no. Ahiru no Sora at vol.23.


Regardless, I've only seen up to chapter 20 released here. Unless there are english releases that I'm not aware of.

Kind of surprised to see Fairy Tail up that high. The recent chapters have been lackluster, if anything.

Ahiru no Sora at vol. 24 vol. 23!? I hope the scanlators can speed up releases for it then. :(

Edit: fixed. ...
