Toaru Majutsu no Index:Volume11 Afterword
To the readers who collected each book in this series, it has been a while.
To the readers who bought all 11 books at one go, nice to meet you.
I'm Kamachi Kazuma.
Though I kept saying that I'm rather free, it's now the 11th book. This time, that...there's no change in season, and the penalty game has to be delayed. This time, it's a holiday trip. Not Kanzaki Kaori, but the other Amakusa members. Though it's a fleet battle, it's not a cannon war, but fire boats. This really is a changeup that slightly differs from the norm.
As for the scenario, there should be a certain organisation behind it. A petite girl and tall girl that appeared once have joined in as main characters this time. In a complete sense, there's a lot less new characters, but because of that, there's a lot more excitement to this story.
On the magic side, those are mainly based on two certain organisations. Others include the legend of the Cross, and a slight mention of the Twelve Apostles.
The so called fireboats aren't fabricated, in reality, such a tactic existed. That was before the real torpedo was unveiled. The English Navy seemed like they really stuffed the large ships with gunpowder, and rushed in with the ships unmanned. Though that battle had to be won, it was truly a large scale.
To Haimura-sensei, who is in charge of illustrations, and Miki-sensei, who's in charge of printing, I'm sorry that I've been causing trouble to you two often. Because of the change in story, it probably took a long time to search for information. It's been hard on you two. And to Miss Yoshimi and Miss Fukushima Yuuko, who were supervising the Italian language, allow me to express my thanks.
At the same time, I would like to thank all the readers. I'm grateful that everyone read on till the last page.
And now, this volume ends here.
I hope you'll continue to read the next volume.
At this moment, let me sign off first.
There'll definitely be a change of seasons and the punishment game next time!
