I thought we were getting a lot more LN adaptations lately, but now I can't find out half of the work in this TOP. Also, is Classroom of the Elite and Tantei wa mou, Shindeiru still so popular? Maybe we'll get a second season someday?

Really interested in Shunkashuutou Daikousha (Agent of the Four Seasons) after reading the synopsis and looking at the illustrations. It's also by the author of Violet Evergarden so there's going to be a lot of feels it seems. The current volumes is titled the "Spring Dance", so there's probably going to be further volumes set in the other season.
Also really interested in Propeller Opera since it's made by the author of Hikuushi series. It ended this year at 5 volumes, so it's not very long. Decided to buy them all.

And here I'm interested in My best couple Hikkigaya and Yukinoshita, even after ending.
They both ranked same 3rd.
See even world knows, they're couple.

Having Ayanokouji at top is nothing surprising, but what that main dude of Detective is already dead doing there.

Just came across this now, no idea how I missed it in the first place.

Lots of titles I've never seen before (like always, lol), so here's to hoping for more anime adaptions.

At least there's a lot of familiar characters though. A little saddened to not see Misaka Mikoto at all in the list but well.

My favorites are going strong in the rankings especially COTE. The sheer dominance on all category. And congrats to Chitose ramune for winning 2nd straight is amazing. Waiting for the english release of the LN. And Otonari tenshi sama too, Mahiru best girl

Hmm seems they just shoved the isekai onto the book ranking instead of the LN ranking so the romcoms won't get obliterated and they wouldn't be able to market the new ones.

LMAO
isekai reigns supreme

It's just the size of the book. The light novel section is actually bunkobon in Japanese
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunkobon

The book section is Tankobon
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank%C5%8Dbon

Tankobon is bigger and more expensive than Bunkobon.
