Sometimes I'm a very cruel humanoid. This is one of those times, eh?

Now that you have been lured into my trap, I'd like to present the official point of this thread. How could we support Monogatari being picked up by an American company such as Yen Press? Heck, doesn't need to be American. I'd take British, so long as it is translated into English. Doesn't matter if it's the Queen's English.

Send them letters? Sign a petition? Donate money? Let's brainstorm. Heck, why stick to one? How do we support more light novels being picked up in English? How about more visual novels being picked up? More manga and anime? Let's expand our bases. So this thread can stay in general, mostly.

Also? I refuse to apologize for any excitement based heart attacks you may or may not have experienced.

You've broken my heart. I got excited for a minute.

Though, my only guess would be to purchase series related merchandise that have been officially released in the US, such as the anime. (I've purchased every monogatari set released so far.) Sales figures talk, so to speak. Prove the fanbase is big enough over here.

That's really my only guess really. Companies need to see that there's profit in localising a novel series, anime, or the like.

There's probably a lot more to it, but like I've said, that's just a simple guess.

Out of those 3 suggestions, I think I'd go with sending letters...full of Money. Since Money is about all that any large conglomerate, or hell ANYONE else for that matter seemingly cares about. I sure would like to see it come about Myself as well..

Maybe you could figure out how one might market it to a wider western audience.
