Could you lend me a hand with finding  a webpage where I'll be able to read the Vol 1-4 of the Light novel?

Thanks in advance

technically if you search around a bit and look for clues and can tolerate machine translations that arent proofread or anything you can translate in your browser upto volume 6 tho ill admit its very rough so dont claim i said it would be easy its not lol reading and understanding what you read are 2 different things lol

Or for the first 4 volumes you can check the backup blog of Solitary Translations, where everything from the original blog plus a bit of additional work on Magika no Kenshi is uploaded (if I'm not wrong, you still need the password to read DanMachi, but it's a very easy one; also, he's currently on hiatus, so no more updates).

Solitary Translations was taken down by DMCA, the only link i know for 1-4 volumes is this one:

I guess we might as well forget Vol 5 and 6 all over ...

And hope anime / manga can cover more ...

really sad  : ( this was my favorite LN after DxD....i was able to save  volumes 1-4 and even  vol 5 chapter 1 but i missed the second one, now its taken down... since the manga is way too fast and doesnt have much dialog like the LN, you cant expect much from it

I'm actually wondering if it's worth reading the LN even. I still have the first 4 volumes sitting on my hard drive, haven't read them yet. I've watched the anime up to the current point, and from what I've read that's pretty much already 1-4 and beyond now.

Yes, it's worth reading the LN. I have all 5 of the 'unofficial' translations and am currently buying the published LNs as they come available (vol 3 will be out on Amazon Aug 18). The manga is good, but a good bit is left out, glossed over, or the emphasis is wrong.

I'm reading the licensed translation. Yen Press recently released Volume 6 of their printings.

 

The anime covered Volumes 1-5, so Volume 6 was the first volume where I didn't already know what was going to happen.

 

In comparing the LN to the anime to the manga, the LN (obviously) holds closest to the story seeing as it is the source material for the other two medium. The manga is very good at following the LN because they aren't constrained by viewing seasons like anime are. The anime skipped sub-plots it deemed unnecessary for the overall story in order to fit Volumes 1 - 5 of the LN into 13 episodes and therefore is the least true to the LN.

Volume 7 is coming out tomorrow.. it costs 7 euros when bought through app so im quite satisfied with this setting.. 4 months between volumes sucks though..

Three months - the 2nd half of September to the 2nd half of December.

 

Volume 7 of  the LN is STEAMY - taking place almost entirely in Orario's "Red Light District"!
