Isuna Hasekura, author of the popular bestselling light novel series “Spice and Wolf”, this past Monday has launched a new manga called Billionaire Girl in the sixth issue of Kodansha’s Good! Afternoon magazine. Teaming up with manga artist Asuka Katsura (of such works like Blood+, Le Portrait de Petit Cossette), the story follows Takatō, an ordinary college student who has been hired as the tutor of Fujioko, a girl who has earned 17 billion yen (about $180 million in US dollars) as a daytrader. Unlike the popular Light Novel series of Hasekura’s, the story will take place in Modern Japan. The manga series will be published on an irregular schedule within the magazine according to Katsura’s website.

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!
