Twice at the very least. With livestreaming to the rest of the class.

Two times, one of them broadcasted to the entire class plum, another one after being revived. Also he did have sex more than 1500 times with Asama and Mitotsudaira.

Isn’t the Toori sex revival thing kind of an asspull? It’s like Kawakami wrote himself into a corner with the contract and had to BS in order to get out of it.

Pretty fucked up that Toori gets to come back and not people like Yoshiyori or Anne.
>>
>>20362693
Are you retarded or just pretending?

The whole contract worked as intended, if he breaks the contract, he dies. It was Asama the one who managed to mess with Shinto thanks to her abilities ( which came from her her lineage since her mother was already increadibly good with this ) and allowed toori to stay in a place right before the afterlife.

Yoshiyori and anne are a completely different matter, Yoshiyori sacrificed himself in order to open a future for Musashi and Satomi, he wasn't affected by any contract and nobody was able to save him. Anne was already dead, only thanks to the life support is that she was still in this world, in fact she couldn't even remember herself when dealing with the Dragon Reactor, plus she's not working with Shinto so there was no way to save her and the only person with the authority to do something was XIV but he knew this was her own will.

If that wasn't enough for you, Toori is less powerful now, his contract was completely overpowered and now since he's some sort of demi-god he can't really use his new power all the time, Asama is weaker now unless she fulfill certan conditions and the same goes for Nate so this isn't an asspull by any means, is completely understandable considering how religion and technology works on Horizon.

As usual, Kawakami's showing off some considerable historical knowledge. The potato played a huge role in European food production.

>According to our most conservative estimates, the introduction of the potato accounts for approximately one-quarter of the growth in Old World population and urbanization between 1700 and 1900.

See: https://doi.org/10.1093/qje/qjr009
>>
>>20367411
When Kimi mentions Europeans disliking it for being a root vegetable and being ugly, she's referencing the Doctrine of Signatures, a sixteenth-century European belief that the shape of a plant corresponded to its effects on the body. Hence walnuts were good for the brain, etc.

Since potatoes back then were much uglier than they are today, they were associated with leprosy, and in fact many areas had them banned.

Potato cultivation didn't really take off until the Thirty Years War. The armies wreaking havoc across all of Europe fed themselves by taking from local peasants, so it suddenly became much safer to grow potatoes (which could be left in the ground) rather than wheat or barley, which could be stolen easily.

TL;DR posting summaries on licensed light novel but instead of deleting it and send a warning the retard just straight up banned me for 30 days so I told him to fuck off.
I mean what's the point of having light novel threads where you can post spoilers or little summaries when they get triggered because of daddy CR?

Ok people let's play a game while we wait.

What do you want to see from these options:
>Edge
>2nd Ahead
>More Obstacle
You MUST say why.
>>
>>20374073
EDGE 100%

The war in the heavens, other solar systems, new planets and evolution of all the species. Just imagine all the possibilities.
>>
>>20374073
I feel like Obstacle has more potential for time loop fuckery, and I'm a sucker for those kinds of stories so I'd love that.
On the other hand, Edge is the most unexplored so it might be interesting to see how exactly it differs from City.
Mostly I think it would be fun if Kawakami went back to being Aerial City-tier edgy again. Horizon and Hexennacht are wonderfully goofy but I know he still has it in him.

You have to keep the spoilers short. A cliffnotes version, if possible. If you post long summaries and literal translations they will ban you.
If you just post "X beat Y", then elaborate little by little in further posts as if you were actually discussing, then it's fine. That's what they've been trying to get people to do all this time.

The only thing that kinda annoys me is if they have reprinted CITY, because most of my copies are second hand.
They're not in bad condition, far from it, just a bit of yellowing on the pages, which looks better than the books do after I read them, but still buying them new would be kinda nice.

After the naval battles Horizon encounters Fate and performs body docking and becomes giant Horizon. She pro-wrestles.

雪崩式 is a pro-wrestling move:
https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E9%9B%AA%E5%B4%A9%E5%BC%8F

North Sunlight Bomb is another wrestling move
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh_mqJsF4Hw

Basically Horizon pro-wrestles fate.

Sounds like bullshit, but might be real. Nothing on 5ch yet for the record.
>>
>>20375602
Sounds right, Destiny/Nobunaga have one full set of weapons and Horizon have another full set of weapons that were made to counter Nobunaga's.

The last volume is probably including the fight between them which is something bond to happen.

Okay, and as for the afterward. Kawakami says that he is planning to write side stories and continuations to their adventures, but it isn't stated it will be next or what the next series will be.
The second half of the afterward is mostly contemplation on how his idea from junior high school finally reached completion and such.
>>
>>20376134
I remember js06 speculating about something like that as well because it always said that the "main" story is over.

