    yep the story might be already dead. i dont sense any future (not that i did any analysis on it or anything) on this series. the lack of motivation its fan had also becoming less and less. i dont think there would be any vol 6 on this. vol 5 be one thing but if the author already struggling with it, looking at the gap between releases, the hope become so dwindling that i will be surprise if author does proves me wrong. but that just my view on it, so take it with a bit of salt.

    Just read volume 4 of the light novel, was pretty shite to me.

    The whole plot with Rose was kinda forced and predictable
    Kinda obvious her mother was a bad guy since how else could the king be poisoned, plus why else would she be at the ruins willingly it seemed, also author kinda made himself look bad in my opinion when he wrote that the king knew he was poisoned yet told his wife to switch the meals yet still ended up more poisoned.

    Seemed like author watched game of thrones and took the part where little finger had the queen of the vale poison her husband and such, author just editied some minor points but still obvious.

    The Mordred telling them about all the stuff was stupid and weird since why would he, feels like author just wanted to poorly set up the background and what happens next.

    So the world's are called realms and magic arrived on the current world when it collided with a different realm, isn't that the background of The Witcher series. Seems like the author is just mixing novels they've read into this without any thought.

    MC jumps into the realm thingy and goes back to Earth through the power of plot, Now incomes the typical post apocalyptic story.

    I personally don't see this series going past 7, if it does I hope it's not dragged out with more nonsensical plots, I think it will since author added the whole realm thing so. Maybe it won't be as bad as the novel mapping and end up being discontinued.

    Just my own personal gripes, I'll read it again when I get a chance to see if my opinion changes but I doubt it will.

    I think the web novel prison ark was better.

    I haven't read that one but ill give it a shot later, Author is apparently in a slump from the afterword but all they had to do was edit the WN arc like they did for the first 3 volumes and it would've been fine and dandy.

    Probably would've flowed better than what they went with, especially since it felt rushed.

    A new chapter of the WN has just been posted! here

    Also, the author wrote that he finished writing the story of vol 5 of the LN and it is going through proofreading right now.
    そして、最後に書籍5巻の件ですが……。
    本文は書き終わり、現在は校正の段階ですので、近いうちにお届けできます!

    MTL:
    And finally, about the 5th volume of the book...
    I've finished writing the main text, and it's currently in the proofreading stage, so I'll be able to send it to you soon!

    pretty sure that's not the case. i mean even if it is, it's still unknown if the WN will be continuing to update again, its not that big of a deal.

    If you don't include that March 2021 chapter it's a three year hiatus. I wouldn't be so confident to say the author is finally back though, given this chapter just so happened to come out before the anime began and just so happens to have a paragraph of text at the start advertising the anime and light novel.

    Sofia looks like edited MTL so I don't think there will be WAR as such...
    Plus I don't see the point of web-novel when the LN is canon.

    The anime is quite different. I had to check multiple times to see if I was watching the right thing.

    It's because they also adapted a short story from one of the later volumes of the LN, they may try to trick new viewers in to thinking that it is a serious anime
