Sword Art Online abec Artworks: Wanderers first appeared in Japan in March 2020. Its focus is on Alicization and Sword Art Online Progressive. Though people familiar with Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris might see familiar faces there, as it includes art from games too. In Japan, it also featured the bonus side story called “prismatic colors” by Kawahara Reki.

Re:Zero: The Frozen Bond is a prequel looking at Emilia’s youth. (As such, there might be spoilers if you aren’t familiar with her original adventures in the main story.) That tale first appeared as a short story before becoming an anime and manga. People can see the English anime adaptation on Crunchyroll. Yen Press has also published other Re:Zero works, including the original light novels and manga.

Here are the tentative covers for both upcoming works. Neither is finalized at this time.
