When Raita's sketch for a crippled girls eroge was posted and we fell in love with it, 4LS delivered a fucking eroge.

When the plot for an anime got posted and we fell in love with it, this faggot delivered a shit-tier light novel instead.

>A boy? A girl?
It's not just a boy.
It's a boy that falls in love with a girl, and unable to confess, he is gifted with by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

I put off reading this shit before and I regret not maintaining that. Just reading that first chapter was a terrible experience through and through now that I decided to see what this shit was about.

Why would anyone ever want to watch this?
How the hell can someone relate to a main character with those traits and that position in society?
Does this actually somehow get better later? Is that even possible?
What would the point of getting this made into an anime be?

Also

>>135299932
Just wait for the maid to clean off the casting couch

>>135305911
But there's no original character in that boy or that girl. They have no defined characteristics.

Your definition here >>135305815 presents a loophole that allows authors to make derivative works out of this concept without actually being just fan fiction.

And it's not made by the original author (Hataki).

>It's not a fanfic if it not based on something

Girl is defined by
>doesn't have a crush on boy

Alternate reality girl is defined by
>has a crush on boy

Alternate reality boy is defined by
>doesn't have a crush on girl

And then they're further developed throughout the story as boy and alternate girl give eachother tips on how to win the hearts of their alternate selves. There's a clear plot, clear characters involved. What more do you want.

Define work. And explain why the original copypasta is not work.

>vague concepts
It's not a vague concept, the pasta tells a concise story, even if it's open ended.
>>
>>135306209
But that's enough to establish them as definable and separated from any other character. We have specific traits about them, that's all we need.

>>135306237
The concept is pretty fleshed out, wouldn't call it vague.
>>
>>135306240

That's what the definition is describing, though.
>>
>>135306298
No it's not. If it was, it'd use the word "copyright".
>>
>>135306209
>They have no names, personalities, or even appearances
This doesn't matter as long as you can tell those character apart from others.
There are many well-established stories without named characters, or characters we don't know how they look like, or even characters without clear personalities.
>>
>>135306279
>>135306280
Fan fiction refers to published works, though.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fanfic

noun, Informal.
1.
fiction written by fans of a TV series, movie, etc., using existing characters and situations to develop new plots.
2.
a work of fiction in this genre.

"Movie" doesn't imply it's a copyrighted or published movie, and the "etc" is a huge open end that could include whatever the fuck could serve as inspiration for the fanfic.

Oh, the "published" argument is bullshit anyway, since one can argue that the keitai copypasta is indeed "published"

The copypasta falls under all the following definitions of the word:

>to submit (content) online, as to a message board or blog

Permavirgin falls in love with a 6 foot giantess, each of whom had a childhood friend in the mix, and the plot rolls from there.

Like?
>>
>>135308753
Unrealistic and sometimes even cliched personalities and reactions, some slight use of classic anime/manga character archetypes, poor character development, and inadequate dialogues/personalities/emotional response for the ages of the characters, sometimes being too childish and sometimes too mature.

>>
>>135308851

Visual gags that don't work in text form, for example, the classic "punch a male character in response to being annoying".

I'm not the same anon who's talking about the characters, by the way.

I respect the author for trying, but he needs to work on his writing, and if you can't recognize that the writing isn't of high quality you really need to step away from the keyboard and pick up a real book.
>>
>>135308910

That never actually happens in the story.

This classic anime gag does not work in a text medium, because you can't fall back on cartoon physics to make it funny. No actual student is going to kick one of their classmates so hard that they get knocked to the floor unless they're actually in a full-blown fight, and so it yanks you right out of the story.

And like I said, if you can't see the problems here, you need to get off /a/ and read a book.
>>
>>135309053

I have no idea how I would have written it, nor whether I would do a better job. Frankly, I don't think that the author's approach to the concept was the problem, that was fine. The problem lies in the execution.
>>
>>135309115

You are aware this is a common occurrence in LN, right?

