Dragon Daddy Diaries sounds super cute!
Dahlia in Bloom sounds like a guilty pleasure read. Will add them to my reading list

Hell Mode sounds interesting.
I hope this means we can get one of the Dahlia manga at some point.

Nice, I had read some of the fan translations for several of these and being able to have an official translation is great to hear. Especially for the ones that the fan translations have kind of dropped off.

Despite the initial sounding of the premise for My Daughter Left the Nest and Returned an S-Rank Adventurer, the story is actually pretty interesting in the events that occur to both Belgrieve and Angeline. spoiler[Not sure if it changes later on, but commonly Belgrieve and Angeline's stories are separate, so frequently it's events happening to Belgrieve or events that are happening to Angeline in their own different locals that may or may not be connected to the events happening to the other.]

Were these digital only or some physical?

Dragon Daddy Diaries sounds utterly heartwarming and Dahlia in Bloom sounds like a (potentially) fantastic exploration of self and autonomy. Sign me up.

Hell Mode could be interesting too, depending on how it's handled.

As far as I know, none of these came with any promises for physical in the future. If an anime gets announced or their ebooks sell really well, then they get higher priority for print.

Hope I can get physical copies for S-Rank daughter and Reborn King. I've been following the series before and if it gives me a chance to buy them and support the author, I totally would.

Putting so much no-name gimmick template narou isekai through J-Novel Club's high quality localization process is like casting pearls before swine. I have nothing against those who enjoy such novels of course, and I've enjoyed many such novels myself, but I sincerely hope the Kadokawa acquisition will pay off for them soon and allow them to pursue some more works with quality of source to match the quality of localization in addition to these kinds of licenses.

I had a feeling that was the case. I appreciate the response, thanks!

I keep hoping to see JNC pick up Scrapped Princess, like they did with Slayers and Full Metal Panic.
