Sorry again for falling even further behind on everything for the site lately. Things have finally settled down somewhat in my life enough that I can find some time each day to work on the blog again. I managed to get some long-overdue LN/novel entries up the past few days, and now I’ll try to recap all the licenses we’ve gotten over the past couple months.
They just keep coming! And they just keep mostly being the same sort of fantasy/isekai stories.
- Cooking with Wild Game — by EDA (art by Kochimo) — lndb.info
- I Shall Survive Using Potions! — by FUNA (art by Sukima) — lndb.info
- Welcome to Japan, Ms. Elf! — by Makishima Suzuki (art by Yappen) — lndb.info
The first volumes are already up for J-Novel Club members. Look for the ebooks in the next week or two.
Also, J-Novel Club now has the manga adaptations for An Archdemon’s Dilemma, The Magic in This Other World is Too Far Behind!, I Shall Survive Using Potions!, and Master of Ragnarok, as well as a manga titled Animeta!.
J-Novel Club also announced physical copies for Infinite Dendrogram will begin releasing in September.
Also, print releases for JK Haru and Last & First Idol in July.
- Beast Blood — by Sato Fumino (art by Akira Egawa)
Volume 1 will release digitally on February 28th. I’m not sure what to think of this one yet, but it is something different from the norm here at least.
- Little Witch Academia: The Nonsensical Witch and the Country of Fairies — by Momo Tachibana (art by Eku Uekura)
- The Survived Alchemist With a Dream of Quiet Town Life! — by Usata Nonohara (art by ox)
These are planned to start releasing in July. I’m assuming Little Witch is a side-story one-shot for the anime series. It is interesting to see a novel from a children’s line getting brought over.
- Reincarnated as a Sword — by Yuu Tanaka (art by Ruroo)
This one will arrive physically and digitally on August 6th. But really, a sword? What next, a vending machine?
Also, Seven Seas will release paperbacks for Arifureta Zero starting in September.
- The War Ends the World / Raises the World — by Kei Sazane (art by Ao Nekonabe)
- Combatants Will Be Dispatched! — by Natsume Akatsuki (art by Kakao Lanthanum)
- The Genius Prince’s Guide To Raising a Nation Out of Debt (Hey, How About Treason?) — by Toru Toba (art by Fal Maro)
The Combatants series is by the author of Konosuba.
Also worth noting, there will be an art book released for Sword Oratoria (Danmachi), full of art by Kiyotaka Haimura.
That’s all for now, I think! Let me know if I missed something, and I’ll add it to this post.
In more general blogging news, I’m going to be spending the next couple weeks working on updating LN entries, as well as the preorder page and current releases page. If you’re curious what I’m reading at the moment… It’s Katanagatari. Finally started. Maybe I can get around to a review for that in the coming weeks.
