I tried reading the LN, but it sucked. Did they make LN 9 less japanesey? Play scripts aren't really novels.

Volume 1 and 2 full translation where?
>>
>>136268013
can't find those two. The anime adapted those two novels so no one felt like translating them.
>>
>>136268004
>Play scripts aren't really novels

That's kind of all ln's isn't it? Personally I'm not a huge fan of ln's anyway but I actually became pretty vested into the story so I started reading them.
>>
Emi a shit.
Worse than Kirino.
>>
>>136269517
Emi a cute.

You a shit.

LNs tend to suck dick, really. Only LN I've managed to read without cringing every two pages was S&W.
>>
>>136269517
The way she acts towards Maou is annoying but understandable. To normal people she's pretty nice.
>>
>>136271068
Have you read the ln's? She's been doubting herself for hating him more and more frequently.

Especially after finding out that her father is alive

In the newest ln you also learn that Maou never wanted to harm any of the humans, and only wanted to conquer them so he could rule over them in a fair and just way

In the next novel I think she actually realizes that she like him.

Is volume 3 available anywhere other than AO3? I got banned years ago and don't feel like waiting to get another account.

This dumb bitch is why we aren't getting another season.

Season 2 when?

amazon.com

God damn anon, I had to actually search for a while to find volume 3 not on ao3.

I'm not sure if it's complete, but here is the link.

Maou-sama is in my top five favorite anime of all time. I've rewatched it almost 10 times I think mostly drunk. The lack of S2 despite all the reasons it should exist is killing me.

Could anyone tell me how many volumes the anime covered?

Wondering if there's enough content for another season.
>>
>>136272825
First 2 volumes were covered. Currently the english translations are up to volume 9, and there are even more novels not yet translated.

The show sold well, was well received, and has enough source material which is why everyone is so pissed and confused as to why there is no season 2.
>>
>>136269920
Madan ou to Vanadis wasn't so bad.

The first volumes were actually done incredibly well. Read like a standard fantasy novel.
>>
>>136272649
It gets much better later on in the story imo. If they actually did make more seasons I'd be looking much more forward to season 3 or 4 since that's when the story really starts to get interesting.
>>
>>136272991
Are the ln's worth reading for Madan? I just picked up the show a few days ago and I'm about halfway done with it.

It's nothing new, but even in the action/romance genre I didn't think much of it. Maybe if the ln's are really good I'll give them a try.
>>
>>136272973
I also recall the seiyuu saying they loved their roles and working on the show, more than for promotional purposes.
>>
>>136269920
Try Boogiepop or NHK (or is that a novel?)
>>
>>136267433
I want to lick Emi's armpits
>>
>>136269920
I dunno, I also like the Haruhi series.

I enjoy SAO, but it's a guilty pleasure, and I wouldn't try to convince anyone they're good.
>>
Has there really been no word of a season 2 though? What the actual fuck is wrong with them? Literally everyone who has seen this show (which is a lot of people) has been asking for a season 2, and even the VA's want a season 2. Is there any logical reason for them to not make one or are they just being faggots?
>>
Out of curiosity, who do you guys think would win in a fight between Maou and Emi if they're both at full power?

I personally think that Maou would be able to absolutely destroy Emi. The main reason is because it was referenced several times that Emi was able to defeat Lucifer twice, but both times it was very difficult for her and she was never able to kill him.

Then we get that scene in the show where Lucifer originally shows up and gets btfo by Maou in like thirty seconds, which makes me think that Emi really isn't a match for Maou.
>>
>>136274990
Yeah I'd have to agree with you from that reasoning. I don't think we'll ever get to see anything like that though.
>>
>>136271463
>Emi is best.
I agree with you.
>Kirino is also god tier.
And there goes your credibility
>>
>>136274990
It kind of depends on when in the series you're talking about. Emi seems to be getting stronger and I'd find it hard to believe Maou got any stronger since being on earth.
>>
>>136275332
I mean, the current story arc is Emi being useless and requiring Maou to come and save her. Also, I have the feeling you haven't read the latest novels because Maou also has a Yesod fragment fused with him just like Emi
>>
>>136275418
I've only read the ones translated into english so far.
>>
>>136275528
9 just came out today, link is in the OP. She's stuck in Ente Isle and Maou and Suzuno had to go after her to save her.
>>
>>136275575
Saw it I just didn't get a chance to read it yet. I have a vague idea of this arc but not specifics.
>>
So how does Maou take Emi being more lovey dovey?
>>
>>136275801
She's not lovey dovey yet. They've been separated for a while also, so they haven't been able to interact at all recently in the story.

She is starting to soften up though, since she's finally accepting that even though he's the demon lord he's legitimately a good person and every decision he made he believed would be beneficial for everyone.

As of ln 9 she really wants him to come get her, but she's still confused on how she feels about him. Another anon said in a thread a few months ago that in volume 10 she finally realizes that she like him.

