@rahul-balaggan still it doesn't make it any less frustrating. I mean if they would notify someone saying a number of votes will get interested and would consider it more likely. Or they would tell us that the novel we want isn't able to be able to license by J-Novel. I am really sorry but I am the impatient type.
They have licensed books that don't even have a suggestion topic, and they have licensed books that have a ton of votes. Nothing you do can guarantee anything from JNC's side, and they oftentimes can't discuss details on their dealings in order to maintain good relationships with LN companies.
novel we want isn't able to be able to license by J-Novel
Frankly, they do tell us this stuff, just not necessarily on the forums. You can follow their Twitter or CuriousCat for these kinds of tidbits. Otherwise, just pay attention to the licensing discussions that have gone on.

Author got very angry after finding out the webnovel was being fantranslated into English. They were very protective of their IP and disliked the fantranslation since "they had no way to verify the translation's accuracy or interpretation as they intended it to be ".
Just a further note on this, the same group that was doing the webnovel translation restarted the whole thing by starting to translate the light novel from scratch...
I wonder if a licensed official translation of this series would assuage the author's fears while allowing a greater audience to appreciate his work.
Regardless of the drama and tantrums, I too would love to have this licensed.
That's very daring of the fantranslators; considering the author also threatened via WN account they'd make Overlap bring legal charges against anyone who dares fantranslate the light novels without permission.
I haven't read any of this yet, but I am in full agreeance that JNovel needs a lot more yuri. Jnovel picks up a lot of series that seem to always be missed by other localizers, but they haven't been picking up the rare gems of the yuri genre. The premise sounds amazing, and definitely seems like it will be a fun read once I finish 9999.
And I really want things to spend my credits on outside Otherside Picnic.
Kinda hoping Seven Seas grabs this. And don't worry, I never get too high on these kinds of wishes / hopes, and I'm usually pretty happy with what gets licensed these days overall, but it still would be nice to see this one.
