The Apothecary Diaries: Volume 1
I saw that you have startet translating this LN so I went to Amazon to preorder it. Then I noticed it that there is also manga. It is a bit confusting to discern which one was manga and which one was light novel. I suggest that you put on your release that it is light novel in order to avoid confusion.
Here is your page:
And here is manga page:
If you do not pay attention who is translator it is easy to mix it up.
JNC is only translating the LN. The manga is by Square Enix so they have no control over it.
I meant you should put on your title that it is light novel :)
Oh, sorry I misunderstood.
I mean they’re pretty easy to distinguish, since they have completely different covers, the manga has 4 names credited on the cover as opposed to the novel’s 2, the manga is in the manga category, whereas the LN is in novel fiction, and finally they have different publishers in the more info section.
Yea I agree it would be better to put (light novel) in the title of every series they post on Amazon, but for some reason they only do it for a few series. Now just look at Ideal Sponger Life, it’s completely unfindable due to it being filed in as a different version of the manga, with its paperback release and all its reviews attached.
Thank you for your feedback! This was an oversight on our part, and we have updated our Amazon listing to be more clear that we're publishing the light novel.
Hello, this probably the wrong place to ask it, bur there is any prevision to when the second volume of KnH will be out? I already bought the first volume in amazon, so I really want the second, please.
For a general overview of how J-Novel Club handles future volume releases for its licensed Light Novel titles please refer to the following topic:
Other then that I am sorry but I don’t know what title you are specifically referring to when you say KnH
Edit: I guess you were referring to the Japanese title for Apothecary Diaries which is, Kusuriya no Hitorigoto, as for that title, although the date is still tentative, the translator did post the following message:
Kevin-S said in The Apothecary Diaries Vol. 1 Discussion:
Good news! Provided there are no further hiccups (and we certainly hope there won't be), part 1 of volume 2 should launch this Friday, Feb 19th. The second volume is just a little bit longer than the first one, so it will run in 11 parts.
Once again, we can't thank you enough for your understanding and patience during this delay, and we really look forward to sharing volume 2 with you!
So the date for the finalized ebook release is a bit far off still, (will be released a few weeks after the final part is released on the site) but the volume will begin pre-publication on the site, hopefully soon.
