Why was the adaptation done so badly?
>>
>>144397312
Shit director, all budget already went to Rakudai.
At least the soundtrack, OP and ED were good.

Full volume 12 translation fucking when.

Glad to see Krytyk pick up the translations again, and I'll gladly recant all my previous statements in other threads where I referred to him as a bitch.

In hindsight it was pretty immature to complain about someone who was doing it for free and out of their own free time stopping. It was just pretty depressing to see a series so close to its conclusion get the translation suddenly dropped. So I really appreciate him picking it up again.

12 episode industry killed anime.

I preferred if we had less shows each season but were longer. Not that before anime was better, but with longer series at least it had the redeeming point that you grew attached to the characters so at the end even if the show and characters were shit, you still would enjoy it anyway, cause you got attached to them.

Trigun for example was shit but eh, after 24 episodes you loved Vash

With 12 episode series that doesn't happen so we just have forgettable shows.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it has ruined the modern industry, but he has certainly harmed a great deal of series. I recall examples like Angel Beats where they wrote it thinking they were getting a 26 episode series, and then told nearly at the last minute they were only getting 13 (which was steadily becoming the standard at the time).

In terms of resources it makes sense, they can put more quality into each episode and with some series this can really work out for the better. However a lot of them just leads to shows that feel half-baked, characters or plot-lines feel underdeveloped, and there tends to be a lot of pacing issues that come along with it too. Series tend to start off slow, and suddenly kick it to high gear, potentially giving a feeling of whiplash to the audience.

So it's certainly one of the reasons why this series' adaptation was a failure. Though it also had a lot to do with Silver Link trying to do multiple shows that season, assigning a rookie director to the show, and basically treating the show as a failure from the start (which is a shame because the score, the cast, and the designs were great).

>>144397312
>Why was the adaptation done so badly?
People always defend LN adaptations with "well the anime butchered it, the novel is better" but that seems like a load of crap.

If you like a light novel anime adaptation then most likely you will like the source material too, but is there anyone here who has watched an anime and hated/disliked it, but then went on to read the novel and actually found it enjoyable?

I want to see some examples.

On a side note, I actually enjoyed the anime for NGNL more than the novels which I ended up dropping because the writing/translation was just awful.
>>
>>144419751

>>
>>144420966
>there anyone here who has watched an anime and hated/disliked it, but then went on to read the novel and actually found it enjoyable?
Me. I disliked Index's adaptation but loved the LN's. Same goes for DxD's third season. I can also say I didn't like DAL s2 but when I read the volumes that the anime covered I liked them. LN adaptations are usually shit because they're just a cheap ad for the source.

>>144420966
>If you like a light novel anime adaptation then most likely you will like the source material too, but is there anyone here who has watched an anime and hated/disliked it, but then went on to read the novel and actually found it enjoyable?
There was this series, for one.

Aside from this?

Uh, Black Bullet I suppose.

Danganronpa, though that wasn't a LN.

Railgun, though that wasn't an LN either.

With this series though people can point to specific aspects of the novels that were enjoyable to read which were badly adapted for the anime.

Yes. I'm one of the people that watched the first few episodes of Taimadou, found it shitty, but liked the lore, so I checked out the LN and found it great. That's literally what a lot of people are complaining about when talking about the anime adaptation. The LN is actually great, but Silver Link really dropped the fucking ball.
>>
>>144421162
>LN adaptations are usually shit because they're just a cheap ad for the source.
That's a fair point, but when you think about it: they pitch you the actual selling points of the series. Everything the novels add on top of that is just icing and sprinkles.

