They probably picked this LN since the way the world works is very game-like and they expect similar popularity to SAO.
I feel like this will be a flop since it's relatively unknown to the western fanbase and it didn't have media exposure like SAO.

Very simple. It's coming out in english, which means odds are you can find it in your nearest Barnes&Nobles.

Fuh, depends on your zone. Where I'm standing is more fleasible to get imports from Japan rather than the US.

You see this is the problem, I very much doubt I will find it in ANY store in my country, so how will I read it now? And will the one who was translating the series on bt continue to translate it? Because yen press has a boatload of series it has to translate and it worry's me that it won't translate this one for a long time.

You don't live in America? If Yen Press is in your country then you might be able to get it.

Don't worry about the novel on BT. Yen Press only licensed the manga.

It was just the manga? Thank god, I thought it was the LN. Then we will still get fan translations of the manga right? If yes then everything is still a-ok.

LNs are harder to swing for licensing than manga. Whoops. Sorry. I was wrong. It is the novel.

No more LN translations, but cheer up. We didn't even get past volume 1 in translations so its much better to get them in English.

That's debatable, I don't like Localization, I prefer it when translations leave the honorifics like onee-sama and other words in. Also like I said, I doubt they will release even the first volume anytime soon. I would rather prefer the chinese to english translations from the guy translating it on BT.

Is Yen Press reliable? I mean, are they capable of releasing the novels at a fixed pace? Since they do have a catch up to do.

Yen Press is covering SAO, AW, Index, Spice and Wold, and other manga series. So they got quite a lot on their plates, but it shouldn't be a problem. We should be more concerned about the quality of translations, but the terminology in this particular series is simple so I wouldn't be too concerned.

I'm actually asking about their track record. How did they do so far? Especially in terms of release pace, and maybe translations. Are there any projects that they dropped? I'm not from US so I don't really know anything about YP.

Nonetheless, if their pace is slow .. I don't think it'll catch up to SAO, AW, even more to Index. I'll get old waiting.

Well, the only other novel series I can think of is Spice and Wolf, which has been somewhat inconsistent in release dates, but recently it's gotten more frequent. In any case, Danmachi is a relatively simple novel so I think we can expect decent popularity among Americans and with that more frequent releases.

I don't think they've dropped anything, but I know they don't play catch-up and NEVER release at a faster rate than the original. Lately, they've managed to release at the same rate as the original, though.

I see... Thank you.

Then I guess I should manage my time to step up my Japanese lesson.

I guess it was licensed before it ever finished translating volume 1.

Meh, can't say I'm too happy. I have no way of buying them and I don't know how long they take to translate. I guess I'll just have to follow the manga for some while lol.
