Seikai Novels Hitting Shelves

After watching the Seikai series based on Steven's reviews, I started poking around to see what I could find out about the novels the show was based on...

There were a few places working on translations, but trying to read anything longer than a Bill Whittle essay online is like an icepick through the temple. What I did find were rumors that the novels had been licensed for translation.

Turns out it was Tokyopop doing the buying, and the first volume just dropped.

I'm curious to see how they handle translating the Abh language. Will they forge their own path or stick with Bandai's precedent? The fansub of Banner of the Stars 3 didn't make any real attempt to stick with Bandai's prior work (causing a bit of confusion viewing it the first time).

It's been out for over a year, and Bandai doesn't appear to be making a move to license the title.

I hope it doesn't turn out that the only way to get the complete story is through fansubs or waiting for translated novels. That would be less than optimal.
