Looking at the titles they've released J Novel Club actually has more variety than I realized. But I admit I'm still a little concerned. The last couple titles they've licensed have been transported to another world fantasy titles. Don't get me wrong those can be perfectly enjoyable but I was already feeling burnt out on that genre before J Novel Club was a thing. I just hope in the future we get more variety in what they license.
2016 was pretty good for LNs.
Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon got past where the anime left off and the story just got better. Vol 6 might be the best in the series.
The latest arc in Accel World seems to never end, but it's been good. So long as I don't think of the game they're playing as software, but as magic.
J Novel club let me read a bunch of novels for a lot cheaper than I normally would've been able to. That was a godsend when I was traveling a lot last month and had multiple layovers and train rides.
I haven't gotten to Grimgar yet (plan on it), but I've enjoyed every series I've read from J Novel Club. Grimgar and My Little Sister Can Read Kanji got me to sign up, but The Faraway Paladin is the one that's really impressed me. It reads like a cross between an LN and a western fantasy novel. I'm curious where it's going to go.
Also, the Mixed Bathing in an Alternate Dimension surprised me. I was expecting stupid wish fulfillment in another dimension but got the beginnings of a hero.
@FMj7411 Unfortunately, since Grimgar is now licensed any other groups that were translating have stopped. Which was around Chapter 7 of Volume 4. So, we all just have to wait around 4 - 6 months until we can get to volume 4.
@Sean-McCann Thank you again :3
Nice, was not sure about that.
I should note, when you're signing back up with the same account, you don't get an additional credit. That's to prevent abuse.
Basically, we don't want people trying to game the system to get double the credits by cancelling and resubscribing each month.
Oh, it definitely makes sense why it works like that u.u
This forum comes with a reputation system which I have kept, but only upvoting (no down voting).
Originally it had some settings which limit people's posting speed based off their reputation, i.e. you need a certain number of points before you can post more than once a minute, etc, but I'm pretty sure I've disabled that, too.
These functions might come in handy once the forum gets bigger and harder to manage, but for now it's mostly cosmetic.
@Sam-Pinansky always nice to have contest for rewards! Builds the community. Could be a fan fiction/art contest, or a typo King contest!
I'm quite a big collector on figures, but lately been holding back due to spending too much this holiday lol
@Bryan Same. I only got as far as Volume 4 Chapter 7 before Grimgar got licensed. So a little bummed that it looks like I'll have to wait 6 months until volume 4 is released here. Well if you do go there I go by Nameless Wikia contributer, so feel free to say hi.
