Why the hell aren't his novels being translated is a good question.
I've just finished a GOOD fan translation of The Tatami Galaxy by a guy who actually had some idea of what he was doing and it was incredible. I wish I could see a profesional take on it.

So unique story telling! Morimi-sensei works have such a depth without trying too much.
two of his works are my most favourited titles, uchouten kazoku and yojouhan shinwa taikei, are both masterpiece!

I would love to read the Uchouten Kazoku novels - in the anime, the story's world and characters are wonderful! I couldn't find any sources about them being translated in English. :(

Gênio! Obrigado por Uchouten Kazoku e The Tatami Galaxy.

Glad Uchouten Kazoku is getting a sequel.

Not listed on here cause it's a novel but I think it's only a matter of time before Pengin Haiwei gets an anime considering it won the Nihon SF Taisho Award.To name a few series that won that award and later got an anime: Mardock Scramble,Shinsekai yori,Harmony.

The anime is much better than the novel though.

@Petoyusa what's wrong with praising fanfic? And it's not fanfic anyway, it's an adaptation.

Petoyusa | Feb 21, 2016 3:12 AM
Funny how people praise him for Tatami Galaxy, even though the anime ist just a fanfic of the actual novel.
