We're not going to have to wait another eight years for the next Banner of the Stars LN are we?
I just want my good end already.
Prepare to make these threads for the rest of your life
I don't even care if they make a timeskip to when Jinto & Lafiel are a qt old couple, I just want a cute as fuck ending.
I want Lafiel to become Empress and brutally crush the Three Nations Alliance.
Then she and Jinto can get married and have lots and lots of babies.
From what I've heard Spoor wasn't even mentioned in the last book at all.
That upsets me.
God I hope not, I want these two to actually make out.
As of BotS III they were already acting like a married couple but yeah, it would be nice to see some intimacy between them.
Mines: The anime
>Banner of the Stars
It's like you guys forget that Jinto is going to die long before Lafiel even reaches middle age.
tragic love stories are the best though
Yeah- no thanks.
I love the story, but whenever I see the two together I can't help but imagine what a doomed relationship the two will have. By the age of 40 Jinto will be feeling his age, at 60 he might start seeing signs of mental degeneration; while Lafiel will look on in dejected sorrow, practically a teenager by the standards of her race and will be youthful and spry for centuries to come.
Even the most kind and loving person would feel resentment towards someone pinning them in place for years, the stagnation of his twilight years would wear on her, and given a couple decades after his death she'll get past whatever lingering affection she had for the dead human and move on with her life.
The most Jinto can ever hope to aspire to is to be her several decade long fling at the beginning of her life, when their interactions won't even aspire to a quarter of her life experiences after his death.
They spelled it out so damn much I'm almost convinced its either not going to happen at all or shes going to die first.
Lafiel isn't even a teenager anymore at this point in the story. She's not a child, she just has an awful long time to be an adult.
And the Abh only live to almost 200 before their brains start to break down, even if their bodies remain physically healthy.
Only 200 years before they start feeling the effects of old age, and I thought they died typically after 400~ years.
Point is, she'll be still a teenager by human standards in comparison to her Abh lifespan when Jinto will be entering old age.
If they get into a relationship the most they have to look forward to is a couple decades of happiness before the affair devolves into tragedy and sorrow, and then Lafiel has a few years of grief before moving on with her life.
Frankly speaking, I wish the author would write in some way to prolong Jinto's lifespan. Hate how heavily he underscores the fact that theirs will be a short lived affair if it reaches that point.
What happened in the latest LN with regards to Jinto and Lafiel's relationship and anything that might have affected it?
>Only 200 years before they start feeling the effects of old age, and I thought they died typically after 400~ years.
I read that they get super dementia if they live past 200.
>If they get into a relationship
They already are in one.
Lafiel wept publicly when she recovered Jinto from that prison colony planet, even though she's been taught her entire life that, as a member of the Imperial clan, she was never to let anyone see her cry.
And in BotS III she said something about Jinto being her whole world.
Spoor is a broken wreck, no point talking about her.
That sounds bad
>Lafiel wept publicly when she recovered Jinto from that prison colony planet, even though she's been taught her entire life that, as a member of the Imperial clan, she was never to let anyone see her cry.
Do the Imperial clan particularly care who she might choose as a mate?
>at 60 he might start seeing signs of mental degeneration
In super space science medical future? not bloody likely. He'll start looking old sure but signs of mental degradation will probably crop up in his 90s. If he remains totally genetically unaltered he'll probably live to be 110+.
Try half a century. People don't become sad useless sacks once they go past 60 you know.
The fact that he underscores it so much combined with the technology to extend life is present in universe has half convinced me that he keeps bringing it up to subvert expectations later on. That's just me being optimistic though.
Not really, asides from the fact that Jinto himself is pretty high up in the nobility.
110 is pushing it but yeah even today people are rather healthy at the age of 60.
All I've heard is that the Hania Federation betrays the Humankind Empire Abh and attacks Lakfakalle, killing Lafiel's grandmother Empress Ramaj who refused to flee the city. The Abriel guy who annexed Jinto's homeworld at the start of Crest of the Stars succeeds her as Emperor, and Lafiel gets a ship much bigger than her previous Roil-class assault ships.
>That sounds bad
It's why a lifespan is genetically programmed into them so they pass on before it starts to happen
>Do the Imperial clan particularly care who she might choose as a mate?
Pretty sure it's a nonfactor. Lafiel's mother was of a lower rank than Jinto is now I'm pretty sure. It's also apparently been hinted that Lafiel's dad had a hand in them getting together.
Didn't the capital have massive shipyards? This is going to be deal a large blow to how fast the Abh can build up their fleets.
