Damn. I just finished translated novels 30 until 33.

If the series ended at this point, I would still be really happy, but fortunately, that isn't the case at all. There are still several novels left to enjoy (albeit untranslated) before I say my farewells to the world of Marimite. Of course, there are still a few plot hooks left unexplored, though they are relatively minor in comparison to the closure offered by volume 33.

Spoiler for A few loose threads:

It saddens me, but I don't think a fifth season will come. Maybe I'm making wild conclusions, but I think the fandom for this series is way too niche. Just getting a 4th season is an achievement most shows today could ever hope to gain.

If it did, it would probably only cover the content until volume 33 ("Hello Goodbye"), which is to say, nothing of Rosa Chinensis Yumi.

(btw, I'm mainly a fan of Yumi. Her character development has been amazing throughout the series while being a consistent source of its best comedic moments.)

^ I take comfort in the fact that the translation project is still active, even if just barely.

With luck, I can force myself to forget about this now and come back in a couple of years to find the rest of the relevant novels translated in English. But honestly, if there was a series that could possibly convince me to learn the Japanese language, it would be this one.

Are the last four novels (after Hello Goodbye) being translated into English? This is my favorite series and I can't get enough of the light novels.

Only one translator has been working on this series for a while, as far as I know, presently. I think I read that they only have raws up to Volume 33, so that's why for the moment they seem to be working on vol. 10. Nonetheless hopefully/I expect we will get translations for vols. 34+ eventually, or at least a decent summary.

Some of the raws of volumes 34+ have been available so I don't think that's it. But it's good to know someone is still working on the translations .

I think vol34+ are mostly side stories.

I tend to like the side stories just as much as the Yamayurikai stories

You know ... there is sooooo much that the (admittedly quite enjoyable) anime adaptations of Maria-sama did not cover.

There is a lot that has been translated, and it is being translated very steadily (though not at break-neck speeds). You can find the volumes in English here: http://baka-tsuki.org/project/index....sama_ga_Miteru

Anyway, the last ep of the last season ended at the end of Volume 27 (of the 39 vols published) ... but there teensy bits hinted at from Volume 29 if I remember correctly?

Still though - the setting of Maria-sama is extremely detailed and the animes do a good job at a hearty immersion, but there is a lot more. So much that it is rather easy to get lost, actually. ^^
