I'm not criticizing, the main arc is complete (Latina growing up, through Dale getting justice regarding her parents' deaths, Dale's and Latina's love blossoming, Dale making the world safe by defeating the demon lords, peace becoming possible and the reunion of Chryssos and Latina. ) All that's left is the wedding and "they lived happily ever after" The entirety of volume 8 is tying up looses ends, and (if one can judge by the cover) Dale's and Latina's wedding. And I think that is a good thing. All too often a series ends without resolving issues/plot points. As if the author is more concerned with setting up a possible sequel than bringing the current series to a satisfying conclusion. This might be a cultural difference thing, I want: a beginning/world-building, middle/development, climax, ending/resolution. All to often I'm left hanging. For my Daughter is doing it right

For JNC Premium Editions you will know it is released when it is updated in the “Latest ebooks” carousel:
Not sure this info helps if it only works like 80% of time. (inb4 muh 24h rule)
Edit: it's up now. Premium extra is is "Bonus Pinups": volume's two color illustrations in higher resolution.

So seems to be anime is ready for the fall season this year.
It just means first episode is ready for fall season. Some series had first episodes initially released as OVAs bundled with adaptation source.
That certainly doesn't mean the whole cour would be ready for fall. Märchen Mädchen, never forget.
@heavyisspy Yeah, I've been waiting for other goddesses to bust her and start handing out blessings to get tributes too. It'd be good if some gods are in on it as well, and not just one token fat arse bloke that eats too much (Realist Hero's Poncho after ascending to godhood, lol)
this series feel more and more disappointing . I skipped entires wall of bullshit text about the side character we don't even give a shit about . the authors waste too many pages talking about the characters nevrosis . I get it this is parano and all but damn it was already aggravating in previous vol but the shit got intensified in this two volumes arc .
There are harems and harems... I get the vibe that Marie draws lots of attention in Japan and maybe we were going down the path that Marie builds a harem in japan while the (other?) MC ends up building one in the fantasy realm. The relationship with the librarian and now with the dragon... but the more I think about it I don’t think this story will go there. They both will make friends with lots of people. So far with other ”married couples “. The dynamic of juggling time with friends and your significant other and respective jobs and what not maybe interesting
Part 2 20%
"Right when Emile recieved his payment for the herbs and food ingredients he had collect, "it" had appeared..."
--change "collect" to "collected" and delete the 2nd "had"
Part 2 80%
The price given here for the curing medicine does not match the prices given in part 1. In part 1, it is 3 small gold coins for the curing medicine and 3 small silvers for the symptom relief one.
@fossyo Thanks, will take a look at these shortly. First one I'll pass on to the translator to decide. I think its a perfectly cromulent phrasing as-is, but I'll see what he thinks. Second is clearly an error and I'll get on it soon.
@myskaros found that out at different thread right after I posted, so replaced message with something else, didn't want to leave a deleted message message. it takes several minutes for update, but thanks for the response,
Another one? That's three now, and only one of Maria.
I suppose it makes sense if Dark Magic can be obtained via a ritual, while Light Magic is apparently like the other elements where you have your aptitude decided from birth. Which does also explain why Larna/Susanna is so worried about classified information being leaked; if the secret of the Dark Magic ritual becomes public knowledge, that makes it a tempting offer for the especially unscrupulous.
@jon-mitchell said in Seriously Seeking Sister (aka Yuri Vampire) Discussion!:
regardless - I see some similarities: tenaciousness, a over-developed sense of justice
Yes, that, and an abundance of misunderstanding to go with it too. Or should I call it naiveness?
If anything Keima is just being a dumbass due to being too lazy to do something about public services and taxes and stuff. Frankly him summoning intelligent monsters to leave more of the administration to them should have happened a few books ago but I guess the author just wants to avoid making work for himself by actually thinking about the world he himself is creating lol. It's a common problem in tons of web novels.
I was thinking along similar lines: what would be game changers? and fit in the backpacks
communication/long distance - either (and?) shortwave 2-way
binoculars + semaphore flags? (no batteries required flags could be made, but bring materials to devise code)
night vision goggles
