Light novel creator Chūgaku Akamatsu revealed on Thursday that a new Aria the Scarlet Ammo Project is in the works. Akamatsu posted an image on Twitter of the novel's 16th volume that will ship in Japan on December 25. The volume's wraparound jacket band announces the project and asks fans to wait for more news.
The story takes place in Tokyo Butei High School, a special school where armed detectives — "Butei" — are trained to use weapons. Kinji Tōyama is a second-year-student who has a special ability, but he keeps it a secret to maintain an ordinary, peaceful life. However, when he gets caught in a bombing on the way to school, he encounters H. Aria Kanzaki, the most powerful S-Rank Butei student in Assault Studies.
