Vol 12 was at the very top of the monthly ranking for bookwalker. Make of that what you will.

It was also 3rd on oricon rankings in its first week. High rankings Dont indicate high sales, hard numbers do.

The monthly rankings update as the month progresses and its now at tenth. Rakudai is right underneath it at 13 despite being out since about a week.

I'd like to think that Shinmai Maou will start a trend for other LN authors to follow.

How many LN series actually end the way Shinmai Maou has, a true harem without the "door slams shut before you see how they all got along" ending?

Do you know how this system works? Does this mean that Shinmai is consistently outselling Rakudai over that time period?

While interest in DxD has fizzled out over the years and it has sold 4,4 mill over 25 volumes and like 5 SS volumes.
Wow, Shinmai has actually managed to get more sales over time than the legendary Highschool DxD? That sounds like a real achievement on part of the author and the creative team backing him.

Does that mean that what you said about the voice actresses who appeared at the live stage event claiming that they could take on pseudonyms for an 18+ OVA continuation of the series were only joking? If so, why even bring it up? Only one of the voice actresses in the SMnT cast has regularly voiced 18+ works before. The others might not be able to afford the possible negative press they could get if they started doing 18+ voice work, since I don't believe they have solid fanbases yet.

Thank you very much! Strange that I can't find much fanart of her, though... =/

Why did you delete your post on the previous page and repost it here? If no one replied to it...that just means no one wants to reply to it.

I felt that I could have rephrased things better and take into account what some of the posters after me said.

Unfortunately, this forum doesn't have subforums for every series (unlike myanimelist) so side questions that don't interest many readers often get lost in the single threads devoted to most anime series here, unlike on MAL where side questions can get their own threads. However, I appreciate the experts here who do sometimes answer questions.

Volume 7 is the last one completely translated, so the wait is going to be long.

Crowdfunded vol 8 is almost done, another week or two and it'll be finished. Another TL reached out to me with the intent of translating the volumes (non-crowdfund).

Is Vol.12 for sure the last volume?? I was wondering since we haven't seen the girls' wedding or give birth. We also haven't seen Basara and his mother or mothers reunion. I feel that those 3 things are pretty important to the story, which is why I figured there would be at least 1 more volume to cover those 3 things.

In Magicka no kenshi
Spoiler for spoiler for ending:

The mother's thing, for me, is more deserving an extra volume.

Shiba told Chisato that some of the girls were pregnant. And in Magika,
Spoiler:


Volume 12 is an After Story. Volume 11 is the final main story Volume.

So it was officially stated that Vol.12 was the last, not just speculation?? I would have really liked seeing Basara interacting with his mothers, as well as Basara's girls and his mothers. I bet that would have been very interesting, especially in Chisato's case. I just feel that this series could have used a more definitive ending.

There's going to be an SS volume where they compile all the remaining shortstories from magazines, anime BDs etc. So there's a small, miniscule chance that they'll include the epilogue in it. But I honestly wouldn't count on it.

The same Epilogue we already have? It'd be great if the author gave us more info, like if Basara met his mothers or not and what happened if he did.

@Blakegriffin: Nope, sorry. It's not speculation.

Yeah, I really hope Basara doesn't get into an incestuous relationship with either or both of his mothers. They should remain his mothers.
