The latest light novel in the Rascal Does Not Dream series is due out in English next month via Yen Press.

It is the 10th novel in the series, and is called Rascal Does Not Dream of a Lost Singer (aka Seishun Buta Yarō wa Mayoeru Shingā no Yume o Minai  or 青春ブタ野郎は迷えるシンガーの夢を見ない in Japan).

It features adorable cover art of Uzuki Hirokawa, lead singer of the idol group Sweet Bullet, and someone who has appeared in earlier novels in the series.

Rascal Does Not Dream of a Lost Singer follows Sakuta, who is now a university student.

That means the English language versions of the Rascal Does Not Dream series, written by Hajime Kamoshida and illustrated by Keeji Mizoguchi, are now only two volumes behind their Japanese originals.

Yen Press has this to say about the plot of the 10th novel in the series:

Sakuta has now graduated from high school and is enjoying his new and peaceful life as a college student. One day, he bumps into the leader of the idol group Sweet Bullet, Uzuki Hirokawa. But somehow, she feels different from usual. Is the airhead able to read the room now?!

However, no one notices this change besides Sakuta. Has Adolescence Syndrome affected Uzuki as well, or is it something else…? 

Rascal Does Not Dream of a Lost Singer is due out via Yen Press on March 21st in both a trade paperback and digital version.
