posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Digital publishing company J-Novel Club announced on Saturday that it has licensed Mine and Kabocha's [New Life+] Young Again in Another World (Nidome no Jinsei wo Isekai de) light novel series. The first half of the first volume is available for members to read now, and non-members can read a free preview. J-Novel Club will release the first volume as an e-book in mid-March.
J-Novel Club describes the story:
All of a sudden, out of nowhere.
“Renya Kunugi, you have passed away!”
So said the young girl who styled herself God.
Apparently, Renya Kunugi the Protagonist had lived long and prospered. His life already came to a peaceful and fulfilling end, but at the request of Her Holiness, he was transported to an alternate world to start a new life as a young man.
Thus did Renya, who was definitely your average everyday guy, end up fighting off bandits and vanquishing monsters. Eventually, after his successively blossoming talents coalesce into a force of sheer awesomeness, he will go on to leave his mark upon this alternate world.
Mine launched the novels on the "Shōsetsu ni Narō" website in January 2014. Hobby Japan began publishing printed novels for the series starting in November 2014 with illustrations by Kabocha. Hobby Japan published the 17th novel volume on October 21.
