More:
Nisio Isin, frequently written as NisiOisiN to emphasize that his pen name is a palindrome, is a Japanese novelist and manga writer. He attended and left Ritsumeikan University without graduating. In 2002, he debuted with the novel Kubikiri Cycle, which earned him the 23rd Mephisto Award at twenty years of age.

He currently works with Kodansha on Pandora, the Kodansha Box magazine, and Faust, a literary magazine containing the works of other young authors who similarly take influence from light novels and otaku culture. He was also publishing a twelve volume series over twelve months for the Kodansha Box line; Ryusui Seiryoin was matching this output, and the Kodansha Box website stated that this is the first time in the world two authors have done twelve volume monthly novel series simultaneously from the same publisher.

In February, 2008, his novel Death Note Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases was released in English by Viz Media. Del Rey Manga has already released the first volume in his Zaregoto series. His Bakemonogatari and Katanagatari novels have been adapted into anime.

Overrated garbage.

Before anyone attempts to call him lazy, just for the sheer reason that he is a troll, remember that NisiOisiN writes 5~novel series at the exact same time, and has multiple different manga series ongoing on the side. This man puts out more 200-page novels in a year than both Miura and Togashi put out 20-page manga chapters combined. That's serious dedication in it of itself, showing just how much he loves writing, and the fact that all of his works manage to be distinct from each other, shows the tremendous amount of thought he puts into literally everything.

This man is a fucking genius, even if he isn't perfect.
Not everyone will like what he has to say, but the fact that he said it and it causes controversy, means that there are both merits to what he says, and shows that he is willing to go through with and prove those merits.
He doesn't shy away from any topic that would naturally come up when discussing his premise, and I love all of his works for it.

Thanks for Medaka Box

@Llato If a writer can't effectively convey their work to their audience, then they've failed. Personally, I understood the novel and therefore liked what I got out of it. If someone can't interpret the same text I did, let alone the mangled adaptation - in addition to simply being each individual's right whether they like or dislike it - it should be seen as understandable why they wouldn't like it.

ReCREATORS character Nishio Ōnishi was clearly based on this massive pervert.
