Bladedance of Elementalers (精霊使いの(ブレイド)(ダンス), Seirei Tsukai no Kenbu(Burēdo Dansu)?) is a Japanese light novel series written by Yū Shimizu and illustrated by three different illustrators: Sakura Hanpen for Volumes 1-13, Yūji Nimura for Volumes 14-16, and Kohada Shimesada for Volumes 17-20. The light novel is published by Media Factory under their MF Bunko J imprint from December 14, 2010 to March 25, 2019. The series has also spawned both a manga adaptation and an anime series.

HistoryEdit

The first volume of the series was published on December 14, 2010. Due to increasingly worsening health, Sakura Hanpen was unable to continue illustrating for the series and the torch was passed to Yūji Nimura, starting with the fourteenth volume.[1] Due to unknown personal circumstances, Yūji Nimura was unable to continue illustrating and the torch was passed to Kohada Shimesada, starting from the seventeenth volume.[2] The series reached its completion with the twentieth release, ending an almost nine-year run.[3]
