They said most of these will release early, but then some like the Sword Dad series would not get a physical copy until August this year which is quite a while for just 1 volume. Does anyone happen to know how long they generally take for digital releases..or if they even do digital
I don't know if it was officially confirmed before, but Sword Reincarnation is May digitally.

I decided to check out Psycome after listening to this podcast. I didn't watch the video since I didn't want too many spoilers but it always fun to hear what others have to say about light novels they enjoyed reading.
@crimson-wise said in Would you read the manga adaption of a Light Novel?:
or Haganai where, while the LN series has a certain infamous ending, the manga is going its own way, which may not be a bad thing.
I was unaware of that, I may have to give the manga a try. I loved the anime and wanted to continue the story, but when I looked into the light novel, all I saw was people fussing about the end of the story. I ended up breaking my own “don’t spoil it” rule and I hate the ending to Haganai.
I haven't read any of the story to know anything more than what I just read from the link above. However, it does "imply" that this is the end of the story. I say imply because the sentence isn't really clear whether it's referring to the overall story or the volume. I even tried looking it up the series on https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/うちの娘の為ならば、俺はもしかしたら魔王も倒せるかもしれない。#書籍 to confirm but the 8th volume isn't even listed there, and no info about the series ending.
I love having the bonus/side stories. Like @raitoiro I haven’t found the recent Grimgar to appealing, but the earlier ones from that series as well as almost any I’ve read from other series have been great.
@errantknight The issues you mentioned aside, the web novel that's out there is radically different than what was published in volume 2 and goes even further away from it. To say the author lost the plot may not be inaccurate.
@bloodygaikotsu said in Cross Infinite World Polls:
Seen the age poll and I just passed on it, Terrence revived it on my Twitter TL and I went ahead and ignored it again, and now, it's here, so I guess I gotta throw my two cents in.
(Third time is the charm, they say.)
Well, the reason why I didn't interact with the poll initially is I don't have a preference.
It's more about the story-MC dynamics.
I don't care if he's 8 year old who is narrating the most disturbing stuff in the most innocent way completely unawares he's painting horrors in the most colorful way. (some kinda of unreliable narrator.) or veteran who lived hundred of years retelling old stories of his youth.
So it's more like what kind of MC this 'idea' or 'story' needs.
There are stories that can't be told but by teens and early adults where they find themselves in the initial life crossroad (like Kokoro Connect, Monogatari, Seishun Buta, Remake our life-in a way-) or adults, especially middle-age men who may be struggling to accept the self they build and the choices they made up till now. (Mikkakan no Koufuku)
So it's always case-by-case thing for me without any bias or preference.
Makes sense. Part of why I prefer stories with older characters is that they are the exception in a market aimed at teens. I never have to hunt for a teen character, they've filled the shelves and are piled to the ceiling .
After 99 series with the High School Student Council fighting the Big Bad, a story like Black Heaven or Zone of the Enders is a breath of fresh air.
After 99 series that end at or before high school graduation, Clannad continuing on with work and early family life is also a nice exception.
I'm a fast reader and the vast majority of the LN I read are not in my native language
Even tho I am just the same, I have this huge disinterest in insert illustrations for some reason and more interest in text.
Bookwalker has a recommended new titles for you tab.
Here were my top results. A bit iffy since only 3 of these works I have an interest in (purple) and one I don't know about (yellow).
It should be noted that Bookwalker does also recommend titles on individual book pages based on what others read or what they think you may like.
