Seven Seas Entertainment has picked up a new light novel series that’s very recent with the acquisition of The Invincible Shovelby Tsuchise Yasohachi and Yuuki Hagure. The light novel series is also known as Scoop Musou in Japan and began in January 2019 from MF Bunko J. It has three volumes out so far in Japan.
Seven Seas will publish the light novel series for the first time in North America in print and (early) on digital platforms in single volume editions. The first print volume will be released on May 19, 2020 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN.
Plot Concept: Alan is the strongest miner in the world, able to reduce mountains to rubble with simply a swing of his trusty shovel. But when Princess Letitia begs him to escort her on a quest to save her kingdom from an invading demon force, he agrees to leave his solitary mountain abode and venture forth, on one condition: she must help him find a successor to train. In this hilarious fantasy tale for fans of RPGs, evil doesn’t stand a chance against the mighty power of the shovel!
