For the first novel as well as information about how I organized this and the purpose behind it.

Well, it took me several months, but I finally banged this out. This novel gave me fits for a bit because of how I typically format these with the characters appearing in the order of their appearance in the series. That just wasn’t working for this novel, so it finally occurred to me this week to shake up the order and voila! I got this done. So instead of starting with Lina and ending with Memphis, I’m starting with Memphis and saving Lina for last, because Lina’s the best. Enjoy!

Much thanks to all of the translators who worked on the latter half of the series who made this possible. Especially the one who translated the 15th one, found here.

Finally, the penultimate novel! The translation of which can be found here. How these storylines never made it into the anime is a grave injustice…

Plot

From here on out we are in the territory of plotlines that did not make it into the anime. What a shame this is cannot be overstated. In this volume, we meet Luke and Milina. Massive thanks to Spore for the fan translation found at
Baka-Tsuki, without which I would still be gnashing my teeth and wishing I knew Japanese.

Milina is kinda kick ass. )

Twelve years. For twelve years I have waited to read the remaining Slayers novels. Twelve years. Through them were moments of hope. First reading fan translations of the first two novels (and the first chapter of the third) by Yuu-chan on inverse.org. Then the announcement that TokyoPop was officially translating them. Signing petitions to encourage TokyoPop to continue translating them. Wondering if I would ever get to read what happens in the later novels. Yes, there are plot summaries, but I really don't understand things when I read summaries. I have to see it unfold.

Slowly translations would pop up of the later novels, and I was always so grateful to read them. And now finally I learn that three I've never read before translated, with word that the fifteenth and final will be translated by August. This has just been an incredible week for me because I was not sure I would ever see it happen. As more time passed it seemed more likely that people would just loose interest and move onto other things. So to finally see how things unfold after waiting 12 years...words just cannot describe how finally getting to read them has been.

I did have to go more slowly than I liked. I was also hit with a respiratory infection this week, that left me feeling crappy but not too crappy to call into work sick. So when I was home I was extremely tired and exhausted. But I've finally caught up to the fourteenth one and I am ready to read the fifteenth!

Spoilers! Spoilers! And more spoilers and random thoughts. )
