I am really interested in the Great Cleric one. If done well, it could be a great new Isekai with an "older" protagonist. At the very least, the core idea of a fantasy healer in training sounds really appealing.

Man, it's sometimes hard being a JNC member. So many new series to keep up.

I've been loving the manga, I’m excited to pick up the LN when it comes out. Just a heads up at least in the manga the MC reincarnates younger then his past self, still it’s a fun little series that I’d recommend a try.

Is Girls Kingdom getting a new translation? I remember it was previously released as a bilingual ebook that seemed kinda poorly translated.

Crappy Social Game Club sounds neat, it's nice when a not-fantasy LN gets released in English.

Dungeon Busters sounds like a fun read. Might check out a few of the others too.

The last two titles are JNC’s first properties licensed from Micro Magazine, glad that relationship has finally been established.

And yes I do recall Girls Kingdom getting a Kindle release straight from the publisher a couple years ago with a poor translation, so this time it’s getting a proper release.
