At least this one was already translated in Baka-Tsuki.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.

Hard to say. Premise is good but I'm not impressed with male lead and it started quite slow. Need to finish v1 to say more.

Excellent news. I really liked the 1st volume of this.
Haven't gotten round to reading volume 2 but it's slowly but steadily being translated. Props to rpapo for keeping up with this.
Let's just hope it retains the feel of the LN. The manga adaptation is too light-hearted for me that it feels like a different story.

For series like this, which is ambiguous and subtle, it's important to get a basis beforehand on whether the series will be worth watching by clicking on each of the main characters (especially the ladies) and see if these characters are hot.

The same female author who wrote Toradora.

A bit unusual to have a college student as the MC. Interesting.

I wish sometime her older work "Watashitachi no Tamura-kun" will get animation as well.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

The synopsis and the characters description aren't doing it for me. Another MC with amnesia >.< I feel like I know the whole story already. I'll give it a try though. Comedy is one of the tags and this is written by the same author as Toradora, so it cannot be that bad right?

I knew it will get animated.
But it is such a boring novel. I actually felt that watching presentation about culture during school assembly is more interesting then this. I was reading this series secretly because I was bored but this make me feel more sleepy then that.
There are good(sadly, just the minority) parts which is why I force myself to finish the first volume.
I will watch the first 1 or 2episodes for the good part in volume 1.

The fact that it's not in high school makes it seem significantly more interesting.

It will probably be picked up by a terrible studio though.

Several points:

(1) Terrible studio - We shall see. Toradora wasn't terrible.

(2) Law Story - Not really. The story is about the students, not about what they are studying. The author remarks that these have to be the most awful students: they seem to be doing everything but study. Their law classes are in the distant background of the story.

(3) At least there's a translation on Baka-Tsuki - Only because I started working on it the minute the first volume was in my hands, a week after it was first published. A bit of a gamble on my part, though: translating something without any idea as to how good the story would be. The gamble was on the strength of Toradora, frankly. Everybody else had other things more immediately interesting for them to work on than something that was, essentially, an unknown quantity.

Do we already know who the studio is? Or are you just guessing it'll be someone bad?
I think rpapo's point is to address some points raised by others in this thread. I don't think rpapo personally thinks that the studio will be a terrible one. Somebody else said it and he just commented that "we shall see" and Toradora did not get a terrible studio.

Also I don't think we know which studio will animate this LN yet.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

Your assumptions as to my comment are correct. We don't know who will animate it, so it's too early to judge.

Awesome news.
I was expecting them for a bit actually.

I'm not reading the novel, but the manga (which I'm reading) seems to be following it quite close, while being one of my favorites.

Hopefully it's going to get animated by J.C. Staff or Madhouse...

Thanks for your efforts to translate the light novel series. I for one have really appreciated it!!!

As to those that have said that it's a typical 'amnesia' storyline, well for me I think the novels have handled it really well and very much in a non-trope way.
