The final arc is officially about to begin for Labo Asai’s Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryu to Odoru: Dances with the Dragons light novels. According to Shogakukan’s listing of the series’s 22nd volume, this collection will mark the beginning of the last main storyline. 

Volume 22 ships in Japan on December 20, kicking off a three-month continuous publication for the final arc. The 23rd volume will follow right behind it on January 18, 2023. These volumes mark the first time for the series to release a new volume since the 21st was published in March 2018.
