I know there was a post made about a year ago asking for 4500 likes/reblogs to try and possible get the novel "From the New World" licensed. I've been trying to find said post to see what the final numbers were, in hopes that the novel would indeed get translated, but it seems like the post has been deleted. Did it get the required number of notes? As a fan of manga, light novels, and foreign science fiction novels, I want to thank you guys for all you do!
Nope. It fell way way short.
Thanks for the support though. We have many other translated novels for you to read, though. We just released a new one this week - Death & the Flower.
Hey, guys! I’ll be at SDCC from Thursday to Sunday@ Table F4 in the Exhibitor Table area. I’ll have books, prints, t-shirts & more! Stop by if you’re around!
Go say hi to Felipe and buy his stuff! Then with whatever you have left over then go to our booth and buy our stuff.

Hello Ed and other Vertical staff! I wanted to let you know the copies of Sickness Unto Death arrived today, packaged safely by Reda Smith. Thank you again for your time. I look forward to receiving my copy of Chi's Sweet Home v11 next month, and hope to see your release of Tonari no Seki-kun available for pre-order soon. ~Nathan Werning
Awesome! Thanks for participating!
Tomorrow I will begin (and hopefully end) my marathon read of the first 9 volumes of Knights of Sidonia! Too bad I couldn’t get volumes 3 or 4 from the library…but the Internet should sub in for them! I’m quite excited…
Yup. We have the first 10 volumes in stores and eBooks for the first 9 vols.
