anyway my i have a vague idea that the story may be going towards a devine accendance path simply because of mynes repeating pattern of losing and gaining families... adoption into a pantheon as a lesser assisting godess of literature seams pretty logical...
The Sol Press website now has an initial message saying that there isn't a web site set up at that domain, and then redirects to the nfoservers web site; I gather they're the folks who were the hosting firm.
That sure looks like Sol Press didn't pay their hosting fees.
Not a good sign.
It might actually be a good sign? Before the domain was not resolving at all (ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED). But now it resolves and points to the hosting again.
@harmlessdave Absolutely with reading the LN. In addition to additional details, you get lots of things that there's no way the anime, even with a second season coming, could possibly cover. Truth be told,
@custodes It's been a good trip. I hope the author ties up the biggest loose end. Although the synopsis for the next volume hints at it, I'm not counting that chicken until it's fully grown, never mind hatched.
I've got the feeling the ending is going to be a touch bittersweet and maybe a bit like Paying to Win.
@elliemoran Yeah SAO was great, I pretty much view that as the gold standard going forward for LN audiobooks.
What impressed me so much with the narrator is that he’s genuinely a good audiobook narrator, which not all voice actors are. He reads text in an engaging manner, does voice differentiation without going overboard (as Shield Hero narrator did) and mixes up his narration pacing to rise and fall with the action. I was genuinely blown away and actually imagine I’ll re-listen to volume one before the years over (it doesn’t hurt that I also love the series).
indeed the skillset for a good VA and a good audiobook orator are not the same (I imagine that there are some significant overlaps in the Venn diagram however) Wil Wheaton (yes, that Wil Wheaton) pulls off audiobooks quite well (Scalzi's Redshirts or Fuzzy Nation are both a hoot!)
+1 to @Thomask - if you don't have a top grade orator - a dramatic rendition is the only acceptable audible book to me- if narrator/orator is 'off' I can't get into the story, and listening to an audiobook is a chunk of time I can use for something else - I want an audiobook to be at least as good of an experience as reading the book, otherwise why bother? it costs more, takes more time etc. (Yea multitasking etc. but I don't have a commute anymore)
