I'm somewhere between currently mourning my inability to read Japanese for all the cute novels I'm missing out on,
and waiting for more OSO.
>>
First volume of Fate/Prototype.

Saber's cooler than I thought.
>>
>>116261411
That's written by Sakurai, isn't it?
>>
>>116261451

Yeah, that one.
>>
>>116261482
Is she the right person to write something Fate related?
>>
>>116261526

This is the first Fate-related LN I'm reading and I'm only four chapters into it, so I don't think I'm in a good position to answer that. Compared to some other LNs I've read, though, (some KagePro stuff, Shana), she's definitely a good writer.

My biggest complaint so far would be the endless and endless descriptions of Manaka's beauty and sweet voice and shy manners and her fairy-like movements. Her and Saber's interactions have been enjoyable to read because they both have skewered views of each other. Only Assassin has been introduced so far and she's pretty passive, so I can't exactly comment on the servants (the other six are all Sakurai's).
>>
>>116262134
>they both have skewered views of each other

How so?
>>
>>116262195

His impression of Manaka is that she's a lovely, good-natured, beautiful and super deredere girl. Manaka is actually completely yandere for him and so fucking crazy she manages to spook a Servant.

Manaka imagines Saber to be her prince on a white horse, but Saber is a dork. On occasion he attempts to compliment her cooking or beauty but all he can get out is a "thank you" or "I'm grateful", and then he berates himself for his lack of knightly manners. Manaka is completely oblivious to his dilemma and it fits her vision of him perfectly, so she's all like, my cool, perfectly mannered prince.

Is the white hair a boy or a girl? This is important.

It's a boy.

Good. Picked the fuck up.

>>116263029
That's a dude and he's the protagonist.

Actually, story is reincarnation; basically, dude was an awesome programmer with a decent job and is a mecha otaku. Unfortunately, he gets killed by a drunk driver. Then he gets reincarnated into that world and finds that there are mecha in the world so he fanboys and decides he wants to pilot one.

Mushoku tensei
And heavy object.

>>116263164

Does he then get himself a harem?

No idea; only one volume's translated so far and the guy only translates from CH to ENG and there's only one volume of CH right now.
>>
>>116263271
The girls hang out around him because he's a soothing cute trap, but I wouldn't really call it a harem. He's more like a mascot than anything.

The character and relationship development in Knights and Magic feels really thin compared to Mushoku Tensei. The pacing is a lot faster, but I'm waiting until the next volume to decide whether that's a bad thing or not.

Mushoku Tensei, but currently waiting on Slow-kun to translate.

It truly is suffering.
>>
I just finished Silver Cross and Draculea (fucking AWFUL don't read it) and I'm thinking of starting the Monogatari series to see how different it is.

Other than that I'm waiting for the next volume of Utsuro to Hako no Zero Maria, Ero Manga Sensei, and Oreshura

Overlord
Vanadis
Campione
Mushoku Tensei
Knights & Magic
Legendary moonlight sculptor
Tsuyokute new saga
Danmachi

>>116261411

Somebody should translate that shit.
>>
>>116263398
I'm just glad someone IS translating it. If i have to wait a bit for new chapters, well that's ok with me.
>>
>>116263636

I'm considering doing that after my midterms are over. I'm halfway done with the second act already, and somebody already translated the first one.

I'll even make a dumblr.
>>
>>116263458
>Campione
What the fuck is zzhk doing?

>>116262786
I enjoyed first volume. I'm hoping that they recruit a bunch of misfits just like FE
>>
>>116263164
>reading a Mushoku Tensei, Re:Monster and Shield Hero ripoff
why
>>
>>116262786
Dialogue-heavy, and a lot of anime tropes that it probably wouldn't even need to be a good story, but it's still pretty well-executed. I love the fact that it's a fantasy world without magic.
>>
>>116264821
Maybe because he already read what you have listed.
I know i did.
>>
>>116264821
Why not?

Unless you can read moonrunes, you don't get to read that much.
>>
>>116264821
Basically what >>116264904 said.

Also reading this but waiting for Setsuna since he's translating volume 10 of Vanadis and his editor had some rl problems.

Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere. Spanish Armada just started, so not quite at pic-related yet.

About to finally start with Hakomari.

Damn, that's too bad.

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon 2A (at chapter 22) and Owari no Chronicle 5A (reading chapters as Js06 releases them).
Fun things are fucking fun. There can't be another series in the world as simultaneously stupid and intelligent as Horizon, and OnC is just full on equal parts humor and badassery.

>>116265514
How is 2B?
2A was kind of a drag in the anime, but it's more interesting in the LN, so I can only imagine 2B will blow that out of the water.
>>
>>116258073
the one with a white background and a cute girl on the cover. you know which one I'm talking about.
>>
>>116265832
>get ready to be blue balled when you finish the current volume.
Partially why I've been putting it off for so long, because the time between volumes is so much, it's been on my list forever.
>>
>>116266337
at least the next one is the last one. you might want to hold off on reading it though, cause you're going to be angry with the cliffhanger ending of volume 6, especially when so much dumb shit happens in the volume
>>
>>116266201
Like most of the other A-parts, 2A does a lot of the setup, and 2B handles the meat of the story. Representative battles, then the negotiations, then the Armada and saving Mary. There definitely is a lot more happening going on.
>>
>>116266525
Yeah, I know what happens, but is it fun to read?
>>
>>116266611
Fun as shit.
>>
>>116266309
Oh yea I know that one. The comedy was great and it even doubled as social commentary.
>>
is it generally better to read the light novels of an adapted anime first?
>>
>>116268165
Depends on how good the adaption is, how much they change, and personal preference.
>>
>>116265373
Translation never.
I've always wanted to read this.
>>
>>116268165
Yes, always.
