volume 13 release date

Post by danv »

I thought this might be off topic in the volume 12 discussion thread but does anybody know when the author is releasing volume 13? I went to their website but even with some google translate assistance, I still was unable to figure out when volume 13 will come out.

Only info I've seen so far from Verisimilitude on Animesuki.
If any of you guys have Twitter, I'd strongly suggest that you follow @Dengeki_mahouka. Nice titbits of information from the author and Dengeki. It says that Volume 13 is moving towards an April release so far.

Also, can anyone that reads Japanese translate this please?

The Google translation kinda sucks, so I'd like to get a better interpretation. Is it saying that Vol 14 is going to be set in Kyoto and Nara? If so, that would be great. Both are lovely cities.

April huh. Well its good to know. I will try and be patient. I had gotten used to the faster pace that the baka tsuki tanslators were keeping while catching up with the published versions. Now that we are basically caught up I must adjust my expectations. :(

Well, my Japanese isn't exactly up to snuff, but from what I can tell, the author (of the two sentences) says that Kyoto/Nara is the setting of volume 14, that he/she spent three years in Kobe, but that he/she almost never got over to Kyoto/Nara.

This makes sense in the context of Mahouka, since if I recall correctly the thesis competition bounced back and forth between Kyoto and Yokohama, and if true seems to imply that the upcoming nine schools competition will finish up in only one volume. Or maybe I'm misremembering, and it was the nine schools competition that bounced back and forth? Pretty sure it was the thesis competition, though.

I wonder if it will be possible to have vol5 finished before and maybe the afterwords as well?

Volume 5 isn't finished because it isn't related to the story (afaik) if what I recall from posts from t/l are correct

Re: Volume 5-- Zwabbit is registered for one and last posted in August; Dreyakis registered for the other while he was waiting for Chinese Raws of the main story but may have forgotten that he did so.

Under these circumstances, it would be rude for any other translator to work on the stories until the project supervisor rules that they are taking too long and it is all right for another translator to register and work on completing the translation.

I tried pre-ordering volume 13 today, expecting it to be delivered from at least April 10 (as BT said). Anyway, the kind lady there said the actual release is around the latter half of March. Although I don't know the exact date ('cause, really I was too excited to ask). Will let you guys know when it's out.

I'm not from Japan though, I'm way down. So, the release date here might be behind by a few days with the actual release date in Japan. Which actually isn't really a bad thing.

...But they said there in Kinokuniya (that's the name of the store), it was March. And I even triple checked with them.

Well, either way is fine to me anyway. It's not like I could read the book. I only know a little Japanese so I'm still going to be waiting for a translation at BT.

Edit: Since the store is a really famous one (at least here), they might have inside connections? And I did pre-order it after all so it might mean something. I don't know really. Wish I asked more when I was there >.<
