Andy has been writing for UK Anime since 2006, and was the site's editor-in-chief until August 2017. Contrary to popular belief, Andy is not actually a robot.
To call Re:Zero one of the big hits of 2016 would be an understatement, with the franchise's anime adaptation causing an explosion of interest which ultimately led to an English language release for its original light novel series and manga adaptation.
To keep that flame burning, yesterday saw it confirmed that publisher Yen Press - who are also releasing that original light novel series - have also picked up spin-off series Re:Zero EX.
The first novel in the series - set for its English release on November 14th 2017 - focuses on Crusch Karsten and her knight Ferris, with volume two switching that focus to Wilhelm.
