Namco Bandai Launches New Site

Namco Bandai have today launched a new site to promote a light novel that is receiving a PSP game conversion. “I Don’t Have Many Friends” or “Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai” is a light novel series in Japan that is very popular with younger readers. A light novel is a condensed version of a manga with less pages and normally with lighter content.

Kodaka Hasegawa is a student attending the St. Chronica Academy where he meets Yozora Mikazuki and together they form the “Neighbors’ Club”. The club’s purpose is to help other find friends, they both meet strange and different people in their quest.

“Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Portable” is the name of the PSP version which doesn’t have an official release date yet but there will be a trailer on the site on the 19th of August. Once it’s out there, I’ll make sure to put it here 🙂
