u seem to be quite buttdevastated, if you're scared of spoilers so much then you shouldn't read /a/, also yeah light novels are generally better since adaptations cut out or change a lot of stuff

I only want Saekanofags to die, is that too much to ask?

Fucking this.

There is almost 0 LN discussion on this site for shit that doesn't have an anime. No one even bothers translating LNs unless they have an anime.

I-It's just the translations i swear.

>>133889409
>strawman
if you don't like something why are you even watching it, but if you like a story or writer then seeing the whole story is better than the cut version, it's like lotr if you didn't like the movies you probably won't like the books either since it's more of the similar stuff but if you liked it you'll have more fun with the books

Joke's on them, I can't even read. I just download subbed anime and just look at it.

I don't. Nor can I read any of the posts on this website.

Not too sure why I even come here. I should be gardening or something.

>>133889511
Good example. The LotR movies actually do a lot to cut out flesh and "focus" the plot and themes more. Writing that's all over the place can sometimes get condensed well in an adaption.

And the fact of the matter is that, the visual and audio elements add another layer to the work that's missing from a VN. Most people just aren't as entertained by reading alone.

Not an LN but the amount of people pretending to have read gakkou gurashi last season was insane. Nobody was reading it, not even in Japan, don't give me this shit.

I'm not saying adaptations are bad just that the original story tends to be more elaborate and constructed, so if you're interested in the story then it's better, but adaptations are cool too, it's nice to see stuff move around, have voices and stuff

>it's like lotr if you didn't like the movies you probably won't like the books either since it's more of the similar stuff but if you liked it you'll have more fun with the books

Except you can actually enjoy good writing, elegant storytelling and no hollywood flashiness.
It's perfectly possible to like the books if you didn't like the movies.

>>133889193
Nah man, most of them are shit. It's the equivalent of fanfiction story but printed and distributed instead. I've even seen better writing on fanfiction dot net than LN it's quite bizarre
>>
>>133889763
That's why I've said "probably", aka for most people but possible exceptions.
>>
>>133889787
That applies more to webnovels, there are actual light novel writers who write decent stuff but yeah there's a lot of pretty low brow lns too. I mostly just read nisio novels to be honest and to be fair those have some cringe stuff too but the stories and characters are pretty interesting.

It's amazing how many people believe this to justify bad subs

Most LNs are really not hugely different because it's a "light" format itself. You might lose some character thoughts or clever wordplay if they aren't directed Haruhi or Monogatari autism tier but it's easy to keep most things in at the typical pace.

On the other hand there are some really rushed LN adaptions and most major VNs have a massive volume of text, so you can lose even fairly basic stuff about the scenario and character motivations as they skim through the plot in full advertising mode, depending on the skill of the director and writer..
