More than that, the scene was literally a chapter from Oreimo. I don't know if the same scene is in the Eromanga LNs too, but as far as I can tell they actually adapted a chapter from a different novel into an episode of this.

The entire second half of the After Story is exactly that scene. https://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Ore_no_Im%C5%8Dto_ga_Konna_ni_Kawaii_Wake_ga_Nai:A_Momentary_Chance_Encounter

Now that I think about it, one of the best presents he could give his sister is something interesting to draw.

To answer his question

Anyone know why they are not translating chapter 32-36 yet? The raw is available online but I would appreciate the translation. Is there a hiatus or DMCA-thingy going around that I didn't know about?

Did EMS just end at 36? :-o

Christ Muramasa Senju is hot. My lord.

The only thing these types of works inform me about is that manga and light novel authors are being exploited.

Editors seems to make more money and have less work.

Also this protagonist needs a boot to the head.

So... the next chapter will be the scene where I fell in love with Elf Yamada.

Surprised she didn't ask for Elf's underwear.

or Elf herself.

Kyousuke2.0 and half Japanese Legolas really meshes well together, they're both siscons.

The 'asking to get arrowed' and 'marriage proposal' riled up my fudanshi blood tho...

 

I do hope Elf get a good shot at this despite knowing who the author is...

Surprised she didn't ask for Elf's underwear.

You gotta go slow when it comes to the tease!

It's not that I don't get that Fifty Shades is

collapsed for space

I completely feel you, especially on the last part. (Although I'd have closed with "Believe it!" just to twist the knife, because I'm evil.)

All that said, I'm still following it and I'm grateful to the scanlators for the amusement it provides. So the author is doing something right, even if it's unintentional comedy. (^_~)

Man, I like the imouto.

But she's just can't hold a candle to these two great girls.

damn that last

where the doujin ? pls

Pretty sure will come out next comiket when anime aired :P

Finished all chapters.

 

It's good. I would totally buy this ih it's released in France in the future.

Man, after reading through this, I had some flashbacks to when I was a teenager with dreams of becoming a bestselling author.

 

...

 

I wonder if it's too late to pick the hobby back up again.

I think you grossly underestimate the average reader's thirst for unfiltered garbage. For example, both you and I are currently reading this manga, and I can think of quite a few English-language books that sold spectacularly despite being criticized as mindless tripe. Also, authors and experts in general can be very disappointing in person, or outside of contexts specifically dealing with their area of mastery. Even a true genius of their craft can come across as boorish, silly, or idiotic, and expectations of those who deal in salacious fantasies should be even lower. Third, Japanese sales numbers cannot be compared to international numbers, since most novels (not just light novels) end up being published as numerous cheap tiny booklets instead of the large mass-market paperbacks in the US (even a relatively short, "literary" novel like Norwegian Wood was published in two volumes). 4 of the top 6 best-selling Japanese novelists each wrote over 300 books. This tends to inflate total sales numbers accordingly.

Therefore, the ridiculous characters of this novel could be thought of more as comically exaggerated rather than as outright unthinkable. Reading a work entitled "Eromanga-sensei", you should be prepared to accept a lot of silliness from the start.

 

It's not that I don't get that Fifty Shades is one of the best selling novels of the decade, or that authors can't be eccentric or socially awkward or incapable in other areas of life (or rather, the stereotype is that they tend to be so). It's that I can't believe these characters have any talent towards writing, crafting stories, or tapping into the public's thirst for tasty garbage. With the exception of Elf, who has at least followed some of the cliché of the so-called "eccentric genius," nothing about these characters are convincing to me.

 

They come across to me as stupid and incapable, unlikely even by accident to write the next Sword Art Online, at best only able to ape the latest Isekai-Slave-Harem-Bullshit. OK, that maybe enough to follow a trend, but the numbers being touted by the author here is far too exaggerated.

 

Most decent authors are able to at least create some impression that their "artist" character is capable of creating works, even if we never once see them write or draw or sculpt or make music. Genius little girls are more common than not, and people roll with it. But I don't get the same impression here, and that's a problem. The "core" cast are supposed to be popular writers (+ illustrator), but Elf is the only one I can somewhat shut down my disbelief for. The rest just comes across as "create a generic character, call it a writer, add Dragon Ball power level sales number. Believe me, folks."

I'm only a few pages in, and I'm already having flashbacks to Kirino's fake dates in OreImo. 

The harem shenanigans aside, my biggest problem is that these idiots do not make for convincing super popular authors, like, at all. Hi, I am Generic Harem Girl In Kimono, I have zero demonstrated sense of literary skills, learning, poetic talent, and/or the ability to capture a generation's zeitgeist. I communicate with my crush by being socially awkward and bitchy. I write with old fashioned tools because wut iz computerz. By the way I outsell Harry Potter.

Unless this author's Japan's readership are crying out for a hundred Stephanie Meyers, I just don't -believe- it.

Damn Elf just went full thirsty and cemented herself as best girl.

No boobs, no love. >_>
