I goal set to read one a month. It's alright, it takes about half a day to sit down and enjoy a 200-250~ pager.

It's fiction designed to be picked up and put down easily. For reading on the train or at lunch.

Reading Kino and waiting for Spice and Wolf -Spring Log to start getting translations.

Connor Kelly

Just finished Spice and Wolf. Well, need to read the short stories at the end of 17 still but, still finished.

Never did read Haruhi. Going to start while I wait for Index to keep releasing.

I've actually noticed this with LNs. I never seem to get around to reading them at home, but they're the first thing that comes out when I'm taking the bus somewhere.

I'm normally reading a chapter in bed before I go to sleep since I don't tend to want to sleep unless I get away from a computer.

At volume 13 of S&W now. Not sure what I want to read next. Prolly some info dump stuff like Mahouka.

This and Overlord are the only VN series I've read. What else is good?

Nathan Turner

VN? You meant LN, I'm assuming.

Depends on if you're looking for things that are physically translated or not.

Adam Ramirez

Actually just bought all the S&W book off amazon got started reading yesterday.

Hope they send you the 2nd release of that volume with the original cover art instead.

William Ross

Are you sure you got all of the LNs? I I had to get 10 from Barnes and Noble (and a few others just because I was on the site) because Amazon only seemed to have the manga volume 10.

Which is fine because I BOUGHT THAT FUCKING TOO.

Cameron Gray
Cameron Gray

Yeah typo, I meant LN. What's good AND translated?

Chase Fisher
Chase Fisher

Depends on what you like, I personally like Kamachi's novels since you can tell he just plain has fun with what he writes, Index dragged on for far too long though. One of these months I'm going to try to read the Kawakami novels but they're really chock-full of exposition.

Zachary Barnes
Zachary Barnes

I too wish to know this. Konosuba was fun

But it wasn't close to as good as Overlord and S&W. I gave DxD a shot for a few volumes and I couldn't handle the retarded MC.

Xavier Torres
Xavier Torres

With regards to official releases, Spice & Wolf and Haruhi are the obvious choices. If you can find them, the first five volumes of Full Metal Panic (4 & 5 were released as one book, I believe) and FLCL. Book Girl, Another, and The Good Witch of the West for flavor. SAO is an option if you enjoyed that, since a lot of the problems associated with it are because of poor adaptation. I haven't read it, but Reki seems to have a lot of his stuff coming over lately.

Grayson Bell

Does Kino even get translations anymore?

Kevin Cox

I don't know if it counts as an LN exactly, but I've been reading Vampire Hunter D the past few months (reading schedule can get really sporadic at times), really close to finishing it.

Also picked up Overlord at my book store this week. Surprised it was a hardcover, since most LN's are usually paperback.

Mason Perry
Mason Perry

First book was pretty good, second was good for the actual games, third was awful and boring. The movies were pretty lame from the start, however.

The English edition? Because it's the type of book I think would sell well as a hardcover, with its more serious nature. The only other hardcover I know is the English special edition of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Forgot to specify that the VHD is Journey to the Northern Sea 2.Read through the first part in no time since it was October when I read it. Really glad Dark Horse decided to release mutli-parters as omnibuses.

English edition yeah.

Most of the DxD fanbase like Ise a lot so it was probably the right decision to drop DxD.
But why not give it another try?~

Anthony Murphy
Anthony Murphy

Started this. I am pretty interested so far. Translations are pretty great and don't sound garbage.

Brody Ortiz

Those are dust jackets. I honestly wouldn't have minded if they did those for all 17.
It's weird the two versions got licences at the same time by different publishers.

Luis Baker
Luis Baker

At first I thought I would like Ise, because he seemed like a Harem lead that would actually fuck the girls. I stopped reading after the holy swords arc at the beginning because 3 of the harem girls straight up offered to fuck him and he did not. They weren't things where he didn't hear them clearly or whatever. If you are going to have a hotblooded pervert MC what is the point if he won't have sex with someone that offers it?

Benjamin Rivera
Benjamin Rivera

Been thinking about getting Vampire Hunter D, are the volumes likely to go out of print?

I've been meaning to start Spice and Wolf but I'll probably wait until I have all the volumes at hand before doing so.

Anything I should be aware of coming out soon? I know there's Baccano out this month along with Yahari.

Ive always heard of people saying they read the light novels, but i didnt know there were physical copies in english. I thought everyone just read them online. Where do you guys buy copies like ?

Ive been wanting to get into light novels for a while now.

Bought the first three brand new on Amazon a while ago
First and second volumes have creases in the corner but the third is absolutely fine

Anyone else experience problems like this with Amazon when it comes to anime and manga related things? I mean, it's not like it would be difficult to ship three books together without getting them damaged but Christ that pissed me off.

Luke Cox

I got 17 from bookdepository and it looks like shit. It was in bubble wrap so they had to trow it around beforehand.

David Richardson

Does stuff like 'Mardock Scramble' and 'Summer of the Ubume' count as LNs?

Logan Edwards

I'm just glad I ended up getting the anime original covers instead of the ones with the 3DPD girl but it annoys me how they turned up in that condition even though I paid for them brand new. I could easily smooth the creases out but still.

Dominic Cook

The 3 volumes I got from Hastings were used copies, but Amazon still sells new copies for reasonable prices, so I don't think you to worry about them going out of print soon.

Julian Smith
Julian Smith

Thanks user, I wasn't sure they were a popular title enough for the publisher to still be printing them but I think the artwork cover is absolutely gorgeous. Love both of the films though. I wish they would make more D.

I guess we were mostly lucky with Spice and Wolf. As a translation it wasn't perfect but it was definitel good enough, at least for me.

NGNL on the other hand has been a very different experience. I'll have to research what's shit and what's not in the future.

I had a pretty good streak though. Haruhi, Spice and Wolf and Index were all solid enough - accepting that some shit gets fucking americanized in america and turbo weebs can deal with it.

m...muh honorifics bruh!

I started buying it around vol 2 or 3 and stayed on the edge up to vol 10 hoping they won't drop it. Time sure flies. I'm still stuck halfway volume 5 with whole series on the shelf.

Robert Price

There an animated series in the works by Unified Pictures and Digital Frontier called Vampire Hunter D Resurrection. It'll be CG, but it has both the original author and the director of Bloodlust onboard, so it probably won't be shit.

This has to be a ruse. Off to the archives. How long ago was this?

Brayden Wilson

I enjoyed the whole series, but I have to say that I enjoyed the earlier books more than the later ones. The interactions between Lawrence and Holo getting in trouble were a lot more interesting when there was a lot less love going around.

I've read all of Haruhi, that was great. I also got up to about book 13 in Index, they're pretty shitty but still fun

just finished reading pic related, fucking hell that was a wild ride

MC has a valid plot reason for a harem
MC is an Alpha++ that deserves his harem
Actually do lewd stuff freely without misunderstanding bullshit
Girls are OK with sharing him

I can no longer appreciate most generic harems. This is just too good.

Koyuki a cute.

Brody Powell

Landon Collins
Landon Collins

try this MC starts out as generic "idealist who loves his everyday life"
As his everyday life gets destroyed turns out he's so obsessed with his everyday life because he's in denial of past events
Also his ideals go down the shitter and he goes completely insane. It's pretty good

Owen Cruz

Sebastian Foster

Oshit, I forgot about the Monogatari series.
You should definitely read Otorimonogatari, even if you've seen the anime
That was by far my favourite book in the series, there's loads of great stuff they skipped on TV

Parker Sanders

Well I have Spice as ebook. Too bad I cant bother reading them. Anime ended things pretty well
