@durask The first volume just came out in Japan like 3 weeks ago, so it might take some time to negotiate. J-Novel's biggest obstacle is definitely the publisher, Shinchosha, which JNC may not have any ties or contacts with (Sam may, but I've never seen him talk openly about it). Explaining JNC's digital-only nature, with paperbacks reserved for only best sellers, is particularly a difficult selling point for JP publishers that have never made a deal with JNC before.
@melissa Yea, if you notice a typo in a prepub but the volume is already published, the editors would rather you didn't report it since it could have already been fixed in the final epub. If you own the ebook, though, and see a typo, they do encourage you to email them.
@antipathy what about the after stories from the web novels will they be apart of the series or will they keep it out
The publisher has said as long as Arifureta keeps selling ok/well they will keep publishing it. So there is a very good chance the after stories will get Volumes of there own once the main story is done.
Personally I hope they get put into LN form b/c I really want to read the 2 Lord Abyss arcs in LN format. Those arcs are already great and just thinking what could be added given all the extra stuff in the main story makes me giddy.
All titles are Premium editions unless otherwise noted.
