Xill (6 months ago) #1906717Did anyone read the light novel or manga of Magdala de Nemure? It's from the same writer as S&W and I was wondering whether it is any good.

I have to say, while I knew about it, I never got into it nor did I choose to read it.

While it may be good, I did not see anything that made me compelled to find out more about these new characters.

Sorry.

Katto (9 months ago) #1790728I like the sound of that! I'll go with the anime first! :) I prefer physical copies as well because reading eBooks and lots of text online in general give me headaches.

I started with the anime first too, then bought the novels. The anime covers LN volumes 1, 2, 3, and 5 in 6-7 episode arcs. There are some changes in the anime, but nothing notable as far as I can remember. For the LN's there are 18 volumes and the 10th is being serialized in the US this Dec. 2013. There is a secret translation group that hired a translator to translate the series because well you know how long it takes for stuff to get from Japan to the US. I've read both and the translation is pretty much on par. I actually prefer theirs vs Yen Press. If you get that far, shoot me a PM and I can link you to the translation.

I do all, but it's up to you really. I started with the anime, then bought the novels. Keep in mind the anime is only the first ~3 novels, and as per usual, things have been changed. The novels are currently only half way done (yenpress official translation) too. Fanlations are complete, afaik. But I like holding a book in my hands to read so I buy them all.

I have also been collecting all of the manga, but not started it yet; I wanted to read it after I finish the novels.

Generally speaking, I say watch the anime, then read the novels. At least that way you will be able to use Jun and Ami's voicing in your head while reading. :D

Curious question for someone completely new to Spice and Wolf - is it better to watch the anime first, read the manga or read the LNs? I'm tempted to go with the LNs, but for something this popular, I think it'd be worth asking the fans for advice :P
