I don't really see it varying... (Though the art from time to time seems to differ... I once doubted whether it really was Momo or a look-a-like in one of the color illustrations...)

I read the first story in Vol. 2, it was AWESOME! Such a SHOCKER at the end, made me smile so big. Such a great story.

Besides this, I then saw the anime version of it.............IT ...... WAS....HORRIBLE.

They ruined the story, I mean, seriously, they ruined it entirely.

Such a beautiful story, for the anime to change it so drastically, was gut wrenching.

LOLIS IS WIN! So I finally got around to volume 11, quite a beautiful plot. Well I do enjoy these kind of genre I guess.

Think I did try watching the anime adapt of this, no idea. It was a long time ago so I don't quite remember, but I really never got pass episode one before I dropped it. Still I don't even know why, since I don't usually drop series with lolis. Maybe I just don't have time, but you know, the novel is very good.

Scary... I hope real twins don't think the way anime twins sometimes tend to think... Scary, scary~

I've always wondered why the novel tends to create characters who names are in Katakana...... How nice they later reveal the kanji names of those characters, ne~?

Yo~sii~ Next volume finally has that story I've always been interested in after seeing the illustration... I think. (・ω・`)

Entirely? If I remember correctly, the anime adaption was quite close to the original story (besides the title and the end). Most things cut were the narration (which is normal when novel-->anime).

The 4 novel stories that are animated are pretty decent. A few cuts here and there (for time reasons, I believe), but fairly faithful... Coincidently, I prefer those 4 to the 2 anime-original. Plus there is the great OP (engrish...) and decent ED to hear.

Do you guys know if any stores are carrying this series anymore? I was buying light novels at Kinokuniya bookstore in NYC, but they were recently all replaced with yaoi novels. I was really liking Ballad of a Shinigami, but I can't seem to find it in stores anymore. Maybe I just have to order it online.

Volume 2 was good! Especially chapter 3 with the little girl! My friend Lee said that the little girl kinda looked like Osaka from Azumanga Daioh.

Unfortunately, Seven Seas has dropped the series. They weren't making much (if any) money off of some, or all, of the light novels. I believe they're keeping the license, but they won't be printing any new volumes or reprinting the old ones. There is little official news on this, but just look around their forums.

Don't know how I missed the releases, but volume 12 is out already. The 2nd volume of Unknown Stars is released this month.



Just from reading the ratings/reviews by readers... I don't wanna read this volume. (;_; )...
Then again, I'm not even close to volume 12... Hahaha.

I wish someone would buy the rights or a fan translation would start to finish them.

Its essentially a Kino no Tabi inspired series. It follows Momo, a shinigami, and her traveling companion Daniel, a talking flying demon cat, who visit different people and get involved in their lives. Each chapter is a short story and has a beginning and ending.

I've only read books 1-2 so far, and I highly suggest you get both. ^_^

This is the first Japanese novel I read, when I had only been learning the language for a little more than a year. I would say it is a good starter's choice if you have elementary Japanese background and haven't read any light novels before.

In particular, the writing emphasizes more on atmosphere and feeling instead of detailed descriptions. As a result the density of text per page is relatively low and even beginners would find it a comfortable reading experience.

Hope it helps.

Well, this is not the first novel I read, I have no trouble reading easier one like Baka to tesuto, and just have little difficulty reading To aru Majutsu no Index. But I hurt my head trying to memorize all those vocab on Spice and Wolf and Gossick @_@.

Oh well, might just give this a try since from serenade_beta's spoiler, it seems each volume is comprised of several short stories. Thx Doraneko ^^.

Necromancy~

New volume recently came out...
Spoiler for pic of title:


Unfortunately, it isn't a real "new" volume, but actually a collection of short stories the author has written before (such as DVD bonus novels, etc.)

Need to finish reading up to 12 before Summer ends...
