Okay well then... Could you tell me anything about [Kokoro Connect] then ? I get the general synopsis with the [Love Pentagon] and the [Body Switch], but what about the story and character interactions?
Teh_Ping, I'm not sure if I had asked you this before, but do you follow [Rental Magica]? If not, do you know which of your Baka-Tsuki Inner Circle members do? I've bought vol 9 because it 'looks' like where the Anime had left off- though it's difficult to tell since the timeline isn't linear... But more importantly I would probably need help understanding some parts given my weak language skills.
Have you read any of them? The two that I think I've heard/seen before are [说谎的男孩与坏掉的女孩] and [樱花庄的宠物女孩]. I could be wrong about the second one, but the first one I've definitely seen it being talked around here...
First, anime companies are seeing that it's relatively easy to adapt a story rather than having to write the entire script out. If they see any story that's worth doing, they'll work on it sooner or later. Good stories won't remain on the shelves for long here.
Second, humans are copycats, so for LN case, the authors would see what would sell and work on it.
To be honest, the only series that I think had a remote chance is Campione!, and even that's a long shot.
A thought just occurred to me, on the topic of Kono Light Novel again...
...What are the chances of a new title, one that hasn't gotten a Anime adaptation yet, breaking into the top ten? As you know every title in 2011's ranking has an Anime, and those that didn't eventually did by the end of this year... What are the odds of another 3 Anime-less titles making it big in 2012?
