Well it was yuNS who was translating it, but he/she is busy now with translating the main series in another "fanfic" site. I have no idea why he/she also listed it as "completed" lol

Why isn't this its own series? The Japanese title has "Zoku" or "Continued" in it like Oregairu's sequel.

This so-called "4th volume" actually happens in between volume 8-9 and relates to volume 10. Technically it's a sequel to Bakuen wo! spin-off, but it's actually different, because the first 3 is a prequel while this one is a story that happens in between the main stories, filling the gap of what Megumin was doing.

Yup, you can see from the cover that there's Iris, Megumin and Yunyun. And if you read Continued spinoff, you'd know why.

Ah yeah, that's why I was wondering abt why Iris popped up in the cover, I thought it was only being released online or something like that. Well yeah ofc that's necessary for the current vol 10.

It was actually released online up to chapter 4, before making its way to publications to commemorate Iris and Megumin's popularity. I believe there's 5 chapters right? I'm not sure. So I think people have to buy the LN to know the ending to the story. So technically it's a Web Novel turned Light Novel series.

Hmm I see, that makes sense.

>to commemorate Iris's popularity

Glad that this is still selling. Waiting patiently for anime adaptation. Just want to see Bearbro in action.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.
