  1. On one hand I’m ecstatic for GochiUsa, but on the other hand Sol Press. I really hope they sort themselves out, but they’ve had years at this point.

    1. I know. Lots of people feel the same. I was mildly encouraged seeing images of the palettes of printed novels finally arriving. I guess all we can do is wait and see.

    2. Will GochiUsa work as a novel though ? And I guess I’m thinking the same with Blend S, like I love CGDCT animes but I’ve never read a LN about it lol, the visuals, directing, music and voice acting help a lot in my enjoyment of those series so I’ll have to see how a LN works.

      1. Lol, no no. GochiUsa and Blend S are manga. Sol Press does publish manga too. While a little confusing that they’ve been shown on this light novel website, I definitely appreciate that everything was shown.

      2. Oh I’m an idiot lol yeah CGDCT couldn’t be a novel I should have known, I just didn’t check correctly on something I know the site also reports manga that have been licensed but I just didn’t see the word manga anywhere and I just assumed they were LNs lol thx for the clear up.

  2. “Let This Grieving Soul Retire! Woe is the Weakling Who Leads the Strongest Party”
    This one could be funny will depend on the writing and how much they abuse tropes and cliches and how likable the characters are.

    “The Game Master has Logged In to Another World”
    So did the players get sent into another world or into a vr game or what ? The synopsis is kinda confusing, welp either way this one seems like it could be some dumb fun or utter trash, depends on how well developed this world they get sent into is, the GM abilities give me a kinda bad vibe though is he gonna have godly powers ? Only overlord has made a good story with a super op mc so lets see how this turns out.

    “I Surrendered My Sword for a New Life as a Mage”
    This one could also be interesting, reincarnation but not the typical otaku loser but a master swordsman eh ? Either way the ay opsis makes it sound like it’s gonna be really aggrievating with the mc appearing like trash trying to focus on magic and when things turn dicey hell activate swordsman godmode and naturally those two girls have been saved thx to that or something, idk same with the other one, could turn out to be really good dumb fun or utter trash.
