  • When Occultic;Nine and Grimgar get physical releases, will those versions include the Premium stuff?



  • Awesome, there's a consolidated list now. set thread to watching


  • Premium Member

    Really nice. I have been thinking for a while that we needed a way to know the bonus content of the premium E-books.
    Was even thinking, in making a suggestion for that. So this came in a great time :smile:


  • Translators



  • The bonuses for Realist Hero sound really great! By 'in store exclusive' does this refer to titles directly bought here only or other platforms (Kindle, iBooks, nook, etc) too?


  • Premium Member

    @Student-no.0 I think it means that originally in Japan these extras were exclusive to certain retailers.

    Of course, we only get them from the Premium Editions offered by J-Novel Club.



  • It doesn't really make sense for the physical editions to have those bonus contents unless they were directly released by JNovel. Since wouldn't that mean even ebook release on Amazon would have them too? Just my thoughts on it. Of course if it does have it that would be cool too.


  • Translators

    @Terrence That's right.

    They're things like exclusives that were packed in if you bought the book from animate or gamers or one of the other major otaku retailers.
    Sometimes they came on a special little book or a special dust jacket, things like that. The bonus illustrations were usually printed on a postcard, etc.

    Very similar to the kinds of things you'd see for special editions of DVDs/Blurays. There would be a limited amount made and if you wanted them all you'd have to buy like 5 copies, one from each store.


  • Premium Member

    @Sam-Pinansky Similar to "Exclusive in Store DLC with your pre-order" from video game retailers too. Those dang exclusive horse armor costumes, I need them all. :horse: :shield:



  • @Sam-Pinansky said in Premium E-Book Bonus Contents List!:

    @Terrence There would be a limited amount made and if you wanted them all you'd have to buy like 5 copies, one from each store.

    Looks over at my 5 copies of volume 4 of Arifureta.

    I regret nothing.



  • @Terrence @Sam-Pinansky That's seriously awesome. Thanks a bunch! :)



  • Please make Arifuerta bonus illustrations! Could really use some good fan service ones for this one... Because the artist does "those" kind of works anyway! And his art is really good :D



  • Anything special for I Saved Too Many Girls and Caused the Apocalypse volume 2 not listed?


  • Translators

    @Aruseus493 Nope, just a hand-made glossary.

    If you look at sort of which books get which kind of stuff, the older the book the less likely there will be anything, and Little Apocalypse is from 2011...

    Heck we don't even have the full cover data (just the illustration and we recreated the background and logo).



  • What is Arifureta's bonus content?



  • @Bryan If I remember correctly, there's a special illustration of Yue in volume 1. Don't remember when they started including short stories. Either from volume 2 or 3 is my bet.


  • Translators

    @Aruseus493 Yes, we have the Yue "alternate cover" version.


  • Premium Member

    @Sam-Pinansky Curious about Bluesteel bonus content.



  • This post could use some updating. Otherwise, what's the bonus for BlueSteel Blasphemer volume 1?
