Rensa could use all the esper's power, including accelerator's but cannot use 7th's power.
p.s she could also use accelerator's wings.... both black and white

she is too overpowered

I don't think she would be as skilled as the Level 5s would, she would be like a kid swinging a club while the Level 5 while be like expert swordmen.

Can she use the powers of the lv5 simultaneously or one at a time?
And is her usage of the ability similar to the lv 5 or she can access the powers without their personal limitation like Misaki using remotes and such or Mugino's meltdowner
If she can do it simultaneously then she really is OP but if not then she's just strong...

We just have to wait. The strange thing is that she can't use the 7th's power. Does that mean that the gemstones, though similar to the espers, have a completely different type of power?

I don't think it's the fake's name- Unless that's an important fake.

As for Rensa, yeah that sounds slightly more balanced.

Well, compared with Taktisubo and Nayuta she has more limitations. Anyway, she tried to take IB from Touma but she failed and her hand was destroyed,right?

Come back to animesuki after a long hiatus and now I see a huge thread on all the series that are based on light novels.

What a change since 2004 when no one even heard about the term "light novels" and I actually had to go to lengths to explain what they were for Full Metal Panic.


Do you guys all read the light novels in Japanese? Or does someone translate them into English?

I can't say how it is in other cases, but for the To Aru Majutsu no Index light novels there is js06, a very devoted translator of baka-tsuki, who translates new volumes in merely a few weeks. So most of us are reading them in English.

Most popular light novels are being translated nowadays, Kawahara Reki's works Sword Art Online and Accel World for example seem to have a rather active translation project as well. The fans of the Monogatari series seem to be suffering though, since the complexity of the source causes headaches for everyone trying to translate it.

The popularity of LNs seems to be rising since the Haruhi Anime in 2006, with Shakugan no Shana and other similar LN adaption following it and becoming quite succesful as well. With the rising count of LN adaptions, the interest in the source materials increased accordingly.

The hilarious thing is that nine years later people still don't really know what a light novel is

Interesting.

Do you guys have access to BookWalker app for iPhone and Android to buy the digital version of the light novels in its original Japanese form for those that can read Japanese?

I personally use Amazon Kindle nowadays to buy light novels that are available through there. Saves me money and time and bookspace. Unfortunately, not a lot of Kadokawa LNs get digitized into Kindle, mostly MF Bunko J LNs like Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko and Haganai

How are Nishio Oshin's Monogatari series more complex? Is it more difficult to obtain abroad (abroad meaning outside of Japan)?

Quick question, are there any spoilers/translations for the conversation between Mikoto and Misaki about chasing after Touma?

I believe he was talking about stuff like complex phrases, kanji and puns, etc.
