    @Skanner I think it would be amazing if they picked up "Knight's and Magic"


  • Premium Member

    I would like to see Kou 1 Desu ga Isekai de Joushu Hajimemashita
    It's about 2 guys being summoned into another world where they are meant to somehow revive the spirit's light for the town they are summoned to.
    The spirits light is revived and brightened by good things while dimmed by bad.
    The MC is someone who was always interested in ruling, and there's harem too :P



  • I second "Kou 1 Desu ga Isekai de Joushu Hajimemashita", just've read the manga, and the LN is even from Hobby Japan.

    Here's a list from Goodreads of novels / manga / light novels people want on Goodreads. If I can, I'll see if I can piece together their top ten wished for LNs later.
    https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/42098.USA_Release_Wishlist

    I saw mentions of Sound Euphorium. I believe Yen-On picked that up.

    My personal Wishlist:

    Sakurako-San's Investigation
    Subete Ga no F series
    Shiki
    Shinsekai No Yuri / From the New World (the novels go a different path from the show I believe)

    Edit: Anyone mention Danganronpa Zero yet? I assume some other pub would control the rights for the series releases, but who knows [figure Fate / Zero would be in a similar predicament].

    are you guys working only with Hobby Japans light novels ?
    i would like to recommend Seirei Gensouki - Konna Sekai de Deaeta Kimi ni from this publisher.



  • My personal top requests would include (in no particular order):-

    Madan no Ou to Vanadisu
    Oda Nobuna no Yabo
    Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuhoku o Ketsui Shimashita
    Outbreak Company: Moeru Shinryakusha
    Kusen Madoshi Kohosei no Kyoukan
    Seirei Tsukai no Bureidansu
    Absolute Duo
    Seiken Tsukai no Warudo Bureiku
    Hagure Yuusha no Esutetika
    Maoyu Maou Yuusha
    Kokaku no Regiosu

    Yeah, I know I'm greedy, but I'd definitely pick up any and all of them if they were ever translated.

    I started listening to the podcast here with J-Novel's Sam I believe.

    https://baguburagu.wordpress.com/2016/11/30/third-seat-by-the-window-episode-1x03-we-talked-about-light-novels-so-we-chose-an-obnoxiously-long-episode-title/

    He talks about what they can publish when they talk about Tatami Galaxy novels. Novels aren't out of the question, but they are out for the moment (something about rights and those needing full print runs, which is too expensive for the site). So yeah, I'll keep my expectations in check for now for novel novels, and think more about LNs that'd be cool.

    On a side note, is "When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace"'s Light Novel equivalent picked up by anyone? I wouldn't mind reading those.

    @Terrence Almost done listening to this. Seems like a good chuck of the stuff made before 2010 is off the tables because the publishers don't keep their copies of all the assets? That sucks, reminds me of 1960s BBC, who recorded over tapes to save money, not knowing there would be a value for rebroadcasting, streaming, etc. in the future. Because of this, they are now remaking a famous part of Doctor Who animated because they discovered the sound and some other pieces of the puzzle but no video.



  • Is there any chance of J-Novel picking up these two titles?

    Thank you!



  • I would like to see the following light novels translated:
    Seiken Tsukai no World Break
    Densetsu no Yusha no Densetsu
    Campione!
    Hagure Yuusha no Aesthetica
    Madan no Ou to Vanadis

    I found your next LN J-Novel Club:

    "I Reincarnated into a Vending Machine"

    Like... what?! :confused:

    That's almost as bad as a Hollywood movie about someone reincarnating into a Snowman... wait...



  • Just remembered, another series I'd be interested in purchasing is 'Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru So Desu yo?', along with its sequel series 'Last Embryo'.



  • Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou seems like a good fit for J-Novel Club. It's published by Overlap, I believe.



  • Personally, I would love to see Full Metal Panic! get picked up - especially since there's a new season coming out soon.



  • Hope to see Steins;Gate 0 be aired

    @Kotaro-Agata said in Novel pick-up requests:

    Hope to see Steins;Gate 0 be aired

    ...what does that have to do with light novels?

    Though I certainly wouldn't mind getting a translation of the Epigraph Trilogy, which is more or less one of the routes of Steins;Gate 0.

    Soooo...About that Shakugan no Shana...

    -Patiently is hopeful-

    Viz Media started that series too soon. Though the anime, manga and light novels all finished in Japan. I think if it came out now sales would have been different. Thanks to you all at J-Novel Club, as well as Yen Press and One Peace Books, it seems that Light Novels are becoming more main stream in Western Countries and I'm grateful for that.

    I'm here because I really want to show support for light novels and this community.

    The funny thing about all of this is that I wasn't really a reader until my first light novel. Not since the age of Goose Bumps anyway lol.

    But yeah. I really hope Shakugan no Shana gets picked up. By someone anyone. The light novels were a bit in Japan even before Sword Art Online came out. It's a shame to see it rot away with a mere two volume release by Viz.

    Was checking Overlap titles earlier and I forgot The God Slaying Hero and the Seven Covenants was by them, I have been really enjoying that one.
    Another one was Antique of the Galactic War Chronicle which I have been meaning to check out, I'm not sure if it's only 2 volumes long or got dropped or what though.


  • Premium Member

    I'm curious can you get licenses for Dengeki Bunko novels?

    Would love to see the following one translated , it's also only 3 volumes.

    Danshi Koukousei de Urekko Light Novel Sakka wo Shiteiru keredo, Toshishita no Classmate de Seiyuu no Onnanoko ni Kubi wo Shimerareteiru.

    I'd be a fan of a few 1-3 volume series getting translated. We had Brave Chronicles and Occultic but I don't think you've had any since. I like a variety of series length
