I might just remove said references.

On another note, with the resolution of personal circumstances, I shall resume translating.
He's actually talking about the bit in chap 1 where Reki carries the Lei Ji kanji. I made that note to clarify stuff...Apparently it may be confusing....so it might be prudent to remove them? I dunno...

In actuality, he was talking about Kazayuki's line at the end of volume 6.

His second post commented on the double-meaning references I placed in volume 4, and that was what my former post was directed at.

So is it diverging from the novel?

No it's not. It's actually being pretty faithful for the most part. All it's really doing to make it worse is cutting out some details, removing Kinji's inner monolouge and has a bit of a rushed pacing.

I've heard that it's rare for JC staff to do faithful adaptations though, so I guess this is good on them then.~

Though why are we talking about the anime in a Light Novel thread?

I would argue that removing Kinji's monologue is in fact an improvement rather than making it worse.

I think it hurts his character. When you can't see what the character is thinking about certain situations then you could get the wrong impression about them.

The only thing I don't like about Kinji's inner monologue is how dense it makes him look. The most recently translated chapter is a good example.

The only plausible excuse I could accept about it is that his English was so bad he didn't know A, K and R were the English first letters in his, Aria's and Reki's names. But I seriously doubt that.

I like his character better when he's not "thinking out loud", because when you get down to it- he's complaining about A LOT of things- mostly about girls and what horrible evil and devilish creatures they all are for being so sexually attractive, then he would move on to how Butei is a hateful place of abnormacy.

And yes there's the dense part, but I'm used to protagonists being dense; this is the first time I've seen one outright 'hate' girls though...

Anybody would have a "Just as planned" grin when they're surrounded by bare naked ladies

I understand how the anime turns out and how they cut out some cute scenes, epic scenes and how the story arraged. However, I always remember what Kurimu said in Setokai no Ichizon, it is called differences in media. We must always remember that.

Look at the bright side, at least we now enjoy the anime and light novel together at the same time. We are able to look at it in first person and third person view.

Some questions about certain characters. what happen to the Kokos after their capture?

Kinji sums it up when he got back to school:

"I don't know the details and I don't wish to know, but I hear that Tsuzuri does some rather horrific stuff to suspects during her interrogations. Good. Let them get their punishment."

After that, well, let's leave it to our imagination.

how about dodging snowflakes during a blizzard.

or dodging all those cute girls swinging melee /shooting magic powers/firing bullets at you while giving them each a kiss one the cheek, and making them blush while walking away with a smug smirk on your face.

That is too good to be true

If I have not see the illustrations of the newest novel, I would have screamed when Reki decided to shoot herself. Is that what they call "good thing in bad thing"? Thanks to the bullet somehow misfires even after passing the strict quality exam of Reki, she still is alive It looks like Shirayuki and Riko getting along well. That is one less thing for Kinji to worry about his harem, I guess.
