That being said, the story ended too soon, probably from the fatal blow of being rated "Unsuitable for below 19". Too many stories to tell, too few pages to write, too hasty an ending (and a relatively crappy one at that). It had potential, but faced the limitations of the Korean LN market. Let's see what the author comes up with in the future.
wouldn't you say 4 novels is quite decent in the Korean market though?

oh and "which maria?" so there's more then one ey?...

I'm more focused on the "censorship" (for lack of a better word) which tends to shoot down "controversial" stories. That's the main reason why the novel ended at four volumes, as the author wrote in his afterword.

Only Japan can get away with controversial story without getting cancel. Most country always tend to be narrow minded.

Even if you make a clone of someone it doesn't make it is a complete copy. For example they won't have the same IQ.

Wrong kind of example. IQ is not based on genes, so you can't used it.

Ok so take example from the "Sister" series in ToAru where as the clone has been experiment to intake the same food and the same training however the result is still the same that states that even a perfect clone is not the same as the original.

Vol.1 of Sekai ichi no imouto sama is now done. It was good read and was very interesting to me. It was refreshing that it was different from other light novels I have seen.

Edit: I also want to thank the team at imoutolicous fo rtaking time out of their lives to translate these Korean Light Novels for us to enjoy.

Has this series ended? I checked Baka-updates and it says that the series ended at four volumes, but before it said that it had ended at two volumes.

Yeah the series ended at vol. 4. From what I gather it was because of the ratings the novel was branded with which was a r-18 or something like that status because a snitched decided to informed a moral committee of what they found offense in the light novel which made it the first korea light novel to achieve that status. Maybe the publishers felt that it was risky to keep running a series like that and told the author to finish it as soon as possible.

Damn them. Hey wasn't there some sort of movement in Japan to censor otaku content through some legal act?

I remember hearing about something like that somewhere. But I'm not sure what it was for.
