This thread is created to discuss some of the news, topics, newest and old releases/d under these imprints that has no specific thread.

For those LN readers who knew some titles that's never been popular but under these two imprints who wants to people be enlightened good or bad, or anything that you want to suggest that have to do under this LN imprint, feel free to do so.

It's just me or Famitsu always have some video game
based novels each release ? Not the theme, but a already published product.

So that's what those posters meant when they mentioned something along the likes of Famitsu's incoming drought. Now it makes more sense to me.

I'm thinking of following 召喚主は家出猫 by 鷹見一幸 (Takami Kazuyuki). Has anyone read this yet, or are familiar with the author? Second volume's just about to come out in a few days, so it's most likely unheard of in this forum, but I'm hoping some people know of the author.

I hope Sneaker lets Sugihara-sensei continue with 聖剣の姫と神盟騎士団 for several more volumes. It's become a favorite of mine. :(

Hasn't Rental Magica also ended too?

Utsuro no Hako 2013-09-25 18:04

Well Famitsu has Shinonome Yuuko which is supposed to be really good.

Why combine these 2 bunko labels? And what about the other smaller imprints?

Sneaker actually has a quality line-up to stand by itself (though it seems to be boarding the ecchi/harem train to survive/thrive??? with some of its titles).

Cross x Regalia by RM's author. And it's somewhat easier to read than RM.

about the other thread, I will try to create later on, that will be the GA + gagaga + Sdash.

I combined this since I thought that famitsu will easily rolled on the back, also for the sneaker (even though I knew sneaker can be on par with the previous 3. Aside from that most discussed today were from the 3 previous thread I opened (since most tled one was from those imprints) that's why I've just combined these 2

KKN has ended quite a good time ago after 15 main volumes and 7 side stories volume. Well, it's Akira we 're talking about. For that author, writing two volumes of the same series in two months doesn't seem to be a problem, so obviously the series he write can be finished quite fast :heh:.

I read the third volume of this series a week or two ago, and discovered that the anime is quite different compared to the original material. While there's also a lot of stupid and comical stuff done by the characters, the LN seems to really be two faced just like its characters, with a lot of heavy subjects, tormented characters, as well as some gruesome scenes here and there. The third volume had a far darker tone than its anime counterpart (even though that arc was adapted i nthe anime as well), and was far more interesting than the anime as well. Looking forward to the next volumes.


While I'm taking about looking forward to some famitsu bunko title, by the end of next week I'll start B.A.D. as well, who received a lot of praise volumes after volumes (currently up to the 11th volume, still running) from its readers.

BAD! I've heard a lot of good things for that one. Do share with us your impressions of it once you start reading!

By the way, has anyone purchased something off Famitsu Bunko recently? They seem to have something going on right now for their 15th anniversary, as these were included in my shipment. It's probably only for newly-released titles, I guess?

Zefyris 2013-09-27 11:18

Last purchase was in may, I didn't see anything in the 9 volumes I purchased from famitsu at that time. NExt purchase is in december, maybe there will be some there?

Of course I will, especially if the novel is as good as I heard :3.
.. Only 3 more volumes to read before starting B.A.D. vol 1.

Hemisphere 2013-09-27 13:04

Really? Hmm...maybe it's for select titles, or something just recently. I'll have to check Famitsu Bunko's blog soon for more details.

My next set of purchases will probably be in December as well! I'll be buying up mostly Famitsu Bunko titles, like getting the second volume of 夜姫と亡国の六姫士, then volumes 1 to 4 of 覇剣の皇姫アルティーナ; hopefully 黒鋼の魔紋修復士 8 as well, since the afterword for volume 7 mentioned that it would come out either November or December.

B.A.D. is pretty good, I must say. Certainly way beyond the average amongst those that I read.

What I like about Famitsu is that they rope in their authors to write 'themed stories'. A selection of authors will write short stories based on the theme given to them, and release them all in an anthology. For example, '3 minutes - Boy Meet Girls' has works from 19 authors, based on the themes, but with different ideas. You can get ideas from the authors of Baka Test, Sasami-san, Kokoro Connect, Bungaku Shoujo, and marvel at the variety of ideas they can think of given a relatively restrictive theme like this.

For Famitsu's future, I do think it can still do well compared to Kadokawa Sneaker. Nomura Mizuki, for example, has confirmed she will continue to write for Famitsu (though it's a vampire story.........I know......). And yes, she has confirmed that she had finished writing Hikaru.

As for Kadokawa Sneaker, I have lot quite a bit of interest in this brand after the end of Rental Magica, but I will continue to keep an eye on this.

Can that be found in our Kino and what's the genre?

Hemisphere 2013-10-02 13:24

I wish my place had a local Kino. :(

I haven't checked out any of Famitsu Bunko's short story anthologies. :o They sure sound interesting!

Preorder (Of all the Famitsu titles they have, the most stock they have are Baka Test, Kokoro Connect...and Dress na Boku dan:heh:). It's actually a mystery story.
