Something like this was brought up long ago
To summarize, those types of content are produced by the anime production committee and would require a whole separate license, and that license would have to be from a company that JNC has virtually no ties with, so more then likely it will not be happening.
I really don't see much of an issue with the titles mentioned, all have fairly recently had their latest volume released in Japan while j-club already has the previous volumes released...
...except two, Bakarina (7 volumes released in Japan but only 4 on j-club) and Siskan which has been completed for a while now back in Japan but here it's still missing that final volume.
But it's very much personal and not casting spells.
Altina is a five foot nothing girl who can wield a six foot block of iron like it's nothing, her brother has super speed, and so on. There seem to be inherent blessings in the royal line and possibly a few other people.
@pjthomas404 Oh, that one is a special case, just like Rokujouma. Both LNs are actually a "remaster" of the fan translations, so everything was kept in the same topic for those. I actually asked for a topic for each volume a while back too, but we're already caught up with both at this point, so no big deal. 😅
@sinnoaria Oh, I was just referring to the "list" part of the proposal. Similar to how you put an anime into your "Plan to Watch" list, you could put some novel into your "Plan to Read" list here. I think I didn't read the whole proposal carefully enough, so my apologies.
About this feature I mentioned, I supposed one could also keep track of his planned-to-read series through browser bookmarks, but there are some advantages to having it here (e.g. being warned when there's some promotion or related work to one of series you're planning to read).
I agree it isn't really important. It's just something I expected to have here because other sites I've seen have it too.
Those lists are interesting, so thanks for compiling them.
JNC could try to categorise novels into genres, although some though choices would need to be made. For example, lndb lists FMP under the following genres: Action, Comedy, Mecha, Romance, School Life, Science Fiction. Which of these would you categorise it under, or would it be listed under all of those genres?
What might be better is for the site to have quick links to the top 10-20 tags which correlate to popular genres and areas of interest and ensure each series is listed under at least one popular tag. Or people could have checkboxes next to each popular tag and it'd list all novels that have one or more chosen tag. Either way the principle is to make it easier for people to find what they are interested in without assuming that a novel is only in one genre.
@aruseus493 actually Release the witch is bookmarked in my qidan library haven't started it thou. Wuxia World has several titles in volumes/chapters but no physical releases thou they do sell some ebooks on amazon
@lixaxy ah yeah, the site does not provide notifications, but it provides RSS update for each series (or any combination of series). Grab an RSS reader for your phone, configure it to auto refresh regularly and notify you when there is a new item, that's the closest you can get.
Btw, the RSS link is at the end of the page.
I agree that as questions go it is quite frequently asked. Seems like if JNC wish to continue with this practice they should ensure that potential customers know they'll have to wait a day or so for premium.
I honestly don’t see that happening any time soon.
The quickest way to find out if a book has a pre-order out is to check amazon, check for the kindle department and sort by publication date, here is a link:
That way you can see the newest books to get ore-orders at the top.
@_08 well, ideally I want that with each update event I can compare it with a "watching list" and decide right away whether it matches or not; instead of comparing it to every title available to decide the exact title, and only then check if the title is in our "watching list". The complexity isn't affected much though (number of watching titles x number of event VS number of titles available x number of event).
