Light Novel Release Calendar

Last Updated: February 19th, 2015.

Support the authors and the English publishers by buying the currently published light novels. By buying them grows the chance for more titles being published in the future. 🙂

*I have various sources (like ranobe-mori.net) for checking when a new volume is coming out, so the number of volumes released listed down include those that are yet to be released, or yet to be officially announced.
