    Default Light Novel Licensing List for Catching Up

    Considering this is a Sega crossover game about a licensed brand you may or may not be familiar with all the characters, I put a quick reference for the light novels involved and the companies that publish it in North America.
    Anime licensed likely on Crunchy Roll to stream episodes. It is easier to watch the Aniplex ones this way because their DVD/Blu Ray pricing is expensive.

    If something is unlicensed, you could find translations online. I am not linking them here. Light novels have been gaining more traction lately thanks to Yes Press' efforts, I can see them officially translated in the future.

    I had no idea light novels were published in the west, I may have to check if anyone is releasing them in Europe. I'd certainly like to read the rest of the story in "Irregular at Magic Highschool" and some others.
    NISA does what sega don't.
