Push Publication has launched a Kickstarter campaign for an original English adult light novel titled When Days Rewind.
The campaign, which is looking to fund the first volume of the series, has already reached its initial goal of $5,186, having currently garnered $6,062 as of this article’s writing.With the project having reached its funding goal for the first volume, the campaign’s next step is to hit its stretch goals, which includes a special chapter with illustrations that involve Ms. Senji and the school’s boys, a 10 page one-shot adult doujin involving Yurika, Sachi, and a group of gangsters from their school, and an additional five illustrations involving all three female characters chained up in public.
For those of you unfamiliar with light novels, they are essentially a hybrid of sorts between a manga and a traditional novel. While they are mostly comprised of actual text, much like a book, what sets them apart from a traditional novel is the fact that light novels contain anime and manga-style illustrations to go along with the text. Having started in the 1970’s as an evolution from pulp magazines, light novels have gone on to spawn several games, anime, and manga, including well-known titles such as Record of Lodoss War, The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Slayers, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Boogiepop Phantom.
While there have been a few light novels from popular series translated into English, When Days Rewind is an original English light novel creation, making it a pretty unique project. While English original visual novel’s have begun to grow and thrive in the Western hemisphere, English light novels is one area that has quite a lot of potential for bringing forth more lewd material, but has yet to really break out into the market.
For your reading pleasure, you will find a synopsis and sample images just below.
