Kino no Tabi Novel 1

Yes, you heard me right, according to the same article by Anime News Network that was refrenced in the below article, it was also mentioned directly by Tokyopop that the Kino no Tabi novel license was still suffering issues and had not been worked out as of yet.

Which leads me, as I’m sure you as well, to wonder what in the world was the ISSUE that it would be years and years later and they still haven’t been able to work it out? lol

    I would love to read more than 4 novels. Here in Germany we only have Novels 1-4 and the whole LN-Novels sold… not so well…
    So they put it on hold/cancelled.

    Its kinda sad… Just look at communities like 4chan, ANN, myanimelist etc…
    They like things like Spice and Wolf, Bakemonogatari etc.
    But when it comes to novels, they dont buy them. The whole “Anime/Manga”-Scene is kinda retarded. I read a lot of people there saying “I dont want to read. Far to exhausting” and things like that….

      We have to just hope that normal people will pick up these books and read them… In the US that seems hopeless, it’s a nation drifting deeper and deeper into the depths of laziness.

      Bakemonogatari – I’ve got to read that – I’m still reading Kara no Kyoukai though – reading Japanese is exhausting…. – I hope they get both of those out in English eventually to attract more readers. Niosioisin’s works seem to be doing at least reasonably well though… Still waiting on the rest of the Zaregoto series.

Welcome To Ranobe Cafe!

This marks the english speaking world's first dedicated light novel blog, bringing you news and views from the english perspective on light novels. 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!
