This time, I’ll be talking about the winning works of 30th Fantasia Grand Prize, an annual light novel award held by light novel publisher Fujimi Shobo. These new works will be published under Fantasia Bunko label on January 20, 2018. A special campaign has also been updated on the official website, in which the heroines from each of the works are voiced by four popular voice actresses.

Mahou Shoujo no Scoutman is a light novel penned by Ibukiyo Amou (Astronauts wa Mahou wo Tsukau, Hakugai Fukutsu no Blade Maker) and illustrated by Katoroku (@kato_roku). Published by Dengeki Bunko, this light novel was released on December 9, 2017.

Two years since its first volume was published, Ryuuou no Oshigoto! (The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!) has managed to hit the first place in Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! twice in a row, achieve one million overall sales, and secure an anime adaptation which will be coming up soon. All these achievements are nothing short of impressive for a series that doesn’t play by the book—amidst the industry where stories about reincarnation, life in another world, or edgy antisocial protagonists who double as a sorry excuse for the readers’ self-insert material dominate the market, Ryuuou no Oshigoto! shows us the possibility of having a light novel about a board game coming up on top.
With the anime airing on January 9, I reckon it’s about the perfect time to look back on what the series has gone through so far. Spoilers are obviously ahead, though I figured that most of you are here for them anyway. Anyway, you can join the Discord server here.
