Isn't this is just because it's the recent trend? I think the author of Oreshura said that series with long titles are most likely the ones to sell well... I'm not sure...

I'll just go with the flow I guess?

Few years ago is the "imouto" trend, where most new series mostly involve sisters who's in love with the MC. After that is the "Zombie" trend...

Now, it's the "maou" trend... I wonder what's next...

This is getting way too generic.

Way too much of this brocon-siscon incest shit as well as the very long and shitty uncreative titles.

This is the quality of modern day anime? Brother-sister incest and long statements for titles of which people have to find retarded short names for?

Erm no, this is just the indication of your skill level at finding good non-generic shows.

A common mistake people usually make is that they tend to watch shows that they already know they wouldn't like, but go through with it anyway to show that they have integrity and character.

What integrity and character...I bet they aren't even buying anything related to the title

Unfortunately giving a novel series the title "I Have a Normal, Non Incestuous Relationship with My Little Sister" gives the impression that that's likely to change over the course of the story...

Apparently the folk here who claim LNs are being plagued by imouto love.

Looks like I have to bump this thread after seeing yet another long-titled anime series getting an anime adaptation.

Well, at least it looks a bit tame compared to "My Sister is A Dragon and I'm Going Bald".

Long titles are annoying and difficult to remember. I think titles should be easy to memorize and simple.

I don't think so.
But "My Sister is A Dragon and I'm Going Bald" does.

Honestly, I like this title.

As imouto concepts go, having a Dragon-Sister is actually really cool!

And I can personally relate to the bald part, lol.

Well, i can't outright blame you though, considering that there's only a few LNs which already translated into English (in Baka Tsuki), and that many of the translated ones are your typical eroge setting with baffling title. I suggest you to take a look at baidu (if you can read chinese, of course), where they have regular updates on many interesting, non harem LNs (currently, which intrigue me the most are Rokka no Yuusha, Moshidora, and Biblia Koshodou)

The myths surrounding BT, its translators, and the reasons behind the translation quality just keep on growing year by year that I'm too tired to even bother correcting, but what? Get your facts right.
