Happy New Year to those that are already in 2022! To the rest of us still stuck in 2021, enjoy the last few hours of 2021. Anyways I figured I would post something for the end of the year. Wishing health and success to everyone and their families in 2022.
Kadokawa is having a sale of the Ebooks for LN’s 1-12, Light, and Sweet to commemorate the end of the series. You can pick everything up for dirt cheap. Good opportunity for those looking to collect all the volumes or support the series.
Ookuma blessed us with wedding illustrations for everyone. For those interest in pre-ordering the ebook from bookwalker, here’s the link.
Sneaker Bunko was kind enough to summarize all the store benefits for volume 13. Ookuma has gone on the record and said, all of the illustrations that are being used as store benefits will also be included in the novel. Therefore you don’t have to feel the need to buy everything if it’s too expensive for you. So far, this is shaping up to be a great ending for the series.
Amazon finally updated their product page with the cover of volume 13 and they also included this sleeve with the announcement that the series has reached 3.2 million copies in print circulation! This 3.2 million doesn’t include a restock of volume 12. To this day, you can’t buy a physical copy of volume 12 from a store. It has to be done second hand. So that 3.2 million would probably be higher if they gave volume 12 a restock.
Anyways it’s a great time to be a fan of shinmai and it’s nice to see the series being celebrated in the lead up to the conclusion of the series.
Congrats to Uesu, Ookuma, and Shinmai on winning 1st place in the category of “Alluring Immorality” at Kadokawa’s LN Expo 2020. Considering the series was on a 3 year hiatus and doesn’t have the luxury of an author that uses twitter, a currently airing anime, or new LN in the pipeline (volume 13 wasn’t announced during the time of voting) to help build the hype, I’ll take this as a nice victory. It serves as a testament to the strength of the fanbase and the love we have for the series. So kudos to everyone that voted and continues to support the series!
Below you’ll find screenshots from the event and a message from Uesu talking about winning 1st place. I guess we can say our initial mission was successful we pulled Uesu out of hibernation and ended up getting volume 13. The stars really seemed to align for us Shinmai fans.
For those that want to watch the event for themselves, I’ve included the link. I’m not sure how long it’s going to be available, but if you want to know where the Shinmai part is start at 8:51:09.
Here is the conclusion for the ultimate ecstasy battle action!!
