Are all Light novels this bad? I kinda got my interest Piqued after all the adaptations coming out recently so took a crack at Pic related and good god this is bad.

now, I read this for like 3 chapters or so and i actually liked how they handed the whole trapped in another world thing It might just be because I actually read books but i just couldnt handle how amateurish and simplistic it felt, its sorta given me a bad impression. Does it get any better? is there anything with more Substance?

it is a web light novel.
you are supposed to enjoy it's simplistic feel.
as far as light novels go, MT can be considered quite in depth.
if you did not enjoy MT, then that may be due to either personal preference, or a general distaste for the majority of japanese LN's.
these things cannot be helped.
on the bright side, if you do not like it, you do not need to read it. things will progress as they have whether or not you participate in reading MT.

I do have to admit though. Chapter 127 was fairly lackluster, given how extensive the previous focus was. I expected more, given the focus of chapter 127.

Eh, I don't find it any more simplistic or amateurish than most of the other books I've read. Maybe if I was comparing it to some Stephen King books it'd be slightly inferior or something. Perhaps you've set the bar too high?

MT had its plot just meander around for two volumes. The main plot actually begins on Vol 3 while the first 2 volumes only set up everything. At least read the first 3 to 5 volumes before making any real judgements on MT.

>>112385199
I personally think Mushoku Tensei is one of the best LNs I've ever read. Characters develop. Powers develop. Relationships develop. MC isn't overly beta, isn't overly dense, still has weak points. People die. People have children. Your favorite girl probably wins. etc.

It is usually called "one of the best wish fulfillment series"

But in all seriousness, yeah it's good, also it's not a LN it's a web novel (which makes the quality it has far less possible).

I made it a rule to not read LN I only make exemptions for certain things, i only read this one because I heard MC actually has children with his harem but the overall story surprised me.

probably because only the first few volumes have been published as light novels so far

Tokyo Ravens is a nice read if you like heart attacks.
>>112385691
It's a web-novel, the published version is only up to vol 4.
>>
>>112385691
Only the first 3 volumes are out as an LN. They have the cover picture for the fourth volume. However starting from volume 2 every translation uses the web-novel.
>>
>>112385691
It's a web novel and the illustrations are coming with the official releases. vol.5 is going to be published soon, I'm hyped for more kishirika pics.
>>
>>112385691
The LN isn't out yet, after volume 3 translations are web novel translations.
>>
>>112385691
MT is a webnovel adapted into a LN. Being the crazy and glorious bastard he is, the author has decided not to take down the chapters he has on the website. What's more, he's still churning out 1 volume every month and releasing them on the site. I guess that's the difference between working for money and working because you enjoy it.
>>
>>112385846
though he did demand that the translators don't translate past vol 20.
>>
>>112385846
Oh shi-, I didn't know he was still releasing new web volumes. This makes my month even better. I thought I was going to have to wait until the LNs started catching up with the web novels before we got more volumes.

Thanks for answering kind /a/nons.

So another question before I move forward, is it implied at the end of volume 2 that Rudeus created the mana calamity and the subsequent mass teleportation? It seems a bit bizarre and random to be quite honest how a saint-level spell that was to make a storm created something totally different.

you can learn how to enjoy things for what they are intended for.

just because you like gourmet food, doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to enjoy a fast food burger too.

unless you're super fancy, but then I would question what a fancy guy like you is doing browsing /a/.

He didn't.
>>
>>112385985
It's not really implied, he just had a lot of bad luck

>>112385985
No, the spell and the phenomenon were unrelated. He just happened to be starting his spell when he noticed the disturbance.

He's just like Weed, anon.

