true, the LNs/WNs have the advantage of verbosity, especially when it comes to internal monologuing
animu has to show SOMETHING and a minute or longer of still face shot(s) while mental voice explains is a no-no.

Tirst what came to mind is anime ending of Overlord, it had to sacrifice much of explanations compared to text.

LN adaptations tend to be lazily made

There isn't really any attempt to really adapt the story, they just cut internal thoughts and cut down content.

LNs are still largely shit, but LN anime could be a lot better than it currently is.

According to the LN I read about a LN author, there isn't really a concrete difference. LNs share a lot of common features but they're still just novels under a different name.

Japan-based anon here. Most LN have identical aspects: extremely aggressive cover with anime elements and designs, about the same size and number of pages with a few illustrations) illustrations (not counting stuff like Monogatari, Kizu being 357 pages long without illustrations), serialized. I haven't read one yet because my Japanese level is still awful, but LN might very well be the manga for authors that can't draw for shit and who can get only some rare illustrations from a co-illustrator.

Source elitism is fine in cases like F/SN, which is a fifty year old eroge everyone should have checked out solely because of how popular it is. Same goes for a few, select LNs.

But source elitism for a generic LN no one even heard of before the anime adaptation was announced is just pathetic and reeks of desperate tryhardness. Everyone knows you only looked it up so you can look tough in the threads about the anime adaptation. Not to mention that in good 90% of the cases once the anime adaptation ends no one will ever discuss that LN ever again.

They don't even go through the effort of doing that anymore. They read the machine translated manga adaptation instead and complain that the anime adaptation doesn't follow something that is also an adaptation and therefore may have not even followed the source either.

At least when the art is awful and the manga doesn't have a reputation to be amazing beyond that you can filter bad stuff pretty fast.

If the art is good you have something to enjoy even if the story is shit. With LN the writing is almost always pretty shit so you can't filter trough that. You need to actually read it to see if you like the story and characters.
