Why did this turn to haremshit after the first arc? Give me my seriousness from Orcus back.
>>
because it sucks

>>139706181
The start was shit, but I liked it until they cleared the first dungeon and more and more girls kept being added.
>>
>>139705547
Story unorganized, harem shit pandering, terrible slice of life attempts, terrible character progression, uninteresting dialogue, hypocritical mc. It was never even proofread.
>>
>>139706752
I don't even know why the slice of life was there. I wanted Hajime to stay as grimdark edgy Naofumi but his character progression went in the opposite direction.

Shameless rabbit only good for her tits. The only girl other than Yue I liked was Miledi.

Got interested in isekai stuff again after Re:Zero and didn't want something that had hardly anything translated. The reunion chapters were nice but after that I couldn't take it anymore.

>Got interested in isekai stuff again after Re:Zero and didn't want something that had hardly anything translated
There are plenty of other Japanese and Chinese alternatives
>>
>>139708672
I've read some of the main ones like Shieldbro, Mushoku Tensei, Re:Monster, Kuro no Maou. Anything you'd recommend?
>>
>>139708752
Well, have you ever tried reading the Chinese stuff that's been translated? There's actually a shitload of reincarnation/spirited away to other world/vrmmorpg shit that's been TLed.

As for japanshit you've listed most of the main ones. The only one I can think of off the top of my head that you're missing is hachinan tte, but that one is sort of awful. And by sort of I mean very.

Kouritsu Kuriya Madoushi, Daini no Jinsei de Madou o Kiwameru is a rebirth, but there's only 20-30 chapters TLed and the TLer quit.
>>
>>139708929
>>139708752
Oh right, there's also Tsukuyote new saga, which is a rebirth. Can't think of any other nip stuff off the top of my head.
>>
>>139708929
>>139709128
I've seen some stuff on Wuxiaworld, what are the good ones?

Neither of those nip ones seem too great, but they can't end up worse than Arifureta.
>>
>>139709261
>I've seen some stuff on Wuxiaworld, what are the good ones?
What kind of stuff are you into? Right now I'm enjoying True Martial World on gravity translations but I've read most of what is available out there.

>but they can't end up worse than Arifureta.
Hachinan tte is much worse. Literally the worst WN i've ever read.
>>
>>139709394
Epic fantasies, good plot twists, suffering. Isekai isn't necessary if the story is good. Something like Mushoku Tensei I guess. Also lolis if possible.
>>
>>139709527
Best bet is probably true martial world.
A lot of people would recommend ISSTH on wuxiaworld, but I personally don't like it that much.
If you ask about a specific series I could probably tell you more about it. So far I'm familiar with:

Against the Gods
Wu Dong Qian Kun
Coiling Dragon
Battle through the heavens
Martial God Asura
The Great Ruler
Tales of demons and gods
God and Devil World
Apocalypse Cockroach
True martial world
Martial world
world of cultivation
I shall seal the heavens
demons diary
a record of a mortal's journey to immortality
zhan long
Upgrade specialist in a new world
Renegade Immortal
>>
>>139709716
I've heard of Coiling Dragon and Martial God Asura in passing. Are they worth the time investment?
>>
I wish there were some good translations after the first guy quit.
>>
>>139709817
CD is pretty nice initially, but then goes to crap about halfway through. Sort of like Arifureta.
I'd say it all goes downhill after he resolves all his conflicts on the Yulan continent and ascends to the next realm

Martial god asura is like the mcdonalds of the xianxia genre. It has a little bit of everything, not very good but still tasty from time to time.

If you're new to the genre you'd probably enjoy reading both, at least to the halfway point at least.

TMW is superior to both of the above though, and it's still going strong atm (~chapter 350)
>>

Will we ever get translations again
Is the WN complete already in nipland?
>>
>>139710079
I think it's complete.
>>
>>139705547
Why the hell does Nagumo want to return to nipland for when he could live like a magical emperor king in this new world?

I could imagine wanted to go back for a visit, but permanent relocation?

Why does Tio even exist in the story. Why the fuck doesn't he give shia the D?
>>
>>139710014
The first guy quit? I stopped reading at about chapter ~100.

>>139710023

I liked Tio better than Shia actually. I was perfectly happy with Yue being the legal wife and how much they'd bonded and Shia turns up and spreads her legs instantly.

I only listed the ones that I personally read.

The DD manhua gave me cancer so I don't evern plan to pick up any of his works.

>>139710219
>Which ones have the best lolis?
Lolis aren't very prolific in chinknovels, and when they do use the term loli, it usually just refers to a small teenage (14-16) yo girl.
The chinks seem to think that only when women are like 22-28 do they truly become beautiful. Why do they think this? Beats me.

Most of the stuff I listed has girls in the 14-17 yo age though
>>
>>139710236
>Konjiki no Wordmaster is worth checking.
Not much better than arifureta imo.

