Good news.
Was kinda annoyed JNC didn't license the LN at the same time they did the Manga, but glad we have it now!

The quality of the fan translation is off the charts. I wonder how the JNC can beat that.

Very excited for this license. The translator also revealed on Twitter that he will (hopefully) stick to a 2-month per volume schedule, which is insane given how long the volumes are. I will be supporting this release and really hope it’ll be profitable for them enough for a paperback.

I just read the two parts they posted, and you can rest easy, it's good.

That was a surprise!? Shocked Soon after this announcement they now got the Full Metal Panic! novel. I thought there were only 3 new novel licenses, Bookworm being the third and last one of those.
