@mokonaw The problem with so many Isekai is that unless they have interesting twists to it, it becomes generic.
Some of them feel like lazy ways to make a light novel even.
As someone who is following 7 series of Isekai, I'm starting to have the kind of burn that a new Isekai has to have a very very interesting twist for me to even give it a chance.
No Game No Life
The Saga of Tanya the Evil
The devil is a part-timer
You can see the current ones I'm reading have little in common (Yes, I know some of them are not even J-Novel). You could even discuss that one has little Isekai-ish feeling like The Saga of Tanya, which is just used in the introduction, and it becomes kinda irrelevant after it.
I understand that it sells, and that it's a charity. I'm just voicing my opinion. People like us can only hope that the trend will die soon enough and that originality will come back until the next trend becomes over-used again.
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.
go to the main J-Novel Club site
Go to the account section
Go to membership status
On the right side of the page you will see a grey box saying "premium status", and in that box it will say how many credits you have.
"Things like a less unwieldy parts selector (tried scrolling through all the Rokujouma parts? Yay)"
My only suggestion is don't break whatever you're doing with the code of the text or whatever for the prepubs. External text to speech extensions working on the web page are a god send for me.