Less harem-esque, but more shitty typical shounen-y progressions. I think the TL for this is halted as well, no?

It's complete but the author is telling epilogue chapters like there was 5 years later story that was about Myuu meeting friends she had made over the internet.

There is some fun stuff in the epilogues like Endo's story about his relationship with one of the rabbit girls from Shia's tribe and overcoming an impossible task to be with her. He had to conquer one of the dungeons alone and fight Hajime and land a clean good blow against him.
>>
>>139711791
>>139712382
From the first arc I thought it'd be more of him eating all the demons he kills to power up and adventuring in dungeons, while being an edgy fuck to everyone but his vampire loli.
>>
>>139712441
ATG falls off after the dragon trial arc and turns to shit - which really disappoints me since it used to be my favorite.
TDG is tremendously mediocre.
>>
>>139709261
I'm reading The Experimental Log of the Crazy Lich, been great so far.
>>
>>139712382
Because they don't actually read the story, they just read what other people said about it and joined in the complaining. Just like all the people that thought it was a revenge story when Hajime never made any comments about wanting revenge.
>>
>>139711213
>cute and sexy vampire loli getting fucked every night

is this actually worth reading?
>>
>>139712591
He fucks the vampire loli behind the scenes, it's only implicitly mentioned most of the times it's mentioned.
>>
>>139710379
Yes but there's no new chapters so the translator has nothing to do.

>>139710341
Shia's development might have looked instant but it really lasted something like 60 or 70 chapters. She changed a lot from when she joined compared to how she was around the capital city arc. Tio got better too as she got more development like in the ice dungeon.

That obvious doesn't happen in night literally. But, yeah but only for the vampire loli. The series have some merits like MC winning the best girl whom he waifu with enthusiasm, though there's still a harem and stuff. The concept is interesting too, but the execution gets pretty bad later on, like fanfic tier kind.
>>
>>139711213
>>139712591
>>139712667
Vampire loli ends up aged to looking 17 compared to her original 12-13 self during the final battle. Of course that's not really a big deal since even before final battle they got transformation magic and could change how they look but I believe it mentioned that she ended up sticking with the older looking body for the most part to look Hajime's age.
>>
>>139712791
Hopefully she reverts when it's bedtime.

Does he ever fuck Shia or Tio or Kaori or anyone else other than bat slut
>>
>>139712791
That better be bullshit or else dropped.
>>
>>139712745
Doesn't he end up fucking his entire harem by the end? After he spent pretty much all of the translated chapters talking about how he only loved Yue, if it's true it's a huge turn off.
>>
>>139712791
How disappointing.
>>
>>139712835
Some crazy shit happens before the final battle and Hajime decides to go full demon lord and he accepts the other girls that like him because of what happened there.

In the epilogue of the story he introduced his parents to his 8 wives. Yue, Shia, Tio, Kaori, Remia, Shizuku, Liliana, and Aiko.
>>
>>139712791
DROPPED.
>>
>>139712889
There was a decent reason for him accepting the rest of them. Shia got accepted beforehand though, he accepted her before the tree dungeon and they had sex after the tree dungeon.
>>
The first arc was pretty enjoyable but given how he got out of Orcus Dungeon OP as fuck I lost interest. Also that horrible FMP fumoffu rugby team reference. Holy hell.
>>
>>139713025
It was a sergeant hartman reference just like FMP was.

As in the very first princess? The one from the kingdom that summoned him?
>>
>>139712961

That's not even trying any more, I guess it couldn't have been saved from haremshit ever since Shia appeared.

>>139713011
Go on, what's the reason?
>>
>>139705547
Did the author even have the MC meet his class again yet.

I stopped reading at the bunny girl arc because it was so far removed from everything else I had read.
>>
>>139713073
Oh boy, thanks for making me remember that. Gonna watch that shit again right now.
>>
>>139713191
Japtem wasn't translating it, just hosting it. Anyway lead up to final battle started chapter 154 and end of story / epilogue was 179. Since then there's been various epilogue chapters about various characters and what happened to them after the story and returning to Japan and stuff.

For example the hero idiot decided to stay in fantasy world to atone for being an idiot and ended up disappearing by being summoned to a different world.
>>
>>139713354
>lead up to final battle started chapter 154 and end of story / epilogue was 179

>>139713011
>Aged up Yue
>Have MC fuck and wife the others girls despite thinking Yue is one and only for most of the story

>>
>>139713205
The God guy possessed Yue and took her body as its vessel. Then using Yue's body it trashed Hajime every which way using her spells just powered up to 11. Then it broke all his artifacts and left. Hajime ended up snapping pretty hard off the deep end and it was the combined effort of all the girls and Myuu that brought him back.