>>20376134
Not even sure where he could go from this. I mean side stories is good and all but what's next? The books can hardly get thicker, nor the content crazier.
I'm kind of hoping the next series is conceived as an anime.
>>
>>20376156
Hex could be argued to have been conceived as a possible anime. City is even structured as something edgy from the late 80s, with tits and gore flying around.

>>20376133
He is there in various pictures right?
>>
>>20376156
He still has Edge to fill out, so probably that. After that, he can just focus on SoL.
>>
So the Twitter spoilers were real, we got a good ending with everyone saving the day an a massive participation from the characters, important ones such as the pope, Rudolf, turenne using her spirit for and more stuff like the sacred beasts fused together.

Horizon and toori finally together in the "horizon". Looks like the ether moon was destroyed and now is a ring surrounding earth which reminds me certain old title that showed something similar.

Also based on the afterword, this is the reason why the Amazon page and some other Twitter spoilers said this is the ending of "the main story". Probably we're getting more GT and other side stories like that.
>>
>>20376674
Not really.

Edge is one of 3 more eras missing, he has a lot more to do than that.
>>
>>20376635

>>20376718

>>20376715

>>
>>20376134
That appears to be the trend these days. Main series ends, 50 "spinoffs" and "epilogues" to keep the author fed.

>>20376892
>>20376910
That's not going to happen with kawakami, if you guys haven't been following this for a long time you wont understand why.
Side stories for Kawakami are literally things like girls talk which are the same size as normal LNs, continuation of the adventures for different characters would be nice considering that they saved the world.

Knowing how kawakami works, he's probably going to wait for a bit before publishing a complete new era for his works but we're getting that for sure.
>>
>>20376919
I want to see what happens with class plum or their future kids, after all they are the second generation, imagine the SPEERS but multiplied x2 and all the crazyness with Class Plum.
>>
>>20376892
Kawakami writes spinoffs and epilogues because he wants to. Horizon isn't THAT popular that the publisher would force more to be written so it'd sell under the brand name.
Sure, it's still profitable for them, but Kawakami has a loyal enough fanbase that he could write any of the other stories he has in mind and would still pull around the same sales so they'll just let him do what he wants.
>>
>>20376954
The Kyokai Senjou no Horizon anime was quite popular during its time. People not getting sucked in by the LN is entirely on him and his overly verbose, meticulously detailed, complicated and drawn out story. Horizon was certainly popular for some time. If he writes shorter spinoffs that aren't too reliant on the main story and perhaps a bit episodic, it's bound to sell. Dengeki bunko is also a very popular brand. The window of opportunity is there, but honestly I'd prefer to see him write something else.
>>
>>20376984
It wasn't massive in a 10 year period and it wont be that massive now, everyone knows that. Girls Talk proves that point too.

You can tell that Horizon in particular is a pleb filter, the fanbase is there because they wanted to stick thanks to how complicated and huge is the world, unlike anything else in the genre. Selling numbers aren't needed for this and it never will because it's been very stable for almost 20 years.
>>
>>20376984
>If he writes shorter spinoffs that aren't too reliant on the main story and perhaps a bit episodic, it's bound to sell.
I kind of don't think so. Long, overly complicated novels are also part of the Kawakami (and especially Horizon) brand now, for better or worse. Even if the text gets more accessible I doubt it will bring new people into the Horizon franchise. Though I see how the Dengeki bosses may make a different assessment.
>>
>>20376984
>The Kyokai Senjou no Horizon anime was quite popular during its time.
Not outstandingly, though. Remember it averaged around 20k per volume (which isn't bad, but isn't spectacular; it didn't top any charts). Getting the boxed set is pretty much a miracle.
Sales of the LN certainly got a boost from the anime, but still, it's not in the league of the really popular LNs. And I'd say it's pretty much too late to make shorter spinoffs that don't rely on the main story because who are you targeting them to? The people who watched the anime five years ago but didn't get invested in the LN series?

It just doesn't really make sense to do it as a milking enterprise.
>>
>>20377051
10k and 20k are their own clubs. Only a few hundred anime (less than 200 iirc) have had that many sales since 2000. And only behemoths like monogatari, madoka, Love Live and Evangelion surpass it. Just 5k is considered a success for a late night anime.

I can only dream that his 30 years of work will be paid off by some autist 20 years down the line starting an anime company purely to fuel Kawakami adaptations. The best we can hope for is more OVAs I guess.

I genuinely think crowdfunding is the way to go. Kawakami adaptions have shown to be profitable but the amount of work needed probably makes companies and investors wary. Letting the core fanbase fund it beforehand would probably alleviate any such worries, and they would still have the sales to new fans on top.

