Series Ending Soon?

Series Ending Soon?

Jun 28

Yes, I am still here! It’s been a while. I hope you’ve all been doing ok.

(Ugh, I couldn’t find a way to make the title less click-baity. Sorry. It’s just that I can’t tell 100% without an official announcement.)

Anyway, Puyo’s (@puyotopia) last Tweet states (thanks to Carol who noticed this):


As Nagato will be ending soon, Mr. Tanigawa took the trouble to send me a message. I am both happy and thankful. [Translated]

This probably means that Volume 10 will be the final volume. I guess it was kind of getting obvious though, with some main characters leaving and all. So… I’ll monologue for a bit now. If you don’t want to read it, skip to the last sentence.

First off, this has been a really special experience. Thank you all for reading with me. I enjoyed working on this project, and I really feel blessed that I got to do so. It’s very rare for me to find a series that I’m that interested in. Strangely, never once did it feel like I didn’t want to work on this project or that I got sick of it. To be honest, I don’t know why I got so interested in the first place. Perhaps it was because I wanted a happy ending for Nagato. Perhaps I’m just a nerd who likes Haruhi related stuff too much, and I’m a sucker for intertextuality. But regardless, this has been really fun, and I’ve learned a lot. So once again, thank you so much all for the support. It really helps when people are interested in your work. I don’t want to sound like I’m saying my work is the holy grail or anything, so at the risk of letting it all go to my head, I’ll stop now.

That said, the series isn’t officially over yet. Stay tuned for actual official announcements. And here’s hoping for a satisfying ending. (Not that I expect one, but I really like epilogues, and I really want to see one for this series. Not enough stories do that.) Oh, and, of course, I still plan on translating Volume 10 whenever it actually does come out.

What do you think? I’d like to hear from you.
