    @jjch102296 Just posting the name, especially without a translation of it, does not sell your suggestion.

    Take a look at the other novel/manga suggestions, and give us some more details. You can edit them into your first message.

    Err, this topic is really lacking all kind of information. Unless you update it with some more details: publisher, an english title, a cover image, a summary, number of volumes and so on.

    Have a look at the other topics in this forum for an example.

    EDIT: @SomeOldGuy beat me to it by a few seconds 😅

  • The publisher is Shueisha anyway, so y’all know...

    @terabyte Just because I'm old doesn't mean my reactions have slowed. I even avoided that arrow fired at my knee.... :)

    Highschool Prodigies Have It Easy In Another World is the Yen translation.... I think.

    Edit: I'm wrong, lol.

    @terrence That's a different series. I looked it up and the english title would be something like "Humans are the Strongest Race ~Starting a Slow Life with an Elf Wife in a Different World~".

    Ah, thanks.

    I got faked out by the look of the elf. xD

  • @someoldguy is this better? I am just wondering how you can request a series and if they will translate it would they send a message or do you have to just wait?

    @jjch102296 You can only wait and hope. Once you see an official license announcement, that's it.

    Here's an example of a recent LN license I posted 9 months ago:

  • @jjch102296 JNC won't respond to any of these topics.

    As fans, we just want to make sure licensing companies are aware of the titles we would like to see in English. On the business side, JNC could possibly use these topics as a single, minor data point - upvotes can be used to extrapolate interest in a series, and it's tangible "proof" that can be shown to license holders that their series could do well in the English-reading market.

    It looks like there are a few chapters of fan translated works for this "book." There also seems to be a manga. The book(s) looks dead as far as translations go, the manga was updated a few days ago. I haven't looked at either, I just did a simple "ask google" type search...

    It does sound interesting to me though, but I'm a sucker for isekai type stories.

    This sounds like a typical beta idiot MC, read some of the reviews on the web novel and it pretty much confirms my suspicion. I'd avoid it like fire.

    characters feel extremely one-dimensional, unrealistic and easily forgettable. MC is your absolutely typical clueless dense useless piece of japanese impotent wimp, who is in addition to his previously mentioned qualities also dumb as f**k and careless enough to induce headaches. His consort, the elf is in love with him for no other reason than him being MC = human. It feels like all the characters in this story have been designated one function and they amount to no more than that.

    I wouldn't really trust WN reviews that much. There are 2 major things that can result in a completely wrong view of the work: the LN might be different, and the WN translation itself could be as crappy as it gets (MTL without edit, etc).

    @silvermane I think the last time I saw an update to this Wn was 2 years ago. It is still in my NU profile but to be true there are better stories out there.

  • @saskir like which ones? I haven't read this book I just heard good things about it. Also, I like other world stories, like Arifureta and smartphone

    @jjch102296 I don't think a request thread should be used to recommend titles other than the subject of the thread (unless it's in a "this title will appeal to fans of this other LN" way), but I would look at the other request threads on the forum. In particular, look at what people in those other threads say about why they like that LN or why they think it would fit well in JNC's catalog.

    Because honestly, if you haven't even read the book and all you can say about it is "I heard good things about it", you're wasting your time with this request thread.

    Request threads work by convincing other people--and ultimately, convincing Sam, the one who actually licenses stuff--that the title is one worth licensing. If you can't say anything particular about why a title is good, then you're basically hoping the premise can sell itself... except that the premise of this story is about as "generic isekai" as they come. I and many others here are fans of other world stories, but nothing about this one's premise sticks out as to why it should be licensed over the bajillion other isekai LNs out there. And if you can't say anything else good about it, then that does not give Sam or anyone else any more confidence that it's worth licensing.

    That doesn't mean this title is a lost cause, though. If you've "heard good things" about it, then tell us specifically what those "good things" are. Obviously, it's just the opinions of whoever said those "good things" and not inherently any more meaningful than the negative opinions of the work posted earlier, but it's still better than nothing.

    Of course, you can always read the story yourself and based on that, tell us what you love about it in particular. Just give us something more specific to work off of.

    At least it's better than some recs which are "I have no idea anything about this series and don't want to Google translate the synopsis, but the cover art sure looks cool!!!"

  • @stardf29 I read part of the manga but like most manga that was from light novels, I bet more than 50% of it is taking off. It is strange how the MC is the only human left and ever part of the body does something weird. I mean he is super overpowered, is first try of a spell destroyed a moon. A single hair gives someone extra power which is kinda like m.h.a. but anyone can get the power. Acute slime drinks some of the same water of the human then the slime becomes super strong. It is all weird and seems pretty funny. I wonder if there is going to be some actual Plot though. So far there isn't any really solid plot but that was only 7 chapters of the manga so who knows.
