Damnit, wish more of the novels were translated, each one seems to be worth about 4 eps but only the first one has been fully translated.

anyway, one part I did find interesting is

Spoiler :
Kuroneko said "I'll be calling him something else soon enough" when Kirino tells her to stop calling kousaka "Nii-san" and then Kuroneko is practicing catgirl poses in front of the mirror in the credits. :awesome:
she's come a long way from her ice queen vampire self

Seriously did not expect this show to utterly own Yosuga no Sora which I was really liking for the first few shows.

But considering the ending of Yosuga no Sora (didn't hate it, but I could have done without him screwing the daylights out of his sister), and considering how in this show, the brother and sister do NOT want to screw each other at all, this show wins for being able to remain intelligent about that matter.

My friend and I both agree, the scene where he finds out what his buddy has been stuck doing is THE best one of the whole show.

....is possible

We both laughed our butts off with that line :)

I liked the 12th show, I don't require any different endings.
Anime, one of the few things about the internet that doesn't make me hate the internet.

Agreed. GOOD END. Although it's worth noting that the BD extras have a couple of hilarious animated audio commentary tracks with little "SD" versions of the characters...definitely worth watching.

Well, my friend has persuaded me to check this one out. I was originally gonna bypass it because lolwut, eroge games, but the animation looks so nice and I saw this epically dramatic scene online with this Ayase girl having like a mental breakdown over friendship, and then turning cold when she finds out.
Want to watch. :3 It'll be like Nogizaka Haruka: except with eroge games and better animation. xD

well manga is more popular over there than in western countries, considering how close the countries are geographically it's not surprising. plus korean manhwa (equivalent of manga) has a decent foothold in japan as well, as a number have already been made into anime (Japanese made).

anyone know a good translator who would be willing to do the novels? I would be willing to commission someone to translate them.

Well, the only ones I know willing would probably be the ones who translated volume 1, Baka-Tsuki. I would do it but I'm busy translating a visual novel.

Actually, Baka-Tsuki is just mirroring Himatsubushi's releases. Dunno who is TLing it in the group, but editing is done by EvilLinkz. I guess you can ask him? :P

I would think novels would be relatively easy to translate. after all, manga needs to be scanned, translated, typeset, cleaned etc. with a light novel you pretty much just have to translate, and they are not really long either. any person who is bilingual in both languages should be able to do it I would think, or am I missing something?

That depends entirely on how one chooses to distribute the translation.

If you're going with text slapped on a website (perhaps a Wiki, or just plain HTML page), then it needs scanning (of the images, light novels aren't pure text), translation, and editing. If you're going a step further and doing PDF copies, there's also the need to typeset and actually construct the PDF.

Translators aren't as common as one might think, either. It's often hard enough just to get a translator working on a manga series, doujin one-shot, or anime series, all of which have far less to translate than a light novel does, at least on a time invested/translation output standpoint. I'm not exactly up on how long the common one is, but the examples I have seen are usually between 100 and 200 pages. 100-200 pages of mostly text*. And depending on the age demographic the novel is for, the kanji used may require much more experienced translators (this is often one major drawback to doujin translations, since many of those use Japanese that's idiosyncratic to their authors and don't provide furigana guides the way that mainstream shounen/shoujo does).

*The amount of spacing and page use can vary as well.

episode 12.5 is such a better ending than the original episdoe 12. Now we know what kuroneko meant when she said she'd be calling him by a different name. I can't wait for the other extra episodes and possibly a second season.
