anime passed the manga in ep 12. while the manga has yet about 1 chapter to finish adapting LN 9, anime is at the very beginning of LN 10. so the only option is the Light novel. which is best to read from the beginning since the anime took huge liberties and since the second half of s1 it diverges too much from the LN. OR since LN 6 because thats what got glossed over and skipped the most. LN volumes dont equal manga volumes, so they wont be at the same point if you were to compare them (manga is on volume 21 which is adapting LN 9) if you find something thats 300+ chapters long - thats the webnovel. and you want to stay away from that. LN has 22 volumes out so far, with around 18 chapters each.

Good to know! So I should begin LN 10 to be on track(ish) with the show? I’m new to this side of weebdom. Till now I’ve been anime only but the way this show has been I want more

I would highly, highly recommend starting at LN 6. So much of LN 6-9 got cut because of the lack of episodes. Some important foreshadowing moments as well as character development. If your reading the LN it's important to realize 2 things. Our boy in the LN is much darker and he has yet to re-establish the village.
