Oh! I'd completely missed that Strongest Gamer finally got a volume 2 release date. Better get that pre-ordered.

More looking forward to Abilities Average though. It rounds out my top 3 favourite LNs, although quality tends to vary a lot volume-to-volume. Hopefully this is a good volume.

Seven Seas have licensed:

SCP Foundation: Iris of the Mirror World / Kagami no Kuni no Iris
- Published under Hifumi Books
- A single volume was published in Japan in September last year. It is clearly marked as volume 1 so I would assume the series is ongoing.
- Written by Akira, the author of Kyouran Kazoku Nikki, Sasami-san@Ganbaranai and much much more (indeed Akira is perhaps the single most prolific writer in the industry)
- Uses the setting of the SCP Foundation, with Iris (SCP-105) as the main heroine. You can read up more about the project elsewhere on the internet.
- The Japanese title is a pun on the Japanese title of Through the Looking Glass, which is Kagami no Kuni no Alice
- Volume 1 is scheduled for English release in January 2020

KonoSuba, Reincarnated as as Slime, Killing Slimes, and Devil is a Part-timer for me...

...to add to the other 14 volumes I still haven't caught up on. At least I've been able to prevent the backlog from increasing in size this past month :p

Also, I believe that the first volumes of Saving 80,000 Gold in Another World for my Retirement and Redefining the META at VRMMO Academy are coming out on the 26th. Or at least the digital editions are. Just in case anyone wanted to pick up the third of FUNA's triumvirate.

Indeed it does. I missed it as a result of trying to do it too quickly.
