Are these guys trying to become the Togashi/Miura of LNs?
>>
>>121063659
Feels strange that no studio has moved to make an animated adaption of that.
>>
>>121063877
Too gory for most studios, since all volumes have deaths (most of them by stabbing). It'd either be a TG-level censorship shit or would require OVAs. And superior nihonese men can't self-insert as a guy who actively pursues what he wants instead of all the girls jumping on his dick for no apparent reason.
>>
>>121063659
I doubt it for Mikage's case at least. Apparently the 7th volume is pretty much done.
>>
>>121063659
Mikage said that he's almost done writing the last volume.
...But he also said that he hasn't disclosed anything of it to his editor yet. Hopefully he doesn't have to start all over. Also, he's going to release some Hakomari-themed songs in April.

Too bad LN's are shit and boring. They almost always have bad adaptations too.

Do you have any source to back that up?

>>
>>121064085
Not true. OP pic is showing Hyouka, which is one of the best LN adaptations ever.
And Kyoani has also done Haruhi, which was from a LN.
But if you change LN to "generic harem self-insert LNs" then you'd be correct.

Only one of those is a LN.

Not him but if something is a LN or not can be determined by the type of book - it has nothng to do with good or bad.

Haruhi LN publishing is pretty much dead jsut as Hyouka by the way.

I don't think you'd need to censor all that much, just don't waste buckets of red paint every time someone gets a paper cut.

Most fags believe that though. And still like Haruhi or Kino no Tabi.
>>
>>121064401
Yeah, I forgot about her when making the OP. I don't get why they just go on and write like 3 volumes in a year and then just disappear.
>>
>>121064433
Yeah, I always laugh when someone tells that "LN adaptations are always trash kill yourself" and list Kino no Tabi and Monogatari as their favorites.

How the hell would they adapt a girl cold-bloodedly killing everyone with a knife?

There's only one (or maybe 2) volumes worth adapting. Mikage doesn't seem to have a clue about what he's doing. Everything he starts ends up abandoned after two or three volumes, or in a mess like HakoMari.

Tanigawa exists.
>>
>>121064823
They could skip volume 2 and just adapt volume 1 (Rejecting Classroom), 3+4(Arcade something), 5+6 (Cinema) and the 7th one.
>>
>>121064796
>Hataraku Maou-sama.
Only the first three episodes or so. Then the director started fucking everything up by shoehorning Chiho.
>>121064632
The first three episodes of NGNL were a lot better than Vol 1 of the novels. Not sure about the rest.

They talked with each other for like, 30 years worth of time on the repeating classroom.

I won't because I agree. The shit he pulled with the second half of S2 is still unforgivable, though.

I thought it was quite fun, the way the other boxes went like. And I don't think it was supposed to end in one volume, since the "Empty box" was only revealed on volume 5.

At least we got Febri.
She was cute.

I mean, volume 7 is normally the last volume and will conclude the series.
>>
>>121065161
Oh right, that's what you meant.
But a 7 volume story could easily be adapted in a 13 episode series, though a 22 one would be better.

It can, but it really fucking shouldn't. Last time someone tried to shove in so many novels into a single cour we got Index S2. Having more than three volumes stuffed into a single cour is NEVER a good idea.

Can't say that you're wrong.

>>121065342
I'd say that would be a waste. Volume 2 may have been the worst, but it set up the dynamic between Maria and Kazuki now that they're in the real world, cements Kazuki's belief in an everyday life (which is important build-up before volume 4) and sets up Daia as the future antagonist while also hinting at his relationship with Kokone.
>>
>>121065342
This, a competent director, composer and sound director and it would be great. anime

It's been years and the only VA choice I've settled on is Ishida Akira for Daiya. Although I often think Marina Inoue could be a great Otonashi.
>>
>>121065455
Oh fuck I forgot all about that.
I don't even remember why he was obsessed with his daily life to begin with, but the vol. 2 only redeeming part were his interactions with Maria.
>>
>>121065566
Because the everyday life is the opposite of an exciting life with the wishes and boxes.
Nice dub dubs by the way.

The suffering sure escalated quickly.
>>
So what are the best LNs?
>>
>>121065566
Originally it's stated that his obsession is based on him rejecting reality and trying to find some something to fill in the hole left by Yanagi.
From what I myself theorized, Maria's box turned Kazuki into her Knight and mindfucked him into needing to have an obsession, something to be loyal to. However, as a Knight, he had no princess to protect, something to obsess desperately over. With nothing left but his understanding of what an "everyday life" is and a heart broken by Yanagi, he became obsessed with the idea of begin a normal person to the point where people could feel that he's insane even though he's trying to be as normal as possible.
Then Maria came in and he was forced to throw away his obsession with daily life and had Maria take that place, making her both his Princess and the center-point of his insanity. At that point, he was no longer restricted by the need to be "normal", which is why his madness spilled over to the point where it became obvious to everyone.

>>121065850
I thought that Maria's willpower/strong desire or whatever managed to materialize 'O', who is Aya, her sister, who would grant wishes and to counterbalance it, it created/turned Kazuki into her Knight, the Empty Box, to destroy the wishes and bring back the daily life. Thus, Maria keeps going around trying to find 'O' to complete her own box, which resets her memory, and her knight's mission is to stop her and kill 'O'. Maybe he would disappear after killing 'O' as well.

Tsukumodou Antique Shop aka Hakomari done right.

>>
>>121065850
My theory is that Kazuki is still obssesed with everyday life, but not his anymore, but with Maria's, that's his raison d'etre, to turn Maria into a normal girl again. Maybe when 'O' was created, to realize wishes and took the form of her sister, Kazuki was either created or given the Empty Box power by the real, deceased, Aya Otonashi, who wished for her sister to lead on a normal life. Therefore, Kazuki had a attachment with his everyday life, but shifted it's focus to her because of the nature of his power. Maybe the twist is that Kazuki is actually her sister.

Not really, but not that far from truth either.

/a/ can only talk about translated LNs, and usually the good ones are much harder to translate than you usual fantasy harem HS. So it's not surprising that most LNs /a/ knows aren't anything remarkable, to say the least.

It's not matter of tastes, just of access to the medium.

Kazuki won't disappear if "O" does, because he existed before Maria met him. The reason he got the Empty Bog is because Maria saw him give salvation to Yanagi (or was it Mogi?), which made her waver in her conviction and think that she wanted someone to stop her and free her. Kazuki was given
the Empty Box because of that belief..

If you think the MC of any LN isn't a self insert, you're delusional.

If you can't see the difference in characters and plot between the two, then you're a fucking idiot.
