Make a new topic for each series suggestion!

    Posting a suggestion that locked topics be knocked off the sub-forum into some other, that way more unlicensed stuff floats to the top. I typically sort by most votes cause it's interesting but at some point, Sam will have licensed everything on the first page creating a weird locked sub-forum.

    I am wondering, would it be ok to make a post about a type of LN we would like to see? Like if I want to see more Shojo titles or if I want to see pure MMO LN I make a post about that where the discussion stays on that one point. I think this type of thing can work as there are so many LN that JNC can get titles based of these type of posts but people may not have suggested them yet.



    • Campione Light Novel

    • Humans are the Strongest Race ~Starting a Slow Life with an Elf Wife in a Different World Light Novel

    • Tenchi Muyo! GXP Light Novels

    • Farming Life in Another World - Isekai Nonbiri Nouka Light Novel

    • The Testament of Sister New Devil



  • maybe a place where we can take polls to help decide what series everybody would want J-Novel to translate. It will give us a chance for us to hopefully have one of the novels we really wanted to get translated a chance. Plus it gives a chance to look a different types of light novels so we can try new light novels.

    @jjch102296 Each title nominated in the suggestions forum has a place to up-vote it in the lower right corner of the first message. Right next to "Reply Quote", the "^(number)" is how many votes it's gotten. Click the "^" to add your vote.

    What JNC is doing right now will give readers a chance to try new different light novels, a pure voting system would lead to the most “popular” light novels getting licensed and nothing that is truly niche, and small time.

    Many of the titles JNC has right now such as Der Werewolf, Elf-San, infinite Dendrogram, etc. would probably not have been licensed as early as they were if at all.



  • @someoldguy how many votes does it take for them to consider it? I was thinking about a couple of light novels I want J-Novel to pick up.

    • True Tenchi Muyo gxp

    • Isekai Nonbiri Nouka = Farming Life in Another World

    • Saikyou no Shuzoku ga Ningen datta Ken = Humans are the Strongest Race ~Starting a Slow Life with an Elf Wife in a Different World~

    • Campione

    Those are a few that i can think of off the top of my head

    There is no set “number of votes” that will make a title considerable for licensing, technically all titles that JNC has access to are “potential” licensing material. Wether the a title has a suggestion topic or not, whether a topic has 1 vote or 100 votes will only make a minor difference in whether it is licensed or not.

    Personally speaking I feel that the suggestion subform is just like an extra padding of reassurance after a license acquisition is already moving forward.

    I will repeat what I said in a different thread to you:
    @rahul-balaggan said in suggestion: Tenchi Muyo! GXP Light novels:

    @jjch102296
    there is probably little that individuals can do to persuade JNC to license any particular title.

    It all comes down to what they actually have access to license, and what the people in charge feel will be a profitable seller.

    It has been said before but these suggestion topics are just 1 small part of many things that go into deciding what JNC licenses.



  • @rahul-balaggan still it doesn't make it any less frustrating. I mean if they would notify someone saying a number of votes will get interested and would consider it more likely. Or they would tell us that the novel we want isn't able to be able to license by J-Novel. I am really sorry but I am the impatient type.



  • Lol maybe 1.5k upvotes would be a deal maker.

    They have licensed books that don't even have a suggestion topic, and they have licensed books that have a ton of votes. Nothing you do can guarantee anything from JNC's side, and they oftentimes can't discuss details on their dealings in order to maintain good relationships with LN companies.

    Frankly, they do tell us this stuff, just not necessarily on the forums. You can follow their Twitter or CuriousCat for these kinds of tidbits. Otherwise, just pay attention to the licensing discussions that have gone on.
