    I got one of these because the picture on the front was nice but I discovered to my disappointment that there's nothing but a bunch of words inside. Are you supposed to put your dick between the pages or something? I can't figure out what to do with it.

    Usually, you are supposed to let your eyes wonder all over the words, and occasionally laugh and/or make weird faces.

    At least that's how it was in the 20th century ... I feel old.

    Why do you think they are called Light "Novels"?

    Ever read a book before?

    Heh, this is a nice, subtly sardonic comment about the current state of LN's.

    Of course the two people that replied so far have a bunch of wind blowing through their hair.

    sarcasm translation:

    *hand on forehead*

    "OOOOOOH, woe.. WOE is meeeee.... OOooh, the skin being shown is a detriment to my classy being... You know I'm classy because I am experiencing the winter of emotions as a result of art showing skin not being banned from my high class literature... One day, OH... one day, everyone may see the evils of shown skin and return to the days of roomy jumpsuits and fedoras for all..."

    That's all I could make out.

    No need to thank me!

    AKA: list of all the more evidences beta Jap males needing pathetic self-centered ego boost through Gary Stu fantasies.

    It's like the equivalent of Twilight tweens, only male and with much bigger age range but still with the same amount of mental maturity.

    Need to jack off their egos as much as their tiny, tiny penises.

    only idiots get married these days. Those beta male got more money to bang more chicks in their life time even if their dicks are small. These days, your bank account is the new dick size. All my considered beta male friends use prostitutes monthly if not weekly... for me, I am the true beta male... fapping at anime or building robots and writing codes... Since I am kind of a Christian and I don't go to prostitution as a solution. Ahhhhh, now I wanna kill myself. Btw, I hate reading bunch of text about how a cute boy gets all the chicks while I am here jacking off 2D anime. Hentai is more of my taste.

    Oh excuse me, which part of S2 did you not see that it kept sucking on Kirito's dick with all supposed "cool" plot as written by the mind of a 14 years old?

    OMG people are dying from an MMO again! I'm not ripping off .hack enough!
    OMG Kirito instantly has the ability to win against all guns with a friggin knife for no supposed reason because this is SWORD Art Online and not Logic Art Online!
    OMG Sinon immediately trusted Kirito and fell for him with no reasons given!
    OMG the random nurse also fell for him for no particular reason even if she's uber minor, because the notion of any respectable girls not liking Kirito is just blasphemous!
    OMG Death Gun kills people for the lulz! Because I can't write villains with better motivations or depths than that!
    OMG Kirito survives thanks to dumb plot convenient electrode on his chest! Way to go plot armor ex machina!
    OMG Klein why are you still even alive!? Oh yes we need another male just to contrast with him in order to show how awesome Kirito is!
    OMG Yuuki is implied to be stronger than Kirito, but I still have to tell the audiences that Kirito ONLY lost because he held back!
    OMG Asuna's arc! She's going to prove her independence now by relying on Kirito to do everything for her!
    OMG Mother's Rosario! It's an attack that pokes you 11 times, that's a big deal!
    OMG Yuuki's gonna die! Of course we can't leave anyone implied to be stronger than Kirito alive for too long!
    OMG Yuuki's dying and a bunch of nameless characters showed up, that's so dramatic!

    Maybe, but truth is, bot Index novels included were outstanding. Clearly in the best 5 of the whole series, not just New Testament.

    Well, considering there are three ex-aequo #9, it's good that they only mixed two out of three of them.

    Also, it just so happens that there are 11 light novel volumes listed in total. 'Tis silly.

    Honestly, it wasn't that great. For a volume finally covering Misaki Shokuhō and pre-memory loss Touma, it fell kinda flat. The fact it placed higher than NT vol 10 is rather surprising, and NT vol 9 should be way higher on the list than all that SoA crap.

    You confused the pictures for Accel World Vol 17 and Eromanga Sensei Vol 1.

    Shit list missing 2,4 and 7?

    Some series are tied so they skip the following numbers. Two series are tied for first so they skip 2, two are tied for third so they skip 4, and two are tied for sixth so they skip 7. Notice how three series are tied for ninth, if they continued the list, they'd continue at 12.

    It isn't a mistake, some of these light novels share the same position.

    If only I could read japanese... Instead I have to wait for fans to translate the novels.. if they ever do, because everything is getting licensed by fucking Yen-Press these days.

    I can read Japanese. Still not worth the time or effort to read any of these. Too much Vidya to play.

    if it was only 1 or 2 hours, it wouldn't be an issue, specially when learning new kanji, you will review it for hours specially when it starts to accumulate.

    That's a GOOD thing. I prefer to read manga in official book format.
