But why then do Americans constantly license all these mediocre isekai, generic yuri / BL and shitty ecchi every year?
Because there are just so many companies to license here...

One of the best things about living in America is that we get manga and LN licenses that the rest of the world never see.


They won't see it, because it's not even a hit, but just a manga with a popular fetish or a trend from illegal manga resources, yes.

For Slime Taoshite 300-nen, Shiranai Uchi ni Level Max ni Nattemashita, it's v11 of the LN releasing, not the manga.

Haven't purchased anything coming out this month but a lot of my library holds are on here (10 Dance, I Cannot Reach You, Boys Run the Riot) so it's a decent enough lineup

Should be Spy Classroom Vol. 2 releasing this month, not vol 1


I used the wrong picture of the manga Vol.1 (╯ ͡❛ ͜ʖ ͡❛)╯┻━┻. Vol.1 of the manga is being released as well as Vol.2 of the light novel.

Jan 11, 10:44 AM by Aiimee

Vol 13 of Rokudenashi, hm. Just this and 3 more volumes 'til the end of the manga.

Should be Spy Classroom Vol. 2 releasing this month, not vol 1
