Do You Like Your Mom? Light Novel Sales Exceed 100,000
Dachima Inaka's light novel series Do You Like Your Mom? Her Normal Attack is Two Attacks at Full Power has had successful, albeit unique, campaign runs. The first volume sold 12,000 copies in nine days and its publisher, Fujimi Shobo, announced the first and second volume sales combined have topped 100,000 earlier this month.
In the light novel and anime series Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?, Masato is stuck adventuring with his cute and surprisingly overpowered mom when they get thrown into an RPG world. Their adventuring life was full of peril, so it's understandable that Mamako wants to take a break from slaying monsters to make sure her son (and all her readers) are prepared to pass their exams.
A new collaborative study book featuring Mamako will help students study for their junior high level English courses. The study guide will hit store shelves in Japan on March 28. Mamako, along with other characters from the series, explain conversational English and grammar. Within the guide, the character Porta obtains an English study guide and decides to adapt its lessons while adventuring with the cast.
The Let's Study English With Your Mom guidebook includes English phrases like "My mother can defeat monsters in an instant!" and "You must adventure with your parents." It's hard to say how useful the lessons are outside of adventuring scenarios.
Customers that purchase the book will be able to download bonus audio recordings by Mamako voice actress Ai Kayano, including a review quiz.
The television anime adaptation of Pochi Iida's Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks? light novel series premiered on July 12. Aniplex of America licensed the series, and it will streamed on Crunchyroll and Funimation as it aired in Japan. Yen Press licensed the light novels and manga adaptation and will release the fifth light novel in English on March 24.

Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.

Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.

CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.

Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...

Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.

Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
