Any News or updates regarding The Magic in this Other World is Too Far Behind Light Novel Volume 10's Release Date
The title says it all, is there any news or updates or literally any scraps of new information regarding The Magic in this Other World is Too Far Behind Light Novel Volume 10's Release Date or if the author has dropped the series entirely and is never going to release more volumes that continue the narrative of what happens after volume 9?
Thx everyone, have a good rest of your day, and stay safe.
Well, according to The Site That Shall Not Be Linked, it's had 9 LN volumes in Japan and a status of Hiatus, and 176 WN chapters and a status of Discontinued...
MAL has 2, I repeat two discussion topics total for this series, neither of which is of any use to this question.
Overlap Series Page is unusually uninformative...but only shows 9 volumes.
Author's Twitter; not reading Japanese, and not feeling like going through it with MTL just now, but this could be of some use. Maybe.
Unless something encouraging shows up somewhere recent in the Author's Twitter, I'd call it dead.
@leg3ndarygamer7 Considering Overlap basically stalled releasing volume 9 for a full year after it was finished, it doesn't seem like the author's motivation survived after that. I'd recommend giving up.
@leg3ndarygamer7 It was just short of 2 years ago volume 9 released in Japan, and the author is currently busy with another novel(also published by j-novel, The Magician Who Rose From Failure, volume 4 published in Japan last May), so the odds are not exactly high.
Too unfortunate, I quite liked it, and the end of volume 9 is quite the abrupt non-ending to the story, like reverse media res...
On that note, I fear Skeleton Knight in Another World is going to suffer the exact same fate, sigh...
Yeah I'm getting used to series that'll never finish... Though that's not unique to Light Novels alas... (Looking at you George!)
Sadly it didn't end at a good point to stop though... Reminds me of Black Bullet in that regard... Or PLIC...
Still we can always imagine the endings in our hearts...
@shipteaser thhere's probably fanfiction out there somewhere with proposed endings to it by now.
From what I remember from a Twitter post, volume 9 destroyed the authors mojo due to behind the scenes shenanigans and volume 10 was not even in draft format (which is never good). All the excess ideas were thereafter placed onto another series which they are currently devoted to. So I could see volume 10 being a few years down the line before the spark is reignited.
Is the series dead? I would say no, it's definitely not flatlined like Infinite Stratos
@custodes I would say it's joined Occultic;nine, Clockwork Planet, Infinite Stratos, and The Faraway Paladin as series that will never be finished. As abrupt as the ending was, Bluesteel Blasphemer at least got an ending.
@paul-nebeling well Faraway Paladin is getting another volume though, the author said on Twitter that they had started writing it. When they finish it and it arrives at JNC is another matter...
@lily-garden That's good news, sort of. That is too good of a story to leave hanging forever.
