English and Japanese Light Novel Releases for Week Commencing 2nd March 2015

EDIT: Fixed the date in the title. Sorry!

I added a handful of series to MAL’s database so that they would have translated titles this week. I don’t see that being a regular occurrance, but it should increase the ability of others to add female-oriented titles on there, which are hugely underrepresented at present.
