Before I list out some buy links, Cobalt’s editorial department has made the first 100 pages of the first volume free to sample!

All 32 volumes (short story compilations included!) of the series are now on ebook form, with the exception of the fanbook with the title, 紳士淑女のための愛好者読本.

Take note that the afterword from the author will not be included in the digital release.

It’s also available on Kindle and would recommend it for the dictionary function, especially if Japanese isn’t your first language!

All buy links are for ebooks only.


Amazon Japan – the entire series



Rakuten Japan’s Kobo – all light novels and manga adaptation by Ayuko included

Reader Store (Sony Japan)

Lastly, check out this promotional site by Cobalt for the release of their ebook titles. There is a directory for each title of the light novels they have published.

    1. It will be my pleasure!! Thank you for being so kind to ask, Eumimi! (⋈◍>◡<◍)。✧♡

  1. Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I’ve wanted to read Hakushaku to Yousei for the longest of time but I gave up on the thought when it wasn’t available to get.

    1. You’re very welcome, Anny! Same goes for the rest of us! 30+ volumes are not easy to ship even if I’m in the SEA region D: (I have been quite motivated to figuratively, spam Kindle release requests for HakuYou titles LOL and sure many fans feel the same. Now if only the same happens to Saiunkoku Monogatari… (∀`*ゞ))

  2. Reblogged this on Bishie Holic and commented:
    This is, like, the best news of 2019.

    One of the main reasons why I started to learn Japanese was because of Hakushaku to Yousei (HakuYou). I loved Edgar and Lydia’s relationship and the anime could only give me so much. Don’t even mention the manga because it didn’t go further in their story.

    Unlike these days, the translation of the series was few and far in between back then. It frustrated me to no end.

    So when I got into ebooks years later, the first thing that I did was to search for HakuYou. To my dismay, it wasn’t available for digital reading! Who knows how much I spammed the “request for title” button on both Rakuten Kobo and Amazon JP sites lol.

    But now, we can finally read this amazing book in the digital format! Check out Amayan’s post where she also includes the sites where you can buy this series.