Also I'm curious:
Did you pick up the novels after watching the anime or before?
>>
>>144420966
Persona 4 although that was a game and not a LN.
Fate/stay night although that was a VN and not a LN.
LNs just generally suck but Antimagic Academy was at least fun to watch and had well described chuuni battles and SUFFERING backstory which was very poorly conveyed into animation.
For example in the second episode a fat King Arthur shoots a purple beam at Takeru which gets absorbed and used to cut fat King Arthur down.
Had they actually adapted what happened in the novel, fat King Arthur purges his armor to become superspeed King Arthur and has a bullet time superspeed duel with Takeru, then shoots the Knights of the Round Table at him who get cut down one by one in bullet time.
>>
>>144421268
The anime usually sells me on the premise, and that's what gets me to read them.

It depends on what. For DxD I picked up after the second season. Index I did it after watching both seasons. DAL also after the second season.

But ReZero was isekai story so it had potential to be big riding on the isekai boom. Antimagic was a mid-00s magic academy battle harem throwback so it only had the potential to fight over scraps with Rakudai and Asterisk.
>>
>>144422956
It was certainly more popular than AntiMagic's obscurity. Besides the point, it came out at the right moment just as the isekai fad had finally started gaining steam so obviously big investments all around.

If AntiMagic was written back in the late 00s when urban fantasy was at its peak because of shit like Index airing then yes it would have probably gotten better backing, better staff, and probably a better adaptation.

Now get over it.

Which doesn't tend to be a meme when the anime does a piss-poor job of conveying the tone and setting of the source material, let alone accurately adapting the characters and their motivations. You get bad anime adaptations-hell, not even just anime-bad adaptations all around, while the source material is actually great.

It has been a year or something already and I've forgotten most of the details from previous volumes. Gotta read all of it again to build up the hype meter for the final.

It's a real shame this series doesn't sell for some reasons. I'll buy it one day but as of now I lack the money and taking in books at this time is not a good idea, not to mention it's not easy to place an order from to my resident in the first place.
Anyone knows if author has a twitter?

Looking on the bright side though, I'm sure a lot of anime that normally wouldn't see the light of green were made thanks to the 13 episodes format.
Bad adaptions are going to be bad adaptions regardless of format. I'm sure there are inherently bad quality of this format but the same could be said about 24 episodes and in the end, it's up to the staffs to make best use of what they got. I guess if there's anything that really bother me is the fact that I'll never see any real ending to any series of adaptions as long as this 12 episode format is maintained.

Mother Goose did promise everyone will meet again in the new world, just without the memory of previous world, that one I remember for sure. To be honest at that point I thought it was a pretty good deal but at the same time, Takeru made a decent point. For me it's just rewriting the world and removing magic completely has a lot uncertainty and unforeseeable side effects to it and while everyone will get together again, it just doesn't sit right to throw out altogether the current life you have had until now.
I completely change my point now though. With Inquisition nearly wiped out, Tokyo is super dead, when the battle end the balance of power will be shifted to magic side which won't ended up well. I still sympathize with how Takeru feel but in hindsight, they really should have accepted Mother Goose deal.

Haunted fights Hayato, draws against him or something close to that and is killed by Kyouya.

Then, he reappears at the very end as a last boss and is killed again by Takeru (for good, I think).

So Kyouya got a chance to take him on after all. Nice. Also, Haunted himself said he was out of lives so I doubt he lived after being slain by Takeru.

What do you mean by great specifically?

Does it spare the reader of worthless forced exposition?

Is the prose in general competent, or is it either stilted or full of overly florid or repetitive passages that don't contribute anything meaningful?

Does it build the world through any semblance of "show, don't tell"?

Does it paint relatable multifaceted characters and support that by showing their interactions in combinations that aren't all "harem lead x harem girl"?

Do dramatic moments arise from humanly understandable conflicts between characters and their diverging personal values and goals, or is there an evil mastermind who's just evil because lol evil?

Are tragic moments emotionally justified, or are they the equivalent of the sudden appearance of the ever-looming Truck-kun, bane of Japanese school girls?

Most of the LNs that I've tried to read fail on at least three or four counts of these.

Sorry, I should probably have been a bit more clear there.