>Do the Imperial clan particularly care who she might choose as a mate?
She seems to be a ways up the Abriel hierarchy so I doubt anyone would dare to second guess her in regards to such personal matters.
Besides Jinto is an Abh noble himself.
It has already been mentioned.
An Alliance military police officer from the United Mankind who led the search for Jinto and Lafiel in Sufugnoff. He belonged to the Silejia people who practiced genetic anti-aging manipulation before their annexation by the United Mankind; despite looking like a young man in his twenties, he is in reality around fifty years old. Because the United Mankind bans genetic manipulation, he is therefore much despised by most citizens of the United Mankind and is prevented from rising amongst the ranks of the military. This is one of the causes of his bitter hatred against the Abhs. He forced Entryua to accompany him and use local police resources in seeking for the Abh pair.
He was that nutcase shooting at the coffin rockets at the end of Crest.
110 is the optimistic figure I came up with taking into account more advanced space-age medical treatments.
If Lafiel was a rice dish she would be Pilafiel.
>This is going to be deal a large blow to how fast the Abh can build up their fleets.
I've actually heard that the loss of the capital is good for the Abh militarily.
See, because of the way the Sord network works, it was impossible to know where an enemy attack would approach the capital from. Now that the Abh navy is no longer devoting a considerable portion of its strength to defending the capital they'll really be able to go all out.
Weren't they gaining the lead in the war at this point? If anything it may have evened the playing field.

>I will never be Admiral Spoor's adjutant

it hurts to live /a/
She was one of the best characters. I'll probably cry a little when she dies.
I love the uniforms.
I love the ship designs.
Is it bad that I enjoyed Lafiel's dub voice?
Both are pretty amazing
Not really. Lafiel's dub voice good. It was Jinto's voice I couldn't stand in the dub.
I've not seen this artwork before.
There's very little from this series on pixiv.
If I ever win the lottery or become a millionaire I promise you /a/ I will personally fund a remake and continuation of this story.
I don't understand, why is anti-aging manipulation outlawed when it is exactly what the Abhs did?
>I don't understand, why is anti-aging manipulation outlawed when it is exactly what the Abhs did?
Probably because it's what the Abh did. There's plenty of prejudice against the space Elves.
You are fucking dumb
It's outlawed by the United Mankind. Genetic engineering created the evil Abh therefore it is a menace to society. UM citizens are constantly fed propaganda that the Abh are just genetically modified machines revolting against their masters.
These ships are all so fucking cool.
But of course. How could it be possibly be advantageous for the Abh to have twice as many ships now available for offense?
Battle damage is a lost art.
The ship design is nice at least.
Whoops, that's right, United Mankind doesn't exactly contain the Abh.
So there is a mechanism for Jinto's lifespan to be prolonged introduced in the series?
The technology exists yes but it doesn't seem in keeping with Jinto's character to undergo the procedure just for the sake of it. He's a proud Lander/Abh.
I can see it happening if he's dying or something and the procedure to save him will have the side effecting of extending his life though.
translit it weebs
See here >>100204084
ted or not but going by the fact that he's physically aged to his 20's I'd be willing to guess it
I would sell out every last one of you faggots if it meant that I could go with Lafiel.
Don't know where half my sentence went. Meant to say that it is never reveleled if Kyle was born a non aging citizen or later converted to one but going by the fact that he's physically aged to his 20's I'd be willing to guess it was done later in his life.
well I'd sell you out first
I can see that too, and hopefully something like that happens.
But otherwise, I would opt for an operation to get an extended lifespan if it meant I could spend another century with my waifu.
I don't think so.
Last bit of monologue from Jinto in Crest
>>I'll be getting old. I'll only have half your lifespan.
>>But I will be by your side as much as I can
>>Whether it be the day you first take the Jade throne...
>>...or it be the day you vanish into Plane Space....
>>I will be by your side.
He truly loves Lafiel. If given the chance to increase his life he'd probably take it so Lafiel wouldn't spend the 100 years after his death alone.
I had the latest light novel spoiled on /m/ of all places. Has a new book been announced yet?
Will we have a translation for the latest book this year?
>Will we have a translation for the latest book this year?
none of the BotS novels have been translated, only CotS
apparently the author is a kanji purist and the series' technobabble is beyond all but the most competent translators who are totally uninterested in this series
I mean fan translated even if it is somewhat butchered I"ll take something over nothing
well apparently there are awful machine translations and japanese -> chinese -> english translations out there
"somewhat" isn't an option here. you can wish for badly butchered, eventually, or >>100208306
