Toaru Majutsu no Index:Volume17 Afterword
To those who have bought the books one at a time: Welcome back.
To those that have bought and then read through all 19 books: Welcome.
This is Kamachi Kazuma.
Volume 17 contained tons of England which had been mentioned and seen here and there previously. With the royal family, the knights, the church, England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the magic cabals, and even the dangerous actions between nations, a lot was packed into this volume.
As this was a story about England, it of course had knights and princesses in it.
St. George is the English name of a real saint. With the help of Haimura-san, the story in the opening art and the main text was based on the real legend with some changes to fit more with the English knights and to make it more picture book-like.
By the way, (and a certain character mentions this a bit) the historical St. George’s sword was apparently not named Ascalon and the knight and princess outfits were made more picture book-like. Just think of it as a story from a picture book from within the world of the series.
Many thanks to my illustrator Haimura-san and my editor Miki-san. I am truly thankful that they went along with my special experiment with the opening art.
I would also like to thank all of the readers. Thanks to all of your support as you flip through these pages, it looks like I’ll be able to write a 20th book.
And now you will be closing the pages.
I pray that you will be able to take the 20th volume in to your hands.
And I will lay my pen down for now.
Next up is the battle between knight and mercenary!!
