For sure it won't finish in the last part with everything which started in this volume. As it had been speculated already I think it will stop right at the begining of the summoning ritual of the Black Wolf or right after. It might throw a bit of spice for the next volume with a few more actions from the secondary characters.
@someoldguy Oh I dunno about foreshadowing only about part 10 or even volume 10. In my oppinion, a totally biased one cause I love this series, I think(hope) this is foreshadowing for at least a few volumes.
@Paul-Nebeling I totally agree about the shades being needed.
My bet would of course, on Nalfa, since I think Koutarou thinks of Kin-chan as younger sister only. And he definitely won't allow himself to half assed his best friend's younger sister's feelings. Mackenji might green light their relationship, but only if Koutarou gonna go all out.
In short, it's gonna be accumulated feelings of 9 girls who give final push to Koutarou. But I still couldn't see someone as serious as him gonna date with all of them easily. In any alternate timeline, it seems he can date with one girl just fine after 1 year and a bit like in Shiori case. So it's not about dense as brick case, but the common sense as Earthling case.
This was actually quite fun despite the harem and SAO references so I'm glad I gave it chance. It remained relatively concise and focused throughout all six volumes and even has a solid end, which is a real rarity for this genre (as far as I know).
@jon-mitchell we've had some discussions about this, but it is (imo) highly unlikely that it is a known remedy (though it is hinted to be a possible remedy). In the first place, in order for it to be known as being able to alleviate the symptoms then someone with the devouring has to make it to the forest, in the right season, to chance upon a Trombe seed. Usually a commoner kid with the devouring will end up bed ridden until they die - kinda like Myne was before Urano - unless they have some serious funds and ties to nobles for the requisite magic tool, which would mean they have no reason to head to the forest in the first place. This could be a real breakthrough in the cultivation of Trombe however if they make the connection that it's (and again, this is an assumption) a mana devouring plant - and this would happen only if Lutz (or Myne if she ever sees how a Trombe usually grows and the results of its growth) will connect the dots and see that the Trombe that grew after Myne uncovered its seed didn't leave such devastating side effects (plus grew a lot quicker) - or at least I remember this being said in passing in the book.
@fossyo I hope not. I haven't read beyond the currently published part yet, so my intention has been to remain safely within the realm of general observations. I'll go ahead and delete my comment in case I've inadvertently said something more than I thought.

@terabyte Walking through the walls would be rather funny... but probably halls.
Whops, I was thinking halls but, no idea why, I wrote walls... 😱
Fixed my post above. 😅
So it's a treasure hunt this time around, and it looks like the chapter will still continue in the next part.
I'm actually surprised Kaoru hasn't blown her cover and fled the city yet. I bet something is gonna happen soon for sure though. 😏
Volume 3 - Part 7:
[13%] We didn’t bother preparing one or looking for fiacre. ► It should be a fiacre?
[53%] ‘Hurry up and go home, you’re staying too long!’“ ► The dialogue's closing double quote is wrongly a starting one.
[54%] He did pay me a excursion service fee after all... ► It should be an excursion.
I have to say...wow, little Latina really has become stacked...
And it looks like being a demon improved Dale's shamelessness, given how he was to be so lovey dovey with his new wife and not be embarassed even after people point that out.
@tusf said in Infinite Dendrogram Volume 9 Discussion!:
but I guess there's something someone missed in this case…?
It was stated recently that it is difficult to license a new volume of any LN series for the first 2 weeks of release.
So if they start the process after 2 weeks, they need time for the contracts to go through the whole rigmarole before the contracts are signed, then they still need to wait for Japan to send the files over(which does take a while), then it has to start being translated.
So I don’t believe anything here was “missed”, this is just part of the whole process.
