Spoiler for The Arcs and Published Volumes:
What whsie said, though it's possible arcs 5 and 6 will be 1 volume each or perhaps the two arcs will be combined (since it is essentially one large story) and released as 3 volumes. Arc 5+6 web combined is about the same size (I think a little smaller, actually) than arc 2. I also think there will be another short story novel after arc 4, since there is that Mayumi side story which does not quite fit in with arc 4.

I think I wrote a summary of it a while back. You'll need to do some digging. Chronologically, it's placed after Web 3, but written after Web 4. It's about the aftermath of the events in Web 3 and Mayumi staying home because all school is cancelled. It's the first time that we're introduced to the other war level magician- Mio- and Mayumi's very, very sly father. We also get our first look at the Mayumi twin sisters.

Ah thanks.
Hmm, is that it though? It feels somewhat incomplete (not referring to the translation), I mean like the story's just getting started & stuff.

well, that's why it's a short story (well, a short one at that). You could think of it as one of the branches between Web 3 and Web 5 (Web 4 is a flashback). Because of the events of Web 3, the events of the SS happened, leading into Web 5.

Edit:

I know that Mayo and Maya can be written with the same kanji, and in Yuutousei "Maya" is their aunt (little sister of their mother I guess) but still I'm a bit confused.
Thanks a lot, I had TLed it Maya as well and was perfectly happy then I read here that she's dead (??) and I just had to go chase it up. Anyways.

四葉 真夜 Yotsuba Maya- Current head, aunt, has the magic 'night' etcetc..
司波 深夜 Shiba Miya- Tatsuya and Miyuki's mother, deceased, has a twin sister called.. Maya. Wonder who that could be?

Who the hell is Mayo? (I'm trying hard not to laugh at that name..)

Mayo = Maya. For some reason, I had it in my head that Maya's name was Mayo originally and didn't change that, so I always referred to her as such. I didn't remember actually seeing the original name (when the actual pronunciation is written out). I always thought the name was odd. Thanks for that.

Then I'm rather happy that I leave it as Maya. I think I could have made a mistake if there wasn't furigana in this series xD

I read 真夜 either as "Mayo" or "Maya", and that was the reason why I had a bit of confusion :P

At least, this is 1000000000x times easier to do than the novel

Mayo is not an odd name, btw.

The funny thing is that "Mayo" in Spanish is also the 5th month of the year.


So, lets go and change the whole thread in Novel Shoppu xD (jk).

I suppose the name was not unusual, but I always thought of it as a shortening of the word "Mayonnaise," so it kind of bugged me. And yes, the kanji can be read as Mayo or Maya, but when she is first introduced, the pronunciation is written as "Maya."

It was mentioned in passing in the Visiter Arc... and since Web 5 is still in various bits and pieces, I can't easily fish up the actual quote and find out exactly what happened =/
