    I didn't think I would like a series this much, it pains me to see the fan translation being dropped in the middle of volume 14. Hope JNC to get the licence, or anyone else...

    @Kiritsuna Actually, the translation has been picked up by another group, they're continuing straight where the previous left/dropped it, v14ch3.
    I'm not going to name them here, but shouldn't be too hard to find. They have a bunch of other active projects and Vanadis has been on their minds ever since the previous one put it on hiatus, so the work should be pretty stable going forward...

    @Korppi Hopefully not the ones who also picked it up 2 years ago till Setsuna restarted his translation. Although a bad translation is better as not translation but it was kinda awkward to read it. Although I don't recall exactly what part was especially strange but I still didn't like it.

    Sign me up for this as well. I liked the anime, if the light novels are even better as people seem to think that's all the more reason to pick them all up. Perhaps JNC should consider pooling the customers willing to buy a whole series up front as a way to kickstart going after a license. I'd be interested to know how many it would take to make it viable.

    I would have a little more hope now about this series being picked up by someone after seeing old series such as Dxd and DaL being taken by Yen Press and this series has just had a spin off staeted in the last few years so is still active. But does it have the same fan base as those two? Probably not, but it is a series with a happy end which I would love to read fully. I have the series only up to 15 in Japanese so I would be happy to fi ish the collection twice in both languages
