Print Editions of Grimgar and Occultic;Nine from Seven Seas!



  • @Bryan Thanks for the suggestion.

    I went to 3rd party site cause I think it's slightly cheaper despite other benefits premium membership offers. I don't have a lot of time I can spare to read so I decided to go with cheaper and specific purchase. And I'm already bought the first volume there and I'm the type that prefer 1 stuff / thing to be as identical as possible - in this case where I buy the ebook. I'll consider it when there is another title I want to collect in the future. =)

    @Paulo27 I see. Hopefully it will be there eventually / asap!



  • Seven seas is being very aggressive with their release schedule on these.

    They already have Grimgar Vol. 4 up for pre-order with a tenitive release date for December 12, 2107.

    Puts Yen On! to shame.



  • @ky0n_77 if you use calibre the program you can change the format of the epub files to any other file making them seem identical. Of course if it's the stores library you care more about I understand. But if you simply want the same format calibre can do that for you.

    Remember that a lot of the process is already effectively done for them. They don't have to secure the licenses, or go through the translation process, or approval for the translation/cover etc. Probably don't have to go through editing either. It really isn't a fair comparison.



  • @kuuderes_shadow yeah I was pretty much just mentioning it here so people who don't surf amazon all day can also go pre-order, that way there are higher pre-order numbers.

    I need to ask: considering this deal, would it be possible for J-Novel to pick up some of the light novels to manga series that Seven Seas has? For example: Seven Seas has the Mushoku Tensei manga, but it doesn't look like they plan to translate the light novel. I might be asking for much, but I'd still like to know if it's a possibility.



  • @TUSF Funny enough that was a question I asked during their AMA

    @Rahul-Balaggan You know what? I SAW that question and answer, and yet, it somehow escaped me entirely. Thanks for reminding me!



  • Now I'm worried Grimgar Vol.2 will not be available via Kobo. =(


  • Translators

    @ky0n_77 It's on my list of things to do today :)



  • just saw the Seven Seas edition on amazon but I've noticed it's lists 280 pages while the digital version is 192 pages... almost 100 pages difference? what gives? which one of them should I buy? I prefer digital but a gap like that make me reconsider in this case

    @ארז-אבני Most of e-books don't have fixed page formatting: you can read it with huge font on a small screen and get thousands of pages or you can put it on a 4K display with tiny font and get only a dozen of pages. What amazon shows as page count is some estimation for some kind of typical page layout so you can compare length of different digital books. Printed books have some different page layout so they have a different page count.
    Seven Seas print version should have the same exact content except for premium e-books (bought here, not on amazon, kobo, etc) having some bonus illustrations and some different metadata (about, copyright, summary). Print version might also have an extra proofread/edit pass, maybe someone with a print edition can comment on that.

    @_08 We got a copy of the manuscript from Seven Seas and they fixed a typo or two and maybe edited a couple of paragraphs a little.

    And they changed all the ... to …

    Other than that identical. I'd be a stretch to say the print was a superior version than the ebook (Aside from it being a physical book).
