I've always been more of an "in print" guy, so this is good news! Very Happy

Here's hoping this is successful I'm really happy to see Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash get a nice physical release as it was on J-Novel Club but I couldn't justify spending $120 for a collection of digital only releases. Hopefully Seven Seas has learned from their attempt at trying to release Ballad of a Shinigami working with J-Novel Club seems smart so I am cautiously optimistic about this that is as optimistic as I get.

This is great news. I've appreciate what J-Novel Club has been doing for light novels that may have just slipped through the cracks - or we just didn't know some of us wanted - and Seven Seas releasing print editions is an awesome continuation of that work.

I'm looking forward to adding both Grimgar and Occultic;Nine to my collections of physical light novel releases.

Definitely getting Grimgar. Was guessing they'd partner with Yen Press and Seven Seas is surprising but not really an issue or anything.

This is good news! Glad Grimgar's manga adaptation and original light novel will both be available in print in English. Now I hope Cross Infinite World, which focuses on translating obscure shojo light and web novels and releasing them digital-only, can make a similar deal with a print publisher.

I wish that Yen-press would take a page out of SevenSeas book. I'm still waiting for Complusive Gambler to be out in print.

Nice! I hope this sort of thing happens more often. The more light novels officially translated and published the better.

Ah, seems that Seven Seas will be taking more of my money. Definitely will be getting Grimgar.

Been reading My Little Sister Can Read Kanji via J-Novel for awhile now. Would pick up the physical books if they get released.

Well, this should satisfy some of the critics of J-Novel Club's original no-print plans (I don't think they were ever against it; just that they had to start small and that means eBooks only). I got a J-Novel Club subscription when they launched, hoping to help bootstrap them to the point where they're successful. So far My LIttle Sister Can Read Kanji is the one thing I've been into because it's such a daft satire, but I'm looking forward to seeing what else they're able to license.