At that point he basically just didn't feel like keeping denying their feelings for him anymore. Yue was still the uncontested number 1 though.
>>
>>139713402
Not really? Last I looked translations were around 130 and had been stuck there for like 3 months and there's been like months between each release. Some RtD translator was looking at picking it up so maybe the story will finally get finished up.
>>
>>139705547
Volume 1 was good. The rest? Shit.
>>
>>139713658
Just 50 chapters. That's pretty close.
>>
>>139713566
This. I feel like I've been cucked, but I don't think that's the right term here.
>>
>>139713720
It's "close" but when you look at the non existent translation speed it's not close at all.
>>
>>139713686
You mean the Abyss chapters in Volume 1 were good. Everything before that was quite shit as well.

True, but that applies to any Yue centric volumes, really.

Bad story. Pretty much an asspull how the Vampire Loli was introduced.

Some fodder were able to go down all the way to Dungeon Level 80 just to lock up a vampire loli yet the author never explained how the fuck did they modify someone else's dungeon that repairs itself after a while so some fodder modifying a dungeon to lock a loli up would eventually have the dungeon revert back to its original state and don't give me any bullshit how any fodder from Yue's time period had magic power capable of surpassing one of the World Heroes.

Author just wanted to force his shit loli vampire taste on the readers which he never stopped doing for the rest of the story.
>>
>>139713571
>The God guy possessed Yue and took her body as its vessel.

All the characters are cheap ripoffs of characters from Mondaiji

Bad writing criticism is fair, but don't you dare talk shit about Yue, filthy pleb. She is literally perfection.
>>
>>139714011
He tried catering to all tastes too by having him fuck the rest of the harem.
>>
>>139714043
It's a pretty shitty trope true. Hajime was also a target though.

>>139714885

>>
>>139715165
The volume 1 added side story is all about the month they spent living in Oscar's home at the bottom of Orcus. Kind of a frequent joke it mentions how Hajime tried to "win" in the "battles" against Yue but kept losing.
>>
>>139715592
Yue should have stayed his only lover, she's too perfect.
>>
>>139714199
That was a fucking mistake, if he sticked to the vampire loli maybe he would've gained another reader
>>
>>139705547
Well shit, I remember reading this series forfuckingever ago.

The first dungeon has a fantastic narrative and direction, it was satisfying.
But then the OP as fuck MC just steamrolls and collects girls.
Sure equally OP opponents are added later so there's a reason for drama to still exist, but it just quickly loses its charm when MC has access to pocket dimensions batman would be proud of.

I think I would have preferred MC gang turning into the "villains" of the story instead of the classmates reconciling.

No use denying it. The author blew it by going harem route out of nowhere after having cleared Yue route for OTP.

All the dungeons are pretty good. The author did a good job making them all pretty functionally different.
>>
Guys this is important, Did he bang the teacher?
>>
>>139716701
out of nowhere

That's my issue. Hajime spends so much of the novel rejecting everyone repeatedly and saying Yue is special and will be his only lover no matter what.

The implied sex and her special status kept me reading even though more and more girls appeared and the story wasn't as good as Vol 1 and his Vol 1 character development started unwinding.

Learning that the author will suddenly go harem end made me lose all interest in the story.
>>
>>139717154
Yes. He's done stuff with all of them, though for Aiko he waited until he was no longer her student.
>>
>>139717172
His volume 1 character development started unwinding because in volume 1 the main character had cracked and gone insane. His development in the further arcs was all about him re obtaining parts of his old humanity and not being so dependent mentally on Yue. Of course that didn't fair too well since when he lost her he still broke pretty damn gigantically.
>>
>>139716753
Orcus and Miledi were good. The volcano and underwater ones didn't seem threatening any more and a lot of the tension was lost because the harem members kept making passes at him.

I tried to get into it but after the first arc (with roxy) the story got more and more boring and couldn't read through the adventurer arc.
it didn't help that the author's writing was particularly bad, even for a webnovel.

you might then like Gunota ga Mahou Sekai ni, it has a lot of similarities with mushoku tensei

I liked the later arcs a lot. Everything after the teleport labyrinth, especially the diary and stuff with Orsted was exciting.

>>139718776
Did his nip fans want NTR? He should have made a plan, the first dungeon was the best. It was the only one that seemed like it was designed to train challengers to get stronger with monsters getting tougher per level.

With the others (at least the ones I've read) you already had to be OP to survive.

What's good about it?
>>
>>139721057
So far it seems like it won't be pulling any bullshit like the MC suddenly inventing a printing press or some other shit.
It also focuses quite a lot on the hygiene standard from back then which the MC is slowly starting to fix in her household.
Books are too expensive to get for her. Damn, even a sheet of paper costs as much as her fathers whole monthly wage.
As I spoiled myself a bit with the manga raw, she's trying to make paper herself, but isn't really being successful.
Basically, it's cute and different.

