If length is correlated with quality. Then the 1st volume of the LN for Myriad Colour Phantom Wars is great because it's +300 pages long.

I feel like an SS officer fighting on the Eastern Front in 1944 to be honest.

The translated material is more than 1900 pages. That's almost triple the length of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Not quite as eloquent as the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but it is surprisingly well-written.

>>133739547
I have read a lot of LNs, but again, most have boring prose, I really have no idea if it´s the fault of the translator or the source just don´t translate all that well. But if you just seek enjoyable content that have well written characters at least:

Densetsu no Yūsha no Densetsu - Berserk without the dark fantasy monster rape and gore. And the MC is a mage helping his king friend protect his kingdom while traveling with one girl, later another to find legendary items. Might be up your ally if you like fantasy and adventures with brooding war in the backdrop.

Shield Hero might be fun, but is a chore to read with more shitty power absorption and grind exposition. But is one that starts of great and just goes down hill.

I have no idea what you seek, so just some random fantasy LNs.
>>
>>133740092
Forgot to add, you will find much less MC dicksucking and self masturbation on these. But that is a plus in my book, no idea about you.
>>
>>133736742
>Secondaries
If it's translated why not, if you actually enjoy/like the show?

When the show finished airing only Dai Densetsu shit had been translated.

>>133739991
No, the 1900 pages is across the entire series. 190 pages is just the smallest volume.

That's literally the only thing I dislike about Overlord. There's too much SASUGA AINZ-SAMA through the entire thing. The inner monologue states that he actually has no idea what he's doing, but that's irrelevant when he is still infallible.

Yeah is otaku pandering. Whenever the MC is living the power fantasy dream, it is self masturbating.

In general, most LNs are shit. But they are fun shit to read. There's a lot of bad stuff, but that's what makes reading it so fun. They are definitely not the epitome of literature, but because I've pretty much succumbed to watching all the shitty anime, shitty LNs aren't so bad either. And there is a ton of shit. Like really bad harem shits. All of it is terrible. But I read it anyways.
>>
>>133741050
Except they do, at least when there are no secondaries like in most Shomin threads or when the thread is purely about the LN like in translation threads.
>>
>>133741258
The first LN I was tricked into reading was spice and wolf, then Fate Zero, then Kara no Kyoukai, then kizumonogatari because I fell for the "source material is always superior," troll. They were all bad, I'm never falling for LN fags lies again. Still mad I soiled kizu when I should've just waited for the superior anime.
>>
>>133741465
Of those I have only read Spice and Wolf, but it is great. What didn't you like about it?
>>
>>133741445
>Except they do
The only time I see LNfags being stuck up and boorish is for shitty series where only those kinds of people would be reading that shit in the first place.

>when there are no secondaries like in most Shomin threads or when the thread is purely about the LN like in translation threads.

The only thing I enjoyed was the dialogue between Holo and Lawrence. Everything else was a never ending ride of dull that's terribly presented and written at a middle school level. And just like pretty much every other LN ever, it overstays its welcome. Fucking 17 volumes for what?

It's good to read the source material, but LNs do tend to have kind of shitty writing, which is why they include pictures and are called "light" novels. It's like pseudo-anime. If you have real writing skills, you write actual novels, not chuunibyou fantasy stories.

Yeah, but that's not generally why LNfags tell you to pick up the source material. This is generally how it goes.

Well, anime adaptions will miss details here and there. That's pretty much it. Like anime is basically just a summary for LNs really, and how good an adaption is based on how well someone can summarize that shit to fit into 23 minute intervals.

For one, it's not an actual harem despite your assertion. The protagonist commits himself to one girl early on and what little competition for his affection remains is insignificant. The seeminlgy stereotypical imouto actually comes to support her brother's decision. The relationship between the two leads is executed in a way you rarely even see in actual novels, nevermind light novels. The magical highschool setting may not be the most original, but the way it works with it is what elevates Rakudai above the others.

No, the anime was rushed and it changed the order of events to make it fit the battle shounen feel, but it didnt really skip much. Unless you're talking about route a which threw the original plot out the middle and gimped the 2nd best fight of the series to the point that it was just a choreographed dance routine

I read at least 20 books per year, not counting the ones from uni. Accept it, reading is pretty boring and that's why the authors need to tell an interesting story or get inventive with their style or language, since they can't get to put cute girls or well-known actors to sell their shit. LNs' originality, for whatever reason, appears to be limited to their titles.

I like anime, I really do. I keep up with release schedules. I watch a minimum 4-5 shows per season. I become sexually excited from shitposting in recommendation threads. I'm fine with most of the standard cliches in shows, and I've evengrown to like some of them. But I can't understand why people read LNs.

We live in an era that allows you to load up any browser and almost instantly access a free library of almost every classic novel in the public domain. That's all the works of James Joyce, Mark Twain, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Jules Verne, Feodor Dostoevsky, Edgar Allen Poe, P. G. Wodehouse. An incredibly large sampling of historically acclaimed works, in any genre you like, for free, instantly available. If you've read all the classics, or want something more recent, any decent library has thousands more books with an even greater range of authors. If you don't want to leave your house, there's Amazon. If you're just plain cheap, anything that more than five people have read is up for download somewhere.

