Wouldn't matter; the author is the one that decides how ecchi a series would be, the illustrator just comply with the request.

Meh, different illustrators work better with different genres, just like authors. My guess is that authors seek out different illustrators (if they can) depending on the content of their stories. I mean you wouldn't have CLAMP (I know they're mangaka, but I don't know many illustrator names... so I'm putting forth the hypothetical situation where CLAMP's distinctive style is used for pure-illustration) working Hagure Yuusha now would you?

Actually, it's not the author that chooses their illustrator it's the Editor/Publisher that pairs them. Heck, it's not uncommon for Author and Illustrator to never meet in person.

If CLAMP wants to work on a Light Novel, it doesn't matter what the genre is because they have a brand name already that would attract interest- The Editor/Publisher main concern would never be 'Does this fit the Image?'...

Big boobs, girls on cover...why I won't be surprised when several chapters in we get nudes of one of the girls?

There is a certain type of influence, Editors won't say give the illustrator of Gundam Unicorn a LN done by someone working for MF Bunko for example. He won't be able to convey the extremely fanservice driven scenes you get from MF Bunko.

I'm more surprised you think we would need to wait several chapters

Well obviously they wouldn't pick such an unattractive and ancient art style, but for everything there's not real limitation save for what the author wants. Plus the illustrators themselves have to be flexible enough to draw things outside of their comfort zone.

14 volumes down the road Kiyotaka Haimura had to find a way to draw irregular shaped mecha for Kazuma Kamachi despite mecha's aren't his specialty.

I think this needs its own thread somewhere.

Is Baka-Tsuki's translation site down? I was going to double-check something in the LN but I can't get to the site.

I really should have copied all of them, to be honest.

Baka-Tsuki is down every Sunday.

Probably because of the thousands of people comparing SAO notes =_=

It still amazes me that SAO (by the author of Accel World, no doubt!) almost didn't happen just because he went over the page restriction for LN submissions and he decided to make it an online-only novel.

If we did, I never noticed

But we pretty much destroy their server whenever a new volume is out

Well, now there's one (or two) manga series that'll end this summer.

They are stopping it after 4 volumes, it did have a decent fan base on the English manga sites, but I can't say I'm unhappy it ended. I personally liked the novels and the anime a lot better, something about the manga art I didn't really enjoy. Well it may not have been bad, mostly personal interest. Anyways, means the rumored art on some sites of a possible "season 2" weren't for the manga. If it's authentic, my hopes for a season 2 anime are raised. I agree with ZeroXSEED that it isn't surprising, considering Media Factory gave the Infinite Stratos rights back to the maker. Anyhow, I think I saw somewhere that Media Factory kept the anime rights. Sorry, if I repeated something, just skimmed this thread and wanted to join in the discussion.

You know, why do I have the feeling that IS is going to be very, very dark once Volume 8 comes out?
