Afaik there isnt too much difference between the Manga and LN.

There may be some details changed however. LN to manga typically seems to be like another refinement.

The light novel is currently Sold on yen press. Granted only i think up to novel 2 is in english.

Everything else is on the seven seas.

I've only ready Vol. 1 of the LN. but it at least goes into far more detail than even the anime did.

Right as far as reading the story goes, the anime has ACTUAL when past the light novel material (as far as I know).
I think the latest novel is going to cover the last few episodes of the anime and what happens afterwards.

Re: Zero was original a web novel published by the author and has gotten to I think 6 Arcs so far. So the only way to read what happens after the anime is to either go online and find the web novel and know how to read Japanese.

Otherwise, I think Yen Press, is working on releasing the first light novel and I think there might be some groups that are working on translating the web novel, but I'm not sure though because of Yen Press licensing the light novel.

I think the mangas are also not as far as the anime yet, so you probably won't find any until they catch up.

Yen Press is releasing the light novel and I recommend that you buy those when they become available. Google translation chicken, they're translating the web novel from the point where the anime ends
