Definitely not Volume 8, 16 episodes too irregular.

Houki is the best so I have no problems with that.

I was just reading the new manga and saw an update by Izuru on the side. He said that he was working on Volume 9 and I don't know if he's joking but he mentioned something about bloomers and thighs.

Why do I feel like the manga scanlator is a bit slow update? I mean I havent read any English scanlated chapters. If anyone read that, just give me the web address/link. Thanks

Flere estimated Vol.8 to have ~20% plot, now I'm wondering how much of Vol.9 is plot.
I thought Izuru lost interest in IS and started another project, did he lose interest in that as well, or is he doing two series?

That project IIRC is a flop.

Can someone confirm this?

I can't confirm it for sure in terms of sales, but that other project (Afterschool Battlefield) was apparently so bad none of the Chinese fan translators are willing to pick it up. This is when your usual tsundere clones like Louise/Shana/Claire still gets translated too.

Well to be fair to those three, the novels at least have decent plots and character development. Izuru's previous track record shows that his characters remain static at 7 volumes in.

We're talking about his other novel

As said, it's scream QUALITY, no one want to translate it.

I.S. still get strong base despite that

This is what he wrote on the afterword.

-He has nothing to comment on volume 8, and that it was really hard.
-That he is planning on doing a love comedy theme for volume 9 since he wants to write it light heartedly. And he doesn't care about battle any more since it exhausts him too much.
-He wrote that he would start and write volume 9 early.

He may be joking(maybe), but I sure did slammed my laptop down when I read that.

I wish Izuru'd just shut up now. The more he talks the more it annoys me. And before I was oh so hoping for growth on his end. Huff... old dog and new tricks. They just never mix.

Its his book, let him talk:/ His content is all that matters.

The problem is that the content is mediocre at best. He has no basis on bragging other than he somehow begged a publisher to back him. And he has illustrators that can put his fantasies on graphic paper.

Yeah, often times his message to his fans either infuriating or ridiculously funny depending on how you take it.

He can brag about sales though, and the old publisher kick him because of hiatus, than anything else. In the end, money and polling talks and half-decent stories got shafted.

That said, he probably have to change editor regularly...
