Great news. I don't remember them stating that they had only licensed the first six novels, and seeing no solicitations beyond Vol. 6 was pointed out to me by another forum user.

I'll continue to purchase these as they come out.

Good, on both fronts, since that's all material beyond the animation.

Hopefully the excellent translation will not suffer from the new schedule as I very much liked the translations of the first five books.

Yay! I didn't realize they had only licensed through 6, so good to know they are continuing it. Guess that means it is selling well Very Happy Speeding it up to 3 a year means all 3 will be out with a year! Yay!

Now if they would only do the same speed up for Kieli too Very Happy

Definitely going to keep buying this excellent reading material. Should sales not drop, then hopefully they will keep licensing more.

I intend to start buying this series as soon as I'm caught up with a few more things. I want to support every English light novel release I possibly can. Glad to hear they're continuing it.

This is excellent news. Spice and Wolf is one of my top favorite series and with Yen licensing it up to volume 9 that leaves 7 volumes to go to complete it, plus 3 epilogue chapters. More than halfway there - here's hoping they decide to pick up the rest.

I second that motion. Kieli seems to be having distribution issues, though. Volume 6 was released last week but not many outlets have it in stock yet.