Fucking gmail and its so-called spam filter. Just let me get to the proper screen.
>>
>>20377339
American involvement is having disastrous consequences in Japan already. With jewish influenced moneyed groups pushing the wester neoliberal agenda. Numerous studios being overworked and crashing and going bankrupt. Sub par products being released because of tight deadlines and wages being suppressed while an ever increasing portion of the earnings is funneled through production committes (which companies like Netflix and Crunchyroll often sit at. In the case of crunchyroll, it's actually a form of charity fraud because they claim to be giving back to animators).
>>
>>20377324
I think mostly we need a trustworthy studio and a competent director. Sunrise and Manabu Ono would be ideal since they've already proven themselves, of course, but I'm sure there are other teams that are capable enough as well. The nightmare would be having a crowdfunding event with a notoriously shitty or unknown studio + director since I'd have to fund it anyway.
>>
>>20377399
Nothing of that is exclusive to (((anglo))) though. Square is notorious for insane deadlines in general for example.
>>
>>20377399
While I meant that as a joke, yes, the problem is very much real. You cannot, however, fully blame the jews(as much of a problem they are), as the Japanese have such a regressive mindset regarding work culture that it infects every office-based industry on that island to life-threatening degrees. Their inability and reluctance to change at a reasonable pace will be their downfall. It's a multi-layered problem with no easy solution, I think.
I can't claim to be too knowledgeable about production committees, but all I know is that they're literally a shit. That said, I only know a little bit about CR and if my knowledge of Crunchyshit from 4 years ago still holds true, then they only gives back a certain portion of membership fees while they keep all the ad revenue for themselves.
>>
>>20377486
In danger of going off on a tangent. What do you know about CR's split deal and do you have any credible sources/people you can refer me to?
I've come to know a quite a bit about production committees, but my knowledge on the internal workings of CR are still lacking. All I know is that they're in effect laundering money (members pay to crunchyroll, which then crunchyroll pays to production commitee, which crunchyroll sits at and thus recovers some of the money they "pay" to animators).
>>
Where do I pre-order me that special edition BD Box, and do they deliver outside Asia?
>>
>>20377592
Depends on where you get it.
>>
>>20377592
Amazon jp does international delivery for a reasonable price. They even have an English site.
>>
>>20377555
Apologies, but that was just stuff I remember looking up stuff a long-ass time ago, and I couldn't for the life for me remember where or even say with 100% certainty if the way I worded their business practice regarding fees and ad revenue was actually how they did it. The only thing I remember clearly was that CR was literally just Tazmo for anime before 'going legit'.

Doesn't look like it.
From what I've gathered the chapter is about transferring Toori from the shrine he is currently associated with to the Asama shrine and there's a possibility to kinda level him up during that process that requires some recognition of him as a "person" that can't be done because his father isn't around.
I don't think I've reached the point of the illustration, yet, but probably they thought of another way he could gain that recognition.

What would be really cool is if someone somehow got in touch with Kawakami to print English volumes in Japan and just sell them directly.

The complete box is sold out, the last volume including the box alone is still available.
>>
>>20383888
I think the copyright issues involved may make things a bit more complicated than that, sadly. Mostly because Kawakami likely does not own the copyright and if Dengeki had though there was a market for Horizon in English we'd probably have a translation already.

You know what level you need to translate this? There is a reason why JS06 is the only one able to do the job.

Most companies that works in this just have N3 or at best N2 with lots of N4. None of them can do the job on horizon.

Kawakami, you fucking madman.
>>
>>20384926
Js06 is great and far better than we deserve, but I strongly doubt he's the only one on the planet who could ever translate this. Maybe they won't be able to pay their usual English teacher the usual slave-wage to do it, but it's still a Light Novel series, not some old Sumerian stone carvings that need deciphering. The reason they haven't done it yet is because they don't see the market for an English translation. I think they're right.

And that's where you're wrong.

Horizon is super difficult to read and to understand, the inmense amount of complicated stuff makes impossible to translate certain stuff, even simple things like "Marube-ya" can't be translated if it isn't by Js06 knowledge. So yeah this is indeed old Sumerian as you said, even bitches who's at the N3 level can't read everything in these books.

Someone with N1 is expensive and also not everyone will take the time to translate over 25k pages.

The big thing is really the size of the project and learning to lingo associated with Horizon, with Kawakami's own quirks sprinkled on top.
It's not so much that it's crazy difficult, but rather that you have a solid base to work from and already have experience reading a lot of Japanese (you can't just jump from textbooks to translating a novel because the slowest part would be literally reading the Japanese).

For those who can already read LNs (or even translate at a reasonable level) it wouldn't be that difficult to start translating Horizon, after getting up to speed on the lingo. Preferably you would read a decent amount in the original Japanese first before starting translation so you'd have good grasp of the commonly used unusual words. The problem is more the scale of the project.
