ITT: We talk about how this amazing series will never get adapted
I'm not sure why people think the low sales means no adaption ever. That's not always the case.
For example it's entirely possible that this could get an international re-release and an anime could be used as a form of advertising.
Maria is my waifu.
Aren't international releases handled by different publishers who buy the rights? So it's not like there is one entity who does an international release, and original publisher isn't going to care about advertising something of low demand. All the publishers involved in releasing it internationally would have to get together to back an adaption. I would imagine that the international market for nip LNs doesn't warrant a fully produced animu, at least one with the quality that we want.

It's actually good, it doesn't feel like they're wasting your time in any chapter.
The series is full of plot twists that I can never predict but make perfect sense in hindsight. The author has this way of leading everyone down the garden path.
Also, the mind games and mindfuckery is brilliant.
The frequent twists, the highly analytical characters, the yandere, and the dialogue really hit the spot for me. Nothing I love better in a story than solving convoluted mysteries.
Yeah, but who gives a shit about MAL rankings?
It has high critical acclaim but very low sales, partially because of the nature of the story, and partially because the author took two haituses. You can't afford to take haituses if you're not Togashi.
if it was very acclaimed maybe someone could put money to it to make something great, or make a sales boost, but if the story is finished i don't know
to be fair, togashi never take hiatuses, he makes hiatus arcs
Is there any precedent for something like this being adapted? I can't think of anything so I don't exactly have high hopes.
Just finished volume 2 and it was a bit of a challenging read but it's actually good (not just compared to LNs which is a very low standard).
>it doesn't feel like they're wasting your time in any chapter.
Even that 2nd novel, which most people initially felt was kind of unconnected and least exciting, ended up having a fuckton a clues about what goes down in volumes 5 and onwards.
>Hakomari with Madoka/Bake visuals and atmosphere never
why even live
My god, someone actually drew more Hakomari fanart.
Literally the first result with a simple google search.
https://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/?title=Utsuro_no_Hako_to_Zero_no_Maria Here you go. I'm only doing this because I like the series and want as much people as possible to read it.
>people would find out how shit it really is and LNfags would have to do massive damage control by blaming it on the adaptation yet again.
It's true that every LN is always overrated as fuck including Hakomari, but it's still very good.
Even with its flaws and edginess, it would still be one of the wildest rides in anime.
I only read this because I was told the MC was yandere, is he?
in volume one it was only slightly since he stabbed Mogi volume 2 was a shitfest I should have skipped volume 3-6 shows him doing whatever he can to protect maria (not yandere) volume 7 and he slaughters everyone
took a while to reach that part
let Mogi get hit by a truck. She was the stabber.
Second, if you think Vol 5+ wasn't yandere you might not understand what the word means.
He was always crazy, during volume 1 and the time before it. So you could make an argument for yangire.
He didn't knowingly fall in love until around 3/4, and it didn't switch to full yandere until 5/6.
Is it? I haven't read it, but I got spoiled on most twists and they sound pretty retarded.
I don't remember Hakomari ever having dumb twists or event without foreshadowing (except maybe the end of volume 6).
You do not spoil yourself. That is bad. Read it for full viewing pleasure. Probably the best fantasy light novel I ever read. Also the twists have a better light if you read it.
As much as I love Yuasa, I can't think of anyone less fit to direct Hakomari.
Because it is the worst. Just like Magmadiver in Eva, is not on the same level as the rest of the series.
It is more like revelation. The dialogue is what makes the story fascinating. Far from cliched tropes of the demon lord stories. It makes you unexpectedly the emotional impact of the narrative as well as the interaction between the characters.
You guys have no idea how much I love black uniforms.
I've already discussed all the books in depth over the years, and I bet it was with roughly the same anons every time too. But you should try to come up with some new topics if you want the thread to keep going.
Are the later volumes more straightforward than volume 2?
I just finished vol.2 in Japanese and I don't know if it's my poor Japanese reading comprehension or whatever but seemed really convoluted and confusing compared to volume 1. Also Riko's monologues were really irritating to read.
>Are the later volumes more straightforward than volume 2?
Not really. After volume 2, the arcs are two books each. So the storytelling is a bit slower, but in exchange you have longer and more detailed plots.
