    The market is very niche, we're not getting commercial LN translations anytime soon.
    dunno i see more and more people reading manga here dont think its that much of a stigmata anymore like a few years ago ;X back when i startet reading mangas and watching animes (not the ones airing on tv) i was probably 1/10000 that actually did that but now more and more people below 25 start picking it up and u even see a few people reading mangas in the train every day ;X

    also sure the whole phrasing is kinda different in LN's atleast thats how it felt to me reading parts of Mondaiji but i still liked it and i think alot of people would buy them if they released them in the west. i would bet 50% of the people watching log horizon and liking it would buy the LN's ^^

    also i just saw tsuki has now translated log horizon up to volume 5 chapter 4
    the samurai brother of the two twins was complaining about how it was so difficult because he was supposed to be tanking, but everytime they'd be near a monster, they'd always go straight for the level 90. *perhaps* it was just a threat generation reference, but it sounded like he wasn't even attacking, they'd just aggro the highlevel on sight.

    Bah, it looks like somebody may have trolled them with a Google translator and other nonsense. Guess that happens sometimes when anyone can submit translations for the lines.

    It's still moving quite a bit faster the last couple weeks, at least.

    I hope they're trolling, but apparently Cthuku isn't subbing quartet anymore.

    That would seriously suck. I heard Watashuki (sp?) might be picking it up, but I don't know how credible that is. I know it's free and they don't have to do it, but if their reason for quitting is true, it's lame of them to stop with only 2 episodes left. I wouldn't care if there were other groups subbing it, but they're the only ones.

    Hopefully this is them trolling.
    pls no pls

    That's in line with how I'd rank them. Gamagoori is way too awesome.

    What do you guys think of an anime like this.

    The world is a peaceful place and looks just like ours when God or a higher power speaks to everyone in the world saying he wants to play a game. He gives everyone in the world a battle power but doesnt tell them how to use it, then he spawns monsters or as people of earth would call them "Invaders" to start massacring the people of earth. Then in the sky is a leaderboard that shows your rank and how many you have killed, but only the 15 rankers around you, but not showing your image, only your name. It would also show how many people of earth you have killed in the rank information. Then to the side it would show the top5 rankers. So in this world not only would they have to fight the invaders but they would also have to fight against some of their own kind who hold evil intentions toward their own people.

    It could also have some sort of academy where they could have people training, or that could be a spin off of what its like in the future. Thoughts?

    That sounds completely ridiculous. If it got some comedy in it, I would definitely watch it.

    Ridiculous bad or good? lol It could comedy and i also havent figured out a back story for the main characters yet or main male and female heros. Not gonna lie there would more than likely have some romance in it

    Framework does not sound bad, but this kind of setting needs to be either a very light comedy(Think To-Love Ru, it does not matter if the world makes sense because it's not supposed to.) or have a very, very in-depth explanation... and making this kind of plot actually make sense is a tall order.

    Also, it is a very loose bunch of ideas - binding them together into an actual story is the hard part.

    Good. I think. I like the sound of it though.