Yea that was one of the aspects I really disliked about it. But how many series do you know that do the harem how MT does with wives, children, family. Basically a REAL harem and everything. I wish more authors grew balls and experimented like that, It was on one of the more unique takes on the genre I feel like. Despite what you said and I do agree with it, overall the execution was still much better than other harem series(talking only about japanese ones). Well I guess you could say it doesnt have much competition since there arent many real harem series like that. You know just your usual average highschool battle harems or arifureta tier cringefests, and then theres Re:Monster which is not even a story but terribly written diary.
>>
>>139732922
To be fair, MT had the advantage of being a story that spanned over 20 years. Most battle harems take place in highschool, where the idea of getting married and having kids isn't really valid. I did like what MT did though and agree that more authors should experiment

It's like asking why more romance series don't show the couple after highschool. The setting just doesn't allow it.

>>139733328
A lot of reincarnation stories have the flaw that they usually skip huge portions of the characters new life or that they fill the characters life with training for the sake of training. To be fair to Rudy he had a reason he was training at least, that's not always there in reincarnation stories.

Can't remember the name of it but I tried some reincarnation story and the story basically in like a few chapters went from death -> reincarnation -> back to being a teenager like they were before they died. All I could think of was why bother even making a reincarnation story.

Right, I do see your point now that you brought that up. I guess it does depend on the setting and type of story you wanted to write from the very begining too.

Probably bringing in "foreign" elements to the story could actually make it worse if you dont know what you're doing. I also think thats the reason there are so many copy pasted series.
>>
>>139733655
>the fact that all the girls want to fuck the MC is pretty damn annoying though
this
i felt like the main character having a harem wouldn't really fit the story with his personality and thought that the goddess or elmenhilde or maybe any type of older woman to be exact to be the only ones that should be romantically interested in him
i kind of dropped it when it went into those harem hijinks chapters

It's not really that different from most of the other reincarnation haremshit. It's just slightly better. The MC reminds people of the MC from Kaze no Stigma, so that probably helps its popularity a bit.

Did you even read Kaze no Stigma? Kazuma's whole backstory was he was a peerless edgelord just like Nagumo after they killed his girlfriend; he acted pretty much the same way until he made his contract with the wind lord, after which he mellowed out a bit, then finally regained some normality once his brother and Ayano came into the picture.

In fact I am pretty sure the author received messages about it, since the only reason I made the connection at all was because he said something about it in one of the little "author notes" in one of the WN chapters.

Arifureta delivers what i expect from it and really good for what it is.
No cockblocking, no retarded comedy, no crappy angst, no UST and violent readhead tsunderes and no pussy mc that must level up and defeat enemies with power of friendship and then lecture his enemies about living their life correctly instead of killing them etc. No other bullshit. Just adventures, sweet sol and lovemaking with blonde loli vampire.
>>
>>139735784
>senseless edginess
I enjoyed his edgy antics and his complex about looking like a chuuni. He seemed like an actual fourteen year old given way too much power for his own good to me. Lava submarine felt like a huge shark jump at first but then I remembered this was a guy who built a railgun in the first dungeon and shit didn't really tone down after that.
To me its basically ended up as was Tenchii would be if Ryoko was the MC and could pull Washu science-magic.
The whole Kouki/Kaori/Shizuku/Class et all sideplot felt like straight fanfic wish fulfillment for loner teenagers. I really tried to ignore it early on though, before it got too obvious, then I accepted it.

Yeah ATG is grinding my gears with the introduction of new girls since author removes a certain logical sense of his desires. He tries to make MC devoid of attachment but all MC thoughts dwell on over flowery description of beauty and he always performs the action to gain their favour.
It's obvious Chinese discrimination mentality since the author would never elaborate on it.
His adventure is great though, just his familial affairs are lack luster, and quite a few Chinese series fall into this trap.

Really he needs to lose another girl on his journey of strength to fix his attitude since any girl would eventually feel trapped in his harem.

It's cool when you acknowledge him as a cold blooded warlord, he lacks qualities of better written heroes out there.

>>
>>139705547
Basically, this is shit because it abandons its initial premise very quickly, which is the thing most people started reading it for.

That is to say, the mildly self-indulgent story of a guy who gets short-changed and abandoned in the Summoned To Another World With A Power stakes, then becomes an OP monster with gross-but-cool monster eating powers.

Instead, he becomes a beloved hero the instant he leaves the dungeon, the guy who killed him immediately becomes the slave of the actual villain rather than just being a Japanese-tier bully, the generic Good Guy stand-in hero turns out to be a possessive NTR moron (amazing), and random girls line up to slot themselves onto his dick with little to no development.

I rarely stop reading stories I've started, even when they become shit, but the moment I dropped Arifureta was when the MC tried playing the whole "Haha, I'll pretend to be a murderous bag of dicks so you can hate me instead of feeling sad", which made his loli teacher get super-wet for him because she immediately worked out the charade (via moon logic). It was trying to have its edgy cake and eat it to. You can be a hated villain who takes on the world's sins etc etc, /or/ you can be a beloved and compassionate hero who causes every female who meets him to soak their panties. Don't try to have your cake and eat it too, you just look retarded.

