Rascal Does Not Dream Light Novels Near Conclusion

Rascal Does Not Dream Light Novels Near ConclusionThe Rascal Does Not Dream series of light novels, which have been adapted into a popular anime TV/film franchise, are nearing their end. That’s the word from Dengeki Bunko, the publishing label behind the series by Hajime Kamoshida.

The 14th and 15th volumes of the light novel series will hit shelves in Japan on August 9 and October 10, respectively. They’re called Rascal Does Not Dream of a Girlfriend and Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dear Friend. Both novels will also be released in special editions with drama CDs included.

The novels first hit stands with Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai back in 2014, meaning the series is a decade old this year.

Here’s how Yen Press describes the first novel:

Bunny girls do not live in libraries. This is simply common sense. And yet, that’s exactly where Sakuta finds one in the wild. More bewildering is who the bunny girl is: Mai Sakurajima, a girl one year older than Sakuta, famous at their school for her acting career even though she’s currently on break. To top it all off, it seems like no one else in the library can see Mai at all, no matter what she does or…wears. Wanting to find out more about this mystery and maybe get a little closer to this beautiful upperclassman in the process, Sakuta launches an investigation to discover why an unforgettable bunny girl keeps becoming totally invisible.
