Sounds potentially interesting (maybe cause I'm an mmo player), assuming the studio doesn't ruin it with over abundant fan service.


However a manga based on a LN can be very different than both the LN and any anime that comes out of it. Shin Sekai Yori for example, the manga is a totally different thing in terms of fanservice.


ugh the SSY is one of the best examples of this, the manga cheapens its story with the amount of fan service.

I'm not sure how bad I am shooting myself in the foot here, but I will go on record saying I am all about this series. I hope it's as funny and naughty as it sounds.

It sounds like a mortal wound to me.

People who take gender seriously online are morons.

I just assume everybody is male online. Much safer that way.

At this point, I can't shake off the feeling that the industry green lights literally every light novel adaptation.

Or at least, they sure aren't selective.

As KnowYourMeme said, while it is sexist to assume there are no girls on it, there is also a certain amount of equality that be surmised from such a viewpoint. Assuming everyone is a male negates the benefits of being a females, as well as potential downfalls. Now as someone who plays a female character I see such benefits, and occasionally exploit them, but what happens when you assume everyone is a boy? The adage, "there are no girls on the internet" refers to the equality often bestowed upon on us by anonymity, where the computer illiterate jock gets his comeuppance, and few people get special treatment. Yes, such a glorious day on the internet for us all.

The Haganais and the Devil is a Part Timer (s) adaptation of the world never cease to amaze me. I do think there's some romcom benefits to be glean here. I will be tuning in. I'm a diehard fan of games, especially with social functions I.E. MMOs.

I just see people's IGN/tag and put no thought towards what gender they are. The annoying people to me are the ones that act like using an alt-gender character is some kind of atrocity or think that guys do it simply to manipulate other people; personally I play alt-gender characters cause in some games they look badass or if I'm creating a character from a story of mine within the game.

I don't think I am being noble or anything like that, but practical. I try and treat each person with respect. But until you meet a person in the real world than a certain amount of reticence makes a lot of sense.

You see I try and not use name/professed gender/race or class determine how I treat them. I base my actions on how they treat me. But I tend to be like myself in game environments. I try and be kind and helpful to all. Perhaps I am just strange that way.

Haha I never hooked up with anyone from an online game before guy or girl. However I did try once. I met her, ended up hooking up with her roommate instead like 2 days later.

Now I do have two married couples who are friends that they met through Everquest and WoW and have been happily married for years now.

You, and they, are far braver people than I am.
