J-Novel Club’s Light Novels And Manga REMOVED And Censored By Amazon

diablo shocked face how not to summon a demon lord

J-Novel Club, a publisher based out of Tokyo, Japan, shares and publishes:

  • Light Novels
  • Manga

… For sale online.

One of the platforms it uses is Amazon for distribution and sales.

For no apparent reason, Amazon Kindle specifically removed:

  • How Not To Summon A Demon Lord.
  • Clockwork Planet.
  • The Greatest Magicmasters Retirement Plan.
  • I Shall Survive Using Potions!

And presumably more light novels and manga.

And if not, more will end up being removed and censored.

These light novels and manga were NOT removed from the Japanese version of Amazon. Proving that it’s being targeted in the west.

 

Why the removal from Amazon Kindle?

Censorship is nothing new in the anime and manga industries. I’ve talked about it before.

In the USA more than most countries, anime, light novels and manga are targeted for their content.

If any of the 3 aren’t:

  • Politically correct
  • Watered down
  • Sugar coated
  • Lightweight

Then AMERICAN companies are quick to censor, or even flat out remove content from their platforms.

The same thing happened with YouTube when they removed Ishuzoku Reviewers from Kadokawa’s channel.

And now Amazon kindle is doing the same.

In fact they did a similarthing a year or so ago when they removed a bunch of anime figurines from their site.

So this is just another “clean up” of any content in the anime and manga industries they see as too politically incorrect.

Content they don’t agree with or dislike the idea of, possibly.

 

Amazon hasn’t said a word about WHY

amazon uk sorry page

This is what happens when I tested it. A similar page to the US version.

Strangely one of the light novels show up in the UK, but it’s hard to say whether this is a “cached” version of the page and it’s scheduled to be deleted or not.

One thing’s for sure: anything directly from the publisher: J-Novel’s Club has disappeared.

Well, is funny when people talks about freedom of speech and so, but when books are being censor or banned no one protest. Now is lite novels and manga, but who knows what will be next. There are some options still, Kobo still selling those books or you can go directly to J-Novel club and buy them directly from them.
