The first translations for volume 7 of Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash just released on j-novel club and has started to enter uncharted territory.
For our small party of ‘heroes’, they’ve left the known world of grimgar, their friends and allies behind. Every step they take is new exploration, not just retracing the steps of those who have gone before them. And in the first chapter, Haru the ever cautious leader is freaking out, and for good reason. They’ve entered a world without light and it sounds terrifying.
For myself, volume 6 was the edge of my knowledge. I’ve read the fan-translations (nanodesu and TOM) and the summaries up to volume 6. I honestly haven’t a clue what’s going to happen in the coming chapters, and they can’t come fast enough.
I paused at this cover. Normally I immediately skip on to actually read the story, but this cover got my attention. No more of the light reds and pinks. Everything has more of a sombre blue cast. (Things are about to get real. Maybe?)
I can’t wait to get the this volume’s hardcopy in my hands. The illustrations!
For any fans of the anime who have yet to read the light novels, get to it! You don’t know what you’re missing out!
