That's for the JP release, correct? How much longer until there's an English release.
I couldn't say. But you can look at the dates on the series page and compare them to the JP dates above to make a guess.
And (I know you can't talk a lot about licenses directly but) can you at least confirm that v7 was included or if J-Novel will have to negotiate for v7 when it's available?
So, just in case you're misunderstanding something, I myself am not employed by JNC and cannot speak for them. I'm just a fan like you.
To answer your question though, the license for vol.7 will have to be negotiated (with little effort I'm assuming), since it's a brand new book that didn't exist until now. And that will only happen AFTER the book gets published in Japan later this month.
@endoftheline There is a direct line of causality from the Bookworm anime to my being here, so I don't doubt the influence of anime on sales.
I just thought of another useful subset: the most recent tranche of new series. As these all started at the same time on JNC, they should be fairly equal on recency bias, so it should be a pretty fair comparison.
And I think these are the previous tranche of new titles

I'd like to point out that compiling this data is also a service to any time-travelling JNC license acquisition editors. You're welcome.

Although Eizo has a few up on Mike, Joel, and Jonah, in that he (1) doesn't have to deal with a member of the Forrester Family and (2) isn't stuck watching bad movies. Although they do have him beat for number of companions who are wisecracking robots.
Still going through all the new licenses, but from the ones that interested me enough to start reading that I've gotten to so far Land Mines seems interesting, but I'll need to see where this one is headed before I commit to it fully. Fantasy Inbound has some potential, but it's not catching my interest enough to do more than keep tabs on the pre-pubs so far. Magic Knight doesn't appear to be the type of story I'm interested in after reading the first two parts, so I'll probably pass on it.
Still have to try Quiet Blacksmith, but I've seen the manga, and I'm not sure it's going to pull my interest enough to keep going, I guess I'll find out once I get to the reading part.
Supernatural Battles I plan to read simply because I liked the anime and I'm interested in seeing where the story goes after where the anime left off.
@ephidiel yup you can order via Bezos- or BN or wherever (or ask your local indie bookseller to get for you)
I'm in favor of the latter - support small/local biz and all that
side note -I just realized that the algorithm (?) at Bezos and co. tags Slayers as a children's book - I wonder if that mis-categorization has anything to do with the censorship some LNs have been getting - in general these are not 'chapter books' for 8-12 year-olds
