It wasn’t but that is a very special circumstance, since they already have up to volume 30 translated and the full prepubs released Volume 24 is probably all but ready to go, just waiting to catch-up as they only release 1 Volume a month.
Don't really read much which gives room for interpretation along these lines, wrong genre for me, but have seen a few anime which would fall to question. There are the obvious like Oreimo which I found interesting till it went too far, but most simply hint at a strong bond or no blood relation. I think most of the problems which the general population has with the issue, referring only to books or television shows, is coming from their own inferred idea of a relationship rather than just friends/acquaintances. People are fast to jump to conclusions that more is happening than is being read/watched just based on a close friendship. For example, even though nothing beyond friendship has ever happened in Love Live (unless you read fan fiction/doujinshi) I've seen references to the series being yuri. This isn't to say that series which actually cross the line don't exist, but rather that people tend to try to read more into the material than is actually there.
In a different context, although the beach episode is a common trope, sometimes you just want to go to the beach. Don't get me wrong on this one, A LOT of shows use this trope for a chance to add ecchi tones without really crossing the line. However, although less commonly used in this format, it's just about getting away for a vacation/break away from the normal hum-drum. If you're looking for an instance of this, Himouto immediately comes to mind, and for what it's worth, is even a series about a brother and sister where there is absolutely no physical interest from either of them.
Just being close with family doesn't equate to incest, and I feel that a lot of people want to jump to that conclusion. There are series, some rather popular ones, which do cross that line. However, inferred meaning doesn't equate to reality.
Or that the main character doesn't give a shit about random humans.
That's pretty much the exact reason I dropped LDM after the first few parts and am not interested in it. Not caring about people, even with the tribalistic exception of "except for my people", is more or less the definition of being an arsehole.
Also as for Death March, I was giving it a chance at first, but then I noped out entirely after Arisa's introduction.
After that first night where she (not the MC) tries to do something, the MC just shrugs her off and tells her not to harass him. Nothing ever happens, and it's just a minor bit of comic relief.
You're missing out on a lot of good slice of life including family adventures, cooking, crafting, occasional saving of the day, and generally being a tourist because of Arisa's infatuation.
@thomask the reason why you probably only found three on Amazon.jp is you might have searched for the name in romaji instead of their characters. When I did that I only found the three manga novels. Others pointed out my mistake back then. Romaji characters consist of A-Z where and their characters consists of their phoenetic characters of hiragana, katakana, and their symbolic characters of kanji.
I wrote a Wikipedia page on the subject. I didn't distinguish between "finished" series that were still being translated and series that still were being written. I did break out series that haven't had a new volume in over a year though.
I would also love to see this! I am big fan of the Orphen series and hope to see rest translated into english. I do not know of any more Slayers vs Orphen novellas other then the one. But crossovers are unique, because of that lot of people tend to want to find these gems.
@steelblaidd As a programmer if someone asked me to give them a "human sort" I would ask them for more information. "Just sort it as a human would", is way too ambiguous since there are literally millions of ways a human would sort it and everyone's "human sort" could be different.
Also please note that the only thing that is changing is the comparator (comparison method, routine, function, procedure, operation, whatever you want to call it because different programming languages call it different things) and the main sorting algorithm could and would most likely stay the same (bubble sort, quick sort, merge sort, etc.) However most non programmers wouldn't realize this so this point really is not that important so long as the programmer understands what the person requesting the change really wants.
Sort by series and volume number would be ideal, but if the publisher did not include that info in the metadata of the file then sorting by alphabetical title until you see a number would be a backup. Also remember that the more complex you make the comparison function the more time the sort will take. It won't be noticeable sorting 100 books but sorting thousands of books it will definitely be noticeable.
I enjoyed the start of idol but after Maori died the pacing just was too hectic, it felt like a PowerPoint presentation of Mika's life journey. I wonder how much is self delusions in regards to getting alien fans and the. blowing up their planet.
@ernesto On JNC it is standard for there to be a 1 to 2 week gap in between volume translations.
If you are wondering why V2 is not in the release schedule that is because the cover data has not been processed, which is usually the last thing they do, so in 1 to 2 weeks on the day when P1 is ready for upload and the cover is processed they will drop it into the schedule same day
I found that the anime was really confusing back when it first released and that reading the light novel even with its differences to be really helpful in cleaning up some issues with understanding. I'd definitely recommend reading the light novel.
