Third Reborn on the Mars Novel

Well, at least, two of their light novels are now confirmed for a release according to Anime News Network.

Which two? Brace yourself…….

1. Trinity Blood: Reborn on the Mars Vol. 3 (To be Released November 3, 2009)

2. Chibi Vampire Vol. 6

It’s not so much a surprise considering both were hot selling titles in their novel lines.

This should of course give the Light Novel community a sigh of relief to see that Tokyopop has not given up on its novels and is still working out ways to  release them.

    And where is my Missing? It was “only” solicited….

    The first two novels of MISSING were brought out, but they didn’t sell well enough for TokyoPop to consider publishing more. Sorry.

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!
