Yes Tokyo ravens on the list, and I agree eith Miyuki being on the list though Id argue for her having a higher spot.
It's nice to see No Game No Life in the top ten. It has it's flaws, but overall it's a good series. The plot is very clever. Hopefully the anime (already announced) will come out this spring.
I really want Tokyo Ravens translations. The anime is really good, I want to read the original
