Jesus Christ, just how are these by the numbers shitty LN adaptations getting made? Hundred, Chivalry of a Failed Knight and The Asterisk War are literally the same first episode over and over again.

Why does /a/ bring shitty irrelevant e-celebs up so often nowadays? I feel like we're getting closer and closer to /v/.

anime are advertisements. LN series benefit even more than manga from an anime adaptation, because LNs are not serialized in magazines and they need the additional promotion, in order for fans to recognize the name and find the book among the shelves and among the hundreds of competitors. LNs have a wide audience but each single series struggles to stand apart from the others, that is why in this competitive space producers are eager to pay for adaptations, and why LNs have such ridiculous gaudy titles in order to stand out and be noticed. paying for an adaptation for your LN is a good investment.
and they offer the anime studio more creative freedom in the storyboard so studios like it as well. its a more interesting job than just recreating a comic book frame by frame.

So why don't you watch the motorcycle anime?
Alternatively get a job so your mind is not occupied by LN Harem anime.
Heck this season we only have Asterisk and Hundred for our battle harem anime.

>>139611011
That only happens in these fantasy battle harem anime, which you can tell how good both the anime and their fanbases are I guess.

>>
>>139612115
Wasn't Asterisk the IS 2.0?
>>
>>139608157
To be fair, Asterisk has a female lead that's not "absolutely" cookie cutter, and the animation and music are decent.

Besides that, just don't fucking watch. We've always know that the Japs have garbage taste, no need to make a thread about it.

>>139608157
Anything unique about this one. I only gave Rakudai a chance because they actually get together early. Yes, I know that doesn't make it good, but it was just enough of a novelty to get me in the door.
>>
>>139612765
Not actually a full Ojou or Tsundere though.

I checked the first episode of S2 to see if her character had developed at all, and surprisingly it has. She doesn't at all seem like a big tsundere or ojou any more at this point.
>>
>>139609862
I'm just here for drill tits
>>
>>139612441
Nah, she's pretty cookie cutter. You're right about the other two things though. That's the only good thing it has going for it, it looks and sounds nicer than other generic LN adaptations of the same type.

Nope, blame shonenfags like One Piece fags.

>>
>>139608157
At least 80% of the dialogue wasn't exposition in the first episode like usual. And the set-up for MC to fight generic drill didn't involve a coincidence and boob grab but instead was a result of the choices of MC and the trap. I don't expect much from this but at least it wasn't a complete paint-by-the-numbers start.
>>
>>139612995
Neither was Stella though.
Actually she was more original because she gets to be with the MC pretty early on.
Even so both are pretty far away of being unique characters.
>>
>>139612764
Did Bahamut do anything well? I dropped it after the first episode since it was the most generic battle harem thing I had ever seen before. 75% exposition dialogue, every trope in the book and awful animation.
>>
>>139613259
They do?
Even so, rarely the threads I lurk I see someone mentionin any kind of Youtuber in them, unlike /v/ where you always see one.
>>
>>139612846
And the MC wasn't the usual insecure beta that is usually the fare in these kinds of anime. I also thought the battles were rather good too.
>>
>>139613878

>anon tries to justify his garbage taste

>Why even bother?
because separating them shows you actually know why or how bad something is. Your inability to do so just means you're a fucking pleb
>>
>>139614135
Good thing I dropped it then, I thought the girls were bland as hell and I don't think I would be able to tell them apart from any other battle harem girls.
>>
>>139614356
Not even anime.
It's alright impossible to be 100% original, but the thing is that it IS possible to do something more unique if you are creative and good at writing.
The fact that we get a lot of anime with repetitive tropes is more an indication that the LN is either full of lazy writers or full of people that doesn't like unique things or both.
>>
>>139614616
>that the LN is either full of lazy writers (...)
LN market*.
>>
>>139614457
I prefer manga. Which also has tons of clichés.
I'm not even saying they're good or bad, it is what it is. I watch battleshounen, moeshit, manime, harems, SoL, romance, shoujosjit, 2deep4u, edgy grimdark, etc.

