J-Novel club licensed Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria (The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar) manga

https://j-novel.club/s/the-master-of-ragnarok-blesser-of-einherjar-manga/search

SuBLime (I think they are part of Viz Media?) licensed Yondaime Ooyamato Tatsuyuki (Fourth Generation Head: Tatsuyuki Oyamato) for a physical and digital release. Renta still has the license, but they did it digitally only and under a different name, so which do we use for the English title? I would think the physical book title would be the one we'd use?

@Ren-chan - You'll have to check with the manga mods regarding Yondaime Ooyamato Tatsuyuki since the manga guidelines only touches on it briefly. For the news team, we have to stick to the English title that is found in the DB (or synonyms if those aren't available). Any changes made there will be reflected in the main post.
