"Visual novel"? Was "light novel" meant? As far as I know, the Dengeki Bunko imprint publishes light novels--not visual novels. Although maybe there is a Spice and Wolf game coming out?

Sure hope that Yen Press speeds up their releases, because the current speed is ridiculously slow. The US releases will be released in a slower pace than new ones are written.

There is a kind of visual novel for DS, Ōkami to Kōshinryō Boku to Horo no Ichinen. Since I have not heard of a new game or that Dengeki Bunko is publishing visual novels, we can be pretty sure this a mistake.

IIRC, Funimation ordered a C & D on Spice and Wolf fansubbing. While that's not confirmation that it will be licensed, it's certainly a strong suggestion it might be possible.

The Dengeki Bunko imprint uses the term "visual novel" differently from other publishers. It uses "visual novels" for regular text novels and not computer or game software. For example, Dengeki Bunko published a Ballad of a Shinigami visual novel book with a CD and a Kino's Journey visual novel book with a DVD.

That means nothing. Funi ordered C&D for Seto No Hanayome a long time ago. And nothing. Bring on the fansubs.

They did it at the request of Kadokawa, I believe. If FUNi wants to license it and make money, sitting on it isn't the way to go, especially now that BD releases are coming out.

That Ōkami to Kōshinryō Boku to Horo no Ichinen release is a romance and economics simulation game for the DS, but it's not called a visual novel in Japanese like the upcoming novel is.

Does anyone know the release for the US version of Spice and Wolf for the light novel(I think that's what Yen Press is publishing) or for that matter Haruhi? There isn't a good website that lists release dates for this type of stuff(or atleast what I'm aware of).

Thanks a ton, it's just for Haruhi I haven't seen anything so I was wondering if it got delayed and for Spice I had no clue.
