I don't think HP and collab are given same weightage unless they changed it.
And monitor group seems to be removed rather than merged. It won't make sense to merge them with collab since their vote distribution is quite different. For the more popular series, Monitor group tends to follow HP trends more and may not really serve much of a purpose; their taste as adolescents despite having read 51 books or more are similar to the general public. This is my opinion. I guess the magazine will state the details of their changes though I'm not getting the mag this year since I'm mostly out of touch and don't feel like picking up a lot of new stuff to read.

Ryuuou is great read especially for my taste but seems over-pushed. Or maybe the later volumes are just that great I'm not sure since I'm not caught up. Or maybe it was over-pushed because there isn't much notable new stuff to push. I don't like having a loli disciple to add to the shuraba, but I guess it needs to have some generic popular element to stay 'relevant'; great stories that don't have some kind of pandering or cliche element can never become popular with majority of otakus it seems (I think).

What makes Ryuuou a lot better than No-rin is not really just the research and the fact that it receives editorial supervision from a Kansai pro shogi unit (baring some similarities to the setting), but that the characters are really more interesting, and there is a 'battle element' in the story on top of a 'coolness' factor; these 3 areas are severely lacking or even absent in No-rin (again my opinion). The humour can be a hit or miss though. I'm shocked that not even the manga is scantalated.

I've been following Gangan GA channel (because I like to watch/hear seiyuu personality hosts) since early this year and that's where I learned about Ryuuou. The LN, manga, and drama CD (with considerable star power; at least I know all the seiyuus in it) were all launched at the same time as part of GA's 10-year anniversary campaign. One thing about GA group in recent years is that they have really upped their promotional and marketing efforts by quite a few notches. I would say they have even more presence than Kadokawa subs in my radar. I even bought a number of new series from GA because of their marketing, but unfortunately they were around average and some I hadn't even finished the first volumes (and may be prejudging).

RE:Zero is likely going to get stronger with upcoming arcs in LN format, the LN version also manages to polish the original WN reasonably well (wrt style, dialogue, prose, redundant and meaningless developments imo ). I hope the LN continues to make smart condensation of some stuff, because the arcs are getting ridiculously longer and longer and if it continues, I doubt I'd have the energy and attention span to follow it anymore. I used to love this kind of pattern but no longer

As for the big 3 of Dengeki, I've stopped reading them completely. I think Kawahara's story-telling is still good and the best among the 3, but I can't find the time ever since I fell behind for SAO and can't be bothered really. Mahouka writer made 2 big lies and I gave up on it after the feeling of being cheated; the detailed setting is still amazing to me and the biggest attraction factor to me and I would still regard it as the best detailed setting among everything I've read despite having dropped it. As for Index, I just felt it became a yawn-fest for me at some point in time, and can't seem to follow it anymore. I guess I just prefer either light-hearted stuff or newer kind of story/developments. Purely my opinion and based on own preference.

No offence taken. If something interesting actually happens, I'm sure the fanbase will make some noise then.

Now I'm quite interested in these supposed 2 big lies made by the Mahouka writer. If you don't want to respond here, can I get a PM regarding what happened?

Yeesssh, that gap in power level. That would explain all those years of domination.

I'm surprised that Othinus has staying power, but even more surprised that the Blood Sign main duo are on the top 10 list.

EDIT:

Haha! Kakeru Kamisato squeezing in at the end.

With so many collaborators able to just swing the top 10 results into any direction they want, maybe they should get rid of the HP group entirely.

So far this year, four new nominees are

Infinite Dendrogram - Licensed
月とライカと吸血姫 (Moon and Laika and Vampire) - GAGAGA work, about the first human to land on the Moon being a vampire (Girl), and encounters a moon boy
僕たちのリメイク (Our Remake) - MF Bunko (this is the one I was surprised by), A bunch of 28 years old who somehow ended up 10 years younger, and want to relive their lives again.
横浜駅SF (Yokohama Station SF) - Kadokawa Books (probably the new hit under the Tankobon section). Has a manga adaption.

(Note, these are the new recommendations for the year)

it is a good sign though, meaning that there are other title that's catching up to the old title as well. Nowadays most titles just reused the template over and over.

^Ryuoh in 1st place again!? That's some heavy pushing by the HPs/collabs.
