People like Swagernator are exactly what the ignored users function is made for. They bring nothing of value whatsoever to any thread they post on, yet insist on trying to post on as many threads as they possibly can.

I'm still amazed at how much Hidan no Aria sold. I mean I don't really see where it is going story wise after they beat EU. Who know since it's been a while that I read it. Still like Reki catchphrase though.

Haha lol, a butthurt guy. May I know which series is supposed to top the charts then?
The series on top of the charts are due to their high entertainment value. Not all the readers have the time to read less popular and less entertainment value cult hits because they have a life unlike us.
That is why I hate people who hate on mainstream series just to get a superficial feeling of being an 'elitist'. Yes, Naruto, Bleach and One Piece are far better than elitist shows like LotGH, NGE, Cowboy Bebop, TTGL etc. etc.

So even japan has bad taste now... bnha thrash is no1... sad... this is why actual good stuff can't get season2.

@Swagernator Didn't I argue with you a few days ago, cuz I called bnha garbage? And now here you are saying the same lol. Or was it someone else?

"Hero of Justice? A world where no one is hurt?" Don't be absurd. "Humanity" is the name for an animal that cannot find joy in life without sacrifice. The pretty lie that is "equality" is nonsense spouted by weaklings who cannot look upon the darkness. Nothing but an excuse to cover up life's ugliness.

The top 20 of LN is a paradise (SAO, Re Zero, Overlord, Gamers, Mahouka, Konosuba...)

On the other side the majority of top 20 manga are crap(Soma and Neverland are the only good stuff there). Mainstream people are so boring...

Nah, so far all you're doing is spreading hate.
Can't present your opinion on something you've neither watched nor read.

This manga's plot is amazing and unique to find these days, it's the one that deserves an anime adaption the most.

Yakusoku no Neverland's success really pleases me a lot. 56+ chapters and running strong still.

I hope this trend continues for rest of the year.

He's been making the same stupid whining comments in every thread like this so what is so surprising about people getting tried of it? Regardless of what side you sit on there is a time to stop sounding like a broken record.

Is the SAO LN really that good? I can't bring myself to read it because all the hate and insult it received, so I'm wondering if it's really worth being at the top of every LN sale list...

I wouldn't call myself a SAO fan, and it's certainly not the best LN series I've read, but it is a good series.

If you're curious, read it for yourself, and go in with a neutral opinion rather than one shaped by haters, or indeed shaped by the anime at all.

It's worth pointing out that basically none of the actual criticism (as opposed to the bandwagon "it's cool to hate this series/x famous youtuber didn't like this series" that is the real reasoning behind most of the haters) people put on the anime applies to the novels at all, instead coming predominantly from the fact that the anime throws in side stories that are actually in later volumes of the series or SAO Progressive. Looking through all the top reviews of the anime on this site, this is the direct cause of their first and top complaint every time.
