Anime News Network: "Vertical to Release Audio Light Novels in Spring 2016"

"North American publisher Vertical announced at New York Comic Con (NYCC) on Friday that it will begin releasing audio light novels in spring 2016. The new digital media format will include voice acting, music, and sound effects."

 

Something to look forward to? It depends a lot on the quality of the voice actors and translations. From the sounds of things, they might end up being more like audio dramas than audiobooks.

 

I admit, if their voice actors include some of my favorites from anime TV series English dubs, there will be much excited flailing on my part.
