My internet's been out because of snow so I decided to work on my LN backlog (downloaded several PDFs). I just finished Hakomari and damn what a wild ride. So let's talk about books and stuff /a/.
Well aside from Haruhi, years and years ago, this is the only LN I've ever read. I can enjoy them but I still prefer anime and manga, not because I don't like reading; in fact it's because I do like reading. It seems to me that, like any other series in any other form of media, they can have good ideas, characters, story, development and all, or not, that but what trips them up is that they're badly written. You can have one with all the aforementioned good points but it can be wasted because it's supposed to be 'light novels'.
That's what I found with Gekkou; liked it but it would have been better as an actual novel, if you get my meaning. One that can make full use of length, language and all the rest of it and doesn't hamstring itself. It's a problem I don't see in anime or manga, they're free to be as good as their medium can possibly be. Manga can have beautiful art and great dialog mixed and coupled together, supporting eachother, stuff like that; and of course like any other story it can excel in plot and all that good stuff. I just always end up feeling that light novels are just trivialised novels.
Because the people that buy them have zero standards in literature, like its fine to enjoy them but I think we can all agree that when you get into one you know what kind of shit you are getting into, so saying "Why would anyone read shit?" is kinda pointless.
I think LNs are kind of an acquired taste. First time I tried to get into a series I had a hard time making it through even one volume. Later picked up something else I was interested in and marathonned ten of them in pretty quick succession. It's not exactly well written but a good LN can have the feel of literary cotton candy. It's not substantial or sophisticated but it can be fun in its own way.
>Two volumes left
I didn't think I would ever see the day.
I think F Rank is much improvement over Hakomari. MC is a glorious bastard.
Ah, and currently I'm reading an absolutely amazing series that is unfortunately getting axed.
I think that the reality, as sad as it might be, is that they are very young and its the first time they are being exposed to things like that.
Like I remember the first time I watched the megaman cartoon when I was like 8 and thought it was the best shit ever.
Same happened years later when I rediscovered anime.
Well it's not like you have to hate something because it is of low quality, or like something because it is of high quality. Sometimes things are enjoyable even if they are not particularly good by any real objective measure. Hell, sometimes we actually want something superficial and easy, and don't want to deal with anything particularly heavy at the moment. For those times there are LNs, or shows like the ones you described.
It's a shame Owari no Chronicle is so criminally unappreciated. I just hope the finale will bring forth at least a couple of bump-limit reaching Kawakami threads.
And no-one has caught up with js06 on the Horizon translations yet, so there's not much talk about that either.
Illustrations are from print version, which is not as far along as the web version. The translations are all of the web version I believe, they just put the illustrations in it for funsies.
How about you go discuss anime in other threads?
There are Korean LNs but I don't see LMS tagged as one.
Last KLN I ever read was Phantom King, and I regret it.
A lot of fags, but there are threads for the series and these ones tends to be filled with elitism thinking there is something as taste in LNs.
Do you think this is enough to last me several weeks, or should I go download more?
His editors wanted him to write it in different way by removing gore/deaths and adding more moe elements.
Currently, it's something like sora no woto + bokurano, I guess that doesn't really fit with Kadokawa's audience.
I'm thinking of reading 異世界魔法は遅れてる. Some people say LN is a lot different than the WN so I'm not sure if start reading the original or the printed version.
We don't really get anything good adapted from this medium. Things like jintai and kino no tabi are rather an exception.
2.54 TB in 7,321 files (subtracting the 3,796 icon files I have extracted so my auto-sorting script can try to find them a bit easier when it has to make a new folder) is an average of 347 MB per episode, man. Pretty much everything in there besides the icons is just the episodes organized into series/season folders.
Though I do prefer 720p BD rips when available, but most of that shit is just TV encodes I backlogged hella days back and never bothered to watch. 1080p encodes I tend to avoid unless I'm sure I'm going to watch it right away since I don't like the thought of letting it sit there taking up space for months or years before I get around to it.
Sometimes I don't even want an anime of LN stuff. These season there is not much to talk about, but watching Fafnir makes me wonder why did they killed MCs character from the very beginning.
With so few updates it's really hard to establish a fanbase.
Started reading Ark,
Waiting paintfully for MLS
Zhan Long has been updated sometimes 3x each day wich is good.
Shield hero is also good
zero no stukaima.
Mother of learning
I don't know what else is there good to read.
Mainly like the vmmropg / mmo genre,
He did it for her and she the all of it away.
A god-like entity gives emotionally unstable teenagers the ability to bring to life their wishes in a flawed way using things called boxes. A girl who wants to be a box and a boy who wants nothing to do with boxes keep getting sucked into box incidents. These are their stories.
Yeah, he loves her in a yandere-kind of way, he is possessive obsessive as fuck. His 'muh knight' thing made him stab one of his friends only so he could reach her. He is completely broken, and that's why Maria runs away from him.
