Hello Light Novel Podcast listeners! Several months ago, we asked you what series we should do a follow-up episode to. It’s taken us a while, but we’re here with the first one, Infinite Dendrogram! This J-Novel Club series is a really strong entry into the whole VRMMO Light Novel scene. We’re discussing volumes 4 to 7. Volumes 4 and 5 were part of the recent anime adaptation, whereas volumes 6 and 7 start taking us beyond that material and building more of the world as well as introducing us to some new characters.
