Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash Volume 5
“…So, this thing, what do you think it is?”
It has now been some months since the party came to the Wonder Hole. Haruhiro and his companions have been slowly but steadily improving their skills as they clear the labyrinth. One day, while exploring, they find a “hole” they’ve never seen before. A hole that, as far as they know… wasn’t there when they passed through the area three days earlier. It may lead to a new and unexplored area, which would be highly profitable for them if they are the first to set foot in it. Haruhiro is hesitant on whether to go inside or not, but Team Tokimune, a group known for being full of eccentrics, but still highly capable, appear and propose exploring it together.
The tale of adventure born from the ashes continues with new encounters.

Accel World 11
The Acceleration Research Society, a mysterious organization maneuvering in secret, makes their headquarters at the top of Tokyo Midtown Tower, where the Archangel Metatron is enshrined. This completely invincible Legend-class Enemy guards the Society from all would-be attackers, and so the Seven Kings meet in order to devise some means to defeat the Enemy and the Acceleration Research Society along with it.
The secret plan they come up with necessitates that Silver Crow gain a new ability, Theoretical Mirror.
Although he’s been ordered to obtain this ability–which can withstand even the instant death of Metatron’s ultimate laser–abilities require action to trigger their manifestation, in contrast with the way Incarnate techniques are generated through the imagination. Thus, Haruyuki’s powerful imagination won’t help him this time!
While Haruyuki is stumped at how to even begin this difficult task, Ardor Maiden (a.k.a. Utai Shinomiya) begins relating a sad past…
