  1. Hey! I’ve seen that you left the translator’s place blank, so I checked my copy and it says that it was translated by Andrew Gaippe.

    • Thanks, Reka! I’ve added it now.
      Translator is always the hardest piece of information to find online for these entries; I often have to either get the book myself or ask around on web forums. I like to keep track of who translates what books, though.

  2. I’m actually picking this up tomorrow, let me know when you read it so I have someone to talk to about it.

    • Hope you enjoy the story! If you’re interested in finding discussions for the book online, you might find an audience at forums such as the Light Novels subreddit, and sites like MyAnimeList. That said, feel free to comment here as well when you get the chance!

  3. Just wondering if the english translations are identical to the original japanese novels or if parts of cut out for censorship purposes?

    • What do you mean by special editions? I tried searching online but didn’t find anything about a special edition for this series.

  5. I really hope they keep translating this series I don’t get it why it is not continued to get aired everyone knows about it and also have somewhat of a sweet tooth for it .anyone whom I talk about anime and Manga , they know of this series and much more like it it’s a shame that anime stopped airing and Manga is going so slow…
