it's been over 1 year now without a chapter, I think I'm going to die
Just read the light novel, it's being translated.
And good. I actually prefer it over the WN.
Couldn't find the LN version on novel updates though
That's because it is licensed. Yen press I believe.
Cool, I have assumed that it was translated by fans.
If anyone is interested: here is the link
Search around Google and you'll find the volume available to download, can't link it since it's against the rules.
I highly suggest buying the novels and not downloading for free and all that other stuff so I can't be blamed and such
So the official novel reached the wn?
It's not quite there yet. Volume 7 diverged pretty heavily from the WN, but it ends with them just about reaching the demon country.
Spoiler: Serious Volume 7 LN spoilers
In Volume 7, they're crossing a wasteland implied to be caused by nuclear warfare when Shiro finds the equivalent of the facility she obtains godhood in during the WN. The facility awakens and launches one of Potimas' giant UFOs (so first seen much earlier in the LN than the WN), which he claims were just schematics he sold to a pre-apocalypse country. The problem is the UFO has a bomb on it that could potentially destroy a continent meant as a self-destruct, so Ariel, Shiro and Potimas infiltrate the ship to disarm the bomb (with Potimas making multiple backstab attempts with varying degrees of success).
The bomb is inside a Gloria unit, which they manage to disable after Potimas hacks it to make it try to kill Shiro; Ariel takes serious damage saving her. Something, I forget what exactly, makes the bomb begin its trigger sequence after the Gloria is defeated and Shiro eats it, triggering her apotheosis and making her weaker than a normal person without System support. IIRC the last chapter of the novel is Potimas making killing Shiro a priority now that she's an Administrator.
Latest LN in Japanese (v12) comes out on the 10th. I doubt the LNs will catch up with where the WN is until V20 at a minimum.
It's the same story overall, but the details are different. After the first 3 volumes it's basically a re-write so there's a lot of value in reading the LN version and you can also support the author by buying official translations.
PS The author made a brief post recently:
Basically apologises for not being able to update the WN due to being so busy and also looks like this year could be even worse.
Update, were getting an anime yall!!! There was an announcement/small preview in the crunchyroll awards stream
we already knew there was an anime there was a pv in 2018
Oh yeah... it was so long ago I forgot. my bad
we also got confirmation it would be airing this year at the start of the year
I wonder, arent you kinda late at anime adaptation news ? especially adaptation from Light Novels.
There are plenty of Page in facebook or account in twitter that provides anime related news whether it's original or adaptation.
you need it.
Nah...Facebook is evil, an Twitter gives me the twitches.
I usually look around at Kiss.
Still, the news that CrunchyRoll has the license clues us in that the anime should air relatively "soon", so I'm thinking Summer is the latest it'll be released, with a possibility for Spring.
Man, 2 years, I was out of NU for like 2 years, I thought the hiatus would be done by now. Kinda sad since I remember looking forward to this WN everyday, it was one of those thing that held me back on NU for so long too.