They are all filled with cliches. Every genre and type of show.
>>
i think i've seen this show before.
must be dejavu
>>
>>139614576
The only thing I have saved from Bahamut is one full stitch of busty blonde girl and some cropped shots of blur haired girl's ass in tights
>>
>>139614669
Cliches existing and something being cliche aren't the same thing, turd-burglar
>>
>>139614742
Anime is almost all cliche. I mean that both ways.
The entire premise of the show, and the things that happen. Some have one, some have the other, some have both.

But anime' cliche/show per capita is very high.
>>
>>139614861
What the hell is your definition of cliche?
Because it seems awfully broad.
>>
>>139610079
It needed to stop a long time ago.
>>
>>139614906
An element or part of a series used over and over again rebranded with different names, people, places, or settings.

Cliche doesn't mean bad in my opinion.

>>139608157

Just, why? I mean, the only half decent LN to anime I've seen so far has been Hataraku Maou-sama (which wasn't even great, just ok) and Overlord. Do these extended LN ads just sell really well or something?

Would it have killed them to have Emile be actually male? That alone would make Hundred stand out, but, as it is, it just asks to be forgotten right as the adaptation finishes airing.

Yes, or at least sometimes.

>>
>>139615329
They temporarily bump a crop of books in store by being shitty enough to convince people to read the rest instead, or just by highlighting their existence in a super saturated market

The problem is probably that decent to good LNs only get anime if their publishers want to make a deal with the devil, aka aniplex
>>
While watching this, it made me think how Madan no Ou to Vanadis is actually pretty unique in comparison despite being kinda generic.
It also made think if I could remember any other LN adaptation that isn't like this, Asterisk, Rakudai or IS.
>>
Generic harem shows are love and life, I'll never get tired of them and I'm glad that Japan never will either.
They also do a damn fine job of reminding normalfags that anime isn't for them.

japanese dont like to experiement or take risks. they like the same story, over and over, with little variation. you can see this in the way they make different products besides ln and anime. You can go into a store that specializes in something weird, like frogs, and the entire fucking store will be 'frog this' and 'frog that'. Their mascots will be a frog, the waitresses will have little frog themed hats or outfits, their catchphrase will be frog centric, all their fucking food will be frog something or the other, and they will never deviate from their preset theme.

Harem shows are fun. Only personal problem with them is for some to actually cover more material other than 10-12 episodes. Blade Dance being one of them. Really enjoyed Kanojo Flag since that had a concrete ending as well.

I physically burst into laughter reading this.

At this point I'm just watching one or two of these interchangable garbage series for cheap laughs and to cleanse my palette in between other shows. Sometimes I drop them, but for some reason I've grown accustomed to having one or two per season.

As long as all anime doesn't eventually become 1 cour adaptations of ongoing LN battle harems with CG battlesuit mechs, a cardboard cutout undergod MC with a secret "unlimited potential special snowflake power" and a bunch of main girls who are princesses and the like with "totally legit responsibilities and duties and real personalities stemming from those unique and interesting motivations" then I'll be ok.

I'm actually doing Asterisk this season, but I'd probably watch this as well if this season wasn't so stacked already.

I'm glad someone knows what I'm talking about, though. I'm not one of those retards who will sit there and pretend haremshit is what anime is all about and you simply have to love them 100% or anime isn't for you, but I kind of like having one or two around per season. Plus the threads are always fun to funpost in, especially when spoilers in broken English start getting posted.

Actually, the west is already oversaturated with YA novels with mary sues saving the world. At least with their movie adaptations.

To be fair, LNs are closer to porn.
>>
>>139634289
>Anon you might as well be complaining about the oversaturation of YA novels in the west. Especially the ones with mary sue saving the world.

Which novels would this be? I don't even keep up with YA novels but I honestly wouldn't doubt you. The thing is the west hardly gets if not any YA novel cartoons compared to Harem LN anime in the east.

That's because they get movies instead if they hit it big.

Japan also has a much, much larger male audience for YA fiction.

Shitty harem fiction doesn't exist in the west simply because teenage boys don't like reading enough. Which is why all shitty YA fiction is reverse harem instead, where a teenage girl becomes the savior of the world while getting into hijinks with hot, troubled hunks.

