Just to clarify I wasn't ragging on those series, I was just using them as examples of career-defining works. I doubt SnS's author will ever move on to a new story once he decides to end things.

What other series is the author doing? Is it as popular as Oreimo?

As for how long Oreimo will last... it's certainly not going to go longer than 2 volumes, in my opinion. Not unless the author wants to turn the series into a drama-angst novel and deviate from the light-hearted otaku style the previous novels have been.

Having finished volume 7, it's definitely has a serious tone, and the ending has more weight once you've gone through the entire chapter. Unless the next volume makes a huge mess out of everyone's relationships, I can't see this as being just another fake out like it was with Kirino and volume 6's ending.

Which also means the story has started to reach a conclusion, in terms of the three main characters that is.


Spoiler:
Agree, this series is about slice of life, "normal" romantic comedy, more intone to ToraDora fo I won't expect it to last more than 2 books after that, other than that the most I can see are Spin-offs to expand the series similar to Bungaku Shōjo and Bakemonogatari. This series is not a romantic harem comedy that can live on episodic happening nor a pure love comedy with main characters crawls on snail pace despise mutual attraction. I'm expecting one more book of fall out from Vol 7 and another more to wrap it up.




Anyway, after reading what those who had already read v7 here is my thought:


Spoiler for Vol 7 thoughts:




I do want to ask those that has already read it, did the author mention anything about need book being the last in postface? they usually tell you if next volume is going to be the last.

Don't usually read those, but glancing through it, she talks about the PSP game (she wrote the Ayase and Kanako route for the game) and mentions how Vol 8 will be the climax of the love arc.

I still don't think the series will last too long. If 8 is the end of "love arc" than I say maybe 2-3 books after that at most, after all Kyosuke is already in his 3rd year and with the way these school-love comedies go, graduation is usually the time limit. And since the series is told from Kyosuke's POV, it would be kind of weird to continues the story into his college years. So unless the author REALLY slows down the pace of the series I still say the series will most like ends in 3 maybe 4 more books.


Besides, the longer the series drags on, the more....

@omimon; yep. exactly.

@undertaker: hmm, after 7 I admit kuroneko's cuteness went up a few levels, like that shironeko... but I still dont think the author would come up with her ending for this novel.

Spoiler for 7 lol:
