I can onk read as far as the B-T translation is going along, which would be Volume 1 since they're missing 2 chapters in Volume 2, and are already started on Volume 5
Spoiler for book 13:


Still working on Volume5 translation!!!

I would. Anime is just not truthful enough and skips too many stuff compared to the novels. Specially the second season.

If anime would have been following novels at least decent enough then yeah skipping might be a good idea, but sadly second season does such a crappy work on following novels that its simply out of question to skip that since you would be missing some important points from the novels later on.

I really just want to read volume 8 for the emotional impact. To be honest, while I am interested in reading all of the novels, skipping to novel 8 then going back and doing 5, 6, and 7 would be fine.

Then again, I'm going crazy thinking that I'd have to wait until 2012 to read novel 8, considering the emotional impact that volume has

Plus there's people like me who can't read a word of japanese, and I really don't wanna miss out on any of the novels...

I'm pretty sure they don't intend on skipping to volume 8 and moving forward. More like doing volume 8 now, then continuing with 5, 6, and 7. You wouldn't miss out on anything.

Maybe I'm just not understanding why people are against having a translation of volume 8 done earlier.

Eh, some people just have a fixation of chronological or numerical order.

I took a really vague summary of 8, know nothing of 9 and 10, got a good summary of 11 and 12 and am currently waiting for a summary of 13. Since the translations are way back in the single digits, I will be waiting a while.

There was a short one posted pages back, but here's a longer one from me now that I'm done with the volume:

Spoiler for volume 13 summary:



Last thing:

If someone from Baka-Tsuki is here, two corrections on the titles:

The Flame Red Jewel of Atonement --> The Ruby of Atonement
It does indeed say "Flame Red Jewel", but the furigana above the kanji says "Ruby".
I guess it's more of a translator's choice.


The Door of the Holy Land --> The Holy Country's World Door/The World Door of the Holy Country
聖国の世界扉
This is more of a mistake.
国=Country
世界扉=Definitely is "World Door"

If anyone would be willing to give a detailed summary of novel 8, I would greatly appreciate it. Of course, it's understandable if no one really wants to take the time to do so.

Hmm... I think it won't end soon (or at least the next volume), because there is still quite a bit left to do.

-Defeat Joseph
-Revelation of the "Holy Land"
-Elves
-Pope and his idiotic plan
-Saito and his world

Also, the author says that there is still more to go for the series in the afternotes.
Of course, he doesn't necessarily have to go through it all.

Though I do want the series to end with Saito going back and staying in his world.

Though from the end of volume 13 (since Saito didn't actually go back to his world yet), possibly:

-Saito goes back to his world and comes back <--...Kind of don't want this...
-Saito stays in his world and the story focuses on the remaining characters
-Julio lies and Saito doesn't make it back to his world <--Why is it that this seems likely...
-The World Door doesn't work/Pope does something...
