I am the author, Yuki Ryou. Thank you very much for taking the time to read the seventh volume of my book.
Thanks to all of you who always read my work, I am able to have this opportunity to greet you again. Also, the second volume of the comic, which was released in June, has been reprinted following the first volume. I would also like to thank you for this.
In the revision process, the basic scope of the story is decided on the web version, and then the plot is created, and the additions are decided. However, when I tried to write it, I found that, strangely enough, the volume of additions was as large as in the previous editions. Although I still have problems with my own planning, I was able to write many of the stories I wanted to write in this volume. I was able to pack a lot into the pages again, such as Warren’s collapse and Ain’s journey to the magic city.
I hope you enjoyed this seventh volume.
Now, let me continue to introduce the next volume──but before that, I would like to make a report first.
The story of Ain, up to this point, has been positioned as a “boyhood” story, and the conclusion of the story was scheduled to be in volume 8…
Volume 8 will be released as soon as Volume 7 is released!
Volume 8 begins with the army led by Ain attacking the mainland of Heim to settle the ongoing feud with the red fox.
The battle against Heim awaits them and the movements of Oz, who continues to be active in the dark──.
Please enjoy the last trial of Ain’s “boyhood.”
──Finally, I would like to thank all of you for your support.
Thanks to many people’s help, I could make the seventh volume into a book.
I want to thank Naruse-sensei again for his wonderful illustrations. I am also grateful to the book designer for the beautiful cover.
I would also like to thank my two editors and everyone involved in the bookbinding process.
I would also like to thank all the people involved in the book, including the bookstores and the distributors who put “Maseki Gurume” on the shelves.
Thanks to all of you, I was able to deliver the book to readers like this.
Thank you very much.
And most of all, to the readers, thank you again.
I hope to see you again in Volume 8, which will conclude Ain’s “boyhood,” and I would like to conclude my greetings for Volume 7.
Please continue to enjoy “The Magic Stone Gourmet” and your support for Yuki Ryou.
