Great to see Mahouka doing well. Hopefully it continue to do well for future volumes too!

15. **4,940 **4,940 Jinrou e no Tensei, Maou no Fukukan Vol.1

Oh so this got an LN version? I did read a few chapters some time ago and it felt pretty decent.Guess I'll check it out again to see how our MC handles his conquered town. Vaguely reminded me of Madou Koukaku,but well the circumstances there are completely opposite too ^^

Too bad that Madhouse rarely make sequels.

Ordered the KyouHora girls talk vol 2 but haven't gotten it yet. This one is one year before the beginning of the main story. I heard that the tone was quite darker compared to the other side stories, mostly due to the fact that MC is Masazumi right when she board the Musashi, IE, when she just lost her mother and the "future" she was aiming for, with her sex change left half done. Curious to see the result, because Masazumi is an awesome character~

Lol. Look at Masaki eyeing Miyuki ever so spitefully! It's been a long while I've read Mahouka, so haven't got much of an idea as to what might've gone down afterwards. Should probably catch up..

Nisio titles are still up, although the ranks continue to fall gradually. Well, once Off Season's Vol. 2 comes out next year, it'll easily top the other LNs. Still waiting for his newest Bishounen-Detective series to appear on the list.
