Severed from their everyday lives, they’re faced with fighting monsters, eating food with no flavor, and being unable to die?! Amid the chaos in “Elder Tale” Akihabara, veteran gamer Shiroe locates his old friend Naotsugu and teams up with the beautiful female assassin Akatsuki. Together they embark on an adventure to change the world as they know it!

  5. Thanks for such a great resource! I’ve been searching for months for light novel in a digital book format that I could read on my kindle, and all I’ve been able to find are the manga versions. I’ve come to understand that yen on only publishes the manga in America under yen press and I’d rather pay for them than read pirated versions. Does anyone know why Japanese light novels aren’t available in America digitally? It seems like a no brainier to me. They could be sold for 5-10 dollars and they’d make a killing. I’d have spent hundreds already lol.

    If anyone knows about if or when they’ll start releasing Log Horizon or SAO on id love to know.

    Thanks again!

    • I have an “ebook available” tag for all light novels that have a digital version officially available in English — feel free to check that out to see what titles are included so far. Log Horizon is print-only at the moment, but that may change one day. I imagine Yen Press would like to get the digital rights for all the titles they localize, but this might not be a simple matter. But some titles such as Sword Art Online started out as print-only, but now it looks like some volumes are getting ebook releases. Perhaps in time this will happen with Log Horizon as well.

      • Thanks Cho! I hope so as well. I know they’d make a lot more money in the digital realm than print, as manufacturing and shipping costs would be non-existent. There are so many I want to read but don’t have access to, and I’d rather not read a pirated copy.

        I appreciate your response, and very much appreciate your site.
