I’m really late for this month’s post! Things have been rather busy for me lately, but I think the rest of this month will fare better. Let’s start by taking a look at last month’s releases, and the light novels that are set for November.

Recent Releases

Rising of the Shield Hero (vol 2), No Game No Life (vol 3), and Sword Art Online: Progressive (vol 3) all released in October! And then last week, the first epilogue novel for the Naruto franchise was released–this one is titled Kakashi’s Story.

I still need to make an entry for it, so for now here are links for where you can pick up Naruto: Kakashi’s Story online. (Amazon -- Barnes and Noble -- Book Depository) Note: It is available both in paperback and in ebook format (Kindle, Nook).

Upcoming Releases

On November 17th, the following light novels will release in English: Log Horizon (vol 3), Accel World (vol 5), Durarara!! (vol 2), and A Certain Magical Index (vol 5). That’s coming up quick.

  1. “The Ambition of Oda Nobuna light novel series will be getting a re-release in Japan, complete with new covers.” – I think you need to change the tense of this. They came out in September.

    1. No problem! I really like your video reviews; they’re concise and do a good job getting across what you like and dislike about each volume.
