Unlimited Fafnir:Volume 12 Afterword
Hello, this is Tsukasa.
Thank you, everybody, for buying Unlimited Fafnir XII Darkness Disaster.
The subtitle has a kind of RPG magic feel to it, but the unexpected plot also gives the same impression. By the way, perhaps the magic impression started long ago (sweat drops).
To me, thinking about stuff like subtitles, chapter titles, skill names, or incantations is all part of the creation process of writing a novel. Putting this in better-sounding terms, despite the difficulty, this task is very fun, so I put a lot of effort into it.
It's not uncommon for me to spend as much time on thinking up titles and skill names as it takes to write ten pages of novel text.
In my previous series, my debut work, I had to think up incantations whenever a new type of magic appeared, so it was several times harder than right now.
Still, in another sense, this volume was very difficult.
After all, the plot involved "fleet battles" (though strictly speaking, it was not a fleet). To me, this is totally uncharted territory.
Having Marduk as a battleship as part of the setting was something I had in mind since the very beginning, but I never thought I'd actually get to write this scene for real.
During Volumes 2 and 3, the editor totally thought it was a joke when I told him, "To be honest, Marduk is a space battleship" (he probably doesn't remember it anymore).
In other words, there you have it, I have written this series to the point where I could not have imagined in the beginning.
Since it had been treated as a joke, I was actually quite afraid when submitting the outline for this volume. But fortunately, I got the OK and was able to write what I wished in its full form, Marduk vs giant dragon.
Next volume will also contain a scene that I've always wanted to write.
Writing what you want to write, the possibility of writing what you want to write—Now that's true happiness.
In order not to waste the chances given to me by the support from all you dear readers, I will definitely spare no effort and keep going, giving it my very best.
Next volume will greatly advance the plot, so I hope everyone can continue to follow this series.
Well then, next comes the acknowledgements.
Korie Riko-sensei, thank you again for drawing such lovely illustrations.
Mitsuki's expression on the cover is very touching. I'm also very happy that Atla is so adorable. Whenever I see Korie-sensei's illustrations, it feels like the characters in my mind have come to life. I owe it to Korie-sensei that I can keep writing the Fafnir series with such joy. I continue to look forward to working together.
Editor in charge, Shouji-sama, I am very grateful to you for giving useful suggestions and contacting me so swiftly. Because your workload is three times—no, exceeding that—more than other people's, I am very worried about when you actually sleep. Please take care of yourself. It would be my utmost honor if we are able to keep creating Fafnir together.
Finally, let me express my sincere thanks to all of my dear readers.
Okay, see you next time.

Fafnir Volume 12!
The climax is here at last.
I really liked Mitsuki-chan getting stripped by Iris-chan in Volume 12.
