Kadokawa. It's always been Kadokawa for print media.

And of course, I'm in.

P.S.- it's good to have a real keyboard again. ;)

Oh yeah, that's right... and I was just talking about this recently.  Gonna edit the post shortly.  But yes, this is EXACTLY why AIC needs to just sell everything Tenchi to Kadokawa and get it over with.  Kadokawa has shown that they are willing to license their stuff here (A bunch of their stuff outside of Tenchi such as Kemono Friends and Kantai Collection got licensed, and heck, at least Kancolle even got an English dub).  Further proof that AIC is mishandling things right now (STILL no OVA 4 license and the fact that they legit fed the Pretty Sammy sequel kickstarter to the big bad wolf known as the Megazone 23 kickstarter), plain and simple.

P.S. - Awesome stuff man.  Yes, touchscreen keyboards can be a royal pain in the rear end.

Holy Shit! I mean damn, I'm literally trying not to freak out right now. Ten years nothing, then BAM! Ova 4, Ova 5 announced, and now this. I could not possibly be anymore shocked. Thank you Kodakawa  :bravo:

I will definitely buy all 3 novels when they come out. If only my friends and family were anime fans...

i am pretty concerned though about this... I really hope they don't try to work around the potentially" problematic" non PC parts of the tenchi novels and ruin it. I mean u got a story about a 20 something dude marrying a teen girl and wishing her off to neglect her as his space bride... u got a novel that starts with awkward morning boners from stepmom. ryoko doing drugs masturbating and having sex...  oh and a novel about wasuu going to space college and discovering she likes pussy expcialy old lady pussy... and and then finding out she likes dick to but not really since she does the single most lesbian thing ever and moves on to a farm with her twonlesbian lovers and her husband... also the subject of being able to switch dingdongs and hoohas at will  cause future trchnology...comes up. there's so much I could see them fucking up just for the sake of sparing the decency of an American audiance from harm.

I am surprised to learn that the True Tenchi Novels are being license by Seven Seas.  Now I am curious about the GXP novels.  To me, the GXP novels are a way to help the Tenchi Muyo- Ryo-Ohki Canon.

As an aside, in Japan, the True Tenchi Muyo! novels are out of print. You can only buy them on Kindle because apparently Kadokawa doesn't feel the need to print them any more.

Yeah, ya got a point there. I mean these stories have been translated to hell and back, so if they do fuck with them in that way we're not completely SOL.

believe me when i say this for us tenchi otaku it wont but for less intense fans it will. they will never read through my translations even now they expecialy wont if there is an official one. i mean why would they need to unless they enjoy my commentary?

if they censor washu then good luck to literally any of tenchi or gxp ever making any sense ever to them...
shit everyone though that clay was just kicked out cause they showed like porn or something at his award ceremony before i looked it over.

he got kicked out eventually for basically doing the naked man move on a girl he was supposed to be showing around campus and trying to get him to have sex with her on tape.... and the octopus nickname is because they have a creature on the academy like a nautilas that exclusivly reproduces through deception and force... and the guy went and crafted his whole image over that nickname.

and well theres all sorts of other stuff like that in the books that i worry they might dodge around.... hell that scene where she basicly agrees to learn to muff dive in exchange for getting the old lady's observatory is so super subtle that even if they weren't intending to its easy to mistranslate and if you do it comes off as very awkward and clunky. actualy the entire washu novel was hard... its filled with slang and subtext....

plus you have things like washu's planet is kanamitsu and u have kanemitsu the buttler aand in japanise those words are very different but in english its confusing.

and you got things like kusobaba... which is more of a kajishimaism then a word... and you got kajishima randomly breaking the naritive of the firstbook to explain his world....

So like Kevin Spacey?

I'm not familiar with the company that's doing this but have they been known on record to rewrite/redact certain parts of a book over fuck scenes like this?

Looking through some of the other titles they carry. They are okay with Mature content. Some of which is explicitly tagged as mature.

Here's to hoping!

Nice. Hopefully it sells good, so they license the GXP novels and talk Kajishima into licensing some of his doujinshi. Which could be a real possibility, given that Seven Seas previously released doujinshi for Dance of the Vampire Bund. Which by the way, if they have no problem releasing DotVB uncensored, I don't see why anyone would think they'd butcher Kajishima's novels.

The first volume is up for pre-order on amazon.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/162692614X/

Sevens Seas currently has the release dates for volumes 2 and 3 set for September 18 and December 18.

As an aside, in Japan, the True Tenchi Muyo! novels are out of print. You can only buy them on Kindle because apparently Kadokawa doesn't feel the need to print them any more.
They're nearly 20 years old at this point, so that isn't too surprising.
