Bacanno, as one of the western light novel OGs, is getting a lovely hardcover release. But an even more lovely and special hardcover release is coming for Record of Lodoss War: The Grey Witch, the first volume in that series. That one is especially nice to see heading over with some extra love.
Besides that we’ve got some more volume ones in How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord, Walking My Second Path in Life, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, and The Saga of Tanya the Evil. We’re also getting more of the Kingdom Hearts novels, which is nice!
It’s a healthy mix of new stuff and the strong, long-running releases like Sword Art Online, Accel World, The Asterisk War, and Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? And the humorous My Big Sister Lives in a Fantasy World is still coming along too.
As with last month, we’ve got two releases of The Irregular at Magic High School coming in December too!
Are you buying anything this month?
I have a big shelf of anime and manga stuff that Record of Lodoss War would look great on!
Okay so you know I have to try That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.
For some reason I didn’t realise there were Kingdom Hearts light novels. But of course there are. (੭ ˘•ω•˘)੭ु⁾⁾
Mixed Bathing in Another Dimension sounds relaxing… ((“Ｑ(´▽｀｡)
