I bought the first four volumes of Realist Hero on Bookwalker, and was content with what I had because I didn't know any better. But then the free membership trial came along last month and I finally understood how JNC works.
It just clicked that the JNC prepub model is how I want to consume JNC content. Keeping up with story parts is just like keeping up with weekly manga anyway. As for non-JNC titles, I can still settle with Bookwalker, I guess.
I'll probably re-buy Realist Hero though.
I kept advertising J Novel on the mangas that have their LN translated and ran across spookie which lead to him learning about the premium bonus.
Hopefully he decides to continue the series he loves since the bonuses aren't required to enjoy the stories to the fullest.
I spend hundreds on auctions every other month trying to get limited edition things in Japan and it's a pain but what can you do when you love your hobby so much?
@swhp well there is obviously a difference between quoting something for a research project since you would also need to cite but if there is more after the quotation then you have a comma. Also, most books have the descriptor mid-sentence if it is a long one or a paragraph.
As the previous guy said, part 1 is a "preview" of the novel as a whole. As the final epub version of a volume is released, the prepubs eventually expire and are not available for reading anymore, with only part 1 being available to "preview" the novel.
@Paul-Nebeling I don't know about other series, but some volumes of Faraway Paladin have Q & As from J-novel subscribers at the end of premium editions. There might be other ones that I don't work on that have also done this.
So yes, it's been considered, and yes, it's been done. :)
its fine to download now, it seems my issue might have been trying to download it while on phone during work (in an area with s**** reception), also works fine if u DL it on pc then transfer onto your preferred platform.
@nevitash That's some functionality we don't really have at the moment (we've been putting the ebook releases on our general release calendar now, however that includes all the prepub releases too and isn't easily searchable).
In the meantime I suggest a workaround by going to amazon, searching for "J-novel club", and then ordering the results by release date.
