Sentai is gonna ruin Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou aren't they?

And licensing for MP100 manga still hasn't come around yet. Hopefully after the Blu-Ray release it'll finally happen.

Sukasuka being licensed is cool. Peoples who wanted to know more about the questions left unanswered by the anime will now be able to, and peoples wanting to support that beautiful novel series will be able as well, without having to order novels in a language they don't understand.

Good job Yen press.

Seeing as Seven Seas is licensing novels for physical release that J-Manga Club licensed first for digital release, are they using the same translations for the physical copies or are they doing their own? I ask because the first two volumes of Clockwork Planet are out digitally but the physical books won't be out until next year.

*J-Novel

Pretty sure it's the same, just printed. No reason for it not to be.

That's what I meant, yeah. Forgot which was which.

That helps, then, since I'd rather have the digital copies anyway and I wasn't sure if there would be any differences if I waited or not.
