It's actually about a future where kanji was phased out so imouto is one of the only people who can read old japanese texts.

It's because LN publishers are starved for original stories and turning to WNs for new content
Generally speaking, there is more variation now than 10 years ago. If you pay attention you'll notice that there are less stereotypical battle harems of the "boy meets girl"-type with one main girl and a bunch of orbiters, and more atypical ones that actually become harems. The quality of the literature has plummeted as a result though, because these "authors" are actually amateurs.

The last title you posted seems acceptable though and isn't as cringey as you'd think it is.
>>
>>152566310
A "boy meets girl"-type without a harem would be more original at this point, but are there many of those yet? Nearly every LN I see involves a harem.

Does Kagerou Daze count? It's not actually about the two characters in the beginning, so it might not count.

>29-year-old programmer Suzuki Ichirou finds himself transported into a fantasy RPG. Within the game, he's a 15-year-old named Satou. At first he thinks he's dreaming, but his experiences seem very real. Due to his use of a 3-time-use special power (meteor shower), he ends up wiping out an army of lizardmen and becoming very high level. He hides his level and plans to live peacefully and meet new people, though developments in the game story (like the return of a demon king) might get in his way.

Only lazy gaijin weebs and dumbass uneducated DQN would be happy about removal of kanji from Japanese.
It's like phasing out orthography from English and writing everything phonetically: niggers and rednecks would be happy about their retard kids getting slightly less shit grades in school but people who actually use the damn language to read things will be fucked.

>>152569581
Yeah it's ended. Author died before it did but he saw it coming so he left a mountain of notes behind and and requested in his will for another author to use them to finish the series.

What about manga that are written by light novel writers?
>>
>>152565241
the LN boom reminds me of the pulp magazine boom of the early 20th century when authors were paid by the word to crank out absolute garbage, but several high-tier sci-fi authors got their start that way, as did the creator of Conan the Barbarian before he decided to eat a bullet. But I am a historyfag and this is not my blog.

What's the point? Most of the LNs available in english have dodgy TLs. If you're going only with LNs with official releases (their TLs are at least better than a bunch of those CN --> EN tl), you get a real tiny list anyway.

Unless you can read moon and making a chart for other moon readers, there's not much point.
