^ Well, a lot of people, me included, have given up on Hidan no Aria's worldbuilding and metaphysics aspects. I personally expect something at the level of Academy City, and ended up with a powerlevel system that is reminiscent of Towers of Hanoi more than anything.

And what was left of the fanbase was severely turned off by how the romance aspect was handled. Not only did the author make a character that has personality problems that her partner ended up ditching her, but she was replaced by new characters.

Wait, so has Kinji really dumped Aria and she's really been replaced as the female lead, or is this just a "they had problems and broke up but will overcome them and get back together at some point" drama thing?

And who are the new characters since I already left here for a year?

Speaking of romance, I couldn't tell if it would be another School Days.

Before the Butei system in Japan was implemented, the person who worked directly under the Ministry of Justice and was an armed prosecutor and died… my father, Tohyama Golden Cross…!
Kinji father is in fact dead.

It seem like G4 and G3 is extremely strong, but for G4 to fight against the 4 girls and owned without receiving any damage at all is bullshit.
Through out the story the 4 girls have been portray to have awesome skills by to be wiped out on the floor agianst a single enemy make me wonder how did they manage to beat and capture so many IU personal.
And since I only started to read vol 10, I hope they only lost this bad is because of food posioning from the hot pot they had on vol 9. If there isn't any excuse why they lost and later the girls when and battle against G4 again and won, I be pretty piss.

I can see now, why there so much people dislike how the LN is progressing.

Judging from Vol. 14's illustrations, they got back together.

I highly doubt Kinji would leave Aria, they probably temporary spilt up due to some misunderstanding (like alway) in this case the spilt lasted for 2 whole volumes rather then the usually 1 volume.

At the start it's just another harem comedy, but this has to the first LN I've seen that relies heavily on the MC's fetish in order to keep the main girl as the love interest, rather than the emotional side of things. IMO that's bad writing.

May it is, but what you may not be aware that GIII and GIV were train and raised as human weapons and received a large amount of combat training pretty much since they were born. There is also the possibility that GIV may have study the girls fighting style develop countermeasures to defeat each girl.

The problem with the Gx characters is that they seem to cheapen the characters from IU.
This is why I hated the powerlevels in this series. It got out of control as early as the arc right after IU arc. And what's even more bad about this is how Aria's mother's "crimes" were not cleared after the accused were called out for their false accusations... unless Aria's mother actually did the crimes herself.

And where are the Armed Persecutors, by the way?

^ Well the author didn't stated he is dead, he just disappear and dying.

*edit*
Finally I have finish really reading all 10 vols and it took me only 7 days.
I have become like many of the guys here, finding fault in the novel yet would continually reading it.
Anyway after reading vol 10, a question came to mind, if GIII is one of the 7 R-ranking Butei in the world and got beaten by Kinji. Then just how powerful have Kinji become by vol 12?

Just so you know, there are summaries for volume 11 and 12 on this thread. Well IIRC, Kinji has become so strong and powerful that he has exceeded the limits of a human being and may no longer be considered a human.

So when he is in HSS mode, he is strong enough to no consider human huh, but that mean he still not any good while in normal mode and I doubt he have found a way to goes HSS anytime he want, right.

I might be temped to read the summaries. Be back in 2 sec.

*edit*
After reading the summaries I found here, I am looking forward to reading the next 2 vols especially vol 12 for the intro of Tohyama family.

He's up there in maybe the top 10% of fighters, going by strictly human standards. Then again, this series has more than humans, with magicians, youkai and demons running around in the background ^^; (Wow, reading this sentence made me realize just how far this series has diverged from its roots of being detectives, and is now just another of those romance comedy settings + action >.>)

Everyone, I'm happy to announce that we have a new translator.
His/Her name is JACK ShadowHunter.
We now have a total of 4 translators:
• NiMx1233
• Hiyono
• KanzakiAria
• JACK ShadowHunter

JACK ShadowHunter has registered him-/herself for Volume 12 Chapter 1 and NiMx1233 will be back soonest October.


Hidan no Aria seems to be getting more and more translators lately. 2 translators in 2 months. I remember, were nobody was working on it and we prayed for people to pick the series up. Our prayers have been heard

I'll keep you guys updated, when a new chapter/volume has been translated and, when there's a new translators.

A big thanks to JACK ShadowHunter for picking this series up.
