General Light Novel Discussion

Post  Himegami Aisa on Mon Nov 23, 2015 5:37 pm

On the negative thirty second day of Christmas, Libertas gave to you, four threads in the General Chat Subforum♪

So, this thread is for the discussion of all light novels, not just A Certain Magical Index. You looking for recommendations? Find something good that you wanna share? Something new get licensed by Yen Press, the gods granted to us by the light novel heavens as a reward for faithful service? Well, this is the place to talk about it.



So, since it got brought up the in chatbox earlier, I suppose I might as well talk about it. A series I read a while back and quite enjoyed was Heaven's Memo Pad, or Kamisama no Memochou. It's the story of how a rather asocial boy comes to know and be involved with a rather eclectic group of NEETs, especially Alice, who is a self-proclaimed 'NEET detective'. The series actually takes on some rather topics, like drugs and human trafficking, and it really doesn't pull many punches. It all feels very, well, real. It does have some nice comedy to balance it out, though. All in all, the characters are very much the strong points of this series, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to read.

Have any of you read Heaven's Memo Pad? What are you reading?

*Pops out* ʕ•̀ω•́ʔ✧
I heard someone say...
LN THREEEEEEEEAD!!!! ✧△✧
Yaaaaay~ (≧▽≦)

*Cough cough* Sorry, I just had always wanted this thread haha xD (Yes Jack, I wanted this thread even more than the manga one Razz )

Anyway~

I have not read this LN, Jack, but how you described it really made want to read it Very Happy

As for LNs I am reading, well, right now i do not have the time nor the mental energy (T~T) to spare on making detailed reviews of each xD So I will be just mentioning them for now, then I will get to details later~

These are the LNs I read/am reading by order of preference:

①Toaru Majutsu no Index (Up to date)
②Spice and Wolf (At volume 8 )
③Baccano (Up to date)
④Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru (At volume 11)
⑤The Circumstances Leading to Waltraute’s Marriage (Completed, it’s just one volume anyway xD )
⑥Heavy Object (At volume 2)
⑦Sword Art Online (On hiatus since last year xD I stopped at volume 13 I think)
⑧A Simple Series (On hiatus for now. I just read the first 30 pages of A Simple Survey, I will go back to it later)

Who also read one of those? Smile

& Those are LNs I am planning to read. I would like to know your opinion about them, guys. Which are worth reading? Which are better than the others? By what do you recommend I start? etc...

• Zashiki Warashi of The Intellectual Village
• Vamp
• Etsusa Bridge
• Mondaiji-tachi…
• Overlord
• Rokka no Yuusha
• No Game No Life
• Black Bullet
• Kyoukai Senjou no Horison
• Owari no Chronicle
• Tsukumodo Antique Shop

There are other LNs I would like to read but could not find them anywhere :/

• Durarara
• Hataraku-Maou sama
• Maoyuu Maou Yuusha

I see all of Kamachi's works on that list. Good Hiromi. Anyway, out of your list of prospective reads, I really like a lot of them, so it's seriously tough to rank them in order of recommendation... So I won't bother. Instead, I'll just list which ones I like the best.

In no particular order, Owari no Chronicle, Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon, Tsukumodo Antique Shop, The Zashiki Warashi of Intellectual Village, Mondaiji-tachi, Rokka no Yuusha, No Game No Life, Durarara.

...Hm that's most of them. Um, I guess that won't be very helpful. Hm, I guess I'd recommend to start with Intellectual Village? It's one of the shorter series among those, and is pretty easy to get into.

The reason you couldn't find Durarara is probably because it got licensed by Yen Press. Before, various translations of different volumes were scattered across the internet, but I bet at least a few if not all of them got taken down when the news came out.

Well of course~ I put them there because they are Kamachi’s Razz
Also there are all of Narita’s too (At least as far as I know there are no other LNs of his xD )

Okay, thanks for your opinion and recommendation! ^^

Saikyō wo Kojiraseta Level Kansuto Kenseijo Beatrice no Jyakuten





Japanese Title: 最強をこじらせたレベルカンスト剣聖女ベアトリーチェの弱点
Title Translation: The Weakness of the Level-Cap Sword Saint Beatrice Who Aggravated the Strongest

Author: Kamachi Kazuma
Illustrator: Mahaya
Release Date: March 10th, 2016

Summary: This is a story about Beatrice , a saint who has mastered both the arts of sword and magic in a parallel world. But that's also left her in the 'too-bright' position that makes her so lonely.

It's seems like she made a promise to marry a miniature Orc, though....

最強をこじらせたレベルカンスト剣聖女ベアトリーチェの弱点

恋もバトルも色々こじらせた【剣聖女】。
唯一の特効薬は、まさかのぶーと鳴くあいつで!?

 そこは剣と魔法の異世界、待つのは巨大極まる地下迷宮。呪文や魔法陣よりはるかに馴染みのあ るゲームライ ク方式で、魔法を管理し最強の座に上り詰めたベアトリーチェは、だが悩んでいた。 「ぶごごーっ!! ぶしゅるるる……むにゃむにゃ……」 「ぶっ、ぶーぶー! ストップ、すとーぉぉぉぉぉぉぉぉぉっぷ!! 潰れる潰れる!? こっ、 この状況は、 私の、あっ、愛が試されているとでも言うの……!?」  お昼寝ひとつで、かようにカンスト組の【剣聖女】さえ振り回す伝説の男『ぶーぶー』の正体と は。  あとなんか四ケタ級巨大ドラゴンとか偉そうなご長寿少女とか出てくるけど、全体的にどうする どうなる異世 界交流!?







So this is the brand new LN series by the freak of nature, Kamachi Kazuma (Toaru Series, Heavy Object, The Zashiki Warashi of Intellectual Village, Mitou Shoukan://Blood Sign) and illustrated by Mihaya (The Zashiki Warashi of Intellectual Village).

Details are scarce at the moment though..
