If they are as good as enterbrain to select the good ones from Narou and as dedicated to ameliorate them afterwards, that could be good. If they're not, then that won't lead to anything , at least for me.

Nice, I was afraid they would be running out of crap to animate. Never stop making them LNs, Nippon.

I'm kinda curious to see how the Koutetsujou no Kabaneri series will compare to the anime.

I'm surprised that he isn't working on Koutetsujou no Kabaneri

They want a piece of the Isekai money pie, can't blame them for trying :)

Oooh Kabaneri.
I hope it'll be successful so they could publish more in the future.

Looking forward to almost all new Light Novels.

Can't wait.