>>112385985
That shit gets explained later on keep reading it's actually bigger thing than was first implied. I was surprised by how much it affected the world in later volumes.

mana calamity was actually caused by farts.
there was a god who ate so many farts. Then one day, all the farts he ate suddenly burst out. there was a lighter present.

presto. magic ball of light and mana calamity and people got blown to different parts of the world due to magical flaming farts.

just read the story and stop asking questions. you're just asking to be spoilered. what kind of guy "who actually reads books," would ask for spoilers?

do you actually read books or ask people for summaries?
>>
>>112385985
>>112386057
>>112386058
>>112386061


It was implied that he played a role in causing the calamity. For example, how he noted his mana was depleted in the beginning of volume 3. His mana was probably one of the factors that caused the teleportation. The true mastermind is still unknown.
>>
>>112386244

It's a small point that was bugging me for a while. I don't like big spoilers, but I felt no harm in learning about this particular spoiler. I could read on but it's late and it is stuck on my mind right now so I wanted to know before I went to sleep, that's all.

Honestly, you can't expect that much substance from LNs. I just read them because they're light reads and are mostly just fun to talk about. In terms of substance though, I would say that "When Hikaru was on Earth" is probably one of the better written ones, though it is extremely flowery. Overall though, I would say don't expect much but a fun read, if sometimes irritating one.

Wait what? Blade-Dance esque series with magic schools full of only woman are one of the most common LN types in existence. I can name 5-10 of them off the top of my head.

Overpowered protagonists in fantasy settings is also as common as hell.

Unless your favorite genre refers to contracting spirits or something. That's a bit harder.

Pretty sure one of things that people are complaining about is that the author pretty much spells it out to you. Well it did surprise me at some points.

I just felt like the author just kept introducing more and more random plot developments out of nowhere. It went from "School for Agents" to "Battle against (pretty much) monsters with random bullshit powers" ridiculously quickly.

Also, their relationship hasn't really progressed that much and neither have the two characters actually developed that much.

Of course, I dropped this after the "This is not the end, only the beginning" note that the author gave so I my opinion might not be 100% correct.

I'm not sure if you're misunderstanding me or if I'm misunderstanding you.

However, Knights and Magic has a male MC. The one I was talking about was another LN which I don't remember the name of at the moment.

>>112388245
Don't worry, we still love you and you're doing god's work.
It's just that it would be nice to have all of them translated.
>>
>>112387724
No, the LN is on a long hiatus too IIRC because the publishers went super-Jew and demanded the artist to do 100 illustrations in a month or something. It's probably possible to just scrape the webnovel off of narou using the wayback machine though.

Besides LNs almost always being better than the anime; the anime skipped over a couple of scenes.

>>112388245
But then I wouldn't have been able to read what happened after the anime ended. Also the LN you're translating is fucking deep-- you do a good job at still giving us the ability to read between the lines.
>>
>>112386008

Because Koreans took the worst aspects from America (capitalism on crack + R&B culture), the worst aspects from Japan (corporate culture on crack), and combined them along with growing insecurities of China's growing power into what they proudly call Korean culture. Also they promote leg fetish which is a redeeming trait.

It's on the level of a child's fantasy novel, with young adult levels of "mature" content. It compares poorly with, say, Artemis Fowl or the Abhorsen Trilogy or anything by Diana Wynne Jones.

It's just... it's not really very good. It's pretty solid for fanfiction - translated fanfiction, at that - but that doesn't mean it's actually /good/.

Why does it always have to be "random useless guy dies and wakes up in world X as character Y", "random useless guy start playing a virtual reality game as character Y in world X" or something along those lines?
Why not just cut the crap and have the main character be a native of the world the LN is set in?

No self respecting anon would own an deviantart account, so /a/ really can't claim much for how fast MT got translated.
>>
>>112388593
Because it easier to relate with the MC, making the developments more interesting. By easier to relate, I don't mean as a self insert, but that your knowledge of the setting is on the same wavelength as the MC. whatever he's experiencing in the world is first time just like it is to you. It provokes the reader to have more thoughts like "What would I do if I am in MC's position?"
>>
>>112389815
I'm sure. Even js06 has to spend two weeks for a volume of Index. But then again, he's also working on Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon.

