J-Novel Club Adds "Infinite Stratos" and "The Unwanted Undead Adventurer" Light Novels

Both series are now available to read, with E-Books to come


Light novel publisher J-Novel Club announced the addition of two more titles to their lineup today. The latest series members can check out include Infinite Stratos and The Unwanted Undead Adventurer, both of which are now available. 


The first half of Infinite Stratos volume 1 is live along with a free preview, and the E-Book for the first volume will go on sale in late April. Here's how they describe it:

In a world of technological progress, females are the only ones who can pilot the most advanced military unit in history—the Infinite Stratos (IS). With this power, women have seized complete control of all political, social, and economic ventures; leaving men to the fringes of society, made to tend to the whims of their now, female overlords. That is until Orimura Ichika, the sole male found to have IS piloting ability, is thrust into the spotlight, and enrolled at the prestigious IS Academy. Stuck in the middle of a female-dominated population, Ichika sets out to prove men still have a place in this world. Little did he know, he's just the thing these women have been looking for.


The same availability applies to The Unwanted Undead Adventurer, which is the localized English title for new series Nozomanu Fushi no Boukensha. There are currently two volumes of Yu Okano's series—which features illustrations by Jaian—and OVERLAP's Comic Gardo online magazine will soon be serializing the manga adaptation.

Rentt Faina, a twenty-five-year-old adventurer, has been hacking away at monsters for a decade. However, without much talent for the job, Rentt finds himself stuck hunting Slimes and Goblins for meager amounts of coin every day. Little does he know, all this is about to change when he comes across a seemingly undiscovered path in the Labyrinth of the Moon's Reflection. 


What awaits him at the end of the path, however, is neither treasure nor riches, but a legendary dragon that wastes no time swallowing him whole! Waking up a short time later, Rentt finds himself not quite dead, but not very alive either— He is nothing more than a pile of bones! Armed with nothing but his trusty sword, tool belt, and ghoulish new looks, Rentt sets off on his quest as a newly reborn Skeleton to achieve Existential Evolution, hoping to one day return to civilization with a more human form. 


Will Rentt succeed, or will the labyrinth consume him for the rest of his un-death...?
