Just because he can write in passable English does not, in fact, make his work any good. The fact that simply not sounding like a third world ESL teenager is enough to make you the best fan translator ever just highlights how sad the LN translation scene is.
>>
>>124419481
They have the first two books out. Some notable errors (as I've mentioned earlier, mistranslating "majin" as "demon god" instead of the proper term "magic god" is going to come back to haunt them once they get to SS2 and NT), but generally solid work.

At this point I'm just reading for the end. "The end" I'm referring to is the magic/science war and what happens to all of the characters as a whole, of course. I'm also in it to drink delicious tears of deluded shipperfags when Touma ends up with literally no one and forgotten or dead

>>124419687
forgotten is the most likely scenario right this second because Ib-Chan won't let him die even if its easier to do so by far.
this becomes especially evident in the othinus arc by the fact that as soon as he was supposed to "permanently" die othinus changed her mind at the last second.
or when will tan saved his dumb ass from committing suicide.
>>
>>124419687
same here, I am losing interest on this series.
>>
>>124419755
Could be both, to be honest. I get IB has kept him alive when it would have been better for him to die, but I'm not buying he's immortal because of it, which is what most Touma fanwankers want to believe. After all, he ages and what would IB do once he's too old to move? Move to another host which would mean he would die

I find the parts about Touma (with the exception of bits of this last arc) to be incredibly dry. It's like when he shows up we automatically know there's going to be bad comedy, a lead up to a fight, he'll win, someone will develop feelings for him, repeat.
>>
LNs are inherently written like trash so it's not actually the translation's fault
>>
>>124419462
Except the translation is fine for the most part. Though I think Js06 localizes a bit too much.

Eastern writing style tend to differ from Western writingm In the case of LN that favors character narrative, subtlety, inference from vagueness, simplified but descriptive writing. Not to mention the obvious difference in languages that have no equivalent or the difference in culture.

If you can't enjoy LN writing, then it isn't for you. Stick to mediums that requires less thinking on your part then.

There's no way Touma could become "accidently" immortal. He might know things but he can't cast magic and no one could cast magic on him because of IB. He could read all the books Index has and learn every single thing Othinus knows and he still couldn't do jack shit unless there was something in there about separating him from IB permanently while leaving him alive

You're a lying sack of shit. The fans distorted Demon God into Magic God because of autism. Demon God is the correct term. The literal definition of Demon God is a god that has the power and the intent to distort the world. This is not up for debate. Anyone who can read and understand the Japanese language knows this much. It really is sad how many secondaries are entirely corrupted by second-hand information these days.

At the same time as the queen spoke those words, an explosive noise resounded
throughout the area. Carissa realized that it was the sound of a tremendous number of
people’s footsteps, and servants, gardeners, and others who had no real knowledge of
magic rushed in making up a sizable threat.
People from across the United Kingdom were gathering beneath the Union Jack to
protect their country.

And after all that fiasco after the Othinus arc, he's still treated like shit by Index. Fuck the only people who understand and sympathizes with Touma are either turned to a fairy or forced to not remember them
>>
>>124424563
People will bitch and whine endlessly about how Index and Mikoto treat Touma while showering undeserved praise on Othinus. She doesn't understand or sympathize with Touma. She literally dragged him through hells that no one in this series can imagine and then changed her mind at the last minute. No one can truly understand Touma because now he is simply a tool and the sum of his achievements. He's been mind wiped multiple times and forced to play the Hero archetype, and that's not even counting how NT9 affected him. There is no Kamijou Touma anymore he's a puppet.

What? He's more alive now than ever. He's finally included himself in the happy ending he wants to give everyone although he still won't hesitate to hurt himself if it will mean he can help someone else.

It's true that he did suffer but he came out of it stronger than ever. Birdway's line about Touma's core not being changed even after seeing the end of the world was like the summary of what Kamachi wanted to express. No amount of suffering will make him change his mind about what he wants to do and that is to help people.

NT10 made a big deal about how everyone else lost to their fear, anger or hatred and those people barely even faced a fraction of the suffering Touma did. Touma literally faced billions of hellworlds and he still decided to understand and help the one who put him through it. Touma's not a hypocrite who'd abandon his ideals after merely a billion hellworlds.

