39—Legend of Sun Knight Volume 1
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Epilogue—translated by lucathia (proofread by elisa & Arcedemius)
If things go according to plan, there should be three volumes of the spin-off, 39—a Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. The plot will be like the main series. Each volume will have its own story arc but will be connected to the next volume. The series will proceed in such a manner.
However, since the ending of Volume 1 is related to the central idea of the next volumes, the story arc won’t be completely depicted until the next volumes.
Although The Legend of Sun Knight has ended, the characters in the story will continue living on. My books will probably never have something like “And they lived happily ever after.”
It’s because the stories will continually be happening, with the characters encountering more obstacles and having to make new decisions. But they will also experience happy events, just like how life is filled with all kinds of flavors, from sweet to sour to bitter to spicy.
The most typical example is how Eclipse Hunter continued on as No Hero. Now, there is the new example of The Legend of Sun Knight continuing on with the spin-off, 39.
Even though the Demon King situation has been resolved, there will still be many worrying and happy situations in the upcoming days. It’s just that I haven’t written them all out.
It’s likely that only when the characters in the story are lying in their coffins will there no longer be any stories to tell.
However, there are also several cases where they have already been laid under the dirt and still crawled back out, such as Roland.
Because I heard many say that they didn’t want to see The Legend of Sun Knight end, I decided to write a spin-off to quench everyone’s thirst!
If I were to call the main series a story depicting the 38th generation’s friendship, then I would call the spin-off a depiction of how the 39th generation’s friendship is developed.
Following this, the spin-off will continue revealing several past events, just like how this volume covered Grisia and Adair’s first meeting and what happened to everyone after the Demon King event. Some of the characters from this volume will be further developed in the next volume, and at the same time, the story will continue advancing toward the future.
At what age will Elaro be when he is finally able to become the Sun Knight?
When will Grisia ever be free of the Demon King’s curse, or will it never happen?
Just where should the Death Monarch Roland go, or should he go to Hell… that is something I might not get to write! (Ah, don’t throw watermelons at me~)
In any case, the spin-off is for quenching the readers’ thirst, so I included a lot of small stories about past events. On top of continuing the 39th generation’s story, you are all welcome to come to my blog where I always open an after reading response corner, and tell me what you want to know about so-and-so’s past or future. If I am able to include it in the story, I will try my best to do so and write it out for everyone to read.
However, if I can’t do it, please forgive me. A story like the Twelve Holy Knights’ that can be passed on is one that has no limits in its interconnection. There will never be an “end” to it.
But come to think of it, the Twelve Holy Knights aren’t the only ones. My other stories are the same. Even if the author has stopped writing them, they will still continue forever and ever.
Actually, I should write a “Neverend” instead of an “End” at the end of my stories, but I wonder if that would get me killed by everyone when the next volume never appears even after a long wait. I think I’ll obediently write “End”… Ahh, but “Endless” would be more appropriate, right?
I wish that everyone’s dreams will always be “Endless.”
