No More Twelve Kingdoms

Sadly, The Twelve Kingdoms is a Kodansha title, which I didn’t realize, and Tokyopop has said definitively on facebook that they no longer have the rights to the series. :[ It’s now completely up to Kodansha USA to finish the series, but we’ll see if that happens; they’ve yet to mention any other light novel series.

  1. Sad days D:
    I’m hoping Kodansha is interested in releasing other light novel series (seeing as how they have the stuff Del Rey was releasing too…)

    I wonder what the chances are of finding these online and translated? and do we even know how many 12 kingdoms novels there are in total?

      I’ve heard some of them are translated online, but I’m not sure where. And the number of volumes is a little difficult. Some of the Japanese volumes were combined into one book later (which is what the US got), so we would have gotten 7 volumes total, though really there were 11 original volumes. (see Wikipedia for more info/to make it clearer, they have a really nice chart on the Twelve Kingdoms page that makes it much clearer than the way I described it, haha.)

    Ahh, thanks. I guess I’ll just have to suffer with the couple of books I DO have 😦

    Ugh, I hope someone gets 12K and re-releases the books! Some of the Tokyopop ones are out of print now and are going for $60+ used. I really wanna read the series, but not for THAT much money. Sheesh.
