OK, the latest book is almost out and so we should talk about the previous ones and what we think of them compared to the manga and anime series. Personally I like the book series so far and am looking forward to the latest book, 古都内乱.

Edit:
Maybe my description was too short. Of the Previous thirteen books, we follow the lives of the Shiba siblings as they deal with school, family issues, and their place in a world where magic is used primarily in lieu of nuclear deterrents. Some people have complained that the anime tends to overly focus on main character, Tatsuya, rather than giving a better view of other likable characters. While this is true in the books, there is also significant development of many other characters, in addition to minute details that help move along the plot.

One thing I think could be noted, as we have already long since passed it in the anime, is that Mikihiko's abilities during the Nine School competition were regained through use of integration of his Old system magic with a semi-modern cad system. While it isn't too pertinent to plot, I would say that the smaller details like this help bring about the story, not to mention it being useful information later if they plan on continuing with the anime adaptation.

So, which are your favourite books, who is your favourite character? What are your projections for the future?




Just an update/reminder : The Yen press publication of Irregular will be coming out sometime, so those who have waited patiently for an English version, hopefully the translation is well done. Doesn't look like they have finalized a cover for it though.

Update: Feb 10 Book out in one month here's the cover



Edit: The third book in the Master Clans Election arc will be out on March 10, description about the USNA interfering in Gu Xi's capture. Then about Tatsuya's rage, considering the final chapter of the last book, MahaShura will be making an appearance.

Edit: 4.28
Looks like there is going to be a book release in May that is about what happened at the 9 schools competition that deals with the events and side characters while Tatsuya was dealing with the parasite-dolls.

Her imminent death, no doubt. Tatsuya will probably have to kill her.

It would seem the next two will involve her behind the scenes and the Yotsuba in general.

Those people are raiding my wallet, somebody tell them to stop rading my wallet damnit. I hope they at least release the arcs in a single volumes instead of spliting it up like the original.

It seems unlikely since others that are similarly broken up (S.A.O.) are kept separate. Sadly, the price is double what you would pay for in Japan. Something also tells me they aren't going to release it at the same high pace that it was in Japan. The first six volumes all came out in within a year.

Dang it, just realised, it will take them at least 5 years to translate to the point where the fan translation was. Argh. Suddenly, I'm not so exited about the official translation anymore...

Well, some very...interesting...to say the least, developments in this one (vol 16).

Fan translation is underway with chapter one done.

Book 17 going to released this summer with the 10 family selection meeting and a reappearance of an American. I do feel sorry for poor Honoka though.

I hope that with book 16 done, a second season for the anime can be made.

Edit: Just thought I'd post this since I found it on the twitter feed.


Edit:
Looks like book 17 comes out 8-8-15. Short descriptions parallels the first part at the end of book 16, except saying that two friends contact with the Shiba siblings changes. Themes of international terrorism and internal/external politics.

Vol 17 summaries, compiled from Jcafe, not very detailed (OnyxObsidian compiled them). Fan translators estimate they'll be done with 15, 16, and 17 by the time 18 is out.
