Really can't trust when he says the next novel will be released. He has lied about everyone one so far. And yeah he is burnt out, been working on this for 12 years. I really don't like such long period, he should have ended it years ago. Seems like no stories end anymore, everyone just wants to milk the cash cow forever.

I don't think it's so much milking the cash cow. If he wanted to do that, he would of released the last novel quick, and it would have been shitty. Really though, if he was burnt out, he should of just finished the series. Then he wouldn't have to worry about it anymore. But that's just my opinion.

I think there is quite a number of fans who already did that. Or are like me, have no interest in the series just want to see the end so that they could finally place a 'complete' stamp on something that should have been finished long time ago.

Well he released 20 volumes of FMP novels, given a big part are short stories, but her certainly look like he has been milking them, it's just not that intense as with some others, but releasing so many SS stories show either lacking ideas how the main plot should go but willing to still make money or simply feeling that the ending comes closer and wanting to milk it further... Or simply wanting to milk a good material without advancing the plot (which would push it closer to the end).

So yeah, i do view it as milking, just not as intense as lets say Gainax Evangelion cow milking...

I guess that could be also true, however the public does like fumoffu-type stories. I liked Fumoffu, but I liked the main story a lot better. I'm not even sure how he would rake in tons of money by doing side stories, he probably writes them because he enjoys it. I just wish he would take the time to finish the last damn novel(s).

Side Stories are actually strategical mean to keep auidience interested, especially if you are stalling the progress of the main story.

Thats why Side Arms came and Side Arms are not nearly as popular with audience as Fummofu was but helps him to keep on milking and holding the interest in the series without having to move the main plot, it helps. Yeah you wont earn all that much cash from them alone but its more about holding the interest in the main series without need to advance the main plot.

And FMP almost as much side Stories volumes as main story ones... I don't mind some Side Stories but when there are almost as much SS as main story I don't think it is very good thing.

Yes, according to the words of the info, it'll be released before Summer's Comic Market.
While the original info is from 2ch, it's somehow Gatoh's own commentary in a talk show, so it can be reliable......

But then this is Gatoh we're talking about. So hope he won't run away this time. Duh.

I'm with you. Release dates for all the previous novels were broken as well. He is milking it, plane and simple. I have pretty much lost interest in this too. I don't even care what happens anymore, I just want to see closure. Even if all of them died, every last one, meh for me.

I have a little question I hope someone can answer...

I recently re-watched the 3 anime series of FMP and re-read a few of the later novels, and from what I can tell, Sousuke has never called Chidori by her given name. "Kaname".

Am I right in thinking that? From what I can tell he only ever called her Chidori.

Yup, never once does he call her 'Kaname.' It's always Chidori. ^^ And never Chidori-san or anything (I have no idea where this 'Miss Chidori' came from). JUST Chidori.

Forget Miss Chidori, I am fairly certain he has called her Kaname in the US dub! I think it was an episode of Fumoffu, I was rewatching a scene to see what it was like with the dubbed voices and I'm sure he said Kaname! It struck me because I was pretty sure he has never called her Kaname in the original Japanese.

It was a significant moment for Sousuke to called the Captain "Tessa"; I wonder if the final book with give us a lovey-dovey moment where Sousuke finally uses Kaname's name? *sighs* Gief new novel!
