Acquisitions Speculation - General
@thegrimlich yeah, you're right. It's too soon to announce even if they did get it.
@pcj While I really want that one, I don't see it realistically starting prepub before P4V4 since IIRC it was released after P4V4 in Japan, and any licenses start prepub the day of the announcement.
Actually there's evidence against that, specifically for the Bookworm Fanbook. It started prepub on the 5th of March as per the first post in volume thread, but was announced as licensed on the 23rd of February based on this post in the licensing request. Date may be off slightly due to timezones, but close enough.
I don't expect it to start yet myself, but if they plan to start it within a month or so, it's not impossible that they decided it shouldn't wait to their next batch of licenses.
So here are my last minute predictions:
Series 1: no idea
Series 3: Don't know, but given the hint maybe Heat the Pig Liver?
Series 4: hopefully either The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady or Fake Saint Of The Year
Stay tuned to find out if I was right or horribly wrong!
I posted what I think the solution to hint 1 is on discord, along with some absolutely mad speculation about what it means.
Okay, Sam's comments yesterday got me thinking. The implication to me was that we haven't actually gotten close to the essence of #1 yet. And that sent me down a Google hole that led to...Spaceballs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5drjr9PmTMA I feel like this has to be what it's invoking.
Mad speculation time: I can't think of any light novels with anything like "Spaceballs" in the title. If the context of the scene matters, which is they're watching a video of the completed film in order to re-enact it, that brings to mind the meme, the legend, Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon. If it's hinting at something like Spaceballs...Tenchi Muyo?
The time is nigh...
Some really great licenses revealed really looking forward to them.
Yeah one pretty high profile licence. And the others look interesting and definitely worth a try
Sometimes it's just as exciting to watch.
A transient parting.
Not actually an otome game!
Also, Faraway Paladin is a Print Release?!?!?! YESSSSS!!!!! I have wanted a print release for this series back when I first read it on my library's Overdrive app, back before I even knew what Jnovel was.
I had two simultaneous reactions to this announcement:
@lily-garden so I only got 1 of 4 right, which was about what I was expecting
I only guessed Endo but I'm pleasantly surprised to see Private Tutor to the Duke's Daughter which was also on my wishlist.
Zero Believers Goddess looks interesting so I hope I end up liking it as much as the last titles announced.
I’m so happy I’ve been waiting for the goddess with zero believers to be licensed forever