>>112389921
Meh. Kaito's account is 11 years old. That's back before youtube. Having an account from back then isn't bad.

Not entirely true seeing as the MC was summoned into that world. Of course, he's pretty much a native now seeing as he was only a kid when he was summoned.

Not the anon you were responding to, but I actually kind of liked Garth Nix. Also, I'm fairly certain the Abhorsen is at least young adult, not children seeing as they have implied sex and stuff in there if I remember right.

Artemis Fowl is children's but I do agree that the series got progressively worse.

It has already bent over when C&D notices got sent in. SAO and Shakugan no Shana were the two I remember but I'm sure there have been more that have been taken down.

Basically, whenever Yen Press or somebody decides to release the novel, you can kiss the translations goodbye.

Fuck Viz for Shakugan no Shana.
But at least Yen Press still allowed New Testament Index to continue translations even though they picked up the 22 volumes of the Old Testament.
>>
>>112390402
Not necessarily because it might take years for them to catch up to the LNs if at all. Some companies don't play catch-up and release translations at the same pace/slower than the release of the actual novels. Even then, it'll usually at least a couple of years until the entirety of an already unofficially translated novel becomes released by the translation companies.
>>
>>112390538
That will cause drama and hurt his pride anon. There's quite a lot who hold on to the e-peen factor of translating.

Its not like he can't just put his translations up.

Sure these should have stayed in pastebin but its not like you need to throw a shitfit over it,

Besides if he was actually bothered over it and not some shitty e-peen he could just post it on his deviantart.

The only LN that can be considered good is Spice & Wolf

Holy shit. Vanant really jumped a pile of dicks with this one.

Can he be more of a bitch? Someone got fed up with his aussie slacking and put up the stuff he was supposed to translate. So fucking what. Its not some special shiny place to be a chapter's translator. Its a willing gift you are giving we desperate fans. You don't get paid. You're doing it out of the goodness of your heart.

If you're having trouble and don't get it done in time, don't get pissy when someone else does the job because they thought they'd spend the time to do it.

Such a special little snowflake our Vanant is.

I hope a dropbear eats him.
>>
Why even reserve 10 chapters at once? What about reserving one, working on it, finishing it, then reserving another one that isn't done/being worked on and so on... This translator drama is stupid.

Being stupid and pissy really backfired on him.

He seems illogically mad. Apparently removing the translations from BT makes no difference to him.
>>
>>112393442
Translators are so prissy. Its saddening. We got those two anons if they're willing to continue.

I can hope so. But really, if he wants to be prissy and hold onto chapters, we're better off without him.
>>
>>112393381
It's because of BT's stupid rules. Seriously they make no fucking sense to me.

You need to play the game to get your chapters. Now we're all paying for some idiot's stupidity.
Even if Vanant is a faggot, as long as nobody says it to his face, he'll live his life happy and be productive.
>>
>>112392903
And he can still translate it. It'd be awesome if he did and he will be a better translator.

But the throughout these threads he stalled chapters, scooped up several other chapters, sat on them, then ragequited when someone else did it despite that. Note how before it came to his chapters the translations were running smoothly, but when it did it slowed to a crawl. I'm not going stand up for a translator that doesn't translate.
>>
>>112393559
Can't be helped.

Welp, when that cn translator appears again, I guess we should tell him to start with 138.

Right. So without kaito and vanant will progress be hindered much?
Are we talking more than two months now?
>>
>>112393678
Agreed. Oh well, we can hope good people take over.
>>
>>112393541
What he's mad is not that some anon translated the chapter. But rather some guy used that anon's translation and posted it on BT that he himself reserved. I think the point here is he didn't even talked to vanant since vanant was the one reserving the chapters. And he's mad at how deadgye never even bothered following the rules and openly posted the chapters without consent at all.
>>

I really hope he does. Is there a way to summon him? The only person I can summon is Diaz.

hitogami no deshi, onegai.