I'm sincerely not trying to be incendiary here. I just can't understand why, with such a massive and convenient selection of books available in the world, people specifically seek out the medium that has consistent problems with awkward translations, stifling prose, cookie-cutter settings and plots, and generally being written for teenagers. I just don't understand. With all that is available, why focus on LNs?

You could say the same about anime, yet here we are.

Also, unless you're willing to give up entirely on airing anime and just sticking to very old anime that have received endings, have fun being cu.cked by LNs. Anime ending abruptly to force people to read the source material has been happening as early as the Haruhi Suzumiya anime.

We live in an era that allows you to load up any browser and almost instantly access a free, pirated library of every highly acclaimed western TV show ever produced. That includes Twin Peaks, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, anything done by Joss Whedon, The Wire and countless others. An incredibly large sampling from across all genres, whatever you like, for free, instantly available.

Why, with such a massive and convenient selection of excellent series available in the world, do you specifically seek out the medium that has consistent problems with awkward translations, ludicrous premises, cookie-cutter settings and plots, entire casts who are nothing more than walking clichees, and generally being written for teenagers?

Anime doesn't really have any alternatives. Ignoring all qualitative arguments, most western animation is strictly comedy focused and devoid of any long-term connecting plot. If you want a serious, season long animated series, anime is really ll you have. That's not the case with LNs. The only way LNs are even slightly unique in terms of structure is being serialized, and that only slightly narrows the comparative field.

Piratebay's convenience is dependent on the number of seeders a show has, varies widely in file quality, and, not that anybody here cares, is illegal.

Good luck watching anything semi-obscure from more than a few years ago without being prepared to wait a month in advance.

But, we still have all those other tropes of generic harem. And if you ever read any other generic harem, they all have ONE original thing, but its just one, like Rakudai. So its shit.
Rakudai is literally a generic harem in every sense with the exception of the romance, every other trope is there and being used. And the romance is shit by the way.

Next, you are going to tell me MANga is for man.
There isn't a meaning behind the name " light novel". Japan just ran by a bunch of names to address these novels with illustrations slapped in them, then eventually, the one that clicked the most on the net in terms of being the easiest to say and has the most identity from the others was "light novel". Sort of like how the west just calls all Japanese comics as manga, there's no meaning to it, it's just a term that's easy to say and gives an identity to these books. Then Fujimishobo adopted it as a handle name for "fantasy novel".

a Harem doesn't mean any anime where the MC's dick is lusted over by many girls, it's kind of its own genre now. A Harem is an anime where there is a group of girls who might or might not like the MC and the interactions they have at school/battles whatever. Like IS or Haganai.

They always have the beach/pool/festival/beach/sports festival episode and an arc that develops every female character.

Discussing LNs is much better because the standard shitposter isn't willing to read through a book in order to post his low effort idiotic shitpost.

It's quite laughable. Then you can point at those people and laugh.

Speaking of Kumoko, the new translators don't seem to be much better than the old one. I could barely make sense out of the new chapter since Shiraori's explanation about magic made little sense and they managed to confuse which characters were speaking to each other as well.

If you haven't noticed, works of otaku culture tend to have little to no literary merit. The visual aspect is 75% of the appeal for anime and manga. Also, LNs require the author to write more than just dialogue, which makes it worse.

No LN I like and there are only really been have been done quickly. I always have to wait months after a volume release.

Also every poster who tells you read the LN is an asshole. If I'm in a thread for an anime that's from an LN I've read I'll just answer any questions you have. I don't see why I should expect someone to read a book that's not even professionally published in English because I have. I detest this about fatefags more than anything else.

What's even worse is when LNfags tell you to read the LN, then they point you towards a fan translation.

If you read LNs to practice Japanese, that's fine. But if you read a shitty fan version of a pulp novel aimed at middle school kids you are the height of pathetic.

Really? How much do things change in the near future? As it stands Raikudai has way less going on outside the cutesy relationship stuff than its peers. It's arguably more generic than them and it seems like its fans just tout the fact that the hero is already dating the main girl as the only reason it stands above the rest. Almost nothing about the plot or even specific scenes change if Stella and Ikki aren't dating.

If it has a male MC, one (or less) token male friend, three (or more) girls (implicitly or explicitly) interested in MC, it's a harem.
Monogatari is a harem. Haruhi is a harem.

But there is literally nothing wrong with liking harems, and faggots who endlessly cry about haremshit should be gassed alongside faggots who endlessly cry about "moeshit".

Yeah, but generally the differences aren't near large enough to warrant going to read the source material. For example, Black God's adaptation by Sunrise was COMPLETELY different from the manga, MC's personality, FeMC's fighting style, the setting, everything was changed. In this case I would suggest someone to read the source material. Either that or the anime goes an original route. Anything less is not worth telling someone, not invested into the series, to read the source material just to enjoy the adaptation.

Because you seem to be implying with it that a single post about which light novel to read in a thread about light novels is the same as a thread being made for the sole purpose of getting anime recommendations. So, you are asserting that asking a question is identical to the thread being about that question. By that logic, my previous post made this thread about tomboys.

Many of your examples might be on a different level of writing from most, if not all, LNs, but that doesn't mean I want to read them. If I'm not interested in the topic then I couldn't care less how purple their prose is or how artfully done their underlying messages are.
