‘Important Announcement’ for Honzuki no Gekokujō Light Novels Teased
Publisher TO Books posted a picture of the 10th volume of Miya Kazuki and Yō Shiina’s Honzuki no Gekokujō ~Shisho ni Naru Tame ni wa Shudan wo Erandeiraremasen~ light novel series on its official Twitter account on Tuesday. The book’s wraparound jacket band is blurred, and the Twitter post teases that the jacket band will have an important announcement. The volume (seen right) is slated for release on March 10.
The novels center on Urano Motosu, a girl who has loved books since childhood, and decides to be a librarian after graduating from college. However, she dies from an accident, and is reincarnated into another world as the five-year-old daughter of a soldier in a world that resembles the European Middle Ages. The people have a low literacy rate, and books are few and far between. She resolves to write more books, enough to become a librarian in her very own library.
Kazuki launched the story on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in 2013. TO Books began publishing the story in print novels with the first book in January 2015. The Shosen Book Tower book store in Akihabara ranked the series as its #9 best-selling light novel series of 2016. Suzuka is drawing a manga adaptation of the novels, which launched on the Nico Nico Seiga website in October 2015. TO Books published the manga’s third compiled book volume in November, and the fourth volume will ship on Saturday.
