Rascal Does Not Dream Light Novels Enter Final Arc

Rascal Does Not Dream Light Novels Enter Final ArcThe popular light novel series Rascal Does Not Dream (Seishun Buta Yaro) from writer Hajime Kamoshida is entering its final arc. That’s the word from Kamoshida in the afterword of the latest volume, the 13th, which is titled Rascal Does Not Dream of Santa Claus.

The series kicked off in 2014 with Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, which was adapted into both manga and anime. Two films that adapt the eighth and ninth novels are being released in Japan this year. The first was released on June 23, and the second will be released in Q4.

It’s not clear how many volumes the final arc of Rascal will last, but it seems Kamoshida is getting ready to wrap things up in the Rascalverse. What’s your favorite volume so far?

Here’s how Yen Press describes the first volume:

Bunny girls do not live in libraries. This is simply common sense. And yet, that’s exactly where Sakuta runs into one. Wanting to find out more about the mystery surrounding this bunny girl and maybe get a little closer to her in the process, Sakuta launches an investigation to figure out what’s causing her to be invisible to everyone around them.
