*3. 20,919 *20,919 IS: Infinite Stratos Vol.11

Holy shit! IS is back!! Hope he'll continue from now on. I want to see a Battle School Harem get fully adapted. This one is popular so it has the chance since its the original first to make to genre popular.

Oh wow Danmachi's in the lead.

Pretty sure its still ongoing as far as I'm concerned.


I'm actually pretty sure I heard a couple years ago about how it basicly died because of some big problems and the author getting pissed or something like that?
I think it got picked up again with the author writing something for it with the intention to restart it... I think when the OVA happened, which would be about 3-4 years ago and everyone was talking about how that's just a one-time thing and there's no way he's going to keep writing...

iirc? So I'm actually kind of surprised as well but I never kept up with the series myself so maybe people a bit more into it did know that it didn't look that grim

mmh, google says vol 10 was published 2015/7/23 so maybe not that bad. That's "only" 2 years ago

Ohhhh I didn't actually knew that. Hmm, well despite the details not being further explained as to why the author got pissed I can somewhat get it? But at the same time I don't really get it.

But yeah it's still surprising in all honesty in regards about this selling decently despite all of that.

Nice to see Okitegami Kyouko no Urabyoushi up there. I'm definitely interested in reading the novel version in the future.

Is arifureta actually a decent read? It seems selling well though so maybe yes?

No, it's complete trash. It's an edgelord fest, first 20~ chapters were decent and had potential but went all downhill.

It's garbage.

Unless you like garbage would not recommend.

That's the case apparently.

Yeah true. Ehhh, I mean I dislike the anime (It WAS hate but the hate was just decreasing as the years passed by honestly) but yeah, it's more like "Eh, whatever." At least in my case. xP But its still selling somehow decently which is surprising ._. well, Japan thing I guess.
Yeah I too am pretty surprised by the sales, damn shame so many people waste their money on this.
