The light novel sold a total of 304,721 units in the first half of 2016, and previously received a 12-episode TV anime adaptation by studio Madhouse in Spring 2014. In addition to the anime, the series also received a manga adaptation in 2013, drawn by Mashiro Hiiragi.

Yen Press and Sentai Filmworks licensed the light novel and anime, respectively, for North American release, with the second light novel volume to be released on July 21. The TV series was also simulcast on Crunchyroll.

Could be original. Or could be a volume 4-5 rushed. Or... volume 6. If it's volume 6, then that's awesome.

how can you be so sure

Sure about what? that the chocie is awesome or that it will be volume 6?
If the later then it was already officially confirmed. If the former then volume 6 is the perfect choice for a movie, and it's by far the best volume of this franchise quality wise. So of course it's an awesome choice for a NGNL movie. On top of this putting volume 6 as a stand alone movie solves a proble mthat was making having a second season of NGNL difficult, now with the volume 6 put as a movie this opens the door for a second season, so lots of benefits for the fans of NGNL (I'm personally not really interested in a second season, contrary to the movie, but fans will definitely like the fact that making a movie out of volume 6 makes the possibility of a second season far more realistic than it was until now)

The announcement shows an image of the two main characters of the 6th volume.
(And it was confirmed later)

the wait has been killing me too. I bet after I watch this I'll be thirsty for more like when I 1st finished the anime I went directly to the 3rd light novel; so after watching this movie I'll go straight to the 7th LN


The 7th ln is pretty confusing to be honest. The sixth one (one they are adapting into a movie) is the best light novel in the series, in my opinion. It finally explains the premise and everything before Sora and Shiro came and how Tet came to be.

Sweet yeah I remember when I started reading the light novels after I finished the anime not all the volumes out at the time were fully translated yet, so I only read up to 5 and a half volumes.

So even though I haven't finished it from where I'm at I think this movie is going to be amazing~

Would have liked a new season but hey that's cool.

Hyped for it!
I am pretty much alright with it that it's 'just' a movie as long it's not a recap of the first season I'll be looking forward to it.

Okay here is what i'm concerned about. It say that it will be adapting volumes 6 however the first season of the anime covered volumes 1-3. Are they just cutting out the 4th and 5th volumes or is there something coming before it. I 'd rather no have a huge gap in the story.
As has been said tons of times in this thread already, volume 6 is a prequel story taking place several thousand years prior to the events of the first season, so it's fairly standalone. You don't need to read volumes 4 & 5 first
Oh, okay sorry. I wasn't aware of that.