I appreciate that the guy didn't want revenge on his classmates (including the one who tried to murder him?), but why not make the vampire loli a cornerstone of the Demon King's barrier or whatever, so he becomes a monster fighting against the heroes to save her? Or something. Any kind of actual motivation.

My biggest concern with Arifureta is how utterly lazy the writing becomes. It's fine to decide MC can do literally everything, but the developments are handwaved and asspulled in a couple of lines and aren't really explored or justified, which breaks suspension of disbelief.

For example, one of the very first asspulls, the rail gun.

How did he start off designing it? What real revolver did he use as the model?

How did he decide on the optimum barrel length? Bullet shape and size? Quantity of gunpowder substitute? Rifling? Weight/power balance? Not told.

Were there any accidents or setbacks during the development and testing? We're not told.

Did he draw his design anywhere or was he relying entirely on memory to retain the whole design as it changed over time? We're not told!

The text heavily implies he never actually tested it against a monster, because the very next chapter the rabbit he kills is the first victim of the bullshit gun. How did he test his gun? How did he quantify the results so he could improve on previous revisions? We're not told.

How does he know that it's ten times stronger than an antimatter rifle? Has he ever fired an antimatter rifle?

In the span of one paragraph he just builds a gamebreaking gun with no justification.
>>
>>139738462
Then it worsens.


>By the way, I built this submarine earlier because we might have to go underwater someday.

>I've been working on it for quite a while, but you've never seen me work on it, I've never mentioned I was working on it, and the harem who is with me 24/7 never noticed I was working on it either.

>I've also never been near a large enough body of water to actually test it in, but I know it works perfectly.

>I never predicted we'd have to use it in magma, but I happened to make it tolerant of magma temperatures and magma pressures, instead of just watertight.

>None of this will ever be addressed. A single line is all that is needed to asspull this submarine into existence.
>>
>>139738462
>>139738570
Yep. Total bullshit.

I could forgive the sudden magitech being pulled out of his ass if the premise of the manga was that his craft-focused class was regarded as shit, but he ground it to ridiculous levels in the dungeon, picked up skill books from the dungeon makers, and combined it with modern-day scientific knowledge to become an OP fantasy Edison.

But
a) that's not the premise, he just... happens to be Tony Stark, somehow, on top of his monster-eating powers
b) if it were the premise, you'd expect enough focus being given to it that his creations were actually interesting and foreshadowed
c) if it were the premise, you'd expect the world to react to and mimic his creations rather than them just being an additional (unnecessary) excuse for him being broken.
>>
>>139738696
>>
>>139738402
>abandons its initial premise

I guess this was my problem with it too. The first dungeon set up the mood for the rest of the series, but the demon eating is hardly mentioned again and the tone shifts completely to standard harem building and everyone around him sucking his dick. It would have been nice if he'd fought against the heroes, yeah.

Similar gripe with the harem itself. The indication for much of the series was that they would never take the harem too far, and that Yue was his one and only and he only held special feelings for her. It even became a running gag. They fuck regularly and while the other girls get jealous they seem to accept he's in a committed relationship. Suddenly at the end he fucks and wifes another 7 girls, including multiple classmates somehow and even his loli teacher.

It was nice when it was done in GunOta. At least shows the author knows absolutely nothing about guns but that they are cool, and actually helps develop the character a bit (through his decision making processes, how long he decides to work, how he copes with setbacks and people's reactions to setbacks such as blowing away his hand). That said, I'm mostly basing it off his very initial gun-making process, since it kind of felt like later gun development skipped most of the above.

It's basically "cuz magic ores" or "cuz age of gods magic" for most of those.
That and the monster transformation gave him direct mana manipulation which conveniently half of his harem has by being special snowflakes and some gain through more age of gods bullshittery and robot angel nun bodies and such.
That isn't even as bad as the literal doraemon shit, orbital cannon, cross bits from gundam, giant robot super sentai team, etc he makes later.
Its dumb fun and anyone who thinks its anything but that will get upset. Like that time early on when he's in the demihuman village and goes full edge and threatens to just start shooting the place up if they want to kill the rabbits and permanently injures a bearman to prove his point.

At last finished Regios. At the end it was a shitty ride, but overall I enjoyed it. That was a good break from isekai/tensei stuff and returning to "old" novels felt nice. I cried like a bitch for the last boss (no, that fire mutt wasn't the one). As the best girl winning was spoilered to me long ago, it had less impact than it should have be for me, so I ended up to be more invested in the antagonist, I guess.

>>
>>139755738
harem isn't the problem, badly done harem is
When you just stack up the girls and contrive ways to have them fall in love with the MC then it gets a bit hard to read. Even then I think most /a/ posters would forgive you if the girls are fun like Shia is in OP's story.
Arifureta actually developed the girls but I don't think most people can stomach the students and the teachers character development because its so ridiculous. I was fine with it since I thought of it as a power fantasy wish fulfillment story from the start.
That and kouki being a punching bag.
>>
>>139755738
The idea of a harem itself sounds great, if you don't mind spreading your love, instead of focusing on just one.

