@eternal-wanderer They're using outsourcing agencies which aren't known for quality releases (they struggle to even pay their translators a fair wage) and it's specifically Digital Only with no DRM-Free option.
They shifted to a different platform, one I didn't recognize so didn't clue in when scanning the Coogle Search results.
I did track down a review on Syosetu, and the link to the actual work reported it had been removed by the author, but I hadn't spotted it being relocated elsewhere since Kakuyomu hadn't gotten into my mind as a similar site.
The wonders of doing research where not only do you not read the language, but the character set differs drastically from that of your native language.
The ability to copy text and paste it into search engines helps a lot, but only goes so far when it comes to recognizing the results of the search as being relevant...

Tsukumodo Antique Shop's first few volumes was a novel I read alongside Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria, back when I still new to light novels.
So, imagine this scenario: there's someone new to light novels, and those two novels were the very first ones he read. At the time (and to this point), he likes one as much as the other. Years later, I still have difficulty finding novels that can rival the writings of those novels. From the top of my head, I can only name probably novels like Biblia Koshodou or works by Sugaru Miaki that can rival them.
Now of course, as a random anonymous person, my opinions hold little to no importance. But I do hope my point comes across, point beingTsukumodo Kottouten is an excellent novel.
It's an old forum, but I want to still talk about this since I recently came across it on Facebook post. The manga ended on a bittersweet note, to no surprise as it's a promotional for the light novel. It's a really good series, so I do hope it gets licensed. Frankly, if the manga is anything to base on, it's that the light novel is filled with fun interactions and witty dialogues, something only few light novels possess. One of the more famous works of the author is Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne! or OniAi, and I would compare the two, I'd say MonRabu is a far better work.
Well, I said my thoughts, and if this, and I pray, ever gets picked up, I would become a member in a heartbeat.
My topic was locked xd
But damn tgat is 3 years. I really hope it will be licensed. I even could pay 50 pound for 1 volume each XD
I really want it to read the story. But damn 3 years is a lot 🥲 you never know. Could happen
Looking at this, I realize I was reading either the scanlation or fan TL at one time, and enjoyed it.
Glad for the head's-up in re the anime...and wouldn't mind an official TL of the source materials at all!
I would also very like "Usotsuki" to be published, foremost because the character's dialogues are intersting and the protagonist's lies, to the reader and other characters, are, at least for me, both entertaining and unique.
