For part 2, around 30%:
If that were the case, then it would explain Lilith's particular fixation with Lilith among those three girls from Luicaon. - I suspect the first "Lilith" is supposed to be "Alshiera", based on context.
@liz It's the same case with the author's other light novel series, Cop Craft. He wrote six volumes and stopped around 2016, the same as Amagi Brilliant Park. I guess he's going through a bout of writer's block for both series.
This was the best volume of the series and as far as I got when reading the fan translation. So from now on I won't have that jarring "but it was different!" feeling when reading the official translation. :)
It's great to know that there are still lots of volumes to come.
Volume 10 (Premium Edition): 6 Bonus Short Stories & Textless Color Illustartions

Vandre-san's Secret Room
@smashman42 Yeah, that is odd. And I completely blew it on who was going to kick Gewalt's ass. Not that I'm not tickled pink over it.
Still, we have to wait until next volume to see what Shera is going to do (or not do).
the character pages, from the premium edition too, I think that should be Roana instead of Cristina.
I double check from my japanese (raw) book too I think that should be read as Roana Fountain instead of Christina.
also Cristina drill is not that magnificent too.
P8, the illustration at 29% seems to be about a page later than it should be; the action it depicts occurs back at 24%, before the explosion.
Forthorthe embraced freedom of press just like Japan did, but it wasn’t Nalfa’s goal wasn’t to test the limits of that.
Remove it wasn’t
Yurika had gladly accepted a part-time job that paid 200,000 yen a day,
Previously the amount was 20,000.
She had a big smaller on her face as she excitedly pumped her fist in the air.
Starting to read this guy. Part 1 read.
So we got no way home (unless Ryouma can get the help of a god from his world whose identity no one has been able to figure out).
We got a few factions controlling things (namely got the Organization of otherworlders that have some plan for control using Shardina that Ryouma could wreck or Ryouma could be brought into the fold to get behind). Sounds like there's some A++ rank hunters they're going to send out to get him soon.
This lady thaumaturgist he just visited going to become a regular character? Anna-Maria was her name I think?

Do you not ever use the catch-up month titles to read older volumes that are no longer available as pre-pubs? I've only been a JNC member for 14 months so that has been very valuable for trying out older series.
For pre-pubs, I can understand not wanting to read the parts as they are released, but it's also useful to read a new title once it's finished to see if you like it instead of buying blind. There have been several recent titles that looked promising. They weren't bad but were not my cup of tea, so I'm happy to have saved $6 on them.
I have never read any pre-pubs and have no interest in doing so. If a book looks interesting, I buy it, just like with any series which is published by someone other than JNC. And if the option were buying the books from Kobo vs paying for the subscription, the money saved by buying them from Kobo would easily outstrip the cost of occasionally picking up a book that turned out to be a dud. And I read enough that I rarely give up on series anyway. I can certainly understand someone using the subscription to see if a series is worth actually buying, but that doesn't make the subscription worth it given how much more it costs. At best, it would be a benefit worth taking advantage of if you're already paying for the subscription. Either way, I have no problem with someone else thinking that pre-pub is valuable to them. It's just of no value to me, so the fact that I have to pay for a subscription to buy the full versions of JNC's books is annoying. I may look into doing myskaros' suggested workaround to save some money, but from my point of view, JNC has made it unnecessarily annoying to buy books from them. Given JNC's pricing model, if the versions on Kobo were the same as the Premium editions, I would never buy from JNC directly.
Fair enough. I'm the opposite in that I wish other publishers had some kind of try-before-you-buy scheme like JNC. Kindle samples of LNs are sometimes so short that they only include some illustrations and the table of contents. Baen is the only major science fiction publisher I can think of that sometimes sets the price of volume 1 of a series to 0.00 to get you hooked.
With DRM'd ebooks if you don't like a title it's completely wasted money since you can't sell or donate the used book, and I only buy ebooks now for space reasons and to reduce consumption.