>>
>>135309166

I don't read LNs, but I'd find it just as shit there.

>>135309200

The sentence structure and word choice in general, as well as the over-reliance on anime cliches and archetypes. You can tell that the story was written by somebody from a place like this thanks to the anime tropes and specific focus on anime - related interests leaking through.

It's better written, technically speaking, than most fanfiction, I'll give it that, but not quite well enough to be on the same level as a decent published work.
>>
>>135309285
>You can tell that the story was written by somebody from a place like this

>>
>>135309249

Anon, did you not read my post about why the gag doesn't work in a *text* medium? While I do often find it cliche in anime, it doesn't pull me out of a show the same way because shows typically use exaggerated physics to ramp up the silliness and make the joke work.

Books, having inherently different strengths and weaknesses as a medium, can't approach storytelling the same way. Something that works in a book may not work in a show, and vice versa.
>>
>>135309349
>Anon, did you not read my post about why the gag doesn't work in a *text* medium?

I see where you're coming from, but in LN that's a common occurence and not necessarily a "visual" gag.
>>
>>135309386

I believe it, but it wouldn't work for me in an LN either. That's my personal take, of course, but it just feels like trying to copy-paste jokes from anime or even manga instead of playing to writing's strengths and avoiding the weaknesses.

do what KS did I suppose
>>
Somebody would need to write a teleplay for a pilot. I assume in spite of its pretensions, Keit-Ai would be a work in English, so that would be the first step.

I am taking a screenwriting course next semester. The lady teaching it hasn't gotten any scripts published, but she did win the National Book Award like 30 years ago. It's a little pulpy, but maybe I'll try it.
>>
>>135309648
I think we should start with aiming for a manga. Heck, we could probably crowdfund enough to commission a good writer and a good artist to create a couple chapters. To get the ball rolling. Aiming for an anime off the bat would be impossible because of how much it'd cost in terms of manpower.

It is. And it was a good joke back when it wasn't being repeated every single day.

Honestly though Keit-ai would be better than any kind of romance anime that came out in these 10 years barring maybe one or two. I mean I can't even remember when was the last time I've watched something that was not Hana Yori Dango 2.0: Adjusted for 201x Edition with a twist.

It can't even be spelled like that.
It's a Japanese word and it's kei-tai.
You can't have Keit, the only way of wrtiting it down would be Keito, but then it doesn't even make sense when you're trying to make a put out of a Japanese word.
So if it's supposed to be an anime, but you can't even write the title down in Japanse without it sounding retarded and losing all meaning, it's not gonna happen, ever.

It shouldn't be a problem finding writers considering Keit-ai is a well know meme right now. Probably every person that would be willing to help thought about it for a second. I could try writing something, but only when we have a proper evaluation process, I don't wanna rush in and spend time on it when there's no chance of it happening. We should first see who's eager to help Keit-ai find a way.
>>
>>135314835
Will there be only one heroine? I haven't read the fanfic, I'll only read it if people decide to use that as a base.
I was thinking about a childhood friend that wants MC to stop with the bullshit because she doesn't want him to get hurt, and maybe some other girl that tries to help him and falls in love with him in the process.
>>
>>135315006
I haven't read it either, but I don't believe it would serve as a good base. Judging by the fact one of the chapters is called "The Friend Zone Harem" you can say the author didn't really take it seriously.

I have nothing against multiple heroines, it could actually be kinda cool seeing how the AU girl helps the MC to score some other girl in his universe getting sad and depressed in the end.

If we're doing multiple endings, we should obviously include:

Main heroine route (Good end) - they both get their respective love interests
Childhood friend route
Some other girl in love with MC route
AU main heroine route (Normal end) - >>135305622
AU main heroine route (Good end) - unlockable after finishing the game with specific conditions, they fell in love but can't do anything about it
AU main heroine route (True end) - they make physical contact with each other and live happily ever after

But if we're doing the two other girls, we should make sure they stay deeply tied to the plot, otherwise it would look like a bad fanfic.

>>135315958
