I’m planning on picking up something after some time (a fortnight or so). If you have any suggestions, please leave them on the poll or the comments. If possible, please leave a comment showing why the series should be picked up. Also, I would prefer something cute or fluffy. My preference goes out for romance, slice-of-life and stuff with food. My only problem would be that I have an aversion to harem, ntr, R-19, and extreme violence.
I put up some options for now, and I will gladly receive any other suggestions you may have. Please leave those suggestions in the ‘other’ section of the poll or in the comments, and I will add those suggestions as an option.
Please bear in mind that what is selected here will not necessarily become the next series I translate; should I not like reading the suggested series, I may not choose to translate it.
Brief explanations about the options so far:
The Other World Dining Hall (WN):

Miniature Garden Chemister:
Raw link: http://ncode.syosetu.com/n4084cc/
NU link: N/A
Reason: The protagonist is cute and the series is light-hearted, quite a lot like ‘Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear’.
Tensei Shite Inaka de Slowlife wo Okuritai:
Raw link: http://ncode.syosetu.com/n5375cy/
NU link: http://www.novelupdates.com/series/tensei-shite-inaka-de-slowlife-wo-okuritai/
Reason: It’s a marvellous piece of slice-of-life comedy. Really good for getting laughs out of.
Just remembered this series.
Carefree VRMMO Log:
Raw link: http://www.alphapolis.co.jp/content/cover/646068239

NU link: http://www.novelupdates.com/series/muyoku-no-seijo-wa-okane-ni-tokimeku/
Reason: Haven’t read all, but it looks like an interesting gender bender novel with plenty of misunderstandings so far.

Legend of the Continental Heroes
Raw link: http://ncode.syosetu.com/n7105co/
NU link: http://www.novelupdates.com/series/legend-of-the-continental-heroes/
Reason: How did I miss out on this wonderful history and military novel! Though this is very unlike the series I have translated, my love for history wins out. This novel is quite similar to Alderamin. (Edit: Finished reading the raws for this series. Amazing military action and tactics, plus political intrigue. Also, it doesn’t grow as dark as Alderamin, maintaining a somewhat cheerful mood. Though, a small harem is formed later for the protagonist, but it’s not too bad. The love triangle exists for the sake of entertaining the readers at the cost of the protagonist’s sanity.)
I got a suggestion called ‘Lizardly Me (トカゲなわたし)’, but I can’t find the raws (web novel version) online. Looks like the author took down the web novel chapters after the story was published as a light novel. I won’t be translating light novels as that’s akin to piracy, in my philosophy.
Of course, I would love to pick up everything, but unfortunately I do not have enough brains and bodies for that. I could probably pick up two more at most, as I already have two other series I am already translating.