In return, Othinus who Touma chose to understand reciprocated by giving up her own dream in order to restore Touma's old world even if it will make her the enemy of the world. In fact, NT10 was them repeatedly wanting to sacrifice themselves for the other with Othinus wanting Touma to abandon her but Touma refusing every time. It was the understanding born from mutual brokenness which led to them not wanting to hurt the other person. It concluded with Othinus wanting to kill herself fighting Touma so Touma can end up being the hero again but Touma refused it yet again.

It wasn't Stockholm syndrome that people keep parroting because Stockholm syndrome misses the point in how Touma's actions were portrayed to be a sign of strength instead of weakness. He may have suffered residual trauma as shown in NT12 but that's natural. It'd be cheap if Touma came out of it without any damage and Othinus' talk helped snapped him out of some of his worries.

if by "alive" you mean having PSTD and having Stockholm Syndrome. You can use pretty words and post walls of text about how awesome Touma is and how great he and Othinus' relationship is all day if you want.

>>
>>124429664
But I don't even deny the suffering. You calling him a puppet and denying that Touma's portrayal was supposed to be one of strength isn't being faithful to the text.

Just dismissing it as Stockholm syndrome is stupid when the text clearly shows it otherwise. Touma saying his SoGeBu line wasn't weakness or pure dependence. It was him deciding for himself.

Calling it Stockholm Syndrome when it's the same thing he would do for anyone is just silly. The moment that he realizes that he can come to an understanding with someone, that's the point that the person he's facing stops being and enemy and someone that he needs to help.

Othinus gave up her dream for him and repeatedly wanted him to abandon her just so he can live a normal life again. Touma went through the same shit Othinus did so he will never allow it. Basically, Othinus did what Touma would have done. Sacrifice herself for someone else.

Denying Othinus would be like denying himself. It's the same for Hamazura. People may hate Shiage but it's what Touma would have done.

The old volumes suffer from bad translation. And nobody bother to edit them since the majority don't care enough and just start reading from volume 14. Jesus fuck, even vol 19 and 21 have some parts which was translated from a Chinese translation.

Plenty of people edited the old volumes. The current PDFs are far different than what was originally translated. The problem is the fact that there are way too many errors in the translation, since they were translated from Chinese.

Combine that with the fact that you can't find OT on BT anymore means that you have to wait until the YP version comes out and it integrated into the PDFs.

>It was 8:00am when disaster struck the Matthews family household. David Matthews had committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a revolver.

>David Matthews was an ordinary man with two daughters and a wife. His day job is being a translator at Yen Press, specifically at translating Japanese material into English. Investigations by the police revealed that Matthews was a diligent, optimistic worker in the past.

>"Never missed a deadline and always provided top quality translations," said Peter Hennings, a coworker of Matthews', "But that all changed one day when he began working on A Certain Magical Index."

>Matthews was quite positive, at first, that he could translate all 30 novels of A Certain Magical Index within one year. However, as time went on, he became noticeably harsher. His work quality slowed to a crawl and he frequently began crying without apparent cause. Recent investigations have also revealed traces of heroin and marijuana in his desk. It is believed that Matthews consumed drugs to stave off his stress.

>In his suicide note, he writes:

>"I'm done. I can't take this anymore. All of this complex furigana, these screwed up themes, this damned long length! There's no way I can finish all of this in a year! And what about after that? Kazuma Kamachi will release more and more novels - faster than I can translate them. I can't do this any more. Yen Press made a mistake to acquire rights for Index. I don't know who this Jay Ess Zero-Six fellow is, but he must be a monster incarnate to be able to translate all of the novels without losing his sanity. You win this time. No, it's your victory forever. I'm going."

I rarely read german translations, but it´s just like with english translations from what I´ve read, sometimes they do change it, sometimes they don´t

It´s usually really bad when they do and never fits

The reason Othinus can sympathize is specifically because she dragged him through hell. The whole point was that Othinus had already gone through everything she forced on Touma and more, which suddenly forced her into confronting the understanding that she created exactly what she was looking for.

