Ew, Tokyopop again? Their novel translations are horrifying. The Twelve Kingdoms Novel 3 had a typo or a grammatical error every two to three pages. Rolling Eyes

THANK. GOD.

Now maybe someday we can get the books that go past TSR's storyline.

Words cannot describe how pissed off I was when I though they were gonna give up on it after volume 3, which only went to the end of the original season!

TWO YEARS IS TOO DAMN LONG, TP! I'm still buying this series because I love it so very, VERY much, but you can bet your ass I'm not gonna buy any other light novel under your name.

...yen press has all the other good books, anyway.

Most excellent! This series is among my very favorites and I had been under the impression that the novels were a dead horse.

I'm not going to bitch about how long it's taken 'cause I'm actually going to be able to get them now.

Hopefully this means that TP will continue the series past 4 & 5.

Freaking yes.
I've known for a little bit about Volume 4 getting released in February, but having both of them released at once is just icing. -now puts more effort into finding a cheap copy of Volume 3-

Jeez, I thought they had totally dropped this and/or lost the license. This is worse than what they did to the Slayers novels. I mean, I'm happy that I'll be able to read this arc, but I still have no hope for anything past this...

About time, too! Very Happy

Glad they're releasing the entire arc in one volume, that would've been a painful cliffhanger... (Even though we know what happens, via the Second Raid.)

FINALLY. Now if only they can get rid of those huge and ridiculous looking bullet-hole page numbers that overlap the main text.

Can we all get on the line with Tokyopop and gnash our teeth at them to PROPERLY translate the book this time? And to make better edits? I hear the first 3 were littered with typos. Not something I want.

Wow, first time I heard of something come off such a long hiatus to finish up! Typos or not, be glad and fortunate that they are coming!

Now if the first three could be re-printed, I'd actually be excited!

Hell yes! This is amazing! I own the first three, and they are awesome even after watching the anime.

-hasn't watched Second Raid yet- So reading the novels will be my first experience.

Was there really that many typos? I have the first two, and I hardly found any. Perhaps one or two, but that many isn't so bad. Hmm...perhaps I need to give them another read-over.