I don't mind harem stories, but nearly all of them go about it in a stupid fashion.
Besides, most "battle harems" are just really complicated love triangles that aren't resolved.

Like >>139755935 said, there's no meaning in just throwing in random girls, without having a real plot.
>>
>>139755688
In case you're serious, the art is that of the boat slut.
>>
>>139754895
Ok, will try what i can.
>>
>>139756030
>focusing on just one

Which is what it essentially was until the final arc.
>>
>>139755935
>>139756030
Good harem will explore relationships between girls and their dynamics as well. I can't remember right now any.
>>
>>139756176
On the top of my head. Rokujouma perhaps?
>>
>>139756127
Even in the final arc Hajime was still entirely focused on Yue. He just decided he'd at least accept responsibility for all the other girls because he felt he owed them for bringing him back from the brink of insanity.

All the harem has had pretty cute moments in the after story chapters.
>>
>>139756030
>>139755935
I think another thing is that it is written at the start as 1 girl development per vol so you end up spending like 5 just to get the gist of the harem rather slow building them up through the course of few novels.
Nowadays all romance are love in first sight, plus harem is something MC have to achieve, playing his cards right not just handed to him in a silver platter.

finally we hardly get harem end so what is the fucking point
>>
>>139756369
Unfortunately. This is true. Not much interaction to create love.
>>
>>139756306
How dare you gloss over Shia's glorious victory after the Forest Temple.
>>139757370
More like even when they do its because the girl is an antagonist or hostile. Usually once they are on the same side its done, like Rin in Fate/Stay Night where it was basically her hating him for existing then being all over him.
>>
>>139756369
>we hardly get harem end
I'm actually curious about this. Is there anything translated or untranslated besides MT that has a real harem end anyway?
And by a real harem end I mean with a family and all like >>139732922 mentioned and not your usual 100000 times overused anime type harem end.
>>
>>139758191
Shia's victory was great but my point was that even though Hajime "accepted" the other girls, his thoughts were still entirely Yue centered. I'm still waiting for a Lily afterstory chapter to explain how her relationship with Hajime is.
>>
>>139758378
Arifureta, the one in the OP. It's why people have dropped it.

Thats about all I can list. Its strange, I've seen so many harems but so few that actually end with a coherent group forming around the MC with relationships between the girls. MC's usually just stack them up and knock them down.

>>139758771
Oh so he eventually touches the other harem memebers(What took it so long).
>>
>>139758683
>It's why people have dropped it
I dropped it because it became absolutely ridiculous.
Lava submarines... really?

The harem doesn't bother me, but I can see why people would be annoyed by it, considering how insistent Hajime was about only loving Yue.

Anyways, there are a lot of harem web novels, that actually have a harem (MC in an actual relationship with the girls, probably even boning), though I don't know how many get as far as to have a family. A lot of them just happen to be mindless power fantasies, and I guess something like responsibility would be counter-productive.
>>
>>139750928
How desperate you autists to insult it?
>>
>>139758683
I didn't drop it because of the harem though. I was actually fine with it but jesus christ the way they were treated later on and their conversations in general felt so cringe.

I coudn't care less about the classmates too. This Kouki fellow and his character was just plain hilarious. I'm actually surprised it got a family end but knowing the author he probably ended with something like this didn't he?

>and hajime had 9999 kids with his harem-which by the way I shoved down the readers throat as hard as I could.
>The end.
>>
>>139758900
Yue basically seduced the fuck out of him. She learned whore magic when she was a princess in training.
>>139758983
>became absolutely ridiculous
because everything before that wasn't?
Lava submarine was just too out of left field for anyone. Even I believe the author wrote himself into a corner and just went fuck it.
>something like responsibility would be counter-productive.
death march handles this part really well. MC is basically japanese superman. Also I love it when you have a already OP MC get even stronger when the enemies don't.
>>
>>139758983
>considering how insistent Hajime was about only loving Yue

I thought about why I didn't mind other harems (even real ones like in MT) and realized that this was the difference. Hajime x Yue was pushed as the OTP for the entire story, I didn't sign up for him to fuck and marry them all.

Though by the time Kaori entered the harem (and got some asspull power-up so she could fight on their level) the constant harem bants were already getting pretty grating.
>>
>>139759486
>because everything before that wasn't?
It all was. I just lost my patience with it all by that point, and decided I didn't care anymore.

The Lava submarine popping out of nowhere with not prior explanation just happened to be the trigger.
>>
Well talking about harem and Arifureta, don't expect it to be less haremy in the LNs because the LN has already promoted one classmate to sub-heroine level with hints that she might get more development later too.
>>
>>139752888
Its just author made a mistake at the beginning by attracting literal cucks who thought it was a story about pussy mc struggling with goblins drama like Hai Grimgar. Now they are mad and shitting in every thread.

