    Yes Tokyo ravens on the list, and I agree eith Miyuki being on the list though Id argue for her having a higher spot.

    Mahouka is a relatively new series, it's popularity is still on the rise. It's still too soon to contend with characters from established hits like Index, Oreimo, Sword Art Online, and Oregairu (this years big winner). Next year, after the anime, I would not be surprised if Mahouka dominates.

    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
