I haven't been able to find any evidence that this book (volume 6) existed or exists. The original only had five volumes, the official page only has five volumes and the ISBN on that book (which has no cover and a description in Japanese, despite being an English edition) brings up links such as this one:

which either list the book (as an English book) as coming out in 2015 or 2035. Can this book be removed? Thanks!

If this book does not exist if clearly was planned work as it is listed in several sources e.g.

Even if the book was cancelled, which would be hard to prove without contacting author or publisher, it would be still considered a valid book entry.

Furthermore deleting it completely would only result in re-importing this entry to the database and it should not be marked as Not a Book record in my opinion.

You might try co contact support, but I highly doubt that they would NAB this record.
