    1. Pff he is funny? I think he is more retarded than Aqua. It's painful how stupid he is. I thought if i continue to read something may change, but he is still so weak and blame others for his own fault and his pervertness is his common sense.
      Sry for all who likes his aptitude, but that's my opinion though :P

  2. I've noticed this and i'm not sure if it is accurate isn't "Gifting" the 1st so far to have an Anime in this past few anime seasons that has the died and then reincarnated to a different world setting, though kazuma isn't exactly reincarnated.

    2. Unfortunately it is, especially strange since it is a parody of the genre. But since there have been a good number of manga adaptations for them, I hope the jokes related to the genre don't fly over people's head.

      That said despite being a parody, Gifting relies mostly on it's dialogue and slightly slapstick based humor. So I think it'll do decently if they manage to nail the humor right.

    4. Guys, don't get your hopes up, it's being made by studio DEEN

      And this example is one of the better ones, I couldn't bear to shatter your hopes with the horrors that is Studio DEEN's re-imagination of fate/stay night.

    5. Maybe because usually the novels with reincarnation in it contains alot of mature stuff.

  3. Yunyun or Wiz would be my pick but some rlly unexpected characters are in there....

    1. It's more like there aren't many named characters who appear repeatedly to begin with. People like Dust and the the bird are really there as joke entries for the most part.

      Though I guess they could have filled the entry list with the characters from the Megumin spin-off.

    3. Not that few. Chris where? Sena where? (voted for her btw).

      The bum scientist or the succubi onee-sans would have made better joke characters.

      I wonder if they keep advertising the guild receptionist as if she were a relevant character only because of her design. Sasuga DEEN.

    1. Yen Press Yenpress go away, come back another day. By another day I mean when you can translate at a decent speed and have more resources.

      Delete
    2. What did Yen Press do? They license the series?

      Delete
    3. No, but they probably will after the anime airs.

      Delete
    4. Will they? I wonder. This will be made by Studio Deen and you can already tell how bad the design quality is.

      Delete
    5. Hyaka Otaku. It's not so much what they do. It's what they DON'T do that's the problem. They license series then not only do they neglect to translate them, they outright refuse to let anyone else translate them. Then, only after all interest in the series has long since died and been buried, they MIGHT, if the whim strikes them, translate a chapter or two, maybe a whole volume, for the really lucky ones to spur interest in them before conveniently "forgetting" about them again.

  5. I don't watch gifting but here are rough translations from someone who can only barely read kana:
    アイリス Airisu
    アクア Akua (Aqua?)
    ウィズ Wizu (Wiz?)
    エリス Erisu (Iris?)
    カズマ Kazuma
    こめっこ Komekko
    Google translating this one because Kanji:
    ゼル帝 Zeru Tei, Soell Emperor

    ダクネス Dakunesu (Darkness?)
    ダスト Dasuto
    ちょむすけ Chomusuke
    バニル Baniru
    ミツルギ Mitsurugi
    ゆんゆん Yunyun
    ルナ Runa
    めぐみん Megumin
    The last option I put through google translate:
    Other character (please fill in the character name)


    Your welcome, remember, I never read gifting and I only have elementary Japanese reading capabilities.

    1. Pretty good attempt for someone who has never actually read the series.

      Most people spell the first one as Iris, and rather than Dasuto and Baniru, the English translations use Dust and Vanir. Other than that pretty spot on.

      Delete
    2. Yep, if アイリス is Iris, then エリス is Eris/Elis

    3. There is a video right there with a voice actor saying the names out.

      Guys, remember to differentiate between "you're" and "your". If in doubt, just don't use contractions.

      Delete
    4. MAN! I usually differentiate between you're and your! v.v

  10. I just hope gifting not get licensed, this is one of my favorite story.

  11. So..... it will be DEEN huh? Well...... I'm not against it if they can nail the humors right, coz' to me, that's the most important thing


    Oh!! Almost forgot, of course I'd love if they could nail the story right too

    1. the problem about DEEN is their graphic's quality, y'know.

  12. Regardless of how the anime will be, i still have my light novels of Gifting to make my day.

  13. the fu** is going with aqua's skirt{ if it is still considered one in the first place }

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah I am sure she usually wears a very frilly miniskirt with thigh highs. Her design is trying to rip off the princess from the Gate anime a bit (in close comparison they may be nothing alike but at a glance it feels like that style). Anyway its just bad, anime is like 70%+ looks. Do they feel that design will sell more goods than her old one?

      Delete
    2. Nvm looking again those are her legs not brown pants so the skirt is a no frills mini skirt and a nopan design still meh compared to the LN
