including not saying that negotiations failed, if they failed.
I highly doubt negotiations would ever fail. It might be tricky and hard but would not fail. Especially since JNC already licensed the first few books.
My basis for this is the fact that Sol Press was able to grab some good titles even though the company was failing and did not have a good track record. They were even able to release more than just 1 volume of a series.
It's doubtful they would fail in negotiations for additional volumes, but that doesn't mean it's impossible.
Thus, I include that since they don't report failed negotiations.
If we never hear of an additional volume in a series even though it had been released umpteen bazillion years ago in Japan, negotiations failed.
So far that hasn't happened.
But if the chappie is so out of the loop to ask when the next volume will be ready days after it is released in Japan, one is comprehensive in covering all the reasons they might not hear anything concerning a release date for some time, if ever.
Thank you for the heads up and what you said makes a ton of sense. It's unfortunate because I thought it was a great series. Nice character development compared to most titles out, character grind versus OPed from day one, enough fan service, and a nice balance between comedy and seriousness.
I hope the creator attempts to make a sequel one day.
@saffire We're kind of waiting to make a few other changes all at once to the app so it might be a little while but we'll definitely get to it (along with allowing purchases of coins etc IN the app).
Amazon just stopped allowing you to purchase within the Kindle app because they didn't want to give the app stores their cut.
I think JNC are in a pretty different situation to Amazon though. The app stores cut likely aren't much different to what Kobo, Bookwalker and Amazon themselves are taking for selling the books 3rd party. If they can bring more people over to buying direct by offering that additional payment method, that balances out.
gosh, if I didn't need a reason to buy premiums from J-Novel site before now...
I know not all 'missing' titles are JNC's but, I just don't see a compelling reason to buy from bezos when there is an alternative that is both cheaper and better. now we just need a wiki /article /FAQ on how to use calibre and sideload JNC premiums to Kindle hardware (or Ipad) for those folks that aren't already doing that...
... but can we place a limit on main characters who are dressed all in black? ...
And on characters named Aisha or any abbreviation of it. I start mixing them up. Is that the most beloved name of Japanese authors or what? (this is not just JNC titles, but across all English light novel releases. There are so many I get confused).
I read both parts of 4 of the new novels, they seem promising. Let's see where it goes from here :)
Had fun learning the strange sequence of inputs to enable developer mode on an Android device to figure this one out...
Not sure if this would help at all for ease of future css locating, but you could always open the forum in a normal desktop browser and use the mobile layout in the developer tools to simulate a mobile browser if you know what width and height you want to use.
