Selena I think the Sword Art Online you have on the list is the manga version... This one's the novel: Sword Art Online 1: Aincrad

that's right, you can judge by the cover


message 3: by Maverynthia (new)

Maverynthia Tell me if I should remove some books as some of the book might be novels and not "light" novels.

Either way they have an anime or manga attached to them.


message 4: by Vitor (last edited Jul 07, 2015 08:30AM) (new)

Vitor Santos naruto vol 1 is on the list, but it's not a novel, it's manga :)

also, you;re missing the eureka 7 novels.


message 5: by Terrence (new)

Terrence I added all the current and upcoming J-Novel Club published titles. =]

These are the English titles for the JP books that haven't updated yet:

Mixed Bathing in Another Dimension: The Hero of the Unlimited Bath
異世界混浴物語 1 お風呂場の勇者 (オーバーラップ文庫) by 日々花長春

The Faraway Paladin: The Boy in the City of the Dead
最果てのパラディンI 死者の街の少年 (オーバーラップ文庫) by 柳野かなた

I Saved Too Many Girls and Caused the Apocalypse
俺がヒロインを助けすぎて世界がリトル黙示録!? 1巻 (ダンガン・コミックス) (Japanese Edition) by なめこ印


message 6: by dragon (new)

dragon a lot of these are manga titles lol


message 7: by Rose (new)

Rose I've gone through and removed some of the manga volumes that had been added, such as No Game, No Life Vol. 1. I've also removed the Japanese edition of Seraph of the End as it seems the English publication was an omnibus and has a separate entry (which I have added).


message 8: by Rose (new)

Rose Okay, I think I've removed all of the manga (and the King James Bible!). If you spot any other books that don't belong on this list, please do comment. :)