That, and the fact that every guy wants variety in women, and lots of insecure guys like the fantasy of stealing women from other places/men, combined with Japans strong sense of nationalism superiority complex the otaku watching it probably think "Yeah all these foreign girls see how superior japanese men are and leave their own men to come fuck me".

Even among shitty LN adaptations, that first episode was among the worst I've seen.

This protag has literally nothing going on for him. Its been quite some time since I've seen such a flat protag sheesh. And they didn't even show the first shitty battle in the episode what the fuck.

Like show more of the training or give the MC some depth by properly introducing his past or something.

How? At least Ichika has some semblance of personality. The MC of this is off to a worse start already, which is shocking that such a thing is even possible. Ichika is dense as fuck but at least he figured out the reverse trap situation when he saw france in the nude. This faggot sees reverse trap in a towel putting panties on and can't even begin to put 2&2 together.

I didn't want to know such a bland MC could even be accomplished.

In the year 2122, humanity has entered a new age of peace.

National disputes of the old, once solved through violence, are now determined through battles between "SPers" (pronounced espers), utilizing full-dive virtual reality technology to enter the global network system known as the "Fourth Concept Hardware Actualized Network" to fight in virtual representative matches with weapons created from their words, "Materialized Electronic Message Entities".

MC, a student at the SPer Candidacy Academy, is known as "For Another Generation" due being unable to use anything but the most outdated Materialized Electronic Message Entities. However, his life is irrevocably changed one day when the heroine, one of the school's elite "Named Ones", challenges him to a match with her pride on the line.

You do know WHY series like Hundred and Chivalry and Asterisk are all adapted regularly, right?

Around the 90s, Japan got hit by a huge recession. While their economy obviously suffered for it, the biggest problem was their culture was dwindling. Japanese people, as it turns out, were buying less and less of their own products. Even TV shows, which air for free, were being watched less often.

Because of this, there were two kinds of people Japan's culture started pandering to - otaku and yankii, whose entire existences center around buying Japanese products. While there are enough people here that like otaku-centered products that they're more well known than whatever products are made for yankii.

So long story short, Japan's economy is such a wreck that they have to cater to the lowest common denominator. Which isn't that rare of an occurrence, seeing as we have similar problems here, but you'd be deluded to think this trend will stop anytime soon.

As for WHY, that's a simple question: wish fulfillment. With the Japanese economy being as shit as it is, there is less of a push for traditional Japanese values, such as starting a family. Otaku, who gave up finding women in the three-dimensional plane, are fine with the wish fulfillment they're given. They don't even care about the way they're given it - you could repackage the same battle harem or reincarnation series a thousand times and they'd still buy ten copies. And let's not delude ourselves by saying we'd be above this crap. You've liked some sort of wish fulfillment series in one way or another.

OK, I take that back on Kuusen, but anime didn't do justice on it's LN art tho. It still flopped hard.
>>
Im going to write an LN about a guy who writes LNs.

He comes up with these genius plots but every time he sends them to his publisher they get shot down. One day, after his latest LN being shot down, he gets mad and writes the most generic drivel ever and sends it in. It becomes an overnight success. The author continues to write the series and makes it more and more hammy and retarded in an attempt to show people how stupid it is, but instead the sales just get better.

In the end he stops writing and his publisher starts hounding him for new books. He goes into hiding as he starts getting chased by not only an agent of his publisher, but other publisher's agents as well. They all have generic anime archetype personalities.

This is a good question, actually. I think it comes down to the fact that there's a somewhat embarrassing layer of wish fulfillment that comes with shows like this one, and other shows that resemble it. Or at least it's embarrassing and intolerable to some people. And it's something that I don't think exists in SOL shows. The latter also don't rely so heavily on having a distinguishable plot anyhow, aside from the vague "a group of friends go to school together", so it's a little difficult to notice how similar they are.

