I finished the two series and promptly became depressed after finding they never made more seasons (this happened with the HBO Rome series as well). BUT I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS

Are the light novels worth reading? Also is the 6th one I start with?
>>
Read 1-17, soak in every detail that wasn't in the anime.
>>
Start with 1.

but I can't go through all those scenes again my heart can only stretch so far
>>
spoiler alert:

Rome falls
Barbarians win
>>
Anime covered 1,2,3,5 for LN. I'd suggest read all anyways,
>>
I started on 6, but you must read them.

Also Alexander was gay

Bet you can't tell me exactly how it happens.

It's not about the destination, it is about the journey. It is worth reading just to enjoy the trip, it doesn't matter how it ends.

It ends with Kraft and Holo opening a hot spring inn, getting married, having a kid, and naming the inn Spice and Wolf.

Splitting the Roman empire fucked the western half because it had none of the wealth and all of the abandoned farms. Gradual decay, lots of infighting, the Roman army became more and more dependent on barbarian mercenaries, after the barbarian mercenaries found out they couldn't get paid they went berserk and launched a ten-year rampage climaxing in the first destruction of Rome, there were a few more over the next couple decades until a barbarian kicked out the final emperor (ironically named Little Augustus)
>>
The rest of the story sucks. You're better off not reading it.
>>
The later novels are directionless, have less merchant/business shenanigans, and it's clear the author was pulling stories out of his ass because he didn't know how to properly end the series.

I hate to say it, but I'm glad they stopped adapting the novels to anime where they did.
>>

I have read every volume of the History of the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire, so I tell you, but there is no way to do it with post limits and thread limits, on a board like /a/, and with the amount of motivation I have.
>>
OP, start reading the light novels beginning at ch. 6, put the OST on and read. It's great after you finish the anime, you can picture a lot of things vividly.

I liked the OST from the anime, the nice melancholic string sections reminded me of this cartoon I watched as a kid. A kids one like Winnie the Pooh.
