Sorry for the bad news, but I’ve decided to drop Bloodlines Ablaze after I finish translating Volume 1. Volume 2 has a pseudo-underage scene (Mahoro is transformed with a de-aging spell, but he’s normal on the inside), and I do not want that kind of content on this site. I took a gamble with this brand-new series, and unfortunately it didn’t pay off. It’s too bad, because I really like the world-building in this series. I will post a summary of Volume 2 when I finish up the translation for Volume 1.

My quick impression of Volume 2: Lots of dramatics. And also no, why, fix this please. (But there’s no fixing some things.)

I was browsing Chil Chil for new novels to read and came across one titled The Tale of the Strongest Married Knight Couple. Then I read the reviews and found out that it wasn’t about two badass knights and their adventures fighting off bad guys together. 😭 Sadness. Now I want to read a story like that!

The publisher released the back cover image for Volume 2! I think it’s Oscar because his golden retriever is there too, and it looks like he may be vying for Mahoro’s affections in Volume 2. There’s also a peek at the insert image inside the book here and here. Has Mahoro become a little more assertive!?

I hadn’t noticed this for the longest time until the other day, but you can see Mahoro’s magic wand on the cover of Volume 1. It’s slotted into Mahoro’s gun holster. You can also see outlines of the wands in the character introductions for Leon and Oscar. There’s also a peek of the sword they use on Noah’s intro page.

Volume 2 is delayed to May 11th for the paperback, but the ebook version is still on track for a May 11th release. The final cover art + previews (but watch for spoilers!) are also released!
