I think we've heard that it exceed 1 million...
I don't know whether it's number 1 or not, but it must be somewhere up there in the ranking.

he tried to find a way to fake Misuzu's death during SS1!? I have to give credit to him then. He's so unlucky or VERY lucky to face Touma instead of Accelerator then. :P

He faced both of them- Accelerator was sent specifically to *kill* Misuzu, but refrained from it when he attempted to protect his girl. On the other hand, Touma just plain punched him out.

Also, thank Xenosnake for telling me that it hasn't been translated yet. I'll be looking forward to the time when it is.

plant correct me if I'm wrong but the second column is for the volume right? It's already night and I know I should be sleeping but I don't think I'm that drowsy yet to mistaken that guin saga got a freaking 138..... light novel.

WHAT KIND OF LIGHT NOVEL IS THAT!!!!

on that list the only novel I'm familiar with aside from index is slayers, orphen, and FMP!.

Is their an english translation or english release for those in top? like haruhi and spice wolf which did have a release in english book.

There is also a problem with Guin Saga- it's over 138 volumes long, and there were more scheduled to be released before the author died. It's amazingly long, so I'm not surprised that it manages to edge out other light novels. Even if it has a small fanbase, if they buy each of the books, and the 20+ side/extra novels... that really adds up.

I think the next novel will be SS3. Kamachi even said the next novel would focus on the other characters after the war, that sounds like a SS to me. It also makes sense because Kamachi always writes a SS novel after major arcs end.

If so, I hope it'll come bundled with the Index S2 BDs... I want volume 23 so badly...

Eh? SS novels come out just like ordinary novels. Besides, it's important to cover what after math of the war is on the world and characters before moving forward.

The event in Russia should prove it. He's not Touma and Aqua that would worry about others' well-being than what he deems important to him (Rikou), the rest is not in his mind.
And such, I still think that Accelerator is a better guy than Hamazura. He fought against Kakune while protecting innocent bystanders! He never messed with innocent people either (besides Touma).
I'm completely neutral about Shiage. I think he's a nice guy, except he does look kinda stupid on the cover of volume 21.

Well on his defence, I say at least he really apports with the romantic part of the series, unlike Touma and Accelerator.

He has one and the other somehow just refuses to give him up.
