Given that Izuru had experience as a VN/eroge writer, the merchandise success of IS would attract quite a few options if he decides to go back and write a VN. In fact, I felt that IS would fare better as a VN than an LN (though I only played Lost Colors and Clannad)

Let's hope so IS as a VN would be epic.

Even for the smaller LN labels outside the Kadokawa kingdom, they dare not hiring a rouge just for pissing off Kadokawa, as they still have to rely on it for distribution channels, marketing, media-mix projects and whatnot. Of course his work ethics is an equally nasty deterrent.

Right now both physical and electronic distributions of his works has been ceased. There is no official statement from MF yet of putting an end to IS, but rumours suggest that it is only for reducing the collateral damage towards the innocent artists working on adaptations of the series. If it is true, the adaptations may be brought to a relatively quicker end but still with enough stuff to fill a volume for publishing (so that the mangakas can get their share). Official announcements from the company will then come afterwards.

Personally I am more interested in seeing him writing a non-fiction account on the dark secrets of the Japanese publishing industry and the light novel scene.
No one messes with Kadokawa when it comes to LN merchandise. If you're a good writer, you earn the money. No one is bigger than the team.

Although I'm not going to lie, this makes me feel really...I'll take it out on my punching bag now...
I provided a draft, you guys can write it, and we'll release it on Baka Tsuki on April Fools Day. (The plan is for 10 volumes, so you guys can sort it out yourselves. I'm grateful that I don't have to pack IS into my schedule already.)

I agree with this. I'd enjoy playing said VN that's for certain. [as long as I didn't have to go the Houki route first to get to the others, or unlock the Chifuyu route!]

On the rest of the issue. It's sad that things fell apart, these novels were a guilty pleasure of trashy novel to read. (thanks Teh_Ping for all the hard work translating)

@ Hawke - Well, harem protagonists are usually regular teens who are stupid to love and have Next to no interesting qualities about them apart from being a nice guy- Hey! He sounds perfect

No problem, I'd make better choices than he ever did in canon anyway.

Phoenix Wright is a good enough example: 9/10 times you're forced to do the stupid option since the game gives you no other one. This continues till near the end.

Replay IS as Amagami style! I think that would rebuild things real nicely.

But now I know I'll never have problem with [SHOOTiNG ST@RS].

So, my fanfic productivity, [TRANS-AM!!]

Wow. Just.....................wow.

I don't mean to be self-centered, but I notice that this happens to a lot of the stuff I like.

Kannagi's mangaka had/has health issues that caused an extended hiatus.

Zero no Tsukaima's author also has health issues.

Kaze no Stigma's author died an early death in the middle of the novel series.

Jinki keeps getting transfered around different publishers, causing the plot to feel like a jigsaw puzzle because of the constant jumping around publishers.

Now Infinite Stratos is dead too?

UGH.
