Give It a Light Novel Title Challenge (Tag Post)

Thanks to Scott for leaving the nominations open and Dewbond for starting this tag.

(Update: Apparently Irina tagged me for this too, but I didn’t receive the pingback…thank you too.)

The Rules For this Post

  • Choose up to five anime, manga or visual novel series that have a short title. Light novels that have shorter titles (Date A Live for example) are also allowed.
  • Give these series a new title based on those classic overly long light novels we love! If someone has already picked a series you wanted…it’s OK! Let’s see your own take on the title!
  • Link back to the original post so I can read people’s suggestions, I’d love to read everyone’s ideas. (It’s this post right here.)
  • Include “Give it a Light Novel Title” in your tags so everyone including myself can find them all easily. (My tags are getting out of hand.)
  • Nominate around 1-6 bloggers.

I tried to find the shortest titles I could use which I still remembered clearly enough to write about.

Hinamatsuri

I’m a Psychic, My Dad’s a Yakuza, My Classmate’s an Underage Bartender, My Fellow Psychic is Homeless and I Don’t Care About Much of It All

Samurai Flamenco

Absolutely No Samurai (or Flamenco) Was Involved in the Making of this Slice of Life…Tokusatsu…Thing

School Days

I Can’t Possibly Cut Off a Relationship with My Potential Girlfriends! (That’s How I Screwed Myself Over)

Un-Go

In A Dystopian World, No One Can Figure Out if The Last Great Detective is Using Supernatural Means to Solve His Cases

Ameiro Cocoa

No One Remembers This (Supposedly Groundbreaking) Series Because the Episodes Are Far Too Short…and Let’s Leave It That Way…

Long Sidebar: I think I remember being vaguely interested in Ameiro Cocoa when I first heard about it because it was the first manga in English and Japanese that allowed you to switch between those languages for both text and audio (hence the “supposedly groundbreaking” bit).

The problems with Ameiro Cocoa is 1) the episodes are 2 minutes each (as stated above) and 2) it looks pretty terrible once you see it animated, not to mention 3) it was a Funimation-only affair (but Crunchyroll has subsequent seasons due to the Funi x CR relationship of the time), so the fact it eventually got 2 (!!!) subsequent seasons still amazes me to this day…


Tagging (no pressure to anyone who name isn’t Shoka):

  1. I’m still alive! Just… busy. Thanks for the tag though! I’ll probably respond in the regular time frame. 2-3 months from now sounds about right for me!

    fr tho, I was giggling reading some of the titles you came up with. Raising the bar as always!
