Starting off 2020 with 2 months of catchups!


  • Staff

    Happy 2020! Now that the holidays over and everyone is back in the office, we've got new catchups for members that last until the end of January and on through February!

    A couple series have been on hiatus for a while, and now you can refresh your memory in order to follow along with the newest volumes that have restarted prepublication! Stay a while and listen to Rentt overcome his strange fate as a walking dead in The Unwanted Undead Adventurer. For a more lighthearted romp, travel back and forth between a world of fantasy and modern Japan with Kazuhiho and Mariabelle in Welcome to Japan, Ms. Elf!

    These next two series are both complete and hail from the earlier J-Novel Club days! First, Bluesteel Blasphemer follows a gun fanatic who is reincarnated into a living weapon and uses his substantial powers to create firearms in his new world. Then, in My Big Sister Lives in a Fantasy World, a high schooler finds out that fantasy exists in reality when gets involved in the supernatural world... something his overenthusiastic sister welcomes with glee!

    Finally, two more popular series will be available in full: the comedic fantasy Lazy Dungeon Master, where a man who only wants to sleep ends up having to do all the work to protect his dungeon; and a story of revenge and adventure with a romance that crosses worlds in Seirei Gensouki!

    January recap

    @myskaros Is there an official date for the next catch ups, they always seem like random dates or are you guys using this 2 months to cement the date come march or something?


  • Staff

    @darkapostle It's as you surmised, we decided to do 2 months this time because catchups weren't decided until January 14, so we wanted to give people at least a month for the current ones and to make sure we can start staying on schedule moving forward. March catchups (and actually April and May too) have already been decided, so you can expect them to change on March 2 US time (since we don't usually work on weekends).

    @myskaros That is awesome! I can't tell you how many times I've decided not to pick up a series on the monthly catch up list because I wasn't sure how long I had left and didn't want to get cut off mid way, only for the next months catch up to not turn up for ages.

    Just a reminder that catchups will be changing on Monday, so make sure you finish catching up with the Jan/Feb series ^_^
