I feel like this should be more of a /m/ thing than an /a/ thing, but MC (the one on the right) loves giant robots, and I'm sure some people would call it "Mushoku Tensei with robots".

And I guess LN thread.
>>
I heard that, unlike Mushoku Tensei, Knights and Magic has basically 0 romance. Is this true? Because that girl is clearly digging the trap.

Though I'm sure the trap would sooner get hard over a robot than her.

I dunno /a/non. I just read the first novel and that's it.

I'm enjoying elf reincarnation. Thank god growing up arc and schooling arc ended in the first volume.

>>119905547
Is that 'new chapter never' LN? I heard that chinks stopped translating it so the EN translator couldn't translate it.
>>
>>119905749
Still waiting for translation before starting. Are fights and plot good?
>>
>>119905937
>fights
It has some of the more described action scenes for an LN, and while they're good, I've seen better.

>plot
Going around punching people and making bitches? Works, I guess. MC does suffer from the dense syndrome, but at least one girl realizes this and tells him how she feels in a way he can't possibly misinterpret, which he actually does understand it.

No idea, I was just curious and hoped someone in here could provide me with some information.
>>
>>119907686
About people wearing fucking retarded outfits. I mean one guy is wearing full set of clothes that fit for nothern atmosphere while everyone is barely clothed. Either There's some fucked up weather or they are just stupid.

>>119905547
>Draw girl claim it's a boy.
Fuck.You
On top of that you have to make him wear kneesocks? Really? Why not a skirt while at it.
>>
>>119907647
>>119907686
Allow me to translate the tags it has.
>Fantasy, Adventure, Magic, Parallel World Traveling, Highschool Student(s), Trade, Monsters, Slave Girl(s), Harem

To summarize the plot description: MC is teleported to another world but he can't live up to his chuuni delusions because he's shit at everything. He goes on to survive with his half-baked knowledge from modern times.

The description doesn't say what his "item cheat" is, but presumably he is actually an OP protagonist as per the norm.
I don't plan on reading it unless someone can convince me to.
>>
>>119907973
dammit why can't they just have an out and out trying to get by on little MC

part of me wants a reincarnation series where the MC tries to hit the ground running but fails miserably because he's doesn't have the resolve to.

closest we got is Gun-ota's MC

The first chapter of the manga probably didn't sell how good the story is, seeing as it's light introductions all around.

Also, I like all the artists, but I'd rank them Original LN art > New LN artist (volume 6) > Manga artist.

Mangaka has really good quality for his speed though, so it's hard to find fault with him.
>>
>>119908945
None of the art is very wow from what I've seen, and anyways, it's not the kind of story that would need fantastic art to sell. The two leads are enough for me to stick with it.

Finished Tsukumodou last month. Will probably pick Magdala de Nemure next.
Escape Speed and Alderamin look somewhat interesting too, but I have a feeling that those quickly turn into your usual generic shounenesque fanfiction trash.
>>
>>119907651
Do you mean digging like caring only or digging like excavating in ground ?

>Why not a skirt while at it.
His "tabard over shorts" looks kind of a "dress over spats" from the right angle. That's close enough for me.

I had high hopes for Knights and Magic but I couldn't get through more than half of the first volume before the walls of exposition just became too much for me. Cool setting, fun characters, but my god I couldn't stand the writing enough to see if it ever got any better.
>>
I just began reading LN (mahouka koukou no rentusei and mushoku tensei). I enjoyed them so far.

The trick is that I have absolutly no clue on what to read next, any advice, anons ?

>>119909429
Alderamin might stay good, but the translator is basically putting only 1 chapter every 3-4 months out and he already refused help because of 'my personal project'. He most likely will never catch up or simply drop it. It's simply torture.
If you know moon, it's a different story, though.

Wasn't there a story about demonking x yuusha before maouyuu? Not sure if it was japanese though.
>>
>>119915951
maoyuu pretty much set off the whole fad since it came from syosetsu and a whole bunch of shit spawns from that
>>
>>119915846
Thanks dude.
>>
>>119915564
Not complaining it's the only reason I read syosetsu for.

I just wish said series were better
>>
>>119915951
Everyone started following MaoYuu because that was like a huge success story. The author basically was a NEET and wrote his little story online. Then his story got published as a LN. Then it got countless spinoff manga. Then it got an anime. Then he started Log Horizon and because of his name the same thing is happening to LH.

And everyone writing webnovels on syosetsu wants to be as successful as him.

Well mushoku is the most popular series on ncode by far. Other authors are just replicating it

If we are talking about DK x Hero Manga with uncommon art then this is most likely

>>119916508
I have a hard time believing Mamare was a NEET when he wrote Maoyuu. Maoyuu has way too much weird history, engineering, economics, etc... minutiae in it that screams college-education, and he has too much of a work ethic for me to believe that he would have skipped job-seeking.
>>
>>119905605
Yes, but he has pretty cute osananajimi that is all over him. It's mostly about tech though.

I've finished all chapters available in Japanese, pretty fun read but gets somewhat absurd in war arc.
>>
>>119919541
seems pretty obvious

the only thing that was stopping him from being completely unstoppable was the fact he didn't have his own custom built mech yet

What's the most ridiculous thing Eru done so far?
