Acquisitions Speculation - General

    Personally, I like several that were announced. 4 of the 5 shojo seem really interesting to me, especially White Cat's Revenge. I was really happy with Grace of the Gods. There were more that I am interested in. Since the announcement of Yen press for that one looked almost the same as J-Novel, it appeared like they might have been working together on their respective announcement. I assume Yen Press is releasing the manga since J-Novel is releasing the Light Novel.

    A lot of the announcements on Yen Press that I found didn't specify if it was manga or light novel.

    I also thought it was interesting to hear how many translators and editors J-Novel has working for them. They have really grown in the last three years. Sure they pick some novels I am not interest in, but in reality so long as they pick ones that are profitable then that means they can grow even more and possibly license more that I am interested in.

    @rahul-balaggan Thanks, I stand corrected on who licensed Grace of the Gods. I think it was Square Enix that didn't seem to say whether they licensed manga or lightnovels as well so sorry to Yen Press for saying that about them.
