August 2014 KLNs

Releases are happening! I hope you haven't already given up on waiting for them. As long as you don't expect the release frequency to be on par with Dawnbringer Volume 1, I think we can all end up as winners on this one.

But until then, (late) KLN news!

  Click on the images to see their respective teaser ads.

August 2014

New releases: Title: 사월화 리버스 (Dead Moon Flower - Rebirh)
Author: 아웰 (Awel)
Artist: NEAN  
Publisher: Seed Novel

The protagonist, on his way back home from a part time job at night, unfortunately gets killed by a squid-like monster that drains souls. A girl shows up in time to kill the monster and revive the protagonist back to life. Even more unfortunately, the revive process doesn't go smoothly, and his body ends up being trapped in a tiny body made out of aluminum foil.

Pre-Read Thoughts:
One of the pre-order bonuses is a roll of aluminum foil. Really...
Title: 몇 살이 좋아? (How Old Would You Like Me?)
Author: 섬마을김씨 (Kim from an Island Village)
Artist: Yuran
Publisher: Novel Engine

The protagonist and his childhood friend have grown apart over time. One day, however, his childhood friend appears to him from two different timelines; the 14 year old version, back when the two were still good friends; and the 22 year old version, who claims to have married with the protagonist sometime in the future. With their appearance, the protagonist's relationship in the present advance further.

Pre-Read Thoughts:
Does it qualify as a harem of all three girls are actually the same girl?

Post-Read Low-Quality B&W Image:
Double deluxe. Title: 모애모애 조선유학 (Moe Moe Study of Chosun)
Author: 이지환 (Lee Jihwan)
Artist: 솜즈
Publisher: Seed Novel

Delayed release. There was a controversy around the way they applied moe personification on a historically well-known Korean scholar; half of the reactions involved people thinking it as a disgrace to Korea, while the other half worried that other people will think that it's a disgrace to Korea. Ultimately, Seed Novel apologized and promised to not use any real names... which seems to just mean that they'll change a single letter around.

tl;dr It's Hetalia all over again!

...Some murder mystery? With a lot of jokes involving breast sizes?

Pre-Read Thoughts:
Notable for turning a loli heroine into a titty monster in less than a year's worth of canon time. Title: 울티메이트 크로스 4 (Ultimate Cross Vol. 4)
Author: unlock
Artist: Henshako
Publisher: Novel Engine
Final volume.

...Eh, the teaser just says that this is the final volume. Thanks for the summary, I guess...?


Teaser TBD Title: 유랑화사 (The Wandering Artist)
Author: 정연 (Jungyun)
Artist: R. Alnilam
Publisher: Novel Engine POP


Pre-Read Thoughts:
...I know I said I won't include Novel Engine POP because the publisher wanted to consider this brand as books for any ages (as opposed to standard light novels, which mostly target teenagers). But, hey, I guess the format is 100% identical to light novels, anyway. Title: 신이 사라진 세계의 제멋대로 마왕님! 4 (The Unruly Demon Lord in a World Without God Vol. 4)
Author: MOS
Artist: 해인
Publisher: Extreme Novel

The demon lord protagonist gives into his underlings' request that he turn his house into a themed cafe. In the mean time, he finds out that one of the heroines holds the secret as to why demons and angels are coexisting in that world.

Pre-Read Thoughts:
Why do they keep showing off every single illustration from the book in the teaser ad? That can't be good for sales...



  1. Thanks for the updates and for the release news.

  2. Title: 몇 살이 좋아? (How Old Would You Like Me?) lets create a poll on this a supernatual harem or a typical harem?

  3. The Unruly Demon Lord In The World Without God vol 3? I thought it is vol 4?

  4. >Does it qualify as a harem of all three girls are actually the same girl?

    Only if you answer the same for "Does it counts as NTR if the stealer is the same person"

    1. What if the future-you is stealing away your girlfriend?

    2. you forgot to mention the past you XD

      But moving on, that would mean that in the future (based on the supposed laws of time) you would steal your past girlfriend (making her your current). So in the end, she'll still be your girlfriend even if your future self steals her, but you would have to wait until the future to steal her away from your past self. If your past self stole your girlfriend from you, that's another story. That would mean that the current girlfriend was stolen from the future and lost again to the past, resulting in an infinite loop, ending in your losing your girlfriend.

      To recap: future self stealing lets you keep your girlfriend (you just have to wait), past self stealing and you lose your girlfriend.
      Well, that's just in theory. Reality can always suprise you...
