English licenses sorted by JP publisher
I already made a light novel counter for 3 companies worth of licensed series, and updating it is fun... BUT!
I wanted to see which publisher/label each license came from. So I went off to make a list, and here's the result.
If you have any thoughts to share, feel free. If I've made any errors, I'd love to correct them.
I mainly made this so I could have another list to update, and I decided to share it with everyone here.

EDIT: Decided I'm not adding any VIZ licenses. (probably)
@doublemangekyo One correction: Orphen is licensed from TO Books, not from the original publisher.
There’s also One Peace’s Shield Hero, and Book Walker’s 2 exclusives, but otherwise a very extensive and interesting list. Nice job, OP!
(Also would be interesting to see all of Tokyopop’s archaic licenses.)
Wow, this is great. Thanks for putting this together.
@sam-pinansky Thanks, Sam!
@legitpancake Yeah, I'll probably add OP and BW stuff later.
Don't know about Tokyopop though... This list isn't meant for series that aren't being currently published. Unless TP comes out with a new edition of their old licenses, I don't see myself adding them. Same reason SSE's Ballad of a Shinigami / Pita-Ten / Wicked City books aren't on the list.
Sweet. I've been working on something a bit similar but haven't had much time. Would you like access to the /r/LightNovels wiki page if you have a reddit account? A wiki is a bit more stable than a forum post. (Which is why I started working on it there.)
@aruseus493 This is just a personal little project for me to keep track of.
The only reason I even have a reddit account is because of that giveaway some time ago.
Thanks for the offer though.
Having trouble finding anything about Metamor Publishing. Got an official site or something?
Also, would you happen to know the original publisher for the Wicked City books in Japan?
@aruseus493 From what I could find, it seems Metamor went bankrupt (/filed for bankruptcy?) in 2017.
Their site's no longer up... I guess Seven Seas got the Perfect Blue deal before Metamor went under.
As for Wicked City:
Originally published by Tokuma Shoten. (label: Tokuma Novels, and later Tokuma Bunko)
The latest book in this Black Guard series was published in 2016 by Mainichi Shimbun (label: μNOVEL).
By the way, do you guys know if there's a comprehensive list of YP's "print-only" releases somewhere?
Dash X Bunko titles
Gagaga Bunko titles
Final Fantasy novels
That's all the Yen On stuff I can think of that lacks digital.

I wish Rokka Braves had a digital run. I guess that's Dash x Bunko. =(
I wish Pizza Elf had a digital release. Really not worth the €11.63 I paid for that book...

That too. =(
Did pizza elf feel like it should have had more volumes (not in terms of your enjoyment level that it should continue, but just in terms of completing a story?)?
Justus' impressions were kind of middling (3 out of 5 on Goodreads, and he said it wasn't one to feel too bad about not getting yet).
@terrence More volumes? Not really. There wasn't much of a story to begin with, and I think the book wrapped up nicely for what it is. Reading the afterword, I got this impression that a volume 2 wasn't even considered... but maybe that's just me. Or maybe it's a simple case of "If it hasn't gotten a follow-up more than a year later, it probably didn't do too well".
The characters, I felt, weren't written in a way that would suggest any future developments. The book being a collection of semi-connected short stories, it never gave enough time or focus to any one character for me to get attached to them. They were just there... So that's a minus.
My overall impression is that Pizza Elf is a decent quick read if you're just looking to kill some time and have nothing better to do. Like I did when I visited my grandparents over the weekend.
For me it was like a junk food that gives you this placebo effect that you're eating. Only you begin to realize halfway through that your belly is still pretty empty and you want more substance out of your meal. So by the time you're finished you wonder if it was worth it.

Cross Infinite World announced a new two volume series, a scifi novel called Beast + Blood. I can't find anything about it (my Google skills are fail). Is it a web novel only?