Far more people prefer weak male MC so that girls can shine more and MC actually has to struggle and use his brain.

It's good until the arc after the elf joins the party/harem. After that it goes to total shit because every arc is Stuff happens, a newly introduced girl is helped / saved, falls for one of the other guys despite Sirius doing most of the work, repeat for next arc.

Author has posted that it's because Sirius is too amazing so the girls fall in love with the more normal guys instead of him.
>>
>>139774558
Wow, sounds like shit.
Why does this happen
>>
>>139775215
Because the author feels like there has to be some kind of new romance in every arc and since he doesn't want to add more girls to Sirius, he just tosses them to the other guys.

It's really too bad too because the first 100 or so chapters of the story were quite good.

It's one of those otome game villain reincarnation stories but she only remembered her past life after she had hit the bad end. She managed to convince her father to not send her off to be confined in a church and instead ended up being the feudal lord rep in charge of the family territory.

Basically it's a kingdom management/reform story. Also there's no harem for Iris despite the fact that she has a number of male servants so no worries there.

See the drama on NU and places? Some guy was trying to pass his english original story off as a chinese story translation and taking big donations for every chapter. He got caught and when asked to show the raws posted an obvious english mtl'd into chinese image.
>>
>>139744879
You gonna have to fight me first.
>>
>>139783345
I don't understand how he got that going. Wasn't there a link to the raws or at least something from an official book store for people to look over?

Anyone have a link to Ch59 of Return of the Former Hero?
>>
>>139784479
Apparently he had been making up shit like he was given the story directly and the author never posted it online, etc etc. He said he would send a copy of the raws if people really wanted though but this one guy tried messaging him and just getting ignored so he finally made a big deal about it and instant drama. Author tried to post the obvious english -> chinese MTL "raw" and got called out for how obvious it was by chinese translators who said the phrasing and terms used was nothing like how a chinese writer would write and it had english sentence structure.

For Return of the Former Hero, all the chapters are on negaraizu's site since RtD has been so shit lately.

What novel are you talking about by the way?

>>139784997
Empyrean Overlord. I never picked it up since I don't read chinese(hah) stories but the drama has been amusing me.
>>
>>139784893
>The links work
What the fuck. Tried all day yesterday and today and kept getting the usual error out.

>Author contacted him directly
Does he have some sort of E-Fame for that to even happen? Everything about it seems real fishy.
>>
>>139785109
No he was just some random new "translator" that was posting chapters for $10 donations at the start but then ramped up to $50 per chapter pretty fast once the story got noticed because of the frequent updates.
>>
>>139785184
It's kind of interesting, the amount of money people will spend for translated chapters. I do wonder if they'll continue making money with this now that the cat's out of the bag.

Dude's going to assimilate every CN translated novel at some point.
>>
>>139784893
So he plagiarized and claimed it as his own.
>>
>>139787207
Didn't he write fan fiction of his own?
>>
>>139787462
So it was all just a fan fiction that was a translation knock off that was to get some attention on novel updates to get more chapters?
>>
>>139787658
Are we still taking about Empyrean Overlord?

Long story short, it appears that it's a OEL story, and not a translated one, but advertised it as such to place it on popular websites.

Supposedly, the translator forged evidence to "prove" its CN origins, and was found out, leading to lots of drama.

It will not.
>>
>>139789119
Sweet Christmas just how naive are you.

People paying for MTL sets the bar low for others and cripples anyone that actually would put effort into it because their hard work is seen as lesser even if better.

If anything it would promote more people doing MTL since the barrier for free money is so low.
>>
>>139789298
Especially because there are fucktons of untranslated web novels out there.
Any retard could go out to find one and just MTL with a bare minimum of editing.

The fucking point is that we won't have to pay for the MTL translation ourselves though, just wait for someone to pirate it for us (like horriblesub/horriblescan). There are many dumbasses out there still willing to donate money to shitty novels (like Mushoku Tensei or tate yuusha), I'm sure they will be eager to pay money for MTL stuff.

Outside of the shitty art(which is growing on me) I really like this series.
>>
>>139789752
You completely missed his point, which is that putting a paywall up for MTL is bad because it incentivizes more shitty MTL.
>>
>>139789877
Its not too bad, but I think sevens and the elf cheat one handled multiple inner personalities better.

Personally I do MTL myself though. Those retards only translate pandering/self-insert shit (or YY like the chinks say)

This, and it's already happening. Of course the same retards donate this new "translator" for all his "hard" work and cycle just goes on.

