Is there a bigger cancer is the anime/manga industry right now than light novel adaptations?

I apologize for insulting your self-insert garbage. It's ironic how the same people that call SAO bad watch Overlord, Grimgar and such and say they're good.

They must be autistis, that's why they can relate to the autistic characters of Grimgar and like them.

what a shit thread

It got praise because "it's different" and the MC and his party aren't godlike but regular people. Still a shitty self-insert because it's even easier to identify with weak characters if you yourself are weak.

Light Novels have been adapted for 30+ years.

Learn to sage shit threads you dumb faggots.

I won't even bother with what you're trying to imply.

This is a shit thread.
>>

Mari Okada
Yaoi
Rape/abuse-pandering in shoujo
The twelve-episode format's prevalence
MangaBox
WSJ

LN adaptations mostly just replace harem manga adaptation with harem LN adaptations, they're not really a problem.
>>
>>140292428
The term light novel adaptation these days is synonymous with "teleported to a strange new world where MC is the strongest for some bullshit reason and has no personality whatsoever".
>>
>>140292648
People should stop using it to mean that, then, because it's wrong.
>>
>>140292648

>The term light novel adaptation these days is synonymous with
Your opinion is not 'everyone's'. Just like anything, there's a few good examples among a field of shit. You're just focusing on the few shit ones you know.
>>
>>140292648
Or John Carter clones
>>
>>140292754
Am I thinking of the wrong thing, or isn't John Carter about Martians with airships? That doesn't seem like a lot of LN adaptations to me.
>>
>>140291155
Yes, idolshit is the biggest cancer right now.
>>
>>140291155
No but it makes big and easy money so it's here to stay. Your only hope is to drop animu, get out of the basement, get a job, start to lift find yourself a gf who's not into animu.
>>
>>140292737
Maybe not as many anime as there are manga series, but soon enough even those will get adapted into anime form and there will be even more of them each year.
>>
>>140292648
even then it's because they're cheap to make and they make a ton of money for how much it costs to animate and buy the rights to it
even if they don't sell a lot, they're pretty low risk because they'll at least get some audience
>>
>>140292853
There have been a grand total of like four idol franchises in the last decade.
>>
>>140292812
John Carter is issekai. Goes to another world, is the strongest, and gets hime-sama.
>>
>>140292886
>as there are manga series
No one fucking cares about LN manga, the industry's so huge that they don't make a difference at all, and none of them without anime are sales-relevant, either.

Whoever uses the term that way is legitimately retarded and deserves whatever they are complaining about.

The cliches you and OP are complaining about did not start with Japanese light novels. There are also countless numbers of manga which do the same thing.

I don't think LN adaptations are the cancer, the real problem is when 50% of the shows per season are just four hour long ads that have no intention of delivering a complete story.
>>
>>140293394
Yeah a lot of them intentionally have no real ending whatsoever to speak of and even more so increasing the sales of the LN.
>>
>>140293065
No, SJW have basically nothing to do with anything. WSJ on the other hand is absolute shit and draws fairly talented artists into years of shitty power levels and DBZ-with-sports.
>>
>>140292853
>Yes, idolshit is the biggest cancer right now.
I can't believe i'm agreeing with a tripfag cancer. but i am.
>>
>>140291155
Battle manga adaptions.
>>
>>140293565
Explain how idols are ruining anything
>>
>>140291760
I just thought it was a nice change of pace,it could've been more realistic but for an LN I liked how it handled the battles and characters,they all seemed like actual kids thrown in an rpg world.
>>
>>140292648
there's that and then these two
>MC is stuck in harme hijinks but the girl he wins is obviously the girl who he meets first or the one who is put in promo art with the MC most often
>MC must go to a battle school for reason x,y,or z he is the weakest and has no powers except for the super secret power he actually has that's stronger than any known power
>>
>>140293315
Well the "Isekai" thing is an old and trusted surefire way to make the reader emphasize with the protagonist and makes it easier to introduce a new world because you can just have the protagonist point out what's different from our world instead of skillfully weaving your worldbuilding into the narrative.
It's been done in the west since ages for SF/Fantasy works, especially when the demographic is children and young adults.

No wonder it's so popular in Japan with a large socially repressed target demographic that's prone to escapism, really.

>MC is stuck in harme hijinks but the girl he wins is obviously the girl who he meets first or the one who is put in promo art with the MC most often
That's not really an LN thing, that's been around since "LN anime" meant Dirty Pair.
>>
>>140291155
Yes:

moeshit
lolishit
yaoishit
fujobaitshit
idolshit
>>
>>140293795
Stuck in a video game world and reincarnated into a fantasy world are definitely the most popular ones I think.
>>
The biggest problem with the anime market is over saturation. One studio making 8-12 different 13 episode shows rather than focusing on 2-3 good 26+ episode shows. But unless the market becomes more profitable, it will remain this way.
>>
>>140291155
Light novel adaptations about a regular guy who gets trapped inside a RPG-like world when he happens to be awesome in some way and gets chicks.
>>
>>140291155
Reminder that this is a LN adaptation and it's pretty good, even if Kyon is a huge self-insert.

Kyon is really the only reason the series worked. I don't see why so many people hate first person narrative since it fixed the exact problem people have with bland MCs. Well, most of the time.
