The neverending story, Index, is now available with yet more content. The latest novel from the New Testament sequel series, volume 18, is ready for reading at baka tsuki.
That makes it the 42nd volume of just the mainline series alone. Add in the seven volumes of side stories and you get 49 volumes -- even longer than Xanth. Nor do I suspect the series is ending anytime soon, even with all this length. We'll probably be talking about Index New Testament volume 24 a few years from now.
But if you want to know if Touma and Mikoto ever get together, you'll just have to keep reading it, now won't you? It's not like they're ever going to make a season three. . .
