Light novel suggestion



  • I am assuming that light novel suggestions can be posted here, so sorry if they are not meant to be. I have been hoping for a translation of two light novel series.

    First, Nyaruko: Crawling with Love. Or also known as its anime adaptation name, Haiyore! Nyaruko-san: Crawling with love. A personal favorite of mine of anime, and am dying to read the last few arcs and epilogue that the anime adaptation didn't cover. I really want to read the ending where I hear the stubborn Mahiro finally gives in :)

    Then there is Love, Chuunibyo & Other Delusions, or also known by its Japanese title, Chuunibyo demo Koi ga Shitai! Another anime favorite of mine. I hear the light novels are not as well constructed as the anime adaptation, but I would still love to see the story in it's original format.

    It would be nice to see these licensed and translated, I don't have my hopes set to high because I know you guys are a business and have to translate what will make you money because translating is far from an easy job. So I understand. Regardless of a yes, no, or maybe, a reply would be appreciated. Having an answer will at least settle me. If a no, would one of the translators be willing to do it in their free time for some extra cash?

    If I can suggest, I would love to read Rakudai Kishi no Eiyuutan and Choujin Koukousei-tachi wa Isekai demo Yoyuu de Ikinuku you desu! ( Both Misora Riku )
    Then, The Different World Magic Is Too Behind! ( Isekai Mahou Isekai Mahou ha Okureteru! ) or Zero no Tsukaima.
    Or something more dark - Isekai Goumon-hime.



  • I would suggest "Chuuko demo Koi ga Shitai!"

    I realize it probably too late for this one but I would love for Kokoro Connect to be licensed, I was a big fan of the anime and would love to find out what happens after it ends.

    @Eternal-Wanderer There were some OVAs that continued the story that weren't up on legal streaming sites stateside, just available on the DVDs. I don't know if the series extends beyond those.

    I'd also like When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace. I haven't really found any info on if that continues much beyond the second to last episode or so before the show went off rails.

    If possible I'd like to suggest, "Shinka No Mi" light novel as a series to look at.

    @Terrence Thank you but I actually am aware of those OVAs and I'm actually going to watch them relatively soon, but I know there's plenty of books set after the OVAs and I would love a chance to read them.

    @Eternal-Wanderer I, in other hand, had no idea about those, so going to watch them one of these days :smile:
    Also would love the light novel of Kokoro Connect :3

    The Kokoro Connect TV anime covered the first 3 volumes, with the OVAs covering volume 4. The series has 11 volumes in total.

    Inou Battle's anime mixed the order up a bit, and skipped most of the content, covering various parts of the first 7 volumes of the series which is currently on 12 volumes.

    ROMCOM slice of life would be nice. Gamers! or Saekano.... we already have enough action/adventure titles, we need more variety.


  • Premium Member

    If we're suggesting titles, I'd love to have "For my daughter, I might even be able to defeat the demon king"; it's a very sweet story about a young adventurer who finds a demon child in the forest. He ends up infatuated with her cuteness, that he basically adopts her.

    It's published by Hobby Japan, so I don't think it would be to hard to licence?



  • @Pmf96 just can't help myself when I see someone recomending kokoro connect. I love it so much I just had to make a comment! :3


  • Premium Member

    @ImIlyaz same exact reason that I left a comment :smiley:


  • Premium Member

    Kokoro Connect would've been awesome, indeed. But it doesn't seem likely at all. I hope we'll see something romcom/slice of life-ish soon enough.


  • Premium Member

    @TUSF I would love to see it too. https://hobbyjapan.co.jp/hjnovels/series/3/ I read the WN and I definitely like it.



  • @yoshimin I agree with yoshimin if i see more variety i might get premium. I hope Yowa-Chara Tomozaki-kun get's translated. It recently ranked 8th in the last Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi, and people are saying that it's the opposite of Oregairu.



  • @Renaisance you have my attention!! What do you exactly mean with "the opposite" of Oregairu? As I loved that anime and are currently reading the light novels. And could you give me a brief intro on what it's about

    Seirei Gensouki ~Konna Sekai de Deaeta Kimi ni~ this one is really good too, and publisher is Hobby Japan, I think you have a good relationship with them.


  • Member

    Isekai Mahou Isekai Mahou ha Okureteru! and Sekai no Owari no Encore are my requests simply because of enjoyment.

    Edited for more details:

    My brother suggests High School DxD, Date A Live, Campione, and Biblia Used Bookstore Casebook, though I think some are Kadokawa, so unlikely.

    I'd like to add to those with Yuusha Party no Kawaii Ko ga Ita no de, Kokuhaku Shite, which is a great slice of life romance isekai.
