J-Novel Club has been steadily releasing volumes of light novels digitally for readers to enjoy, and now it looks like there will be a print option for some titles thanks to a collaboration with manga and novel publisher Seven Seas.
The first two titles to get a print copy will be Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash (volume 1 to release June 6th) and Occultic;Nine (volume 1 to release July 4th). No word yet on any other titles that will get the paperback treatment, but it sounds like more will be planned. All in all, I think this is a nice arrangement that J-Novel Club and Seven Seas have worked out. While I’m personally fine with digital, I know there were plenty of people who were really hoping to get a physical copy for some of these light novels.
In other news, Bookwalker has announced that J-Novel Club titles are now available to purchase digitally by volume from their online store. It’s always nice to have more options!
