Short Story in How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord Vol. 13 on J-Novel?

    I noticed on Bookwalker that they are having a promotion that Volume 13 of How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord will come with an exclusive short story: https://global.bookwalker.jp/select/165/

    I really dislike Bookwalker due to its unbreakable DRM and (IMO) poor app. I would hate to see the short story locked behind Bookwalker's DRM. Is there any chance of the short story appearing in the Premium J-Novel ePub, despite the promotion labeling it as an exclusive?



  • Bookwalker has had this promotion before for this series. They got an exclusive short story on a previous demon lord volume as well, and JNC doesn't get it. I believe that it is actually commissioned by Bookwalker, so they are the ones with the rights to it. I doubt they would licence it to JNC when the idea is to get people to buy the book from them because of the short story rather than other sources.

    Arifureta v10 got an exclusive bonus story and illustration as well and J-Novel didn't get it in the premium edition, so I think Demon Lord's will be exclusive there as well. Bookwalker paid for it so it doesn't make sense for them to share it.

    That is a bit unfortunate then, though I can understand why if Bookwalker financed it. I was planning on buying the Arifureta series here on J-Novel and still do, but the bonus story in volume 10 is a bit annoying how it is exclusive as it isn't worth getting over J-Novels version (only 1 bonus story versus 6 on J-Novel).