While the shows at their core are the same, and the premises almost identical to the point the first episode is the same with a different coat of paint, they usually start breaking off from the path as time goes on.
>Infinite Stratos, the template, remains in a high school status quo limbo.
>Asterisk has the MC find what he was looking for while also having the school life be in the background while character motivations unfurl.
>Antimagic as gone full Metal Gear Rising with its cuhrayzee shit
There's a lot of the sameness, but they must change around something or bring better hooks to the table if they want to stay relevant and stick out from the rest, it's like watching evolution in progress; always the same core yet it tries something new every time to stay relevant or die; new girls, other main heroines, dragon girls, sword girls, incestual undertones, different setting, different timeline, magic or no magic, different weapon/powers, switching around character archetypes, adding a new layer of action and "plot" by creating "Savages" or "Abysses", ect.
Obviously it goes in circles but it's interesting to note, like watching the first creature that developed lungs struggle on land because it hasn't developed legs yet.
Harems and LNs are still the fast food of the industry, making up what they lack in quality with quantity, I have no delusions that what I subject myself to isn't mediocre at best, but I'll still watch some for this reason and for the fap bait also, arguing with you guys about seasonal harem is fun.

I think Antimagic showcases the publisher dilemna very clearly. The author states that he originally had no high school and the MC was never meant to be Kusanagi. No doubt after sending it to the publishers they turned around and said "add a high school, make it harem and then we'll talk". And the fact he completely ditches the high school setting after the 5th book probably shows how much he didn't want it and was only allowed to get rid of it after he was given more freedom.

To be fair I don't think most of those were terrible its just that they are so...devoid of their own soul or personality. Highschhol, summoned weapons, technomagic style...all are the same, is not that the formula doesn't work but lot of those shows would improbe a lot if they just tried to make it more personal, which leads us to...

>>139643149
That I think confusing the shows with the source material.

I mean, what he says is true but is true for the novels, not for the anime. Doesn't matter how much it evolves or improves the LN and becomes its own thing if everything we manage to see in the anime is the generic part.
>>
>>139643649
>Implying.
Even though the numbers are huge it's still a minority and despite what anime might make one think there's a stigma attached to it, reading a long running shounen or playing mobage on the commute to work is one thing, harem shows and merch are another.
The west has this same thing happening, only replace anime with video games; people that work and spend their free money on nothing but games, pc parts, consoles and video game related merch.
What is escapism or wish fulfillment to some isn't for others, but spending your cash on things you enjoy is universal.

What? how do you reason that?
Harems and ecchi shit isn't the kind of stuff you advertise yourself watching and since normalfags have the lowest powerlevel, what comes after battle shounen is seinen, which has the same qualities of shounen but it's edgier and more "mature" because it has blood, death and 2deep4u "thought provoking" stuff in it.
>>

Studios have their own internal numbers, but the fact that battle harems have lasted so long shows reasonable profits, sometimes if a studio is in the red making a shitt battle harem is better than doing nothing because it will lower the operating loss.

Had a very odd sense of deja vu watching it till I realized I came up with a setting very similarly set up to this years ago. Special island ship run by an AI, MC moving to said island with his imouto who wants his dick, white haired heroine who should be dead, etc. Wasn't a battle harem though and its plot was sci-fi spy thrillerish centered around MC's timeslipped imouto closed timeloop and supertech hoarded on the island but kinda funny to see so many superficial similarities here.

If you had, one shot, or one opportunity, to seize everything you ever wanted. In one moment. Would you capture it, or just let it slip?

So what did he do, cut the nukes in half hence rendering them useless with his 1000 times folded katana?

I think it is more so the regular nip reader/watcher can easily self-insert than nationalist crap to be honest. Although I hate it too.

Nip girls are generally on the more ugly side of the Asian spectrum.

There's a point where you can't just hold on to your suspension of disbelief, anon. A line that divides the food for thought what if's and the outright silly.
American circlejerks are just as bad, with their "AMERICA NUMBER ONE" and "Muh freedom" while steam rolling everything with the power of money. If it was about Japanese teaming up with Germany and the rest of the axis to win the war with that nip leading the japanese forefront and being one of the MVP of the war then it would make more sense, but that right there is just too much.

The muh japanese katana folded 1000 times I guess.
Also, the only foreigner in Rakudai is Stella as far as I remember. Imouto, the black haired girl and the thunder tits megane were all japanese, even if their haircolor doesn't suggest they are.
