LNs that get circle jerked by ESLfags here are invariably shit. Sometimes the anime can make it tolerable with nice art and voice acting. Everyone is sick of hearing "Well they butchered the adaptation by not adapting my animesuki spoilers 1:1, but trust me volume 8 will be awesome and this series is totally different."

I'm not trying to make this an anime vs LN thread. I'm simply asking why LNs as a medium are so hated. What do people base their hate on?

Jordan Robinson

Anime are usually an improvement on LNs.

A lot of LN writers are upstart youngsters who got their young awards work turned into a series, and that rough gem is refined into something actually worth watching by a studio made of professionals.
The entry level for LNs is much lower than manga.
Also, while a manga needs to be a moderate ongoing success and have various appraised tankbons before being considered for an anime adaption, all a LN needs to be picked up is a couple volumes that did well in sales.

Take also into account that roughly half of a LN is made of scenery descriptions and inconsequential internal monologuing, so an anime is giving you only the good parts.

William Collins
William Collins

Because these popular light novels are seemingly all bottom rung young adult fiction and it's propped up as something better and praised

People go crazy here for some cute girls, especially with a quirk or gimmick that takes off, and fluff so anime adaptions will get an easier ride. Most of these will be forgotten before they get scrutinized too hard anyway and the next season begins.

Also
This is how books work m8
Yeah, but a book will give you at least some modicum of entertainment, they're pleasurable to read if they're well written.

A LN's scenery description usually goes something like:
"The courtyard was empty. I could see two trees in front of me. It was sunny outside. What a nice day."

And this is the level of writing through the whole thing. Short bursts of incredibly short phrases, lapalissian statements ahoy, unnecessary internal monologue that always boils down to phrases that amount to "Well, the thing I just described happening sure is happening, uh".

It's like reading the fluff on an essay, like when you know you have to write 5 pages but you have nothing to fill them with, so you repeat yourself and use longer phrases to pad a single phrase of content into an entire page.

They're incredibly easy to read compared to a book, both in sentence structure and level of kanji used. They're written specifically to be targeted at middle and high schoolers looking for a simple and unchallenging read.

There is some incredibly rare instances of stand-alones, but I can't name a single one that has been made into an anime.

Not in normal speech.
Not to mention, they're usually used at the start with a full explaination of what they mean, and they're all middle-school level kanji, just used in an unusual way.
Also, sentence structure remains at the characteristic LN-like simplicity.

The typical LN target audience may find that too difficult.
Remember that in Japan a 'difficult' book doesn't just mean big words, it may mean literally being unable to read it.

Christopher Jackson

No one said that.
It's just that an anime is typically less painful to sit through because the worst parts of a LN (scenery descriptions and internal monologue) are cut out of the anime, so it's a net improvement on the product.

It's never a masterpiece, but at least it can go from being a 3/10 to a 6/10.

You can easily search for kanji, but at a glance you wouldn't be able to know 100% for sure the reading or meaning.

Could you give examples of some difficult books?
Anything by Murakami
Phrases longer than an oration by Plato, esoteric kanji usage, and constant switching between internal and external narration
It's well written, but a nightmare for a non-native speaker

Like 70% of LNs targeted at girls follow a "Good girl falls in love with a bad boy and tries to mend him of his delinquent ways" plot.
The remaining 30% is reverse harems and yuri, which as a genre in its entirety is marketed only to girls.

I wonder if that bad boy thing also have rape like shoujo slut.
They almost always have it, it's a staple of the genre
It's always 'pseudo-rape' though. Like, the girl will be getting on the boy's nerves, so he slams his hand on the wall she's standing against, holding her there, says a few choice words, then kisses her

And then an entire arc spanning like two volumes starts, all about the resulting internal drama "oh no he kiss-raped me even though I hate him! But DO I hate him???"

Like you'd know if you were actually trying to inform people in a thread made for discussing LNs, instead of trying to win a dick-swinging competition about whose Japanese is better, books are written and targeted towards a certain age, and will contain kanji appropriate for the grade the expected reader is in.

So while your average LN will only contain kanji a highschooler would know, an adult-oriented book will have a wider variety of them, and less common vocabulary used.

The "You should know them anyway" argument only works for foreign learners. A native Japanese person won't be able to read a 'normal' book as a young teen, even if it's "babby-tier" as you call it.

Besides, bake is hard to read only because Nisio hates punctuation and writes phrases that span an entire page.

The "Character depth" that gets taken out is compromised entirely of self-referential statements that repeat what the narration already told you.
Plus, the unsufferable middle-school-tier writing doesn't help either.

Please give some examples of this because I haven't encountered it at all.
What does giving you examples mean?
You can open any LN and see that the kanji used are just the partial jouyou kanji, plus the chuu and kougaku lists.

They're marketed to young people, but they're still normal books. The translation was made simpler to match the age target, as far as I know.

LNs are a format (serialized books of novella length) more than a hard genre, and the term has only really been in common use since the late 80s. Arguing about the exact definition is a great way to start a flame war on 2ch.
The last ten years has seen a rash of carbon-copy YA trash that's just angling for an an anime adaptation, so many people associate all LNs with that.
