A new license has recently been revealed for Yen Press: a light novel series titled Goblin Slayer!, along with its manga adaptation. Goblin Slayer! is written by Kumo Kagyu, and includes illustrations by Noboru Kannatuki. This piece of news appeared in an article on Publishers Weekly regarding the recent partnership between Hachette (which owns Yen Press) and Kadokawa. The article is an interesting one; I suggest giving it a read.
