    I think I'll rec that new novel by the Welcome To The NHK author, "Light-Novel" (cheeky title). Haven't read much about it of course, just the author pedigree and that it releases in November. Yoshitoshi Abe (Serial Experiments Lain) did the cover.

    Ended up going with:

    Manga:

    Gal Gohan
    The Legendary Mother

    Light Novel:

    The Magical Power of the Saint is All Around

    Debating this final one. Thinking of going with "Twin Knights in the City of Love"
    https://bookwalker.jp/de79d17639-420e-478f-b1a4-769c82425579/?acode=WpfPW3yk

    If I want to be boring, I'll go with Sakurako-san again.

    Light-Novel I'll save for when it is actually out I think.



  • @terrence

    Gal Gohan

    that one is so enjoyable, love it


  • Member

    I've voted for Gal Gohan a few times. I'm glad other people are as well! They probably wouldn't even need to put it in Ghost Ship since it's only slightly ecchi. Not on Yuuna & Hot Springs level.

    Oh volume 5 just came out.. maybe I'll just get the Japanese print versions when I have the money..

    Seven Seas is hiring LN translators for a fantasy series.

    Maybe Skeleton Knight? 🤔



  • @terabyte If they are looking for a translator for a series that they already officially announced then we are all doomed.

    We will be skeleton knights by the time V1 comes out.


  • Premium Member

    @rahul-balaggan Well, SK V1 is scheduled for June 2019 if I recall right, so there's plenty of time. Always possible that their current translator had to drop the project because of issues. Or it might just be another series completely that they have yet to announce.

    Seven Seas will be announcing a new light novel license Friday (if certain requirements are met on their Facebook social media page).

    As an aside, the October Survey is still showing as up. =/



  • @terrence i would appreciate light novel for Ghost Ship imprint :D


  • Premium Member

    Wouldn't mind that...

    Though someone bumped the Bunny Gal topic and now I'm hoping it's that. Either way though, we'd still be waiting into mid 2019 for it probably... Better to strike while the anime is hot if they can (I suppose they could release early digitally, like with Abilities Average).


  • Premium Member

    It was Restaurant to Another World that got announced. Definitely a nice surprise. =)



  • @terrence They said they are preparing a very special survey for November/December that is why they are taking so much time


  • Premium Member

    New survey up. You can submit 18 licenses. They're broken down into category apparently. Going to give it a look.

    My votes are in.. I'll put them below in text form if I can. No Yaoi votes since I don't know any (I should've voted for that "My Best Friend Has a Harem in a Fantasy World").

    Manga:
    Abyss
    How to train your Devil
    Cheerful Amnesia
    This Art Club Has a Problem
    Legend of Mother
    Survival Game Club
    Slayers (?)

    Light Novel:
    ZoaHunter
    Sakurako-san (Beautiful Bones)
    Legend of Arslan
    Sōkyū no Karuma (Date a Live author)
    Remake Our Life! (Time-Travel back to college novel)
    Gothic Lolita Ping-Pong
    Attacking the Dungeon With My Beautiful Boss is OT Work?
    Light-Novel (Tatsuhiko Takimoto's new work)

    ...and a few others I'm already forgetting. xC

    Edit: They say it's generally best to format these with Romajii titles. So, if you're submitting, maybe do that.

    Here's my picks.

    Yuri LN – none, cause I don't read any
    Yaoi manga – none, cause I don't read any

    @doublemangekyo said in Seven Seas - October 2018 survey available!:

    Classic manga – none

    I made something up for Classic manga. I think Slayers (does that have a manga, and is it already releasing stateside?). I was trying to remember Orphen's name, but drew a blank, and didn't feel like searching (and again, no clue if that has released stateside).

    Oh god, I should have voted for those Gargantia stories. I've voted for them before though, so hopefully that makes two votes if they're keeping track of old votes too.

    Seven Seas has licensed what looks to be a manga adaptation of the first novel.

    I will not give up hope! One day, some company will (hopefully) translate the two sequel novels.