I mean just look around there are shit tons of these guys and well most of them don't even hide anymore that they MTL(remember the Konjiki drama? KeK)

>MTL
The vain of my existence. In a way, I actually don't mind the ones thate are upfront about it. Them I can avoid and/or read to judge.
But the ones that don't say anything, yet you can straight up tell it's MTL, and they have the gall to put up some donate button when half their shit is wrong. That kills the community. Well, the community is already dying with all the MTLs in general.
>>
>>139792996
>unedited MTLs
>"translators" corner clearly shows an extremely poor grasp of English

That said, would you read a MTL that was edited to make sense in English, but not necessarily an actual translation?
>>
>>139793214
Depends on what you mean by an actual translation. I can understand Sacrificing literal-ness for readability. But the only way I'd accept a MTL is they spend 90% of their time scrutinizing over every little word. Because that's exactly what they should be doing when they don't know the language. And even then it's only for a series I considered low priority on the reading list.

But hell, most MTLs don't even go that far. These guys will translate a っ as "tsu"(Hurts that even newbie translators fall for that too.) and not even proofread their stuff into proper English. So it reads like shit.
>>
>>139793822
There are also faggots who leave a line in japanese and put something like "lol i dont know". Either make somthing up or skip a line outright, don't be halfassed to such degree, holy shit.

>There are also faggots who leave a line in japanese and put something like "lol i dont know". Either make somthing up or skip a line outright, don't be halfassed to such degree, holy shit.
No, never make something up. I don't mind when they say they don't know the line. but they should clearly ask for help. Especially if they are trying to improve their Japanese. If I stumble across that, I will usually throw them a bone and best explain what the line means so they can improve.

Incredibly disappointed the author was forced to censor his own story because breastfeeding is not okay in text form according to the web novel site when Seikon no Qwaser exists both in manga and anime form.

But it looks like the Light Novel kept the breastfeeding while the web novel site said breastfeeding was not okay.
>>
>>139794292
Did you remember slime drama? One of the translators liked to make up stuff and add lines literally turning the story in a fanfiction.
>>
>>139785711
$80 was the bare minimum.
>Raised so far: 1721 $ (2151%)
>>
>>139794381
I kinda stopped reading that because of that drama. Didn't help that it happened at the start of a new arc too I'll probably pick it back up again, but read the raw.
>>
>>139794381
It was an editor who did that, cutting out lines he didn't think were necessary, or creating an entire conflict between races that didn't exist in the original.
>>
>>139794427
Er Gen's work is bitch to translate and DB did well translating those chinkz code. Also DB quit his main job for full time translation thus many people donate.

So what are the best obscure LN/WNs?

The one with the tsundere dragon, it was during the start of tournament arc i think.
>>
>>139794724
I dropped in the beginning of that arc, what the fuck did they really pull that shit?Did they fix the chapters? Otherwise I won't even bother catching up.
>>
>>139794579
Reincarnator
Raw is behind a paywall though
>>
>>139794861
Main translator said he would fix things but i dropped it and just went ahead with raw so i dont know what happened in the end.
>>
>>139794861
After a community backlash, the project reorganized itself, and they got rid of that editor.
I'm pretty sure they went back and redid those chapters, but I haven't really checked back, seeing as I dropped it soon after.

Could go the archaic route, and just take screenshots of every page, and zip it. Can't make an epub like that, but you can OCR the contents, or read it as-is. Maybe use a script to auto-crop the pages?

>>139795420

I don't even know anymore

It was a maybe good, but weird and unsatisfying read. Everything near the end was fucked up. Also token characters that does jack shit.
>>
>>139798514
Yeah, but we got what we got.
>>
>>139798540
I think the end of part 2 was what made it feel really unsatisfying, the one in part 1 was pretty good. Medea was so weird that she ended up being the most enjoyable character for me.
>>
>>139798514
The fanart is actually really, really good and is my head cannon.

Lorna's devotion is insane though.
>>
>>139798887
Medusa's whole life drama stemmed from the fact that she was jealous of a pillow, it was hilarious.
>>
>>139798887
Pride dude, Greed kun, Medea and Zebul were great characters. Probably the maids and Sloth too.

Literally no one else matters, the Demon king and her little understudy might as well not be there.
>>
>>139798966
Lorna was best girl for burning alive at Leigie's side without giving a fuck, but Medea was definitely best Pillow/Daughteru/Rapist.
>>
>>139799168
Wrath-kun didn't exactly get a lot of screen-time, same for fallen angel-san and Hero-san.
>>
>>139799237
Which is why it felt like shit to read. The author was rushing way too hard there.
>>
>>139799168
Hiero trolling fallen angel-chan was the funniest shit in part 2, I didn't even gave a fuck about her before that.
>>
>>139788546
Too much suffering.
>>
>>139799372
I don't even remember it in detail, it just all went by so fucking fast.
Granted, I may have been reading it at 3 in the morning.
>>
>>139797754
I just realised, the only piece of armor Greed-kun is wearing is a crotch piece.
This man has got his shit together.
>>
>>139799613
If I remember it properly she avoided getting killed, got to annoy the shit out of fallen angel-chan, made her give a good chunk of her powers, turning Hiero into low tier demon lord while also making fallen angel-chan look like a complete retard. It was some god tier trolling.
