Just released "Episode 12: Festus" Please check it out!!
After two long years, I've finally published 12 episodes and it couldn't have been done without all of your support! <3 There's a lot more to come but I will be taking a small break to focus on editing the 12 Eps to the point where it feels right. After every couple of edited eps, I will let you all know! Thanks again to everyone old and new, glad you have you on the journey with me!
"Episode 13: Mission A" COMING SOON
@jampodevral said in Why does J novel seem to be losing volumes?:
I have found several series that I did not have time for when they started due to IRL issues, that are now staples of my JNC life.
I've found several series I liked through the prepubs and monthly catch-up, ones that I'd never have bought blind.
I've also saved myself money by reading enough of a volume to discover <Wataru> It's! Just! Not! My! Cup! Of! Tea!!!!!!!!!!!! </Wataru>
Just released Episode 9! Thanks again to everyone and anyone who is still following the story, and to those who are new. Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my work, I really appreciate it truly. <3
Next Episode, "Episode 10: Nu" Look forward to it!! :)
I'd point out that volume 13 only came out two months ago in Japan, and that that post about delays was made only a month ago. It wouldn't be at all surprising to not have volume 13 being translated yet under normal circumstances, let alone with what's going on because of COVID-19. And since there is no release date for volume 14 in Japan yet, even if there is a bit of delay in getting volume 13 in English, it's not slowing down your ability to finish the series. If anything, it's just making the wait for volume 14 shorter. It'll get translated when it gets translated, and it's not like JNC is going to delay it just for the fun of it. Sure, JNC may typically be faster at releasing series than other light novel publishers, but some things still take time.
@thefirstpunicwar Yeah the fights now are are just characters screaming increasingly longuer and cringyer as the series go on.
I was also thinking of at least finishing the series ,since it's one of the first LN I read, but I took a look at what's been released in Japanese and most new volume look like fillers. So I think I will stop at vol 16 for now.
It has unfortunately not been licensed, so there is no official translation. Digging around a bit, it looks like there are fan translations for several of the volumes online, but I don't think that we're allowed to post links to that sort of thing here.
Sorry, my knowledge of history is quite limited. I saw a thread here that was speculating what historical events the author used as inspiration for the book, so you might want to check that out.
