Is the Arifureta light novel over? Will it receive an epilogue?

Arifureta is one of the most successful harem isekai out there, all due to its omnipotent anti-hero protagonist.

Unlike most isekai-d people, Hajime’s only aim is to find a way back home, giving it a realistic perspective. The anti-hero does end up performing some heroic feats, but his will to leave the fantasy world never wavers.

Yesterday, this brilliant light novel, Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest, officially ended with the release of its 13th volume. However, the question remains: Will it have an epilogue?

As the light novel series ended, not only fans but also the author Ryo Shirakome couldn’t stop thinking about what would come next. Hajime and his wives finally have their happy endings, so is this it? Or will a new adventure begin shortly?

Ryo says he wishes to see the characters in an epilogue story drawn by the novel’s illustrator Takayaki. He mentions that it’s not confirmed yet, so don’t get your hopes up, but fans can expect more of Arifureta in the future.

However, this epilogue may not be an action-filled thriller like many want. Rather, this story would be more of a wrap-up and will show Hajime, Yue, and the others’ lives in Japan.

Since Japan is the real world and a normal place without magical dangers, Hajime and his party will spend their days in peace. Even if a crisis does fall upon them, the team is strong enough to handle it within seconds.

Due to this, the epilogue might be more of a chilled-out wrap-up story where they show Hajime and his wives adapting to everyday life. Not to forget, Hajime eventually intends to go down as a family man and raise children, so we might not get many adventures.

However, we will surely get some wholesome scenes, playful banter between the characters, and more.

So to answer the question, Arifureta might have an epilogue story, but it all depends on Ryo and whether he takes the idea forward.

As for us fans, we’d love to see Hajime leading a happy life five years after the main story’s conclusion.