>>
>>124440443
Isn't that part of why she refused salvation? Touma didn't want it to end with her killing herself because that's just her running away from her responsibility of atoning for everything she did. It's like the demon king of a story who really committed atoricities being rehabilitated and trying to live a proper life instead of the hero just killing the demon king and ending the story. You can't show a story like that without actually having the villain commit real atrocities. It's the same reason why Accelerator really did kill 10k sisters. Otherwise, it just feels cheap because then there's really nothing to be redeemed from.

Because there was a shred of goodness in her. It was also part of the speech those world leaders made. Would they stomp that bud out or will they let it grow?

>“Will we watch over the goodness budding within the evil that is Othinus? Or will we crush that bud of goodness along with the evil?

Touma believes she's a good person because she can be reasoned with and sacrificed her own dream and life for him even if it meant becoming the enemy of the world. He can't think the same about other magic gods yet.

He's not looking forward in time. He's relying on his gut feeling. Any person experienced in something will gain that sense. Besides, even if he had a magic or scientific ability, do you think that Imagine Breaker will let him use it?

So she lost her power as a magic god but can force teleport Touma with brute strength because a Magic God-class can overcome Imagine Breaker. So is she able to do it only because the world they were in was Norse or is it a trick that she lost her power? I think it's the former but setting her existence as the address to drag Touma out makes it sound like she was still in Touma's world.

Sounds weird if she's powerless but can somehow affect another world. I'll just chalk it up to crossover logic.

it sounds like at first earlier she hijacked herself into that world and scared the shit out of frigg.
after reality adjusted and kicked her ass back to raildexverse it sounds like she brute forced her way into dragging touma's retarded ass back.
so that line of her being powerless is bullshit because 1% of infinite still is infinite.

basically its the equivalent of pretending to be retarded for the sake of not blowing the world to smithereens.

You really think that after all the shit she did if she didn't "lose all her powers" and shrink into a fairy people would have just said "Meh, go live with Touma, whatever" As stupid as Katze is he wouldn't even have a plausible excuse for not locking her up like he said he would if she hadn't turned into a fairy.

I find it very hard to separate NT10 and 9 from each other, without one or the other NT9 doesnt feel done yet, and NT10 obviously rides on what happened in 9 hard. Add to to that how wildly differently they were written, NT9 aybe being better overall written better but NT10 taking the despair that was NT9 and making it a healing novel interspersed with the two constantly trying to get themselves killed for the other and it's just generally hard to judge one without the other.

>“The sea is a symbol of the world’s boundaries. It’s the most obvious symbol of ‘the ends of the earth’, but that isn’t the only such symbol in the Norse world.” Index pointed straight up. “There is also the sky. Even the gods of Asgard can only control the paths of the sun and moon, so a vast expanse must exist there that is not part of the nine worlds. If we pass through there, no seawater will enter this world even if it breaks a hole in the world. There is no need for you to change what you are!!”
>Even the gods of Asgard can only control the paths of the sun and moon, so a vast expanse must exist there that is not part of the nine worlds.
>Walraute made a big deal about how even Odin's throne couldn't find something if it's outside the 9 worlds or on a realm outside the control of gods

And yet Othinus managed to find Touma on a realm outside the 9 worlds and drag him back while being "powerless." That's bullshit yo.
>>
>>124462564
I initially thought Othinus managed to teleport Touma by using the power in Walraute's world but after the detail on how Hliðskjálf can't see outside the 9 realms, I gave up on that idea.
>>
>>124462564
It's obvious it just means she isn't powerless, certainly not in the crossover at least. Recreating the entire universe however you want whenever you want is way more bullshit so I kind of let that sort of stuff slide
>>
>>124461834
It's two sides of the same story. You can judge them separately precisely given how differently written they are as books. NT9 only covers the infinite hell, the different universes Othinus created for millions of years to torture Touma, but in the end she returned them to the original world at the exact time and place where the novel started, focusing absolutely on Touma's character more than anything else, Groundhog day style. That in itself makes NT9 worthy enough of being judged separately altogether from the other novels in the arc. Don't forget that NT8 is also part of the same arc.

NT10 is the continuation of NT8 for everyone else but Touma and Othinus, yes, but obviously is not written at the same level because the boss rush was, well, rushed. Fights were too short to create impact except for two or three, some of them were outright stupid. The relationship development and interactions between Touma and Othinus is the highlight of the entire novel, really.
>>