I seem to remember taking quite a few days to get vol.9 ch.3 out and some anon here did it and uploaded it for the benefit of everyone else. I didn't talk shit, and even said thanks to them as well. It was there for people to read, and then when I had gotten around to putting my version up, i merely <hidetext>'d the link to the old preview on the registration page, and even kept the link there in the editor, because that shit was polite to do.

No point in getting mad over shit on the internet.

I just hope vanant kicks a dingo, then continues on 14. otherwise, if he moves to inactive, i'll keep in v14 and have to adjust my timetable is all.

I'm a fucking /a/non lifer. I can get shit on and not even get mad. And when I get mad, I just fap to a good trap thread or something on sadpanda and i'm chill again.
>>
>>112394034
To prevent multiple people from editing the same chapter. However, the first and foremost rule to prevent that is not to register multiple chapters.

He didn't even upload a rough draft of 127 yet.
>>
Oh the chapters got deleted from BT. Onizuka is only on the ball when translators cry and complain.
>>
>>112394236
Does it even matter when he's not going to translate it anymore?
>>
>>112394218
You're the translator we needed but not deserved
>>
>>112393955
Technically the way they doing it is that no one could upload translation before they registered first (which is the first come first serve basis rule). It's also why they put Vanant's translation as preview for diary chapter because COTHER registered it first and the supervisor needs to contact him first before putting the translation.

Why is BT so shitty

>>112394331
He should at least translate those Eris Greyrat chapter first. I can't hate him because he's also an Eris bro ;_;

This is /jp's translation philosophy:
1) Translation is too difficult, so...
2) Don't bother, just learn Japanese

They are right that "Translating is writing a story that's already written", but they take too much of a hardline against machine translations.

I think people are just annoyed that he's posted for like the last week that he'd have 127 done by like the next day and then kept postponing it over and over. I know I'm annoyed with him about that.

If there's anything I've learned don't set dates if you don't intend to keep them.
>>
I'm trying to make amends with him. Based on the wiki guidelines I didn't do anything wrong, but I guess there are some other rules somewhere in the forums that I missed.

It's up to him whether he accepts my apology or not I guess. Somebody else tell him that registering more than one chapter at a time is breaking the rules too, because I have a feeling I shouldn't say it to him. (And it'd prevent most of this conflict bullshit from happening in the first place.)
>>
>>112395804
Not really. But there is no good reason to reserver a chapter that you aren't going to be working on for weeks. It stops more translators from coming in and getting text done, and since this seems to be an /a/ flavor of the month kind of thing, there will very likely be several anons that come and go over the next few weeks that will want to work on this project.
>>
>>112395872
You should just ignore him.

Asura just has incredibly perverse nobles running everything.

Asura, the corruption is only really evident at the highest levels and Milis has an inquisition and widespread slavery.
>>
>>112396365
So far the only place that seems nice to live is the Magic University country. Asura is a place ruled by a bunch of vile sex deviants and Millis is.... well terrible.

If the Magic Continent had better geography it seems like the place to live.

I'm basing this mostly on how free the lives and thinking of people in the area seem to be in addition to the percentage of unusual women that likely populate the area.

>>112398037
Literally made the account mere minutes before uploading so that other people would be able to enjoy the translation. Checked all the guidelines/rules I could find for reasons not to upload it, saw nothing notable. Put notes into the registration page to let him know that someone completed the translations so he didn't waste time.

And then got met with that. I mean I'm sorry I'm the one that triggered this, but with that attitude if it wasn't me it would have been someone else.

