10th Haganai Novel Volume Has No In-Story Art by Buriki

Artist only draws cover image, opening color art & writes that he is "tired out"

The 10th volume of Yomi Hirasaka's Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (Haganai) light novel series shipped on Thursday, but the volume features no art by series illustrator Buriki in the actual text. Buriki did draw the cover illustration and the color art at the beginning of the volume. In the creator comments, Buriki only wrote one phrase: “I'm tired out.”

Earlier this year, Buriki's Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Buriki Art Works book was delayed until further notice. After the Haganai NEXT anime's DVD and Blu-ray disc releases were delayed by four months, they were no longer listed with art by Buriki.

The story begins with Kodaka — a half-Japanese/half-British transfer student whose delinquent-like blonde hair and fierce eyes scare people — and a seemingly perpetually sullen girl named Yozora. The two decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for misfits with hardly any friends.

The light novel series inspired two television anime, video anime spinoffs, and a live-action film.
