Not really complaining about Ryuuou no Oshigoto being that high because in all seriousness it's pretty enjoyable if you ask me.

Glad to see Youjo, KageDaze, and Maou-sama being up there.

Jan 25, 8:21 PM by Wasshio

Maou-sama 2 whennn?

Jan 25, 5:15 PM by Antagonized

I knew that fucking thing would be on top

Jan 25, 3:35 PM by Xaelath

At least the Sangatsu no Lolicon Novel is Legit when it comes to Shogi References, the chess play is long and the story has inspired reality, unlike the anime which has removed a lot of relevant references like Honor and Inspirations.

Jan 25, 3:28 PM by youseiki

Heck yeah Kagedaze

Jan 25, 3:23 PM by Kuroha

Yeah, that loli bait getting a boost from anime.
