@piisfun I can relate in terms of my experience with my own super limited shelf space and trying to fit my novels without damage. Granted I only have a light novel section with nothing but else to worry about 😂
But in a less joking note, I appreciate that insight it does validate the concern I brought up so I'm glad I wasn't just entirely talking out of my ass.
I feel like we always end up having fun discussions in the threads we both talk in 😁 have a great night!

@zing Sam already mentioned that it seems like Overlap will publish the after-stories. Kind of a no-brainer since Arifureta is probably their best selling series. I switched to waiting for an official release a long time ago back when Endo was fan-translating the series. (He ended up dropping it and the rest of the chapters were machine translated summaries.) Since then, I just don't touch WN translations~
Back on topic though, there is so much Arifureta content a year I doubt it'll be too long of a wait.

The Mascot Killer
From the subtitle of volume 1, I expected that the outside world would be trivial to Hajime and the girls. The conflict wasn't so much about whether or not he could win against those monsters in this volume, but Hajime's teetering humanity. He's really not that far from becoming a monster in body and soul.
I also agree that Shea and Tio are more annoying than anything else, but I'm getting the impression that each girl is going to do something to restore Hajime's humanity. I think the problem is that the author isn't executing it well. He's trying to be funny, but I don't think we share the same sense of humor.