>>112398252
Slowly churning out chapters somebody else already translated. If anything I saved him time.
>>
>>112398252
Except that now he can be replaced by someone who is actually fast and contributing with work miles ahead of Vanant.
The reason why Vanant is suck slow is because he can't be bothered or is incapable of writing proper English in literature prose, and needs others to work on his shit.
>>
>>112398252
I think we are just spoiled by this series regarding translation speed and 1 chapter per week can be considered very fast when compared to other projects. Vanant's translation is no way considered slow.
>>
>>112398316
Because generic harem fanservice shit #431595 sells and that doesn't. Popularity and attention are what solely fed amateur translator

It doesn't work that way, trust me, and Vanant is someone really particular about translation. Though, I agree it bound to happen sooner or later

The guy who did his translations. >>112373854

>>112398686
Anon he wont be coming back. Stop deceiving yourself.
>>
>>112398709
>yfw that was actually Vanant setting up for this entire thing.
>>
>>112398686
Is there a contract binding him to? It could be a one time thing for all you know.
>>
>>112398686
>CN-EN translator

I'd like to see how the obscure japs joke works
>>
>>112398686
There's no guarantee of that, he's under no obligation to do so.

Would people suck his dick if he came back and did more work? Sure, but ultimately it's still a matter of anon feeling whimsical and generous enough to spend a few hours doing free translations. Which isn't to say that projects with registered translators are more reliable, I'm just saying that you can't rely on anon's generosity based off one or two incidents.
>>
>>112398776
None of the translators have a binding contract. Any asshole can talk with the sup, register half a volume, and then never do it. In order to not break the "rules" you'd have to message him on his talk page when you noticed it and then wait 2 weeks before you could take it over.

It's a convoluted mess. Vanant broke the rules twice over in registering 10 chapters and then didn't even do them in order. The fact that he's mad at this random uploader instead of the TL makes even less sense.
>>
>>112398828
So whats the difference btw some anon who translates and posts here, and might or might not continue, and some anon who registers a name, posts on BT, then ragequits?

Only one thing. Skill.
>>
On the other hand Vanant translated about 40 chapters in the few months hes been working on MushoTen. Thats more chapters than we'll get from Rakuin no Monshou in 10 years.
>>
This is why things should be kept "muh secret club"

I hope whoever uploaded the chapters didn't actually think "Hey I know you are already working on these, but let me jump in and tell you that it's all wasted effort, so hurry up and work on v14" would fly.
>>
>>112399156
He was 10% into 128 and 0% into 129.
>>
>>112398953
He is mad the Dreadgye cause Dreadgye is fking rude. And to be fair he translated a quarter of volume 14 already and we would soon have the first 5 chapter to read once skuizaan is done.
>>
>>112399085
To be honest, while I do appreciate the work, those previous chapters were in collaboration with Dark Kaito, and recently on the chapters he is doing himself, Vanant has been more concerned with beating up on editors for cleaning up the lines he made wrongly.
>>
I gotta ask as I'm reading chapter 129 or so at the moment. but does Zenith ever get better? Since there are like 20 volumes after all.

Also Sylphie best girl.
>>
>>112399059
There's no difference, but what we actually had was
some anon who translates and posts here, and might or might not continue, and some committed anon who registers a name, posts on BT

The ragequit part only came because someone lacked etiquette
>>
>>112399437
How does one even collaborate on a chapter anyway? You take the top half and I'll take the bottom half?
>>
Good news guys. Vanant will at least finish volume 14 from his deviantart post
>>
You guys sure are entitled faggots.
>>
>>112399490
no
>>
>>112399510
Something like that. those under Kanant Vaito were "An unholy matrimony of Vanant and Dark Kaito"

>>112399495
I can understand getting angry at the bloody rude post, but quitting only brought him to the level of someone doing whatever he wants. I understand theres nothing holding him to the chapters he committed, but it only goes to show his professionalism and maturity, lack of.
>>
>>112399538
You can't say the supervisor doesn't do his work anymore. He must've fondled Vanants balls quite a bit.
>>
>>112399538
At least he's posting the stuff he was sitting on in the pastebin, instead of wiping the slate clean.
>>
>>112399695
Or sucked his dick
