    There hasn't been an update since October 2017 after Chapter 299, so I was wondering if anyone has heard anything regarding the novel.

    Wouldn't be the first novel with months-long gaps. There are even some with gaps that last over a year.
    (Check the author's comment timeline.)

    I searched for a bit, but no, no word from the author.
    Comment section was also wondering, but not really that much.
    The gap between chapter 244 and 245 was also of over four months.

    No word or whatsoever from the author...
    hmmm but it's not that uncommon for some author's in syosetu to not update for months maybe even a year though.

    Is there or will there be a LN adaptation ?
    Many authors stop uploading their WN when they work on the LN version (and some publishers make them erase it)...

    Nope. Every book in the Top 50 and almost all of the Top 100 books on Syosetu have been published as light novels. All of them that is, except for "Kenkyo". Given that it's been super popular pretty much since it first came out, it's certain that publishers have tried to sign the writer to a publication contract. To date there has been no announcement of any such deal so it's likely that she has refused all such offers. Same reason why there's no official art for the book, only fanart.
