15 thoughts on “How about picking up a new project? :)

  1. i has chose two nomura mizuki work and taiyou no channel(seem interesting).

    but i think you should decide by yourself, since it’s what your like the most and you will motivated by that.

  2. This only prooves that japs LN readers are mostly dudes!!
    Im a shonenfag myself, so im content of how this poll is heading! 😉

  3. Hi, the three I voted aren’t among the top three ones >.>. Just to know, they are Aoi Haru, Ayakashi ameya and kamisama no gouyouin. There are others that seem interesting but I preferred these three. I’m not a dude but I also don’t like shoujo (usually) so I don’t know how ended up voting like this ^^
    Anyway, anything will be fine.

  4. My votes are:

    Isekai Meikyu no Saishinbu wo Mezasou – sounds like a web novel but I like these stuff. not top priority but higher than gender bender one (brrr)

    Glau Standrar Empire Story – seems nice like mahouka. havent read it yet but i hope the characters are more interesting than mahouka

    Reverese;End – the cover looks really interesting, nuff said

    If I can vote more than 3, I’d vote the rest of the lolis. Why not? they have lolis

    for Kenja no Deshi wo Nanoru Kenja – seems something krytykal might like so you can just dump it on him/her/them

    The others have the same feel as your current project so you might be more comfortable with them (please translate what you like, I’d like a complete story instead of a half-hearted one)

  5. maybe put those volume 1 to 3 LN or light novels are very slow to update to the next volume to be set into monthly release per chapter with that we can have time variety

  6. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh *Me screaming in frustation-cum-joy*. Seriously?! We get to choose?! And so many incredible choices! And the majority neither VRMMO/reincarnation, NOR HAREM!. Heart Crusader, Nutella, I thank you both from the bottom of my heart, for considering the above genre novels for leechers such as us.

    But *Sigh*,really, with all the cool-sounding intros, choosing is really hard. In the choices came up to include:

    (1) Higashi Ikebukuro Stray Cats. (Loved Kamisama no Memochou)
    (2) Shinigami Hime no Saikon (Liked the manga, and Icarus-Bride is currently swamped irl. He might agree if you mailed him.
    (3) S.I.R.E.N. -Jisedai Shinseibutsu Tougou Kenkyuu Tokku- (No reason, just want to try it out.)

  7. i voted for realia. i love saiunkoku monogatari so i would love to read the author’s new work, and it sounds interesting too.
    shinigamihime no saikon, i like the manga a lot so i would love to read the LN too, well only if Icarus Bride isn’t gonna continue it anyway. and i would love to read more of shoujo LNs like these (& see more of shoujo being translated).
    oujo cochran to negai no akuma. summary interest me plus i’d like to read the work of kaminai’s author since i really like kaminai.
    though like another commentor said, pick what you like since it’d be more enjoyable translating something you really like. though nevertheless, my picks isn’t in the top 3 but i would love it if you would consider it.
