The chat is the traitor!
@Sam-Pinansky yes, I found it at the back of the books however I do believe I would have seen it eventually through google searches as that is how I found the English publisher for Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon.
The three books I bought was Little Apocalypse book 1, Grimgar book 1, and My Big Sister Lives in a Fantasy World. I loved all of them and was dying to find more info about future releases
@Terrence Albedo is my phone wallpaper haha. I can understand how Overlord wouldn't be to some peoples taste. Overlord is a really deep read, with what could be considered long periods of uneventful circumstances if you don't connect the dots (which I often don't because I gloss over things).
What is truly extraordinary about Overlord's writing is how intelligent the world and characters are, how the books convey their sense of scale, fear, awe, and sometimes just write an amusing silly moment. There's a lot of text to sift through, which is uncharacteristic of the general light novel scene. Overlord takes immense pains to craft a world beyond the character, to take those characters and let them truly exist in the world its created, they all have motivations, fears, likes, dislikes, and sometimes, exist without definite purpose, because that's what life is.
To me, Overlord is a window into something familiar, yet something totally unlike anything I'll ever experience, a grand stage to play out the dull intricacies of humanity with circumstances taken to the extraordinary. Most light novels are fluff like this one, where the world and it's characters exist to be shaped by the protagonist, to be experienced by the reader at face value. It's exceptional light novels like The Faraway Paladin, Overlord, and Grimgar that transcend the superficial experience. That being said, fluffy reads can be fun too sometimes! I'm reading Smartphone and I hope it doesn't get any more Harem-ie than it currently is.
@Aruseus493 said in Crunchyroll Lowers Video Bitrates For Shows After Release Day:
It's just PR. It wasn't a new issue, it's just that their greed has gotten so bad that it was affecting the simulcast viewers more obviously.
There were some comments from CR suggesting that it's not the case and you should probably wait (unsubscribing meanwhile would be justifiable too) for technical details. Dunno if you're supposed to fell better about that but apparently most of that regression was result of lots of technical mistakes rather than cost/quality decisions.
In case you find it unplausible, let me remind you that funimation serves 64kbps audio regardless of video bitrate which goes up to 10Mbps (i.e. in 1080p case they are "saving" 10MB per 1.6GB episode by making audio sound really bad), this audio was the only option for watching in UK and watching via apps for almost a year and it was already reported last summer.

My Love Story
She disliked them all
I love Ancient Magus Bride but I felt Romance with Sci-Fi especially Dark Sci-Fi would automatically make my sister say no.
The only problem with comedy is that a lot of those comedy manga make jokes involving Japanese culture or media.
Like in monthly girls nozaki-kun that bicycle joke about not having 2 people on a bike together, she would probably yell at me saying how am I suppose to understand that.
Speaking about GoodNight PunPun I personally find it scary to read. So I can see how others may be put off.
Also definitely go read A Brides story again it's one of my personal top 5.
I'd just like to chime in with this good ol' article. That pretty much paints the picture that, yes. If you want a second season of your anime, you'd have to buy the blu-rays.
Now of course, there's probably some other interesting ideas other than that. For example, Light Novel second seasons are more likely to happen due to good sales of Light novels. Though maybe Sam could pitch in. I'm not sure how well Konosuba sold blu-ray wise, but it did increase the sales of the novel by threefolds.
