If you want English translations, you'll have to go to Bakatsuki. Not much is done but at least there's some people actively translating it.

I use Chinese translations instead, and that's pretty up to date as far as I know.

Flere821 already clarified things here. But if you don't know Japanese or Chinese and hoping for English translations aside from summaries posted by other members. Then you will merely have to wait for Baka-Tsuki to translate things since they are finally back at work once again after finding a way to bypass the copyright that has plagued us for years by ViZ. ViZ only translated volumes 1-2 and they are quite poorly translated just to say. For Baka-Tsuki translations, you can go to this site link here

Season 2 left off on volume 16. So translations will never reach in time unless the translators for Baka-Tsuki are dedicated to the core, so season 3 and the fansubbers are probably the best bet you can get for now.

It gets on my nerves when a company wont translate something, but refuses to let anyone else to.

That aside, I am looking forward to reading the SnS Light novels once they get fully translated.

Does anyone have synopses for volumes 11-15? I've been searching this forum but haven't found much yet, except for plenty of info about other volumes.

From noticing the number of repeated requests for the synopsis of different volumes, a sticky-tag would be great too...

hello..i'm new in here...and i am the one of SnS's fans too( but i just watch the anime, the LN is not full translated yet) but i want to ask some question....
1. i am just wondering....how popular is SnS light novel series in Japan now?? i know Shana is overhelming popular since the first season anime was released.. but somehow i didn't hear the name pretty often now.

2. why is the english translated SnS pretty slow? well i know the translator has his own problem in the real world but SnS has more active translator than TAMNI in baka-tsuki...

3. when i try to check the forum and compare with other forum (for example To aru series) , it's has far less post than the TAMNI forum's post, is the forum going hiatus for a while??

4. what are vol in the light novel that already adapted to anime....???

sorry for my complaining, i am pretty new in here and still don't know to much about SnS series,,,,....i appreciate if you answer my question thank you..

The new Haruhi novel and the Summer season animes really preoccupied me these few weeks :x

@ Above:

1. It is still popular, with SnS popping up in quite a few Newtype polls, as far as I know of. Well the Astonishment of Suzumiya Haruhi dethroned everything when it was released, so...

2. The Chinese translators are, trust me, really active. They covered all the volumes so far as I know. The translations they did are pretty good too, if you are fluent in Chinese

3. It is at stand-still, both the novel and the would be Season 3 of the anime.

4. Everything up until around 14 (?), except for the volume with the Mathilde arc, can't remember which. Can't remember much about anything except the characters and plot, I read the latest volume a few months ago ><

Hope this helps.

Oh my god there's so many new users and questions.

Let me just say that a lot of you are questioning the ending. Saying that you hope it ends well, or that you hope " jc staff doesn't **** it up". I can tell you right now the novel will have an amazing ending. That's a fact. So do not worry. As to wether it will be "sad" or "happy". Honestly I think it will end well for the characters, if this was a build up break down story then it probably wouldn't be so complicated and long. Usually these kinds of factors lead to a "grandiose" ending were things turn out for the best. I don't see any melancholy ending really.

As for the anime....

I'm not quite sure. From personal experiance I'm pretty sure anime is altered in quite a different way. And I'm preeeeeeety sure it's usually for realistic purposes. So if JC staff wants to **** it up well then no one can stop them. But I doubt that. It's a good series, not something to take lightly (you'll take much better care of a $100 bill then a $1 bill right?). They'll probably lead it into the right direction. And besides, that teaser trailer explained that their going to follow the novel path anyway. They can't mess that up now.

I just had to bring that up.

What teaser trailer? Can you give a link please? (I'm almost certain that if I try to look I'd find something else not even close to the one we're talking about here)

I think he means the last scene in Shakugan no Shana S episode 4.

For #1. When I first arrived in this forum and AnimeSuki, there was a report about Shakugan no Shana light novels selling for around 7.5 million copies. Reaching that mark in (I think its a 6 year mark now?) that time period seems pretty sufficient for popularity-wise. The teaser for season 3 shows the bridge scene from novel 16, while the anime overall ended at novel 14 where Yuji dissappears and goes evil, while rallying about the Bal Masque when Shana and Kazumi look for him. That's practically volume 14 there, volume 15 is a flashback volume of a flame haze we haven't met. I believe they plan to animate that volume although it still serves no major purpose for story overall.

The only problem I have so far, is that they never did animate the dreams that Yuji has when he chats with Snake about what's happening in the world and if it's truly right. Slowly talking Yuji into his goals about creating a new world where Tomogaras can live without the need to feast off humans for power of existance.

My paragraph above explains volume 14-15. While I'm not all that knowledgable about volume 11-13, since I only remember up to volume 9-10 before the skip to volume 14 since second season already covered most of the novels even though it was majorly anime original. Then again, it chopped out development of other flame hazes that will appear later in the volumes.

I believe they worded their questions quite accurately to what they wanted. What dont you get?

Well not that many questions that I'm already used to. But there is quite the increase user-wise

Volume 22 is basically where the volume will end (Guess I was counting extras this whole time ), so when it releases before season 3 reaches its ending. Then it will be right there that J.C. Staff will have no excuse over not enough information from the volumes to finish it. So if they really want to tarnish their remaining reputation to dust and lose major profit then they can just go ahead and mess with season 3. Now if they want to rebuild their reputation, then Shakugan no Shana season 3, To Aru Majutsu no Index season 3, and a rehash of Zero no Tsukaima season 3 is their best bet to start.

J.C. Staff seems to have enough investment to pull through animation wise since they animated quite the decent amount of animes 2-3 seasons ago. Now if they didn't throw their money in a fire, then if they invest majorly into season 3 where all those Shana fans and potential Shana fans are waiting for. Then I have high hopes they will make a decent profit from it. So overall, I don't see any reason for J.C. Staff to just blow their own studio to the ground by screwing this up.

agree.....

those 3 anime are the most potential biggest profitable project...(well i doubt if it's zero no tsukaima)...for jc staff.... and SnS season 3 must be a good start followed by TAMNI season 3.......

and i want to see GARyuuji...

Yes that is the "teaser trailer" I'm talking about. The term,imo,comes from the gaming industry so it's a term I'm used to .

Well I agree mostly with what you're saying. But you must remember it's a business to them. Major companies could give a crap about their fans and a crap about their products. It's a about the $money$. I mean, if I was a corporate asshole and only cared about money, and not anime or games. Then I would screw the plot, and turn the story into an endless money making machine. (I've had this happen to many things I love) Remember quantity over quality! (sarcasm)

That's what i'm trying to say and partly what your saying. But the chances are unlikely. That's the cruel cruel world we live in.

Yes, after two seasons of seeing Yuji getting PHYSICALLY man handled by everyone from Hecate to that stupid baby rhinne from the first episode, I can safely say we ALL want to see him go god mode.
