This is a thread for any light novel news. It's more efficient than creating a new light novel thread especially with the foot traffic and how obscure some of the light novels are despite some have been adapted into anime and manga series.
"Hundred" - the only weapon capable of fighting the Savages, mysterious life forms attacking Earth. Hayato enters the battleship university Little Garden in hopes of becoming a Slayer... but his roommate Emile Crossfode, who seems to know a lot about him for some reason, awakens a sort of unsettling nostalgia within him. What's more, right after he joins the school, the strongest Slayer at Little Garden, the "Queen" Claire Harvey, challenges him to a duel!
The official Twitter account for the Oreimo franchise's Kirino Kōsaka character revealed on Sunday that the spinoff novel centering on Ayase is slated to ship on August 10. The novel is titled Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Ayase if Jō. While the announcement did not explicitly reveal how many volumes the new spinoff will have, the labeling of the title suggests two or three volumes for the series (the jō "upper" suffix is usually used in two- or three-part series, with the latter two parts labeled chū "middle," and ge "lower").
The spinoff is based on the Ayase route from the Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Portable PlayStation Portable game, and will feature a revised and expanded version of the scenario that original author Tsukasa Fushimi wrote for the game.
Bandai Namco Games released the Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Portable PlayStation Portable game in 2011. Tsukasa Fushimi and Hiro Kanzaki's original Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (Oreimo) light novel series ran from 2008 to 2013. Sakura Ikeda drew the manga adaptation and the Oreimo: Kuroneko (Ore no Kouhai ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai) spinoff manga that debuted in 2011. The novels inspired a television anime adaptation in 2010 with a second season in 2013.
Illustrator Sabotenn revealed on their Twitter account on October 11 that the 12th volume of Sekina Aoi's Gamers! light novel series is the final volume. The 12th volume shipped on Saturday.
The series centers on the gaming lives of various high school students who play video games, including: Keita Amano, a lonely young man who loves video games; Karen Tendō, the beautiful president of the video game club; Chiaki Hoshinomori, who constantly fights with Keita; and Tasuku Uehara, who puts on a facade of being satisfied with his life in the real world, but he in truth loves video games.
Aoi and Sabotenn launched the novel series in 2014. Tsubasa Takahashi launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in October 2016. Kadokawa will publish the seventh and final compiled book volume for the manga on October 26.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.

Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
