Are LNs really the irredeemable garbage they appear, or is it the fault of the translators?
>>
Yes.
>>
No.
>>
>>137288203
No. Many of /a/'s most well respected shows are LN adaptations.
>>
>>137288411
Anime adaptations are often great, but have you ever tried to read the source materials? They are fucking garbage.
>>
Maybe.
>>
Could you repeat?
>>
>>137288460
Can you even read Japanese or are you just reading the output of Google Translate?
>>
>>137288203

Six of one, half dozen of the other. Japanese literature doesn't really translate well to the familiar styles of western writing, so at times things don't flow as well and the translation is harder. The Haruhi LN translations I read are all perfectly acceptable insofar as language, but the temper and flow of discussions, scene changes, description, and so forth, is either lacking or different in approach.

However, there is also just a lot of garbage LNs. With the boom of the industry in the last ten years, you are going mathematically get a lot more chaff with your wheat.

>>137288537
The thread is literally about translation. What the fuck do you think?
>>
>>137288203
Most LN are harems trying to ride that wave so yeah, most are irredeemable garbage with little originality. Authors see what made others famous and try and piggyback on it. That's why you get so many MMO LNs or incest themed LNs.
>>
Don't use Rokujouma for your shitposts.
>>
>>137288203
Are we conveniently forgetting the west releases low-effort Young Adult novels all the time?
>>
>>137288203
No. And only moe and harem hating normalfags seriously would hate an entire medium such as LN.
>>
>>137288660
Rokujouma anime >>>>>>>> Rokujouma LN
>>
>>137288665

While you're right, this really wasn't the point. "The west does it, too" isn't an excuse for the LN product being generally garbage. If anything, it proves it.
>>
>>137288717
>Shitposting

MDJ LN >>>> MDJ anime
>>
A lot of the time it reads like an highschool essay in japanese too, especially when they are using weird kanji in their chuuni LN and you don't know if he's doing it ironically or if he really wrote 尽滅 to sound cool

16 years ago I was just wondering what the fuck a light novel was.

There would be no loss if light novels just died overnight.
