Sevens | Seventh
Publisher: Shufunotomosha (Hero Bunko)
Novel: 7+ (ongoing)
Lyle Walt is a young noble boy and heir looking forward to the day he can inherit his family’s territory. Except around when he was 10 year old, his parents started neglecting him more and more in favour of his little sister, Celes.
On his fifteenth birthday, he is challenged to a duel by his sister to see who will inherit the household and horribly loses, being cast out of his family. Afterwards, he gets treated by the family groundskeepers and receives the family heirloom Gem from him that Lyle’s grandfather had entrusted to him. From there, he begins an aimless journey with his childhood friend and former fiancée, Novem, and the Gem-turned-Jewel that houses the memories, personalities, and Skills of seven of his ancestors.
I really like the idea of interacting with one's ancestors and it seems unique for a light novel. I also like that it's a pure fantasy and not an isekai or reincarnated protagonist. I haven't read it, but I've seen it talked about a lot and heard good things about it.
I have this one on my read list, I just haven't had the time to get to it yet (even thought it's fan-translated completely) lol
I remember seeing also a sequel for it, but nobody has started translating it yet if I recall right.
This one looks really interesting.

this one is already on my PTR list, so if it gets licensed, I would definitely pick it up over the WN.

i also suggested this one few months ago
i have read some of the Web Novel and i have heard that the Light Novel and Web Novel of this have a lot of differences. specifically in the chronological order of events or something like that. i hope the LN gets licensed by JNC
I have recently finished the WN fantrad, it was really good, but the ending wasn't as good as the rest of the serie, so i hope we get a licence for that one and may be a better ending for the LN version.
I noticed earlier that the Sevens (LN) appeared in my feed on NU. Looks like a group has started fan translating it. Does anyone know if the LN is different from the WN?
@terabyte I know at the very least there is an extra girl
