Amazon has Record of Lodoss War: The Grey Witch (Gold Edition) for $16.37 pre-order price right now so you save: $11.62 (42%) and are guarantied that price if you pre-order now. Also glad to hear Re:Zero Ex: The Dream of the Lion King is good if depressing Nagatsuki has a knack for ripping out the audience's heart and stomping on it but at least it feels earned or legitimate.

I have no problem with the one reviewer per book. It does make sense. However it would be helpful if you identify each reviewer with the review. Knowing the reviewer gives a lot of context to the opinion stated.

For those already familiar with the novels, no spoilers please! Especially in regards to the above spider. Very Happy

Thanks Bookwalker for sponsoring this! I've always wanted a light novel guide on here as it's fairly difficult to find short spoiler free reviews for light novels in English. For example I never in my life would have picked up spider girl but now I'm genuinely intrigued.

So I'm a Spider, So What? is pretty amazing. Very impressive what that book did to a genre that has been so oversaturated in the last years.

I gotta agree that it doesn't really make any sense not to list who's writing the short little review underneath each volume.

Outbreak Company V1 is being released in a week, so is it going to be included on this list?

I hope J-Novel can partner up with a publisher to get printed versions out some day, wouldn't mind picking up Outbreak Company (and some others)

Spider sounds interesting, but I don't think I'm going to start any new novel series any time soon.

I'm definitely going to pick up Lodoss next time there's Seven Seas sale. Not only do I love the OVA, but that description makes it sound really great =)

So I'm a Spider both looks and sounds real good. I'll have to try and find it.

"given her mutual feelings for the prince is frankly more than a little depressing"

From the end of Re:Zero Arc 4:

"She had always merely regarded him as dear, kind-hearted friend who she had not minded."

^ To be honest, that's what I was expecting, but it came off as much more romantic/mutual in this book. Of course, I feel like the impending tragedy was a big influence (and looks to be one in the next EX novel as well), so that may have influenced my interpretation.

Eiji at first seems to be the only person who remembers each (or at least most) iterations of March 2nd until he realizes that Aya Otonashi is not an ordinary transfer student.


Eiji is the author not the main character. It should say "Kazuki".

They've already partnered up with Seven Seas for Grimgar, Occultic;Nine, and Arifureta (in 2018). They're pretty nice releases.

I'm glad The Empty Box and Zeroth Maria got picked up. I read the first novel years back and really enjoyed it (was surprised when I learned there was a sequel, though I haven't gotten around to it..)
