Hmmm, so Last and First Idol is a yuri short story. I heard work this was originally a Love Live fanfic but then changed the names.

Another season would also go down nicely, maybe this time with 2 cours, anyone else agree?

A little underwhelming. Interested in Amagi, Kokoro Connect and Seirei Gensouki but the rest of them don't appeal to me.

I was hoping for Kenja no Mago or Tomozaki-kun. Hope that they get licensed soon.

Surprised at the lack of response when it comes to the isekai sex worker synopsis. One of the first female isekai leads I've seen in quite awhile and she's basically content with being the best sex worker she can be? Awkward.

I'm not into depressing stuff and it's only one volume. When they gave the hint that one of the light novels had snusnu I was hoping for Shinmai Maou to get licensed...

while i'm happy for the localization, i'm always disappointed when they license anything that I really want too get cause i only buy physical, amagi brilliant park and outbreak company are two I was hoping too get.
Now much like how mangagamer operates i gotta hope it does well enough in digital sales too warrant physical copies.

Wow, the Orphen novels getting licensed?! If you'd ask me just last week what I'd think of that possibility, I would've said impossible. I usually don't buy digital, but I'll probably make an exception for Orphen.

Still no Beyond the Boundary, Pet Girl of Sakurasou, Noucome, or Baka and Test. Sad

They also announced a Print line they're starting up. Whilst they are only starting with one title, they stated they'd add more as they get the rights to, so hopefully the ones you were looking forward to are included.

Personally, I'm hoping The Faraway Paladin and Amagi Brilliant Park become apart of their physical line.

Okay, Kokoro Connect has me interested. I don't think the post-Michi-Random novels even got fan translations. (I was always curious about the change in school years -- how can they recruit freshmen for the club in good conscience if they can't tell them what they're signing up for, i.e., potentially three years of Heartseed screwing around with them?)

If someone from J-Novel club is reading this--I am so excited that you are releasing older light novels! Is there anyway you can consider license rescues? I'd love to see Scrapped Princess and Twelve Kingdoms! Thanks!
