Vertical Looks for Fan Support for "From the New World" Novel License

4,500 Tumblr reposts would go a long way toward persuading the publisher

Vertical Inc. has already published Yusuke Kishi's novel The Crimson Labyrinth, and they just announced the license for the manga adaptation of his From the New World. So, given that, and given the popularity of From the New World's anime, why have they been relucant to pick up the original FTNW novel and what would it take for fans to sway them?

 

In a Tumblr post, rep Ed Chavez answers:

I am currently in the process of reading it and our Editor-in-Chief who is our novels guru has enjoyed the book. But length of that book, it is three thick thick volumes, makes it a little scary for us as we tend to avoid serialized novel releases (we prefer one-shots).
 

Please purchase Crimson Labyrinth (Mr Kishi’s other novel) or repost/like this post to let him know there is an audience for the title. Ideally we’d need 4.5K to make this work. Oh and one more thing. US, UK and Canada only. We don’t sell novels to the EU.
