Go there, backtrack a few pages or two, probably you'll find something relevant of interest...

You don't have to think so hard, she's just a good Tsundere.

(on a serious note, I do have problems with the common consumer mentalities, else I'd stay being a retail assistant rather than pursuing a degree)
The point is unlike an actual romance series, there isn't really alot of viable alternatives to ship around without cracking it up.

I was just kidding, but it is sad that there's not alot of high profile male protagonists.... That's not to say there isn't any good ones, but they just don't leave alot of impression.

1. Exactly my problem with it! Ah, but I guess for that I will have settle with "a man's meat is another's poison" isn't it.

2. Yeah, but that doesn't stop people for wanting them right

3. Aren't we in a time and age where people would rather talk about the heroines? Besides, you do remember that one conversation between a Hero and Demon King right? I think that's quite relevant.

4. That might be something we have to talk about in a convo...

Rikka no Yuusha is so heavily skewed by the 協力者 votes... ridiculous. Has anyone ever read it?

Biblia Koshodou is not included in the ranking? Is it not considered as light novel?

I rec'ed it a while back but author keeps delaying the publication date. Book II (which continued to be brilliant) was delayed for a month, then Book III was delayed for 3 months (scheduled to be released the 22nd of this month last time I check)!!! Hope the trend doesn't continue but otherwise still very highly recommended. PS: It's Rokka btw, even though Rikka's used in Chuunibyou.

Very happy that Kino's still there (loved the anime, but the LN's just too big a hole to jump in). I'm probably going to piss the entire group of people off but Mahouka's probably the most undeserving of its rank. I almost want to see it animated just to see the series get trolled to death (probably won't even watch it). Man volume 1 was pretty darn decent then it just drops down the toilet at rate of exponential decay or something (rettousei is the most ridiculous misnomer). I really want to see the vote breakdown for this.

Anyways, the "critics"' votes are the ones that are most valuable (imo) anyway. Too bad MW Bunko isn't consider a light novel, otherwise we all know which series would be on top of every single ranking.

EDIT: @kuroishinigami I took so long to type that you posted before I hit submit
EDIT2: Offtopic, very good post from Doraneko back earlier this year for anyone who missed it.
EDIT3: While on the topic of chuunibyou, for anyone who likes this topic, consider reading Aura from Tanaka Romeo. Anime PVs here and here (2nd PV's more ... related, but ... kinda wrong impression hahaha). One of my top 5 LN for the past 2 years. Extremely well written and heartfelt.

LOL, you can't piss people more than me, because I personally think SAO is the most undeserving of its rank. And I honestly think volume 1 is still the best volume for SAO. What it sucks most for me is how Kawahara tries to build fiction around real-world science and technology in which he has not the slightest clue and knowledge about, and I have to heavily apply the suspension of disbelief many times.

Oh well, good to know the rankings before I fly off. Long day for me tomorrow and flying off on Sunday. Will not be around for quite a while, so cya guys and gals.

EDIT: Oh yeah, I'm really really pleased to see illustrator (now writer as well) Kamiya Yuu's series taking a spot. To top it off, he's half Italian, so just wow.

With the Index movie and Railgun S coming out next year, as well as OreImo S2 and Haganai S2, maybe even the Kizu Movie, perhaps things would get slightly unpredictable again next year... Unless SAO is being stubborn.
