Light Novels Go Full Meta in "Bishojo sakka to Mesazu Million selleraaaaaaaa!!" Audio Drama

Kadokawa is celebrating the upcoming release of Bishojo sakka to Mesazu Million selleraaaaaaaa!! ("The Pretty Girl Author Aims at Being a Million Seller!!"), a new light novel series written by Takeru Kasukabe and illustrated by Mika Pikazo about a precocious light novel author and her harried editor, with the release of an audio drama series on Youtube.



The story of Bishojo sakka to Mesazu Million selleraaaaaaaa!! follows Kiyozumi Kurokawa, a novice editor who is assigned to the editorial department of S ("Sandal") Bunko, which publishes light novels. Kiyozumi is determined to publish a million-selling hit series, but this task is easier said than done when his writers include a genius high school girl and an office lady whose last two series tanked.



The cast for the Bishojo sakka to Mesazu Million selleraaaaaaaa!! audio drama includes:


  • Takuya Eguchi as Kiyozumi Kurokawa, S Bunko's hot new editor who wants to publish works that sell well.
  • Kana Asumi as Tenka Mitsuboshi, a brilliant high school girl author who debuted in middle school with the "Gardenia Senki" series. Unlike the rough and rowdy style of her established works, Tenka wants her next series to be a romantic comedy, but she's terrible at writing in this style.
  • And Aimi Tanaka as Hiyoko Ondori, an office lady who works as an author on the side. Hiyoko won a newcomer prize with her debut, but her last two series were cancelled for poor sales and she's in a complete slump as a writer.



A new chapter for the  Bishojo sakka to Mesazu Million selleraaaaaaaa!! audio drama will be published to Youtube each day until July 01, 2017, when the first volume of the light novel series is released. The final chapter of the audio drama will be available for download via a QR code included with the printed book.


The first volume of Bishojo sakka to Mesazu Million selleraaaaaaaa!! will be published by Kadokawa under their Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint on July 01, 2017. The book retails for 600 yen ($5.35 US) plus tax.
