I didn't know that Hidan no Aria's light novels were still ongoing but I'm glad to see that Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e volume 7.5 at least made the top 3 (though I'm surprised to see it at #1).

Quite shocked that Ryuuou Oshigoto didn't top the week for its loli service... Well I guess Youkoso's cover is pretty loli enough.

Wow, is Classroom so well sold? I thought that boost to sales quickly ended after the end of its airing and disputes around the adaptation.

Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

Your family doctor will surely agree you need a better eye sight that automatically calculates loli % on 2D. I would suggest you visit your doctor as soon as possible.

Who are you referring to when you said "she"? Me or the loli in the Youkoso cover, I didn't quite understand you...

Best girl is on the cover, people will buy that stuff like hotcakes. (LN readers didn't like the anime because Lerche shafted this character in to the trash and ofcourse the skipping around leaving out information.)

You both are prolly basing your opinions from the anime. Which was bad compared to the ln. Also the anime stopped when the ln gets really good so there is that. I mean maybe it isn't your cup of tea, but still you should not judge the ln based on the anime that wasn't even well recived.

Oh, thanks for the answer. I've heard about the controversy surrounding adaptation, but I did not know how people relate to the original LN.

Well it's still least appealing least in my eye.
Despite the bad adaptation idk how to respond the character and the illogical story itself.

That's my opinion, take it with a grain of salt.
The MC reminds me of the Kaneki edgyness after He gets a white hair, boi suddenly everyone start liking him.
Then we got this MCkun throwing edgy quote in the end of anime adaptation.

I judge least i don't force my opinion to others , love the shit talk though after tons of people saying it's a trash even for the LN on MAL forum during it was airing and after airing.
After i watched it am not sure i could agree with them or its actually pretty much alright.
Since i didn't know what to do i didn't bother to put a score for it, likely it'll range between 3 or 8 lul

I understand completly. I personaly liked the anime. After reading the novel I like it less, but it's still ok. I mean I can understand people who say his edgeness was out of left field since the anime cut a lot of his monologues in first two volumes so it seems that way. But the truth is this novel really takes off at V4 where we finally see the mc's true face and the best girl makes her debut as one of the mains actually.

I find it a bit crazy to believe that Hidan no Aria actually has 27 volumes out. I mean I don't dislike the show but I can't say it ever gave off the impression of something that was going to be running forever

Blame lerche or producer knowing most LN adaptation that jumbled up in 12 episodes ends up a failure or mediocre if they decided to adapt 3/4, volume and cutting some necessary scene.

It makes me think that most of them are nothing but an advertisement.

Why? The LN is excellent. The adaptation may be garbage but the LN is top notch.

That's what people are forgetting: Anime is primarily an advertisement for the source material

I was just quoting star wars LOL. Haven't read the LN, but the anime was edgy and ubelievably, pretentious. It's like they wanted to cram everything in a normal school setting (that survival island arc), or say, talk about social hierarchy and other heavy subjects with no basis on the narrative. Being set in a high school and trying to tackle everything in such a serious manner makes it the more ridiculous. I doubt the LN would be something I'd like based on my opinion tbh, but I can't speak with certainty.

Well, if it's not to your liking, fair enough.

But calling it terrible just because it isn't to your liking and you haven't even read it, I don't think that's very fair.
