More mature adult LN's for premium members?



  • So far I don't think there are any Western localizations for more adult themed or mature LN's.
    One such light novel I can think of is "How to build a dungeon/Maou no Hajimekata" which is getting their manga localized in the west, but the light novel isn't being touched by companies and the FT is at a stall for the west.
    Any possibilities of opening this new frontier for us?
    Just use a credit card or ID or premium membership to keep underage people out of the section?
    Would love to see more Adult themed LN's (Not pure Yaoi or Yuri though, just good story without a fear of having adult themes.)

    Thanks for mentioning Maou no Hajimekata. It was a fun although not that serious read (manga). And there lies the problem. 1. Did I enjoy reading it? I guess I did. Especially in manga form. :P 2. Does it have compelling story and deep characters... meh not so much (collect a girl and that's about it). 2. Would I buy the e-book? Probably not.

    So yeah, I'm all for more adult themed selection of LN's but I'm more for a grounded low nonsense kind with deep story and characters. I'm kinda out of touch with LN scene nowadays so I cannot give an example but with something akin to S&W but with little more blood and action you can never go wrong. :D

    Well here's the good thing about this service. You don't have to buy the book. You are subscribed to this service so you can read anything you want on here. Whether or not you want to read it is up to you. However if you ever did want to give it a go, you already can once you are subscribed. And who knows, maybe you will find the story gets more interesting down the road, because it sure did for me.

    I wish I were more up on the LNs. I would like something Inio Asano esque in LN form [loving Punpun; Nijigahara and Solanin were solid too].
