    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

    Top 10 2015

    Spoiler show


    Source

    Oregairu and Index completely dominated, I know Touma, Accel and Mikoto(who lost her 1st place for the first time) are guaranteed to be in the top but 4 females in the top 10...Othinus wasn't even that interesting, and Index herself...

    The top 10 LNs are full of names I don't know(5 to 9). Then again it's because of this top that I got interested in Rokka no Yuusha, some of them must be good.

    Re: Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi!

    Character list is so odd considering the lack of characters from lna placed below five (except for one male). I guess new contenders for anime.

    Me neither, but that's great to know

    You are aware that there will be a second season during the upcoming Spring?

    I did not know but that means a happy news

    I wonder if the novel listed in No. 5-10 has translation though?

    They are not, I didn't found translations at least. Two chapters of Alderamin are translated on BT but that's all.

    Oh well that's saddening to hear. These days LN translations tend to be scattered throughout blogs anyway, so I thought there are some people out there who are willing to translate those, hopefully.