It'll be funny to see how oblivious he acts towards her though, just like with Chiho and Suzuno.
>>
>>136275884
>It'll be funny to see how oblivious he acts towards her though
Willing to bet he'll be wonderfully conscious of it.
>>
>>136275947
Depends how quickly the author wants to progress that plot point I guess, but the authors always try to drag out the romance for as long as possible. Especially in a harem show like this (yes, at this point it can kind of be considered a harem since there's like three girls that all want him).
>>
>>136275994

Let's be honest, this romance was happening from the very beginning. If it's taken this many novels just for her to realize she likes him, I'd say it's been more than dragged out.
>>
>>136276024
10 volumes for her to realize it, at least 3 or 4 more for her to confront him about it. That doesn't seem too unlikely to me.
>>
>>136275994
Wait 3?
>>
i just want my motherfucking season 2. a unique storyline, enjoyable characters, and the entire cast enjoyed working on the series. i dont even remember how it did in sales but it could have not been that bad. why? WHY? NAZE?
>>
>>136276060

It all depends on whether they want to focus on her love or not in the main story for the most part. Then again, it's also dependent on whether Maou is actually able to love someone as well.
>>
>>136276135
Chiho, Suzuno, and now Emi all want his dick.

>>136276188
literally everyone else that's watched the show is thinking the same thing. It sold well and got high ratings across the board, but for some mysterious reason there's still no season 2.

>>136276192
I think they'll focus on it, since it's probably a huge attraction for all the kissless weaboos and neets that read this kind of stuff.
>>
>>136276135
Suzuno, Emi and Chiho

Don't be like that.
>>
>>136276273
>>136276305
When did Suzuno ever show any signs of liking Maou besides when she was still pretending to be their neighbor to buddy up to them?
>>
>>136276347
read volume 9.
>>
>>136271234
I don't like that.

Why couldn't Maou just be a legit dick?
>>
>>136276474
Because every harem MC ever has to be an unrealistically nice guy to get all that pussy
>>
>>136276474
It's been clear that wasn't the case from the very start.

Hello Hiroshima Nagasaki. Are you doing this because you aren't making any money after purchasing this website?

Emi is fine.
Suzuno is the true cancer.

>/a/ says Emi a shit

>/a/ says Kirino a shit
>has understandable motivations if you see the story from her side
I think /a/ is just in varying shades of autism and can't empathize with anyone else's point of view.

Only thing I didn't like that Emi did was hint at joining the Maoubowl at the end of the season when she knows one of her best friends has been trying to win it since Day 1.
>>
>>136271926
are you sure it's not the magic baby that comes from the fucking ether because 'We want to create a family dynamic but we also can't have sex because it's basically taboo in Japan.'
>>
>>136276776
But what's wrong with Suzuno? I don't think she's best girl but she's a qt3.14 and she isn't really annoying or anything. She's mostly neutral throughout the entire series.
>>
>>136268004
Paragraphing in LN prose tends to split them down into bite size chunks of 3 sentences at most. Perhaps the translator didn't think to play around with the formatting to make it more in line with english prose.
>>
>>136277602
But aren't all ln's like that? It was really difficult for me to start reading them as well just because of how retarded the format is.
>>
>>136277602
But then I've seen people who comments "too many unimportant shit" when the LN narration has paragraph that consists of more than 3 sentences.

I swear whatever they'll do complain always comes in.
>>136277734
No, not really. Do you only read love comedy LN by chance? They tend to be structured like that and sometimes feel more like a script of a play instead of actual novel.
>>
>>136277734
Most. I recall Black Bullet's prose being packed very similarly to english novels but I'd say their brand of paragraphing actually makes it easier to read. At least with actual books at least considering how small they are.
>>
>>136277870
It's a book. It's normal for there to be "too many unimportant shit" exposition when all you've got to describe with are words. It's not like it's something exclusive to japan or LNs.
>>
>>136277870
I don't only watch/read romance stuff, but the only two ln's I've ever tried reading were Highschool DXD and this one. I tried reading DXD about a year ago and I thought it was really difficult so I gave up after a few pages, but for this one I genuinely got interested in the story and just kept reading through.
>>
>>136277911
One more thing. They don't seem to care for including speech in the middle of paragraphs either. I guessing that it'd just muck up the flow since their brackets don't look good thrown into the middle of paragraphs like that. When it comes down to it it's not going to be the prose that keeps you engrossed in the book.
>>
>>136273066
Not the first guy but it's worth picking up. It's a harem but the author still puts focus on the fantasy and battles.
>>
>>136279971
I didn't really think much of the show, but since people seem to like it I'll give it a try.
>>
>>136280032
Go for it. Everything's translated so far and the anime was a rushed adaptation that tried to cover five volumes of material. They basically cut out the overarching plot.
>>
>>136267433

>>136283230
She has yet to enter the Maoubowl, but I think she'll join the contest in the next volume.

So far we have Chiho and Suzuno competing for him, but obviously once Emi joins there won't be any competition.
>>
>>136283230
If there is a winner, it'll definitely be her.
>>
>>136286055
You guys are really intent on keeping this thread bumped aren't you? I think it reached page 10 three or four times and each time someone bumped it lol.

I've enjoyed Rokka no Yuusha, Overlord, Rokujouma no Shinryakusha and Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku (as well as a few others I'm probably forgetting) quite a lot so far.

Granted I've just started getting into LNs so I'm prepared for /a/ to tell me I've got shit taste. Plus about a year ago I was probably one of the people complaining loudest about how shitty LNs are.
>>
>>136267433
Holy shit... did Emi just fuck Maou?
>>
>>136287676
I've read a few ln's at this point and I've more or less gotten used to them, but I still think they're pretty shitty.
