@kuuderes_shadow I think Konosuba is getting delayed, it's down for December on Yen's site and book depository have it as pre-order even with just two days to go, so I think something's up with it. :/

Otherwise I'm importing the first three volumes of Chivalry. Hopefully Sol don't get through these too fast (Ha!), because I'd rather they get distribution outside of America sorted out.

Yes it has been - I even went on their site and saw it under "next month" - but then thought to myself "they obviously haven't changed the month yet" without thinking to check further... My mistake
