Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).

There isn't a Q3 thread and I'm just so excited by this potential one, but this popped up on Amazon. Stardust Crusaders English dub looks very likely now. I am going to cream my pants so much

[/spoiler]I'll add the title as soon as an announcement is made by Warner or its affiliates (whether that be this quarter or the next doesn't matter).

Just figured that I'd mention that it seems to be the case that the licenses for Punchline and Igai: The Play Dead/Alive have somehow been missed out from the main post in the most recent update.

Unintended leak by the looks of it. Anime Limited had said that they're waiting to tomorrow for their other announcement, and the link has been taken down.
