Sevens | Seventh
Publisher: Shufunotomosha (Hero Bunko)
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.
