Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The author mentioned in the afterwords that Volume 2 was originally intended to be the second chapter of Light Novel Volume 1. This was because he had not known how short light novels were, and was scolded for trying to publish a 900-page book.
- Due to suffering from illness, Yuu Kamiya's wife Mashiro Hiiragi, a manga artist, drew some of the illustrations in this particular volume.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The colored image spread of the girls has been censored per Wikia's request. Those who are familiar with the story would know that their private parts were removed in the Materialization Shiritori game through magic, but for the benefit of those who are unaware, it will remain censored.
