Del Rey Delaying Zaregoto Book 2?

Cover of Second Zaregoto Novel

The second novel in the Zaregoto light novel series being published by Del Rey was supposed to have been released sometime in June or July of this year.

However, upon checking Amazon and some other online book sellers, a release date of “June 22, 2010” is listed. In fact, the cover you see here could only be found on a small handful of sites. Amazon, along with many other sellers, doesn’t list any cover at all.

So what’s going on? Is Del Rey delaying the release of this novel like many other Publishers have before it?

    D: I was waiting on this, the first one was so good… In the end I’m just going to have to buy it from and read it myself.

    It’ll probably come out eventually – the Faust editing group that’s publishing this is at least getting Faust out on time, the the translations for that thus far have been pretty good.

    The Japanese Light Novel Fanbase is like the Japanese Mahjong fanbase. Tiny. We just need to drag more people into it. I need to read more myself and blog about it myself.

    And it’s NISIOISIN after all – hopefully Bakemonogatari’ll get more of an audience directed at light novels and NisiOisiN. Hopefully

    I am upset by the delay too, I tried emailing Del Ray but I never got a response. Here’s hope that the big success of the Bakemonogatari anime will bring over those novels as there are only 2 of them and in turn we get more Zaregoto.

We are more than just a blog about light novels though, we also stand in awe of the many other literary works crossing over to the West from Japan. So expect to also see articles that dabble from time to time in Cell Phone Novels and Japanese Sci-Fi works, to mention a few.

So come all you light novel enthusiasts! Come one and all! We may be a niche, and may represent one of the smallest markets in these economically troubled times, but we are also one of the most dedicated! So let us come together and support the industry we love and hold so dearly!
