posted on by Rai Kelly
North American publisher Cross Infinite World announced on Friday that it has licensed the light novel series Obsessions of an Otome Gamer (Ongaku de Otome wa Sukuenai). The first volume of the light novel is set for release as an electronic book in early 2018.
Natsu wrote the story online on the Shōsetsu-ka ni Narou platform in 2014, and added an alternate ending in 2015-2016. Shoyu provided illustrations. Cross Infinite World describes the story:
Rejected by her first crush, Mashiro finds herself hooked on an unbeatable music-themed otome game. Her high school days are spent learning the wonders of music, obsessively trying to claim the romance ending with the handsome 2D character who stole her broken heart. On the way home from her college entrance exams she gets distracted by a billboard for the game's remake and unexpectedly falls down a manhole and plunges to her death!
Mashiro finds herself reincarnated in a world bearing similarities to the otome game she was obsessed with. Only this time, she has no idea how to avoid the twists and turns of certain character routes, including the bad endings! Now, as a seven-year-old, she decides to walk the path of a pianist to embrace the musical world to its fullest, but no matter where she turns, she just can't seem to escape triggering events and getting involved with troublesome yet handsome characters!
Cross Infinite World's catalog of light novels also includes My Favorite Song ~The Silver Siren~, The Violet Knight, and Akaoni: Contract With A Vampire. The previously announced light novel series I Became The Secretary of A Hero is listed as "coming in 2017."
The company has also published the manga series Gleam and Little Hero as e-books. Yusen Ruten, also previously announced, is still listed as "coming soon."
