    • Just found out about this one too, coming out in June:

      In Another World With My Smartphone: Vol.3
      June 14

  3. Legend of the Galactic Heroes Vol.4 and 5 won’t have an audiobook on launch. Haikasoru have commented on a request via Twitter, stating that it depends on demand.

    “Not immediately. Tell your friends about the first three audiobooks and maybe we can keep licensing them.”

    • Thanks for the heads up! I hope these volumes can get audiobooks as well — I think they’re a great way to read these stories.

  4. Yen Press has Reincarnated as a Slime listed for release in December on their official website. Man, they really like packing April, August, and December full of titles.

  5. I received my copy of Mikagura School Suite v1 from Amazon on the 14th so I guess they moved the release date forward 6 weeks?

    • I think the release date didn’t officially change, but people are getting their hands on the book early. This sometimes happens, though I’m not sure why. Hope you enjoy the story!

  6. 2018 stuff:

    Amazon actually has a whole bunch of Yen Press releases for 2018 up for preorder already:

    link

    Also two already up in 2018 from Seven Seas:
    – Arifureta vol 1 (Feb): link

    – Grimgar vol 5 (Also Feb): link

    And Vertical is continuing the Nisoisn flood:
    – Nekomonogatari White (Jan):: link

    – Strangulation: Kubishime Romanticist (Zaregoto 2) (Feb): link

    • Thanks, Negative Zero! Hopefully they’re all up now, but I’ll be looking through it all again in the next day or two.

  7. Not sure if you wanted to add this, but the original novel that inspired the infamous anime film by Satoshi Kon; The Perfect Blue Complete Metamorphosis is coming out on February 6th, 2018. Seven Seas Entertainment will be releasing it.

    • September 26 – Anime Supremacy, Vol.1 (Vertical publishing) book format

      September 30 – So I Became the Secretary of a Hero! Volume 1 (Cross Infinite World publishing) digital format

      • Thanks for all your help, Asuka! I might make “Other Novel” entries for the likes of Perfect Blue and Anime Supremacy, depends on if I find the time. There are a lot more LN releases these days, compared to a few years ago.

  8. Looks like Yen Press has pushed back the release of their November and December titles to November 28th and December 19th respectively.

    • There was a lot of shuffling of dates for November and December, but I think everything’s settled now? Thanks for your help, NegativeZero.

  9. Looks like yen press is finally going to release the Accel World light novel series at the end of October, in digital format, starting with the first four volumes.

    • Thanks, I’ll be sure to update the entry page for it. There will be digital releases for Isolator, Irregular at Magic High, and Kieli as well it looks like.

  10. From their website:

    Seven Seas will publish the True Tenchi Muyo! light novel series for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released on June 19, 2018.
