Uhmmm, in my opinion, Sagara is Kurdish, and I think nearly of them are Muslims. If I base it by line of birth and ethnicity.... Sagara is Muslim, no doubts.

Uhm, no, Sousuke is Japanese. Why do people think he's not? You're not the first person I've heard who's said that. He's Japanese, his first language was Japanese though he doesn't remember that. He started living in Russia when he was 4ish until about 8, THEN Afghanistan until about 12. There, he was with the Mujahedeen, and he did some converting.

As I recall, he doesn't actually eat pork (although he's sensible and will eat whatever if he needs to, but when given the choice, he avoids it) although this has been mis-represented in the manga. He also observes Ramadan, at the very least, when he can. From what I can gather, he's not necessarily religious, but he's respectful of the religion he was taken into when his life was saved. They could just as easily have killed him, since he was sent to kill their beloved general, but they spared him instead.

This shouldnt be an issue anymore if you read the last book Lol..

It's clear as day that Sousuke is Japanese. When you see the....


Spoiler:


Didn't Sousuke kill a boar on the Mithiril island once? He was seeking treasure with Kurtz...?

No matter who makes the next installment, I hope it'll be longer than the last season and the same length as of the very first season.

i think he might be muslim. in fact, i'm pretty sure being muslim has nothing to do with race. there are japanese people who practise islam. race and religion are two seperate things so yea, there's a decent chance of him being a JAPANESE MUSLIM

Hi there,

after a rewatch of TSR I found out that the Official Soundtrack of TSR is somewhat "incomplete" cuz the Anime uses some tracks which I couldn 't find by myself.

The Track I was mainly searching for appears in Episode 5 in the end where Mao and Sousuke sitting in the Helicopter and talking about his future. The music also appears in the last episode where Kaname points on Sousuke and calls him a weakling and so on xD

Someone know which track that is ?^^

If this series got dubbed by funimation why was it discontinued? What are the realistic chances of this series finally getting finished?

FMP is finished. 2 Japanese animation studios (Gonzo and Kyoani) also animated half of the Novels. FMP is popular in Japan but it's not a goldmine like K-ON! or Haruhi so they are not immediatly willing to do more animation over there. Also ADV did the english dub for all 3 animated series and published FMP! and Fumoffu while Funimation published TSR and later bought the rights for the first 2 seasons and rereleased them as well.

Please note that there is a difference between a publisher (Funimation) and a animation Studio (Gonzo and Kyoani). Funimation is just buying licenses from the studios to publish their Animes outside of Japan (like in the US). Funimation has absolutley no involvement in the animationprocess. Imagine Funimation as youtube and Kyoani as a uploader. See how much youtube can do about uploader creating more content? Nothing!

TP is waiting to see how well that one sells before they decide to publish any more. If you want to see the rest of them, buy 12 copies of End of Day By Day!

Right now, TP is going to go bye bye soon. IIRC, they should announce who's going to take over the publishing of the novels for North America.

I have seen all the episodes, but I do know there has been another novel made in correlation to the main story. Is this translated to English? Is there a manga-version that I can read? Thanks.
