Top 15 Anime Based on Light Novels


The light novel – a genre which at its loosest could be defined as any novel with an anime-style cover, periodic illustrations and, of course, a sparsity of text inversely proportional to the length of its title – having apparently long since outstripped manga and visual novels as the premier source material for late night anime adaptations, it is only fitting that the best such adaptations be ranked by the viewers who lap them up.

The ranking:

1. Infinite Stratos

2. Sword Art Online

3. A Certain Magical Index

4. Sakura-sou no Pet na Kanojo

5. Hyouka

6. Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

7. Baka to Test

8. Ore no Imouto

9. Haruhi

10. Bakemonogatari

11. Kokoro Connect

12. Accel World

13. Chuunibyou

14. Spice & Wolf

15. Durarara!!
