Hmmm, the only name I recognize is only horizon and I'm still too far away from catching up with that one. I guess July will be another catch-up with old books time for me

No Kamachi title for July.

But I'm still hoping to get HO before this year is over...

There's no catching up, only falling behind ... forever.

---

If Horizon vol 6 part II is schedule for July, then last part is probably September. Here's hoping a nice cover because Mouri is just too ridiculous handsome with her smug face with part I. That, and I will never catch up until the series is over (probably), so I can only look at illustrations until then.

On another note! Narita's starting a new book (maybe series?)

... which is pretty exciting for me because it's at MW Bunko. Biblia and Minato are both MW label. I was considering reading Kachoufuugetsu series, which was recommended to me by the same person who told me to read Kami-inai. What I didn't realize is that all 3 have special pages dedicated to them on the website. Minato was a superb read; as expected from Hayama Tohru (author of 9s), there are slices of mystery, a ton of gore, wonderful mix of supernatural and science, and extremely interesting staging while featuring a sleaze-bag as protagonist (kinda non-existent for most LNs). Anyway, I digress. The new book comes out June, which is strange because that is same month as the new Durarara book (which Chaos mentioned 2 pages ago), and speaking of that the complete synopsis came out for that volume (actually spoilers this time).


Also I'm reusing Vol 11's cover because Vol 12's still isn't out and I doubt it would be as good).

Spoiler for vol12:
On top of all that, "Dungeon" (danmachi) (website) is getting comicalized!!! GA's 4th Grand Award winner (the only one so far, as there are none this year) featuring a ridiculously long title (-30 points), which was adapted from a web novel (-50 points) but with illustration by Yasuda Suzuhito (+10000 points). I still haven't got past halfway mark myself in volume 1, but this is one of those that I really, really like the art so I don't care if story's absolutely miserable (which it isn't so far).

GA tends to heavily market anything it can sell, and to be fair, Dungeon does decent for a GA label series. Volume 3 goes on sale 5/16, and here's a youtube link to the promo vid.


Finally, Talleyrand Coffee Shop vol 2 went on sale last week. First volume did amazingly well, at 400k shipment figure after the 9th reprint as of last September (and the latest volume 2 book jacket has the series at 800k shipment), and was considered a hidden gem (editors' recommended) by the 2011 "This Mystery Novel is Amazing" committee. I was pretty excited when I found out about it (was advertised as if you like Biblia, you should check this out), but the Amazon reviews were pretty much average to bad ... Volume 2's opening week was #2 on Oricon, but once again the highest rated review was only 2 stars. The author is new, so I'm hoping he would improve over time so we'll see how it goes from here, or unless someone has read it and tells me otherwise.


PS: All pictures can be enlarged except Talleyrand's.

For the RKB's case, I thought the cause is the upcoming SS2 of anime.

For the series that Hisasi draw the illustrations for.....

Huh? When did Black Bullet had a anime-adaption announcement? I haven't heard it before.
Oh, and 6 is "Tokage no Ou"


I’m just a new brat who can read Japanese a little bit. よろしくお願いします。

Are you sure you're not mixing up Black Bullet with Golden Time?

The latest Yakushiji novel was kinda of a let down after not having a book from that series for half a decade. I can totally see the hype for this though, but this is the year of epics with 12 Kingdoms, Seikai series, Five Star series and now this all getting attention .

Well, yes, it's not finished, but unlike many novels out there it has many strong stopping points.
In that manner it's kinda like LoGH.

Hell if it comes down to it, they could simply ignore part 2 and act like part 1 is all there is, and it'd end just fine.

Oh, and I'd love return of 12 Kingdoms and Seikai series, but for FFS... eh.
I've seen nothing but rage reactions concerning the stupid reboot. WTF Nagano, seriously, WTF.
It's like he got tired of actually finishing the series, and decided LOL RESET. Pissed off a lot of Five Star Stories fans.

He finished LoGH! Anyway, Arslan is unfinished (damn Tanaka), but as aohige said the end of act 1 can serve as a pretty good ending. (Frankly, I think the story would be better off that way.)

But... why Arakawa Hiromu? Why??!

Arakawa still have weekly series in Gin no Saji though. I wonder if she(he?) will be okay with another series even if it's just an adaptation of existing work.

Yup! Apparently Tytania got a revival too. Twitter has funny reactions. YOU ONLY HAD TO WAIT 22 YEARS FOR THIS. That almost equals than my current lifespan.

Anime should be coming middle of June, if that announcement's a lie then I don't believe in love anymore. If nothing else, would be hilarious to see another title capable of destroying SAO appearing.

I thought they're going to just serialize this in the magazine, didn't think they would actually novelize it ... would they really do this if it's just split 2-cour


Some other stuff that's MW/Kadokawa Bunko related that most people don't care about.
