Btw lare, so far until volume 4, are there any hints of romance or crush(es) between the characters in the LN?
I haven't had time to start on v3 yet. But both Tatsuya and Miyuki have admirers. I think Erika and Leo make a good couple though I'm not sure whether they have progressed at all.

So many couples...but I wonder how "Ichika" is the MC? Does he realize that Miyuki has feelings that is beyond familial love? Does Tatsuya has any love interest?

At the same time Tatsuya has a lot of haters too. I read bits and pieces of v3 (haven't got the time) and the first chapter of v4.

ha, I wish I could read japanese. The japanese are much farther along than the chinese translations, which are the versions I read. The chinese have the 1st, 2nd, 3rd volume completely translated and the first chapter of the 4th volume. One other translator is also working on the "Past Arc" when we see Tatsuya before his current self. It goes into the family part of the story, which even if you only read the manga, is a major part of this story. Oh yeah,

Hmm that was kind of expected, I guess. But I wonder how his relation with his sister was at that time though??

WTH, why do they have so many Jp->Ch translators? And they only have volume 1 done just a month ago? And this is no easy stuff to translate. But from that alone, it's easy to see that this will be one of the next big things. Anyway, I'm retired.

Well, part of that is simply because of the raw population of China. The US has 300 million while China has 1.3 billion. That's a 1 billion population difference.

One also has to remember that the Chinese language is a much closer language to Japanese than English and Japanese. The syntax, sentence structure, grammar, idiom, and diction are similar enough to make the translations quicker. In English, oh my god, it's like rewriting the whole entire novel. You have to read it, choose the appropriate word choice and choose the appropriate structure to express the meaning in the original work. I first started translating the Jin Yong novels back in ~ 03, 04. Did it for a while and never wanted to be part of translating again. I briefly considered doing High School DxD (before na@om started) and Campione (did a part of volume 7) and I quickly remembered why I never entered the translation community in the first place.

As for the big three (manga, anime, light novel), the US has a great and slightly superior manga translation community. For animes, they're roughly on par in both speed and quality.

Where the US lags way behind is the light novels. As far as I'm aware of, the US only has baka tsuki. The Chinese has a FAR more vibrant and expansive lightnovel translation community. They even have sites specifically for translation
Spoiler for site:
They had the likes of Hidan no Aria, Infinite Stratos completely updated before the animes came out. I know Legend of the Legendary Heroes is completely done (including part 2), Chromed Shelled Regios is up to volume 17. The only anime that they didn't catch up to before it came out was High School DxD, which is now at volume 8 chapter 4.

EDIT: I felt like adding some information about the power levels in this novel. That said, there will be heavy spoilers so you're warned

@whsie
After reading your spoiler, all I thought I knew about this LN has changed...
So he's like Layfon + Lelouch without Layfon's stupid attitude or Lelouch's physical weakness?
