About the novels[]

How many volumes are there?[]

There are currently 21 volumes in Japan, plus some special volumes: vol 0, vol 0-II vol 2.8, vol 5.5, vol SP and vol SP2. For the English release the 21 one volumes have all been released as of April 2022.

Where can I buy read the novels?[]

The novels have been licensed by Yen Press. You can buy the hard copy at your local bookstore or buy their eBook online. For those who try to save their money, Book Depository is a great place to order. It has free shipping worldwide and often has discounts on their products.

Isn't there any fan-translation that I can read?[]

Yes, but this isn't the place to ask for links. It's fine to read the free fan-translations, but the translator expects you to support the author by buying a legal copy. Do note that randomly posting links to free translations can bring the translator in trouble too.

Will we get an English translation of the special volumes?[]

It's very likely that volume 0 and 0-II will get an official translation, since they're part of the main series, the other two however will probably only get fan-translations. Volumes 2.8 and 5.5 weren't available for sale in Japan as they came together with the DVD/ Blue-Ray of the anime. That is why it's very unlikely for them to have an official translation.

About the anime adaptation[]

How much of the novels has the anime covered?[]

The anime only covered volumes 1 and 2 of the novels. This is probably done, because the first two volumes are introduction arcs, to make the reader familiar with the characters and setting.

Is there a season 2?[]

Yes. It is currently airing.

About the manga adaptation[]
