20th volume of Noboru Yamaguchi's 4.5-million-copy light novel series ships on Friday

Author Noboru Yamaguchi is ending the Zero no Tsukaima (The Familiar of Zero) light novel series in the 22nd volume in 2012. The 20th volume (pictured at right) is shipping in Japan on February 25, and the series has 4.5 million copies in print. The story follows a budding magician, nicknamed "Louise the Zero" due to her initial ineptness at magic, who accidentally summoned a boy from Earth as her familiar.

There have been three television anime series based on the light novel series, and Geneon Entertainment (USA) Inc. released the first series on DVD in North America. Later, Funimation acquired the rights after Geneon stopped distributing anime in North America.
