoko Uehashi. The first novel in the series, Guardian of the Spirit, has been adapted into numerous media, including a radio drama, manga series, and an anime adaption. Scholastic released the first novel in English in June, 2008. The English translation of the first book, published by Arthur A. Levine Books, appeared in the summer of 2008; the second book’s translation appeared in April 2009. Due to unsatisfactory sales, publishing of the series in the U.S. has since been indefinitely suspended by Scholastic.

Setting

Moribito is set in a fantasy analogue of historical Asia. The setting includes several nations, such as Kanbal, a rugged, Himalayan-like kingdom, and New Yogo, a fertile empire that combines elements of feudal Japan and Southwest China. The supernatural plays very prominently into the world of the series, with the physical world being referred to as Sagu and a parallel spirit world being referred to as Nayug.

Other Tuesday- Blood +

Two Japanese light novel series were commission and created for the Blood+ anime series produced by Production I.G and Aniplex. The first, also named Blood+, written by Ryō Ikehata with illustrations by Chizu Hashii, is a four volume series and the official novel adaptation of the anime series. It expands on the events of the anime and gives greater background information on the battle against chiropterans. The first volume was released in Japan on May 1, 2006 by Kadokawa Shoten under their male-oriented Sneaker Bunko label. The remaining volumes released every four months until the final volume was released on May 1, 2007.

The second adaptation, Blood+: Russian Rose, is a two-volume series written by Karino Minazuki and illustrated by Ryō Takagi. It was released at the same time as Blood+, with the first volume released on May 1, 2006 and the second on September 1, 2006. The series, published under Kadokawa’s more female-oriented Beans Bunko label, details Saya and Hagi’s lives at the start of the 20th century and the Russian Revolution.

Both novel series have been licensed for release in English in North America by Dark Horse Comics. Dark Horse released the first translated Blood+ novel on March 19, 2008.