By that I meant things like instead of the narrator or protagonist explaining that "in this country, magic users are terribly oppressed" you would let the reader infer that as a more whole picture complete through smaller incidental moments like a magic user addressing a police officer with a fearful and overly subservient tone, or a mother desperately yelling at their child to not use magic in public.

The simple explanation doesn't build mood, doesn't work toward any kind of narrative priorities, and doesn't give any reason to care.

This is the kind of thing where a huge amount of literary work fails in its world building, with explanations and exposition TELLING about the world in a boring and matter-of-fact way like the most uninspired history books, instead of SHOWING what the world is like through the logical consequences.

You've convinced me to give this a try but the prologue chapter starting with exactly that kind of dry history recap doesn't exactly fill me with hope. Let's see if it gets better.

Right? I feel like too many LN artists don't really have a good sense on body language. But the illustrations in this series really do a great job of conveying things.

I'm not quite sure how to describe it but somehow just simple things like Mari holding onto her hat a certain way, or the way popcorn man is casually holding his weapon really does give off a dramatic or epic nature to it.

Also there's just a lot of effort put into the pictures in general. I find that a good number of series tend to put most of the work in only the colour illustrations, while the actual images in the novels are somewhat lacking.

The main story is over. There will another volume consisting of side stories, however (of which take place after the main story's conclusion).
>>
>>144453077
No, this is a good series that deserves more recognition in Japan and it's a shame that the anime completely ruined any chances of it picking up in sales.
>>
>>144453261
It's certainly at the highest tier of battle harems.
>>
>>144453261
It's surprising it got to 13 volumes considering lack of kissing, eroticism and other in-your-face fanservice you can find in everything else.
>>
>>144453261
Feels like an RPG with how much moving around they do.

>>144453551
Hohum, could be a urban JRPG like 7th Dragon 2020.
>>
>>144453425
I believe in the afterwards the author was even talking about how he was surprised the publisher even let him write this many volumes. I guess they just really liked the series itself despite it not really being the best seller.

Honestly I'm glad we managed to get this many, and actually (from what I can tell) get a decent conclusion. Can't say that for many series, but I'm still a tad sad at the lack of recognition.
>>
>>144453425
The author said writing romance isn't really his thing. Also, he mentioned that the series was originally suppose to end on the tenth volume, but work for the anime was longer than expected and was told to write more.
>>
>>144453769
At least we actually have a translation. That's one silver lining.

Then again, comparing one's dedicated weapon(partner) against an assortment of girls is unfair.

I also like how soft everything looked. Lapis was honestly made for this artstyle.

Totally, change the dragons into Magicians/Gods and you get Antimagic, moreso if you played the DS game that gave a whole lot more lore.

It would work well as everything, from an RTS to a MOBA.

She might be in color, but her tears are transparent.

You're getting old. That aside, it's slowly dying, unless some fresh discussions appear.

Unless more spoilers drop, guess not.
But I assume everyone is reading Volume 12 or rereading the series.

Yeah. Everything was so bright and light, and the lines were drawn so thin. It's pointless to complain about it, but it still bothers me, y'know?

I'll see you all when more chapters come out

Absolute bes- wait was she always that tall?
>>
>>144465812
Usage and Lapis are just really fucking short
>>
>>144465812
It makes her look way taller than she's suppose to be. For the record, Mari is 158cm, Usagi is 145cm and Lapis 135cm.
>>
>>144466350
>>144466500
She still look tall in that screenshot though, look at the WC sign.
Then again, this made me realize how good adult Mari is. Tall + flat = best.
>>
>>144466790
She's still short compared to the other three in the platoon

Does Kurogane lead the Inquisition?

Takeru's Stand is worried about him because he's a guy who don't knows your own limits.

>>144471639
Loli in picture is the human form of a legendary sword whose strongest ability has the potential to slay gods but to use it, its soul and its wielder's soul has to fuse into a single entity and she doesn't exactly want that but to continue using her abilities to face an ever growing list of tough enemies requires them to.
