Top 10 Light Novels Franchises of 2015


The 2016 edition of Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! has enlightened readers to its top light novel series of 2015, the ranking more than likely being influenced by the largely popular anime adaptations of most the results, though the top spot has once again been taken (for the 3rd year in a row) by one particularly tale of youthful indiscretion…

The ranking:

1. Oregairu


2. Sword Art Online


3. Tenkyou no Alderamin


4. Eirun Last Code


5. Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?


6. No Game No Life


7. Toaru Majutsu no Index


8. Danmachi


9. Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata


10. Escape Speed

    This is my first time hearing of #5 and.... Jesus Christ, that title. I know light novels have a tendency to have overly long-winded titles, but this one seems particularly glaring because it's literally three sentences. Three sentences which, by themselves, would've been fairly simply yet still perfectly suitable for a title as-is.

    @Sword Art Online

    This isn't me hating on the series, but give it a few years and this will be done. The author has dragged out the Alizication arc out so long that, like with Naruto and its author, you'd have to wonder what he could possibly do with these characters & scenarios. He has taken Kirito as far he can take him, and has put him in the worst possible kind of danger. Kirito has been through so much that anything more, anything beyond this would pail in significance and would simply be the author milking it. Just let Kirito wake up and have him recover with Asuna and get married and shit.

    better idea:

    throw kirito in the world of bloodborne, then have him tackle some insane fucks, including eldritch bastards.

    Cartoon? Really? You think a book with almost no pictures is a cartoon? Are you an idiot?

    No its a light novel not a cartoon. If you cannot tell the difference between a book and a cartoon then please go back to school

    Do you have a problem with the MC being potentially gay? It would just make the character stand out more from generic male MCs.

    Not everyone wants romance and sex in every piece of literature they read. On the contrary, I think most fans read it for the action and the story.

    Eh, light novels don't require very many pictures so they can produced at a low cost compared to manga. So, when story matters most, light novel is a go-to media.

    Yeah, because LNs are so heavy on plot and are very original, totally not recycling the same harem/imouto scenario for the thousandth time.

    Not hating on LNs, but thinking that "LN = more sophisticated" is wrong as can be.

    Agree, manga can show you the things that a light novel can't. Everybody knows what that is.

    Is your imagination that pathetic that without pictures you cannot enjoy a story. If so I pity you.

    I don't think he was talking about it showing you the "story"... Probably more like showing you the fanservice. :P
