SYNOPSIS: A contemporary classic, 5 Centimeters per Second won animator Makoto Shinkai international renown as a rare talent. Indeed, he just might be one of the most powerful bards of romantic longing and thwarted love working today in any medium. This official novelization narrates from the other side—for instance, from the point-of-view of the girl rather than the boy in the legendary first segment, “Cherry Blossoms”—to tell a story that is both deeply engaging for first-timers and astonishingly fresh for fans of the film.

The author of fantasy novels based on the Shining videogame series, Arata Kanoh is best known for his imaginative prose adaptations of the masterpieces of Japan’s hottest animator. Most recently, his take on Your Name was the #1 Kindle bestseller at Amazon Japan.

New and Notable Light Novels for November 2019

In this video I cover the new and notable light novels being officially released in English during the month of November, 2019.

Unfortunately, there are 2 titles not covered in this video, as they were announced after the video went live.

Both titles are from Sol Press.

First up, a title Sol Press already announced as part of its Panty Press line, Busy Wizard: This Warlock Just Wants to Provide for his Wives! Vol. 1. This title will go live November 21.

This is a R18 adult title.

“If you can use magic, then you will become popular!” Chris who has been deceived by those words, continued to practice dark magic in the mountains. He ended his days of training and helped a beautiful slave girl that was attacked in the middle of his journey to the city. That girl Olivia has a curse which is “cursed with bad feeling when pointed at favor”, and was banished from her household because of it. Chris, who had fallen for Olivia at first sight, ask her to marry him. He experienced his first night with Olivia who accepted the offer, and in addition to “rising up”, he had the purpose of “making my bride happy”. Chris who visited the temple to unravel the curse of Olivia, is suddenly recognized as a “Hero” by the oracle of the Goddess of Law. Because of that, Chris’s life changed completely, and suddenly gets a mansion. One day, he was asked by Diane-san, a millionaire who was good friends with Olivia ..?

Also just announced is a new license. And it’s a title that’s been long-wanted by the light novel fanbase.

Chivalry of a Failed Knight!

They will be releasing volumes 1-3 on November 16.

Modern mages, known as Mage-Knights, materialize their souls as armaments. Attending a school for Mage-Knights is Ikki Kurogane, a failed knight—the Worst One.
One day, he is challenged by Stella, a Rank A knight, to a duel, putting lifelong servitude on the line. What Ikki lacks in magical power, however, he makes up for with his unorthodox mastery of the sword, leading him to victory!
“I’ll do it! Make me do whatever you want! Stupid creep!” Though she regrets her defeat, Stella begins to fall for Ikki.
Meanwhile, in the battle for the top of the knight world, the Worst One begins to grab the attention of every Mage-Knight out there, becoming known as Another One!
The curtain rises on Ikki’s school-based, sword-action underdog tale as he cuts through one powerful foe after another!

Even more to look forward to in November!

SYNOPSIS:
Award-winning director and author Makoto Shinkai offers a romantic sci-fi tale about young love and space adventure, based on his animated film. This new novel gives readers more insight into Mikako and Noboru’s relationship.
Fans of the original series will again be immersed in the beautiful world of Shinkai.

The word, “world”…

I vaguely thought it meant anywhere there was cell phone reception.

It’s the year 2046. Mikako Nagamine and Noboru Terao are middle school classmates, tentatively sharing an unspoken first love—but unbeknownst to him, Mikako has been recruited into the UN Space Force, and instead of going on to high school, will join the spacecraft Lysithea to search for alien Tarsians. As she travels further and further to the outer reaches of the solar system, the time it takes for a text message to reach the Earth grows longer and longer. Back on Earth, time passes normally for Noboru, but as the years pass he still can’t forget the voice on the other side of the cell phone…

Steeped in nostalgia and memory, Arata Kanoh brings to the page the award-winning OVA by acclaimed filmmaker Makoto Shinkai, director of She and Her Cat, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, Garden of Words, 5 Centimeters per Second, and the highest-grossing anime film of all time, Your Name.
Arata Kanoh is a writer who has produced novelizations of Makoto Shinkai’s other works, including 5 Centimeters Per Second (also available from Vertical).
