Sou Yurugi, the editor-in-chief for the MF Bunko J imprint of Kadokawa (Media Factory), announced on Thursday that the imprint has decided to continue the Zero no Tsukaima (The Familiar of Zero) light novel series.

Author Noboru Yamaguchi was planning the end of the light novel series before he passed away due to cancer in 2013. According to MF Bunko J, he dictated the remaining plot of the series, including its ending, from his sickbed and entrusted it to the editors.

The editors acknowledged that the publisher has received a steady stream of requests to continue the series from fans, and added that the late novelist's family also expressed their desire that the series be completed.

Media Factory published the 20th of 22 planned volumes in February of 2011. Zero no Tsukaima F, the fourth and final anime series, premiered in 2012.
