What LN's have you been reading?
>>
I've been trying to read the Index LNs and see what the anime cut, I just find it a chore to get into it.
>>
Been reading されど罪人は竜と踊る, on the second volume.
Also recently purchased what is released of ファイヤーガール, I'll probably give a try tomorrow.
Also your list suck
>>
>no Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere

Faggot.
>>
>LNs

Im not a shit eater
>>
Even the top tier list for LN are shit,my god
>>
Im my own little sister!

Light novels are the cancer killing anime AND this board.

That image is not accurate right....right?

I realy like "I'm a successful light novel author at a boy's high school, but I'm being strangled by a female classmate who's a voice actress and is younger than me"
>>
Good ones.

I have also been indulging in oxymorons.

LN threads/discussion belongs on >>>/jp/
>>
>>100483457
Light novels never get talked about here unless they get an anime.

Them being easy to create allows for all kinds of experimentation, and there's a lot of room for studios doing adaptions to add their own personal touch.
>>
>>100483692
that's not true though
>>
Let's check that list...
>harem
>harem

LNs aren't narrative styles. They are containment methods.
>>
>>100483692
This isn't true. Many very good totally not shit LNs like ZnT, SAO, and Index were praised here before they got an anime.
>>
>>100483624
>troll list
>implying those arent the best
>not knowing about the thousands of imouto shit LNs
>>
>>100483577
That's just a regular novel though
>>
>>100483692
>Them being easy to create allows for all kinds of experimentation

No, it allows for them to be the same reused tropes over and over again that pander to the niche audience that buys them and makes it easy to try to ride off the successful ones by quickly shitting out uninspired garbage
>>
>>100483692
And yet, all they do is harems.
>>
>>100483831
Of course I know about those, and I know that a lot on that list are garbage too.

I'm forcing myself through the awful translation of Horizon 1-A and am keeping myself up to speed on Owari no Chronicle.

>falling for a troll chart
>>
>>100483763
Well, Kagerou Days is something like the second best selling light novel after Sword Art Online, and it's not harem.
>>
I just caught up with LH and will try Vanadis next, I read the manga adaptation and enjoyed it.
>>
>No adaptation of Zaregoto ever.
On the upside, /a/ wouldn't shitpost about it too much, and it's fanbase won't get shitty.
>>
>>100483924
Yeah, this is probably the only LN that I'll ever enjoy.

On another note, Allison volume 1 is finally done:

That LN is the definition of edgy. It was all good until the Kings game arc

>>100485313
>implying total lack of words is a benefit

That said LNs are garbage.
>>
Waiting for someone to translated vol 7 of Daidenyuden
>>
>>100485362
>implying total lack of words is a benefit
I wasn't though. LN is all the cons of anime and none of the benefits.
>>
>>100485250
>Haruhi
>Index
It's cute how you think your shit tastes are better than their shit tastes.
>>
>>100485362
They are fun if you want to waste some time. I read them when im at work
>>
>>100483122
>still starting threads with that troll chart
This is (one of a number of reasons) why we can't have LN discussion.

That's a good thing.

>>100485546
I hope not, the LN translation scene is far worse than even the manga or eroge scene, full of people who know neither japanese nor english yet still "translate" shit

>>100483924
I thought the final volume was supposed to be released last year. What happened?
