Light Novel Debuts for July 2021

Here are the light novel series making their debut during the month of July, 2021.

A slower month for new releases, with only 3 new series. This is partly because Yen On decided to move their 2 new releases slated for this month to August.

So we have 2 advance digital releases from Seven Seas’ Airship imprint, and 1 new series from J-Novel Club.

Loner Life in Another World

Loner Life in Another World Volume 1

A sarcastic isekai comedy about surviving in a fantasy world with only the weirdest magic powers. Inspired the hit manga!

When sarcastic loner Haruka gets transported with his class to another world, he’s not wild about adventuring, but he wouldn’t mind having some cool powers. Unfortunately, he’s last in line when the magic cheat skills get divvied up, so by the time it’s Haruka’s turn, there are no good choices left. Now Haruka will have to take on this fantasy world the hard way–on his own, with a hodgepodge of bizarre skills! When infighting and chaos break out among his classmates, can this loner come to the rescue?

The Sidekick Never Gets the Girl, Let Alone the Protag’s Sister!

The Sidekick Never Gets the Girl, Let Alone the Protag’s Sister! Volume 1

Then: Kunugi Kou waged bloody warfare as a hero in another world. Now: He’s a perfectly average high-schooler with a perfectly exceptional best friend: Ayase Kaito. The living incarnation of every cheesy romcom protagonist ever written, Kaito’s charming personality and looks that could kill have earned himself the harem of quirky beauties that every protagonist deserves—and Kou is dead-set on supporting him from the shadows as the ultimate wingman extra! And it’s all going great—that is, until a wrench is thrown into the works in the form of another romcom staple: the protagonist’s little sister, Ayase Hikari, who meets Kou under the most outlandish of circumstances possible. Even worse, it kinda sorta just maybe seems like she might have a thing for him? Now it’s up to the world’s most “extra” extra to crawl his way back into the obscurity he longs for!

My Status as an Assassin Obviously Exceeds the Hero’s

My Status as an Assassin Obviously Exceeds the Hero’s Volume 1 Cover

Transported to a fantasy world for a roguish new take on the isekai genre. (And don’t miss the manga adaptation, also from Seven Seas!)

Oda Akira is the kind of guy who people forget is even there. His unassuming nature pays off, though, when his entire class is swept away to a fantasy world, and he slips easily into his new role as a silent assassin. Between his suspiciously high starting stats and too many details that don’t fit, Akira is sure something is wrong. But digging into royal secrets is a dangerous game, and when Akira uncovers an evil scheme, he also makes a powerful enemy—the very king who brought him to this world! With the help of the elven spirit medium Amelia, can he find the power to set things right, and get his revenge?
