    Kagerou Days is a light novel adaption of the Kagerou Project (Kagepro) series of Vocoloid story songs. The songs were a big hit in Japan, the franchise (which also includes a manga) is wildly popular, and an anime is on the way, produced by Shaft (Monogatari Series, Madoka Magica). If you have not heard of it yet, you will.

    Surprised Kokoro Connect is nowhere on that list.

    Mahouka will no doubt get bigger once its anime comes, lets hope its not another anime situatin like Mondaiji tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru soudesuyo? ten episodes

    The main story ended, volume 8 came out last March. Not sure how well it ever sold, I'm still an LN noob, and am more familiar with the anime. The anime was a major flop because of the seiyuu hazing controversy, I am not sure if that effected the novels.

    It's already pretty popular. The second best selling series of the year, five of the bestselling volumes of the year. I have a feeling the hype has already started in Japan, that Mahouka is already being heavily promoted. My expectation is that it will be one of the biggest franchise of the year.

    Since the LN already has 12 volumes, I am guessing the anime will be two cour.
