Is there any mention of when the incoming 9th volume is coming out?

Hey? Anyone have a summary of the latter half of volume 6 and all of volume 7?

Does anyone at least have a status report on Anri-san, like what she's been doing in volume 6 and 7? From the looks of things she distanced herself from Mikado, and we have all that crap happening to him which made him to who he is in vol. 8.

Thanks if anyone responds!

I have heard no wind of it yet, so it's likely that still no date.

If you want any info on Volume 6 & 7, it's best to read Anni's LJ as she translating the books.

As for Anri, I don't know, but she hasn't distance herself from Mikado, in fact it's quite the opposite.

Anni is sort of my only source for the actual translations, but has stopped midway of Volume 6 (though she has been translated snippets here and there in 7 and 8) .

I'm pretty sure Anni is just busy, give her some time, and use the spoiler tag if you want to talk about spoilers.

If you can't find it use this code then:

As for Mikado's and Anri's you have just pointed out some examples yourself that they are getting closer furthermore Shinra, put it best:

I'II discuss the other stuff when it's under spoiler tags.

Sorry about that; I didn't know how to use spoiler tags manually, nor did I notice the button with the exclamation mark in a yellow three sided sign that automatically did it for you.

The more you know I guess.

So how different is the anime compared to the light novel? I'm guessing a lot, but with Baccano! I was pretty sure I was missing a lot given how open ended the ending was and they had odd character in the first episode (girl with a spear).

Does the light novel go further than what is shown in the anime or have an entirely different plot? Judging from some comments minor characters in the anime are more fleshed out in the novel such as Izaya's sisters, but what else?

I haven't read volumes 1-3 of the novel (which is what the anime covers), but, from what I've heard, it's pretty much the same. I know there are some changes, but I wouldn't know too many of them. Things like Simon lecturing Izaya was different in the novels, and episode 6 of the anime was handled differently in the novel. The plot itself is the same, so a second season would be possible.

The anime only covered volumes 1-3, and there are nine novels so far, so it does go farther. Like I said, from what novels were adapted, the plot is the same. As for Izaya's sisters, they first showed up in volume 4, so the anime didn't leave anything out about them. Very minor characters in the anime, like Shiki from Awakusu-kai, are more fleshed out in later novels as well.

If you want to check the novels out, they are translated online. I'm pretty sure volume 1 is completely translated, and volumes 4-6 are also translated.

Wow sounds awesome that there is so much content available for another anime. Still there would be limiting factors such as starting a project to make another season and then the time to make it, but it's great to here the content is not a problem. I'll read it when I have time as I doubt I'll be able to wait for it to be made into an anime.

I'm wondering what happen to Saki in detail after the anime? When I was reading through the pages I only see very little information about her in the spoiler tags.

She left Ikebukuro with Kida at the end of the anime and, as far as I know, hasn't returned since (although she might be in the chat room now, there's almost a dozen people in it last I checked).

Thanks, I was wondering if she did anything significant when she left with Kida. So no character development or anything in the novels about her?

I haven't read all the translations but I think Kida only returned to Ikebukuro in volume eight or nine so both of them have been pretty quiet honestly. I think I did hear that they were working for Izaya somehow but even then I don't know exactly what they were doing.
