Give it a Light Novel Title

A Tag from Shallow Dives in Anime!

In ancient days, Dewbond from Shallow Dives in Anime created a tag called Give it a Light Novel Title. By ancient, I mean February 2020, which is, from where I sit in the USA, one month PC (Pre-COVID). I felt honored that he tagged me in the tag’s inaugural post. While I was already feeling guilty about not getting to this quickly enough, several other sites tagged me, too, like (listed with the earliest tags first):

So, in addition to Dewbond, I’d like to thank to Lumi, Pinkie, Matt Doyle, and Dana for the tag. Now, let’s see what I can do with it!

The Rules

All tags have rules, unless it’s a tag where that explicitly prohibits rules, in which case, that’s a rule. So there are still rules.

Here are the rules for the Give it a Light Novel Title tag, copied verbatim from the Source of the Tag:

  • 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.
  • Include Give it a Light Novel title in your tags so everyone including myself can find them all easily.
  • Nominate around 1-6 bloggers (see below).

My Contribution to Give it a Light Novel Title

I just want to say for the record: While this was a ton of fun, humor is hard! I hope that you enjoy what I’ve come up with!

WARNING: My alternative title for Tower of God includes a spoiler. Please be aware!

  1. Lol….I had to laugh at the Hundred….of course you were going to say ego…I mean there’s nothing else that could possibly be said in that sentence right? I mean I’ve seen that one, and I definitely would not be able to think of anything else 😂😂 Gotta love Another….one of my favorite animes (and I immediately had to think back on that umbrella scene🙈)
    I agree by the way: Karandi has to come back…let’s start working on that 😊

    1. Eyes might have worked! She had very large eyes. Though they weren’t always the center of attention…

      That umbrella scene still gives me chills.

      “I agree by the way: Karandi has to come back…let’s start working on that ”

      In early July, K at the Movies (https://katthemovies.wordpress.com/) launched a campaign to highlight several of Karandi’s posts from 100 Word Anime (https://100wordanime.blog/). I miss her work and contributions to the community, but most of all, I’m worried about her.

      1. Lol…yeah, eyes might definitely have worked 😂 Hundred could have been such a good show…it really had so much potential 😔
        As for Karandi, I know what you mean. I am worried too. As you know I have been away for quite a while, but I was pretty shocked when I returned that Karandi was gone, and for a while as well. I already sent her a message a while back, but so far she hasn’t read it. I really hope she is okay. I definitely miss her.

  2. You know, I always have trouble google Another with getting all sorts of ..this another anime about… think your title is an improvement.

Please let me know what you think!
