Six light novels were released on April 19th:

Congratulations to Spice and Wolf for getting all 17 volumes of its series released in English! I believe this is the first time a light novel series with over ten volumes managed to get all its books translated and published for English release. How many of you are completing your collection of Spice and Wolf this month?

The Irregular at Magic High School volume 1 Synopsis:

Brother and sister Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are just about to start their first year at the renowned First Magic High School of Japan.

Black Bullet volume 3 Synopsis:
Rentaro, Enju, Kisara, and the fearsome sniper Tina–just when they thought the future was looking slightly less uncertain, they’re confronted with a terrible discovery: One of the giant monoliths that protects Tokyo Area from invasion by the monstrous Gastrea is on the verge of collapse, putting the lives of every single human within the city at risk!
